Merry Christmas

Dear parents, carers and the St Joseph's community,

Thank you for a wonderful year! I wish you all a happy and holy Christmas and look forward to welcoming you all back next year.

As a way to show you just what our community is about, below is a photo of the Parish Centre today, with all of the donations that were provided to St Vincent de Paul, to go to those in our area to make Christmas just that little bit more enjoyable.

Thank you!!

Merry Christmas,

Cameron Tarrant

Principal

End of Year Carols and BBQ - CANCELLED

Dear Parents and Carers,

It is very unfortunate that we have had to cancel our End of Year Carols and BBQ this evening. Advice given from the Chief Health Officer over the past week has recommended that outdoor activities in schools be limited or cancelled due to poor air quality. While this advice is not currently in place for today, due to recent deteriorating conditions late in the afternoon, the decision has been taken to cancel the carols tonight. 

Due to the expected heat today, we are unable to move the carols to the hall as we would need to keep the doors and windows closed to stop the smoke from coming in. For the safety of all we are unable to go ahead with the evening.

I am very sorry to all the children who have been rehearsing over the last couple of weeks and to our wonderful parents who look forward to this special event. Thank you to the P&F and YMCA who have been preparing to run the BBQ tonight. We will now be ready for the Welcome BBQ in 2020!

On Thursday morning at 9.15am, our Foundation students will be leading the final Advent Prayer Celebration followed by their performance of the Nativity. After this, all classes will be invited to perform their chosen carols for the school. All parents are warmly welcome to attend. 

As part of the final day's celebrations, all students will be given an icy pole during first break. 

Once again, this is unfortunate, but a necessary precaution in the current conditions.

Peace and blessings during this Christmas season,

Cameron Tarrant

Principal
