P & F News


The next meeting is on Tuesday 17th May at 7pm.


Term 1 Sausage Sizzle

The first fundraising item on the agenda for 2022 was to be the Swimming Carnival Sausage Sizzle. As the Swimming Carnival has been postponed to term 4, we would still like to hold a sausage sizzle for the students on Tuesday 5th of April to celebrate the end of first term.

Forms for orders will be electronic and payments are to be made through direct bank transfer only. All details will be on the form sent out next week.


CSPWA Wine Fundraiser

To kickstart the fundraising this year and to get ready for the Easter school holidays the CSPWA along with Hay Shed Hill Winery are running a wine fundraiser.

The focus for this fundraiser is to raise money to purchase Literacy resources for the school. Each case ordered earns $30-$40 so the more cases ordered the more money we will have to donate to the school to purchase Literacy resources.

If you would like to order, please fill in the order form attached to the newsletter and send it to simonnemoretta@gmail.com. Forms have also been sent home to the eldest in the family today. Please send the order form to family and friends so they can enjoy the fundraising specials and help the CSPWA.

All orders need to be returned before Friday 1st April.

Orders will be ready for collection from the school in week 10 from Wednesday 6th April.

Religious Education and Curriculum News

From our Year 3’s

In Year 3 we are focusing on Lent and Easter in Religion. Lent is a new beginning for the friends of Jesus. It is a time for people to love others as Jesus did and remember what Jesus did in his life. The season of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday.

Year 3 students displayed the St Columba’s School Value of Respect when they participated in our classroom liturgy for Ash Wednesday. They were reflective when receiving the blessed ashes from Mr Coniglio.

Students designed a poster to show how people pray to become closer to God, help others by doing good work and go without things they like during Lent.

From our Year 1’s

The Year One’s have been doing amazing work with their numbers this term. This week they are focusing on skip counting by 2’s.
