The library is a calming and quiet place, making it the perfect spot for students to have a smooth and calming transition in the morning.
Students may like to return and borrow books before school.
Looking forward to seeing you the library.
Students may also use this time to exchange their library book.
Just a reminder that students require the school green

The library has lots of books needing covering. If you can help by taking a small number of books home to cover, please advise the library. Your help is greatly appreciated by staff and students.

Religious Education and Curriculum News
From our Year 4’s
All the Year Four students participated in their First Holy Communion Reflection Day in preparation for last weekends celebration. The students took part in a range of activities, and they reflected on the significance of receiving Holy Communion. Each child created a banner with the symbols of Holy Communion which they will cherish as a keepsake.
From our Kindergarten Classes
In Kindy we have been measuring the length of objects using arbitrary units and counting with one to one correspondence. We are very clever cookies!
We have had an amazing start to the season with over 100 students signed up for Columba Runners so far. We are still welcoming members, even if you can only make one of the sessions a week. Sessions are held at Frank Drago oval 3.10-4.10pm on Mondays and Wednesdays. Cost is $30 per child, parents can join free! Prizes awarded based on total kilometers achieved over both terms, including those brave enough parents! Please complete the online registration.
This club is run by volunteers. Any parents who are able to attend and assist with marking laps and encouraging everyone, we would love to have you. Those attending OSHC are also considered, please chat to the lovely Jess.
If your child is in Yr 2 and below, they must be accompanied by a parent or older sibling. It is the responsibility of the parent/caregiver to ensure the safety of the students between school and Frank Drago.
