The P&F are running a wine drive as part of our fundraising initiative.
Please look out for order forms that went home last week with your eldest child. A form is also attached to this newsletter.
If this is something that interests you, please have order forms to Lisa Slocum or myself by 7 of September at the latest. Please feel free to share the order form with friends and family.
Wines are from Hayshed Hill Winery and have been discounted for our fundraiser. For every case sold $40 will be donated to our school.
Wines will be delivered to the school by 10 September for distribution. 🍷🥂
The Entertainment book is still available for those who may be interested. To purchase simply use the link below.
Don’t forget to mention that you are from St Columba’s if you make a purchase at the 777 Pharmacies at Bayswater or Maylands. For every retail purchase made 777 Pharmacy will donate 10% back to our school!
Curious Creatures Wild Minds
Dates: 17th – 23th October 2020
Dress Up Parade (Kindy-Year 6)
Monday 19th October
All students Kindy to Year 6 are invited to come to school dressed as their favourite book character. The purpose of this event is to celebrate Book Week, therefore the focus is on participation rather than the costume.
Why not recyle a costume, or put together something from home!
Please keep it simple and stress free
Please note: Costumes are not restricted to ‘Curious Creatures Wild Minds’ theme.
The library has lots of books needing covering. If you can help out by taking a small number of books home to cover, please call into the library. Your help is greatly appreciated by staff and students.
If any families have Children’s Magazines that they no longer need, the students would enjoy reading them.
ALL students require a
‘St Columba’s Homework/Library bag’
to borrow library books.
Students without the St Columba’s bag will be unable to borrow from the beginning of Term 3
Just a reminder that students require the school green ‘Homework and Library Bag’ in order to borrow from the Library.
Many students will already have the green school ’Homework and Library Bag’ from previous years.
‘Homework and Library Bags’ can be purchased from the Uniform Shop at a cost of $10.
Parents please order via the link on the Uniform Shop page of the school website.

School Banking is back.
School Banking is back. School Banking Day will be THURSDAY 8:15-8:30AM, in the CANTEEN commencing on 6TH AUGUST 2020.
All school banking contacts will be run in line with WA Government regulations regarding COVID19 including cleaning of all surfaces prior to banking starting, hand sanitising for all students and parents, and social distancing for all students. All prizes are individually wrapped and sealed.
School Banking is a fun, interactive and engaging way to help young Australians learn about money and practice good savings habits. For each weekly deposit made at school, students will receive a token. Once they collect 10 tokens, they can redeem them for a School Banking reward.
Exciting news for TERM 3 is that CommBank will be rewarding all bankers who deposited in Term 1 with the option of an EXTRA prize. Come down and speak with your School Banking Coordinator Ariane Mazurak on Thursday morning about what is on offer.
If your child has lost their deposit wallet, please contact your School Banking Co-ordinator Ariane Mazurak for a replacement via the school office.
If you would like to know more about School Banking, please ask for a 2020 School Banking program parent guide from the school office or visit www.commbank.com.au/schoolbanking
