TERM 3, WEEK 9, 12th September 2018.



Dear Parents & Guardians



  • Thank you to the dads and family members who came along to the Fathers’ Day Breakfast to celebrate Fathers’ Day a couple of Friday’s ago. It was appreciated by staff having a few mums to help prepare and serve the breakfast!
  • Thank you to the families who came along to Open Night to view your child’s work. It was great to receive comments of appreciation for all the hard work the teachers and staff do as members of the St Gerard’s School community.
  • Thank you to the families who were able to support the School Library’s Book Fair by purchasing some children’s books. The Library will benefit by receiving a few library books to add to its shelves from Ashton Scholastic for our fundraising efforts. Well done!
  • Thank you to families for organising a donation towards your child’s class stall to celebrate Mercy Day later this week on Friday 14th September.



Tomorrow, Thursday 13th September is our St Gerard’s Sports Carnival to be held at Robertsbridge Reserve in Nollamara.   We hope to have a fine day (no rain) and to have lots of families come along to cheer the students from Quinn (Red), McAuley (Gold), Sullivan (Green) and Aldous (Blue).

Students will walk in their class groups to and from the venue. There will be a designated lunch break at which time the students will be able to spend some time with any family members attending, perhaps sharing a picnic lunch together. We hope to see you at Robertsbridge Reserve!



On Friday 14th September, the St Gerard’s staff and students will celebrate Mercy Day. A note with details has been sent to each family. Each class is responsible for organising a stall and teachers of your child’s class have sent instructions on how to contribute to the class stall.   Students will be able to wear free dress on Friday for a gold coin donation and bring along some spending money to spend at the stalls.

In the afternoon from 1.00pm we will be entertained by students in the St Gerard’s Has Talent contest. Families are welcome to come along to the Fete from 11am and the Talent Show from 1.00pm.

All money raised will support the Mercy Sisters in their charitable work. Thank you for your support!



The last day of term is next week on Friday 21st September. Students are able to wear their favourite sports gear to celebrate the AFL grand final and other sporting codes major events on this day for a ‘gold coin’ donation.


Term 4, will resume on Monday 8th October for all students. Students will change over into their summer uniform for Term Four. The transition from Winter to Summer uniform needs to occur between Monday 8th October to Friday 19th October giving families two weeks to make the change-over.




Best wishes!
