Dear Parents & Guardians

 

 

SACRAMENT OF PENANCE

Congratulations to our Year 3 candidates who received the Sacrament of Penance last night in a liturgy at St Gerard Majella Church. Thank you to parents and family members for supporting these young people with their faith journey.

 

DISCOUNTED SCHOOL FEES 2019

As recently communicated in a letter to all families, school fees from Kindergarten to Year 6 will be capped for ALL FAMILIES from 2019 at $390 per child, with further discounts available for multiple enrolments. It is important for the School to continue to record families on a Health Care Card so please keep the School Office informed throughout 2019.   If you have any family or friends who would like to join the St Gerard’s Primary School Community next year and receive a quality education please get them to call Mrs Quick in the Office for an enrolment pack and to answer any questions. See page 3 for a summary of fees for 2019.

 

SCHOOL ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING (PLEASE NOTE CHANGE OF DATE)

All parents and guardians are invited to the School AGM on Tuesday 27th November at 6.15pm in the School Library. At this meeting the School Financial Report will be tabled, a report on the School’s activities during 2018 will be presented and Staffing for 2019 will be announced.

If you would like to serve on the St Gerard’s School Board in 2019 please nominate yourself on the slip below. The School Board helps the Principal make some decisions on the running of the School’s finances and hears about coming events and activities planned for the students’ benefit. The School Board meets once a term at a time to suit all the members. This amounts to about 10 meetings over the year which generally last less than an hour. I would urge you to consider nominating to serve on the St Gerard’s School Board.

REMINDER NATIVITY PRESENTATION

A reminder that all students from Kindergarten to Year 6 are required to attend the School Nativity presentation to the School Community on Friday 23rd November from 7.00pm. Parents and guardians are asked to organise everything to ensure you have your children here for this celebration.

 

BOOKLIST CHARGES

In line with the recent announcement of the Affordable Schools Project, booklist fees for 2019 are being waived for families and the cost will be carried by the School. Returning families at the beginning of next year are just asked to provide a set of over-ear headphones (not earbud type) with jack, two boxes of tissues, art shirt (an oversized T or buttoned long sleeve shirt) and a Library Bag for borrowing books.
