Dear Parents & Guardians


Mothers’ Day

This Friday, 12th May the Pre Primary students are presenting a liturgy for Mums starting at 8.40am in the School Hall. Beforehand, the staff are preparing a breakfast for any mums who would like to come along to a cooked breakfast. The breakfast will run from 7.45am until 8.30am in the school undercover area.  You are all welcome!




Year 3 & 5 students across all Australian schools are sitting some tests in language conventions, writing, reading and numeracy this week. We wish all St Gerard’s students well!



Nature based Playground OPENING

We will have an official opening and dedication of the new Nature based Playground on Friday next week, 19th May. Please join us for the official opening and some refreshments starting at 8.40am (weather permitting). If you can’t make it for the Opening, you are welcome to visit the playground at home time later that day for a guided tour between 2.45pm and 3.15pm.



Term Two School Uniform

All students should be in their Winter school uniform now.



Bunnings Sausage Sizzle—Help Please

We are raising funds for the Year 6 Camp which is being held later this year. By fundraising we will be reducing the overall cost to families. If you can help at this year’s Bunnings Sausage Sizzle, held on Sunday 28th May at the Balcatta store for an hour or so by preparing, cooking, or serving that would be appreciated. Helpers need to be over 15 years of age and wear closed footwear. If you can spare an hour of your time please fill in the reply slip below. Your help is greatly appreciated! We will confirm a time with all helpers. Thanks!



Kindergarten Enrolments

I am currently interviewing families who would like to enrol their child in the Three Year Old Kindergarten program (born between July 1 2014 & June 30 2015) or Four Year Old Kindergarten program (born between July 1 2013 & June 30 2014) for the 2018 school year. Interested families are asked to call in to the School Office for an enrolment pack or phone the School to have one mailed out.



Sports Days Years 3-6

Students in Years 3, 4, 5 & 6 will have a Netball Sports Clinic on Thursdays for the next 4 weeks 11, 18, 25 May & 1 June). They are asked to wear their sports uniform on this day instead of the usual Wednesday.


Feedback Opportunity

Don’t forget to provide feedback on anything you would like to comment on so that we can keep doing what works well and improve in any area that needs some attention. Feedback forms are printed in each newsletter and can be ‘posted’ in the letterbox on the administration building off the undercover area. Thanks!
