CHILD PROTECTION WEEK
Sunday marks the beginning of Child Protection Week (7 – 13 September). This week Child Protection Week Awards will be presented at Parliament House on Thursday. Brisbane Catholic Education has been nominated in two categories. Brisbane Catholic Education provides enormous support to school communities in relation to child protection issues for which staff and families are very grateful.

Child abuse and neglect is one of Australia’s most significant social problems. Last year more than 35,000 Australian children were proven to have been abused or neglected. Given we know that child abuse is under reported and difficult to prove, these statistics are alarming. Child protection is everyone’s business. All members of our community need to make child protection their business and play a part in ensuring children are nurtured and safe. Over a hundred events will be held around Queensland to promote this message during Child Protection Week.

WORLD TEACHERS DAY STUDENT CHALLENGE
Your children may be interested in the World Teacher’s Day student challenge – what a great way to show appreciation for the wonderful teachers our children have. The World Teachers' Day student challenge is open for any Queensland school student or group of students from Prep to Year 12 to create a digital product that expresses the theme: a teacher's commitment to their students' learning is inspirational. The challenge closes on Friday 10 October with finalists announced in late October. Further information is available on the World Teachers' Day website.

FROM THE APRE
I was thinking about Father’s day coming up on the weekend and looked in my bundle of reflective notes to find some inspiration for my newsletter this week.   I came across this quote about fatherhood and I thought I would share it with you.

Fatherhood is undergoing a renewal. Whereas once we presumed a lot of things about fatherhood and perhaps overlooked its need for closer attention, today there is a growing interest in the irreplaceable contribution men offer families in their role as a father.  This renewal is something in which we can all take part by reflecting on our own experience of fatherhood.  (The Story Source)

For us our reflections can be a mixed bag:  joyful, painful, positive and negative emotions, healing, forgiveness as well as celebration.  Whatever your thoughts are at this time of the year, we can all agree that the role is a significant one, which adds a different dimension to families.  Take the time to think about your role as dad, if you are a father, grandfather, or someone who cares for children in a fatherly way.  Never underestimate how important that role is.  For boys, this is where they learn what it means to be a man.  The examples fathers, grandfathers, and male carers give to their children is so important.  We need to encourage our dads to be the best they can be and support them in any way possible. 

Congratulations dads!  Keep up the good work!

This week our Year 1 Blue students will be helping us celebrate and give thanks for our dads at the Friday Prayer Assembly and the Year 5 and 4 students will be celebrating Eucharist with the parish on Wednesday at 9:30am.  Join us if you can.
