cath ed weekWelcome to the Saint Peter’s Catholic Primary School website.  The site is updated weekly with current news items and reflections.  The drop down menus at the top of this page contain important detail outlining information on enrolment, curriculum, homework, uniforms and other  important aspects of school life. The “Big Picture” articles are commentary on issues currently affecting the education system or future direction of our school.

We hope you enjoy what this site has to offer. Please don’t hesitate to contact the school with any suggestions or feedback.

The first round of Prep placements for 2015 will be sent home at the end of this week. If you receive an offer of placement in Prep for 2015 for your child, please ensure that you respond by completing the Confirmation of Enrolment form and returning it to the office as soon as possible.

Catholic Education Week will be celebrated across Queensland from 27 July - 2 August this year. This annual
event is held to promote the special ethos of Catholic schools and to highlight the great things that take place in Catholic schools every day. The theme for this year's celebrations is: Come, live life in all its fullness. This inspirational call is based on the Gospel of John (10:10), challenging those who answer it to "live fully".

Our school is planning a number of activities during the week and we hope you are able to join in the celebrations with us. Remember to keep Friday night 1 August free for our annual CEW concert and visual arts display. Click here for the concert program. Individual house groups will let you know what's needed and times of arrival etc.

On Sunday 27 July, forty three school community members attended the opening Mass celebrated by Archbishop Mark Coleridge at St Stephen's Cathedral in the city. Some of our Students sang in the choir but mostly we just enjoyed the feeling of being part of a wonderful organisation. It was a very uplifting experience and the music and choir brought goose bumps to the congregation. Archbishop Mark Coleridge reminded us that knowledge isn't wisdom and that the role of Catholic schools is to impart wisdom routed deeply in the gospel values. Thanks to our board chairman Reuben Pather who drove the St Columban's bus. Come, Live Life in all its Fullness! The theme of this year's celebrations will be in the forefront of our minds and actions this week as we celebrate Catholic Education Week.

Year levels can take on the challenge to bring along items which families in need would appreciate this winter. Here is a suggestion:

Prep - Warm articles of clothing such as beanies, gloves, socks, scarves, jumpers - these can be clean second hand clothing or new if parents wish to purchase them.
Year One - Blankets, warm wraps, knee rugs - These can be second hand or new.
Year Two - Packet biscuits - savoury or sweet.
Year Three - Cereals
Year Four - Pasta or Rice
Year Five - Long Life Drinks - Milk, juices
Year Six - Toiletries - soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes (NEW), deodorant, shampoo, conditioner
Year Seven - Tinned Food

We will have the collection day Tuesday 29 July when St Vinnie's will be available to collect so all donations can come in and go out on the same day. I know it's not environmentally friendly, but we'll use shopping bags instead of boxes as they are too heavy for kids to carry. We will also have a representative from St Vincent de Paul at our assembly on Friday 1 August.

Interschool Sport commenced last week for those students selected in netball, rugby league, soccer and touch football teams. Results are included in this week's newsletter.

This week students will play Banksia Beach State School. Matches will start at 12:45 (Junior) and 1:35 (Senior). Parents are reminded that there is to be no parking within the St Columban's site and they should park outside the school grounds. Parents who wish to take students directly from St Columban's must visit Miss Black and sign an early departure slip and have their child deliver the slip directly to their respective coach.

Best of luck to all St Peter's teams this week and the 48 members of the district athletics team who will complete next week August 5 and 6.

Children's Book Week is on 16 -22 August and the Moreton Bay Regional Libraries are conducting a series of activities during the day and late afternoon. Most activities require a booking so please visit the website www.moretonbay.qld.gov.au/libraries to see what is available. Activities include: Writing, Story times, I Love Reading Show and craft tables.

St Peter's is excited to announce the launch of a new web portal for our parent community. Access will be restricted to parents of students at our school and a logon will be required. Notification of these details was sent home by email on Friday 20 June.

The Parent Portal will enable easier access to information about happenings in the school, forms that need to be returned, names and contact details for staff, policy information and much more. We will be making increasing use of the Parent Portal to provide a range of information to parents in the future. Watch this space! If you have changed your email address recently please notify the office as soon as possible.

The P&F meetings give us all great feedback about school events and activities and help to plan for new events that build community. Thank you for your continued support. P&F meetings are the first Tuesday of each month at 6:30pm in the Staffroom.
