Our Community - Annual Events

SCHOOL PHOTOGRAPHS
Photographs are taken each year, usually in third term. Children are photographed as a group, individually and in family groups if requested. All details are sent home prior to the day and parents decide what they wish to order.

SACRED HEART FEAST DAY
The feast of the Sacred Heart falls in June and our school has a day of celebration. All children attend Mass and participate in fun activities for the rest of the day.

PARISH SACRAMENTAL PROGRAM
Early in the year a general meeting for all parents who wish to have their son/daughter involved in a sacrament will be scheduled. This meeting will be advertised in the Sunday Parish Newsletter and the weekly school newsletter.

CATHOLIC EDUCATION WEEK
Promotion of our school in the local community usually occurs in May. During this week we are involved in a liturgy and activities with the other catholic schools in our area. Families are invited to take advantage of the variety of opportunities to join us in celebration during this week.

ALL SAINTS DAY
Each year, on or around All Saints Day, our school holds a special Memorial Service to remember and celebrate the lives of community members who have died. As a community we feel strongly that we need to support each other through times of hardship and tragedy. This annual service is one practical way of us doing just this.

MISSION FETE
Around All Saints Day the students of our school organise a Fete to raise money for those less fortunate than themselves. Children need to bring some pocket money to school on this day and they may be required to help out by contributing food and or goods to their class efforts towards this cause.

BOOK WEEK PARADE
Every year our school celebrates Children’s Book Week with a “Dress Up” parade and a variety of activites based around reading and the children’s books that have been shortlisted for awards.
