Leadership is a big focus during Term 4 as the Year 5 students prepare to become school leaders when they enter Year 6. Some are applying to be school and house captains, which requires enthusiasm and commitment. I am very proud of those who so far been working on a written application and speech to give to the entire school. It is great to see you challenge yourselves and do things that are out of your comfort zones.
We recently attended Camp Fairbairn which also had a leadership focus. The students participated in a range of activities with the goal of improving communication skills and developing teamwork and resilience.
LINKING ALMS FOR CHRISTMAS
Every year our school contributes to the “Linking Alms for Christmas” appeal. This appeal better enables members of our community who are experiencing hardship to enjoy the Christmas spirit with hampers and gifts for families and individuals.
We are asking families and community members for your assistance by making contributions for this appeal. These can be made through donations for “pantry” items for a food hamper, toiletries, food vouchers, clothes or small gift items for babies through to teenagers.
This appeal will run until the last day of the school year – Wednesday 5th December. Donations, contributions and/or gift items can be dropped into the donations tubs located near the Christmas tree in the front office at St Brigid’s school. We appreciate all your support for this important appeal.
