Confirmation Reflection Day

Hi everyone,
We will be leaving early on Wednesday morning and will leave school at 8.50 am. This means you will need to be at school by 8.30am. I will be ready and you can enter the classroom.
Just a reminder to bring with you a small back pack with your lunch and drink bottle on Wednesday. The school will provide a morning tea snack and drink.
You will need a pen to write with. Do not bring an oversized pencil case as it will be unnecessary.
If you have any other questions please let me know.

Melbourne Victory Visit

On Tuesday 21st March, the Year 5 and 6 students were privileged to take part in a soccer (football - as we were politely corrected) clinic by players from Melbourne Victory. Organised by Greg Woolford, our family partnerships officer in conjunction with sponsors Barry Plant Real Estate, the clinic was a success despite some drizzle. That wasn't enough to dampen our spirits and the students had an opportunity to get player autographs and learn a few skills along the way.

Thank you Greg for organising this for our students.

Snags and Snorkels

Congratulations to all the Year 5 and 6 students for their work in supporting 'Snags and Snorkels' event at the Jawbone Marine Sanctuary in Williamstown.  There was a great turn out with families from not only St Theresa's but Our Lady's and Mother of God.

There were students past and present enjoying the sunshine and exploring the rock pools with spider crabs abundant and schools of small fish swimming in the shallows.

The event was successful in achieving it's purpose to raise awareness of the marine sanctuary and the importance of looking after our bays.

Thanks to Greg for working closely with our students and helping to promote our idea as well.

St Patrick's Feast Day Mass

It was a pleasure to have our School captains, SRC and Sports Captains represent our school at the St Patrick's Feast Day Mass.
Bill and Charlotte carried the school banner during the opening mass procession among so many schools, both primary and secondary, from all over Melbourne. It was a beautiful mass with an amazing choir and pipe organ.

After mass, we all had lunch at the Treasury Gardens and enjoyed the music showcased by student bangs and groups from various schools.

Congratulations to all of our students who represented St Theresa's with respect and dignity.

Well done!
