Unfortunately, it is the time of the year when people are suffering from sickness. Thank you to those parents who have kept their children home from school when they are sick. May we remind everyone that it is important that if your child is feeling sick, that they remain home and you either contact the school of their absence via the school website, administration email or a phone call.

Bread Bag Recycling Promotion - NOW ENDED
Thank you to everyone for the support you have shown in bringing empty bread bags to school. The school has exhausted all the recycling boxes it was given which is wonderful news, as we will receive the maximum amount of sports equipment in exchange. As a result, the promotion has now ended.
Each year our parish hold a sacred Fire on the eve of St John the Baptist to dispose of spiritual goods that are damaged and need to be disposed of. As Catholics have done for centuries before us, we build a fire and spend time with our family as we remember this great saint who courageously preached the coming of the Messiah and ask him for his intercession. There is a special blessing for the vigil fire and afterwards we can enjoy toasted marshmallows and hot chocolate!
This year, we will be hosting the City of Armadale community trailer with outdoor family games, BBQ and TV. The whole parish and school community is invited to attend on Friday 23 June from 5pm to 7pm. Sausage sizzle: $2 Drinks: $1 & real coffee will be available for purchase.
The event is FREE but please book tickets via trybooking using the QR code or https://www.trybooking.com/CILFB for catering purposes. The fire will be lit behind the Church and the area will be restricted. All parking will be in the front carpark.
