O most holy Heart of Jesus, fountain of every blessing, I adore You, I love You, and with a lively sorrow for my sins, I offer You this poor heart of mine. Make me humble, patient, pure and wholly obedient to Your will.
Grant, good Jesus, that I may live in You and for You. Protect me in the midst of danger; comfort me in my afflictions; give me health of body, assistance in my temporal needs, Your blessings on all that I do, and the grace of a holy death. Amen
(The Most Sacred Heart of Jesus – June 7)

QuickCliq

We had a great response to our first online order day using the new QuickCliq online ordering system on Wednesday.

Thank you to the families who volunteered to be part of the trial, your support and feedback have been much appreciated. We have decided to open up the system to all families beginning next week, Monday 10 June. Mrs Finlay has sent out a Seesaw message with instructions on how to set up your account and register your child/ren.

With the support of Mrs Richter (canteen manageress), all canteen orders will go cashless by the end of Term 3.

We look forward to your continued support in this new venture for our school.

Library Refurbishment

On Tuesday 18 June, the school library will be getting new shelving installed.  This will allow for greater flexibility and space within the library as well as improving the aesthetics within the room.  Following the instalment, Mrs Wells and Mrs Kelly may require parent assistance to help with restocking the new shelves.  Please notify the front office or speak to either staff member if you are available to assist.

Dance Fit Incursion - Kindy

This week, the Kindy children were lucky to have Dance Fit Dance Academy visit and teach us a part of their program ‘READY SET DANCE’. This program has been designed for both boys and girls, focusing on teaching the fundamentals of dance whilst developing confidence, coordination and creativity in a professional and safe environment. The kids had a ball and were so excited to participate in such a fun class. If you think this is an extra curricular activity your child may be interested in, please contact Dance Fit Dance Academy via their email reception.dancefitdanceacademy@gmail.com

Digital Conference

In May, fifteen students from Year 3 and 4 were chosen to participate in the 2024 Digital Conference held at St Jerome’s Primary School. The day brought together students from St Jerome’s, Sacred Heart, Xavier, Mater Christi and St. Munchin’s Catholic Primary School. Throughout the day, our students completed a series of iPad and robotics tasks designed by each school, requiring them to think critically, collaboratively and innovatively. The day was based around the book “The All New Must Have Orange 430” by local author Michael Speechly and was a huge success. Our students had a fantastic day and we can’t wait to continue this learning at Xavier in our Technologies classes and coding club.
