Message from the Principal – Issue 36

Dear Holy Spirit,
On the weekend the Year Six students are going to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation. I want them all to be strengthened by the Holy Spirit, to be more confident and choose the right path. I hope they feel excited to receive the Sacrament. When they have received the Sacrament of Confirmation, I want them to try their hardest to be good all the time and be kind to others. Oh Holy Spirit, teach the Year Six students the right path so that they may not be troubled. Thank you Holy Spirit. Praise be to you Holy Spirit.
Amen.

This Sunday, 29 November and the following Sunday, 6 December at 11.00am, we will come together to celebrate the Sacrament of Confirmation. I ask you to keep the Year Six students and their families in your prayers, during this special time in their faith journey.

In order for us to fully support the Year Six students, it is important to understand the significance of receiving the Sacrament. Confirmation is usually received as a teenager, several years after making first Communion. The Catholic Church considers it the second of the three Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism being the first and Communion the third).

Confirmation is regarded as the perfection of Baptism, because as the introduction to the Rite of Confirmation states, ‘by receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation, we are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit.’

Advent marks the commencement of the Church’s liturgical year.
In this time of preparation as we wish each other well and share cards and gifts with family and friends, it is good for us to remember, each day, just what we are preparing for – the greatest act of generosity by God to us is undoubtedly the gift of His son Jesus to the world.
He came to us as one of us, a human, humble and poor.
Yet, the divinity of Christ was made manifest to us in all he did.
Is our humanity ready to respond?
Are we prepared to follow in his path?

This Sunday is the first Sunday of Advent, the commencement of the Church’s liturgical year and a time of preparation and waiting. It is good for us to remember each day, as we wish each other well and share cards and gifts with family and friends, just what we are really preparing our hearts for and waiting for – the greatest act of generosity by God to us, the gift of His son, Jesus, to the world. He came to us as one of us, a human humble and poor. Yet, the divinity of Christ was made manifest to us in all He did. Are we prepared to follow in his path? As we celebrate Christmas this year, let us reflect on the most important reason for celebration, the coming of our Saviour, Jesus Christ!

Here are some dates regarding upcoming events:

Tuesday, 1 December is our MADe Showcase We are all looking forward to this very special celebration. This will take place from 8.40am in the undercover area with morning tea for our parents. Parents are invited to attend this showcase as long as you physical distance and use the hand sanitizer provided. We will need to take a register of who attend so please complete the sign in attendance when you arrive. The art will be displayed in the Art Centre with limited numbers of parents able to go through the rooms with entry and exit points clearly marked. Thank you in advance to Mrs Longbottom, Mrs Muir, Mrs Harvey and Mrs Simmonds for showcasing the work completed this year in Music, Art and Dance. Bravo ladies!

Move-Up Morning Monday, 7 December for Kindy-Year 5 will be an opportunity for the children to visit their new classroom, meet with their new teachers and any new classmates for 2021. The morning will involve some school work, art, or social mixing games and informal discussions about expectations for next year.

Wednesday, 9 December – At 9.30am we celebrate the 2020 Thanksgiving and Graduation Mass. This year we can only have parents of graduates along with siblings and grandparents. The Year 5 students will form part of the choir. This celebration is about giving thanks for the blessings of this school year, as well as congratulating the Year Six Graduating students. When we look back over the year, and as our Year Six students reflect on their years at St Luke’s, we realise that there is so much to be thankful for. Please help to make this a time when our Year Six students remember with pride, that they were part of a caring and supportive faith community who came together to honour and farewell them. Reports will be available from Wednesday 3:00pm via SEQTA Engage.

Thursday, 8 December – Year Six to attend Adventure World

Friday, 9 December – St Luke’s Fun Day. Pre Primary to Year 6 will be going to the movies! Teachers have sent information to parents about this and if there is any parent who does not allow their child to watch the PG Rated movie, please contact your child’s class teacher to discuss this?

Report Meetings

We have offered two separate time slots in the week 10 of term 4.  These sessions are:

  1. Tuesday 15th December 2pm – 3.15pm
  2. Wednesday 16th December 9am – 11am.

These time slots are for parents who wish to discuss any minor concern in their child’s report. It is NOT compulsory. Parents are reminded that any concerns would have already been explained to parents PRIOR to reports being sent out. If you do wish to speak with your child’s teacher, you will need to make an appointment during the time allocations only.

Teachers will not meet with parents who turn up during this time, nor will other times be made available. As you can understand, Week 10 has been organised for classroom teachers to attend handover meetings and PD’s that have been organised during the week.

 

Sports

On Friday, November 20th some of the St Luke’s children from Years 4, 5 and 6 participated in the first Northern Primary Schools Triathlon run by Mercy College.

All the students did an amazing job with some excelling in different legs and a few dominating all legs of their races.  After great results in the individual races, the children took part in team events where they worked very well together, some people even helping out in extra races. We had 5 podium finishes with Finn Barrett winning gold, what an effort by all the students!  Overall, St Luke’s finished 3rd for the day. 

Many thanks to the parents who made the extra effort to bring all the bikes down and all our supporters, both on the day and at the trial.

This Thursday the 26th,  the Year 5 and 6 students will be participating in the Interschool Summer Carnival playing cricket, beach volleyball or tennis. We wish them well at the sport they are doing.

I am in need of some people to help at the cricket, we have 3 teams and need a manager for each team. Any ex-students at High School who are not busy would be welcome.  Please let me know if you can help.

It is that time again.

2020 has been a year like no other.

We’ve all watched hundreds of thousands of Western Australians get pushed into poverty. We’ve read the

Christmas is coming and whereas you and I may be fortunate enough to be preparing humble celebrations; hundreds of thousands of people will be at struggling this Christmas.

With your  help, we can turn a year of hardship into a better experience for a Western Australian family in need; you can help make it a Christmas like no other by taking part in a food collection.

We look forward to your support with this wonderful initiative. 

Please send through items to add to the baskets that are in classes.

Pick up will be in Week 9 or Term 4.
