Dear Parents and Carers

Edu Dance commenced yesterday and all the children seemed to be thoroughly enjoying themselves and very keen to be involved. I must admit it’s a trifle hard not to join in with them on my travels around the school. The music and moves invite engagement!

The eight week Edu Dance programme will culminate in a concert which will be held in Week 9 on Monday 16th. We will let you know the times ASAP but suspect it will be an after lunch event as we will need to hold two concerts, one for the Yrs PP-3 and one for the Years 4-6. Both concerts should take around 20 minutes each Tina (the dance teacher) informed me today.

This Friday we have a Student Assembly to present Class Student Merit Certificates and certificates of appreciation to all our Semester 1 Student Councillors. We will also announce the Term 3 Student Councillors and present them with their badges. The Year 6 Student Councillors met with me yesterday to set the Agenda and prepare for the meeting. Our first Term 3 meeting will be held on Friday after assembly.

Trashless Tuesday

Dear Parents and St John’s students

We are starting our Trashless Tuesday on the 6th of August and we will be continuing it for the remainder of the year. NO RUBBISH is to be disposed as we are trying to be a sustainable school and discard as little rubbish as possible. If children do accidentally bring rubbish could they please keep it in their lunchboxes to take home, as no bins will be provided.

Thank you in advance from the Year 6 Student Councillors.

Netball Results

Yr 2/3 St John’s Shooting Stars def St. Kieran’s      8-4
A great game for the girls after a 3 week break. Everyone played a great defensive game which opened up the opportunities to score. Proud of the full team commitment and sportsmanship the girls showed on court.
Deanmore 4K def St Johns Superstars      10-9
Another great effort from the Superstars. Amazing defensive skills were on display up and down the Court. The girls tried so hard and were just unlucky not to come away with the win.
Newborough def St Johns Sparks     12 – 7
What a game! The team is really starting to work together and we could not be happier, well done everyone. It was a pretty close game up until the last quarter when Newborough just pulled ahead. Good luck for next week!
