Pastoral Care Ministry
This term the Pastoral Care Ministry will be collecting non-perishable goods for the St Vincent de Paul Society ‘Christmas Appeal’. The Christmas Appeal aims to collect non-perishable goods to be given to families in our community who don’t have the opportunity to celebrate Christmas. This can be due to financial difficulties, illness, disability, homelessness or isolation. So St Vincent de Paul aims to, with our help, collect goods that can be given to these people with the aim of bringing joy to those less fortunate in our community. So we are asking that all families donate non-perishable goods including:
- TINNED FOOD (Tinned Fruit, Baked Beans, Tinned Vegetables, Tinned Tuna, Tinned Soup, Tinned Spaghetti etc).
- TREATS (Christmas Cake, Fruit Mince Pies, Biscuits, Candy Canes etc)
- BEVERAGES (Soft Drink, Juice, Long Life Milk, Coffee, Tea, Milo etc)
- CONDIMENTS (Jam, Vegemite, Tomato Sauce, etc)
- MEALS (Pasta Sauce,Pasta, Rice, Noodles, Cereals etc).
As a ministry the children have decided that:
- Pre-Kindy/Kindergarten/Pre-Primary students will be collecting treats and tinned foods.
- Year One & Year Two students will be collecting treats and beverages.
- Year Three & Four students will be collecting treats and condiments.
- Year Five & Year Six students will be collecting treats and meals.
The Ministry children will be discussing this with the children in the school next Monday morning during Student Ministry time.
It is imperative that all goods are in date and in good condition. Could all donations please be sent to your child’s classroom, where they will be collected by the Pastoral Care Ministry each week. St Vincent De Paul will be visiting to collect the donations on the Friday 16 November 2018.
Thank you in advance for your kindness and generosity.

Visiting the School – Sign in Procedures
An iPad is now available for entering the school during school hours. This replaces the sign in book. Please follow these procedures:
- Sign in and receive a Lanyard or Exit Card
- Enter the school
- Sign out and return the Lanyard
All visitors to the school must sign in i.e. Parents dropping things off, Parents picking up students, Volunteers helping Canteen or Class, Students arriving late, Maintenance workers etc.
Absence from School of a Student During School Term
There is an approval procedure that must be followed if you are taking your children out of school for several days.
- Letter or email must be sent to the Principal and Teacher advising the school of the circumstances of the absence.
- School then formally approves the absence with a letter sent to Parents.
It is important to note that the Education Act states that all children need to be at school at all times during the school year.
Prolonged absences should only be taken if it is essential for illness, pastoral and family reasons. In this instance it is a requirement that parents provide a valid explanation, in writing, for children’s non-attendance at school.
It is also important to note that prolonged absence from school will impact on children’s learning.
