This Friday 9 December, all students from Years 1 to 5 will be engaging in a transitions session, where they will move up to their 2023 Year level classrooms in order to familiarise them all with the new settings for school next year. The session will take place from 9:45am until 10:45am, with some fun activities planned for the students.
Water Slide Day
On Monday all students in the winning Melros team enjoyed the great privilege of having a play on the giant water slides, as part of the Faction House competition throughout the year. It was a lot of fun and a great way to draw a close to the competition for the year. The school choir also had time on the slide to acknowledge all the extra work and effort they have committed over the year, which we are grateful for. Thanks goes to Mr Hazebroek and Mr Salmeri for creating the fantastic slide to play on.
School reports will made available to parents from Friday, 9 December 2022, at 4:00pm via SEQTA. Parents wishing to discuss the outcome of the student’s report are asked to contact their child’s classroom teacher, who will be on the school site from Monday 12 December to Thursday 15 December, to make an appointment.
2023 Class List
2023 class lists will be posted on classroom doors for parents and students to view from 10:00am, next Monday 12 December, 2022. Entry gates into the school will remain open from Monday 12 December to Thursday 15 December, up to 3:00pm, for parents to access.
I thank the staff for their extreme due diligence and efforts spent in finalising the class lists; a complex process that has taken over a month to complete in an attempt to provide the most suitable learning environment for each student in the school.
Inter House Beach Carnival
Year 6 Graduation Celebrations
As this is the final newsletter for the year, on behalf of all the staff I would like to thank all families for the great support you have given to the staff, children and myself throughout the year and wish everyone a very happy, blessed and Holy Christmas.
I would also like to wish those families who are leaving the school in 2022, every success for the future. I hope you hold and treasure your time spent at St Damien’s School.
We look forward to seeing those students returning to St Damien’s CPS next year, for what will be another exciting, fun and successful 2023.
