Welcome back to Term 4! I hope everyone had time to reconnect with friends and family over the holidays and create lasting memories. This term will fly by as we only have 8 and a half weeks. As of today, only 35 days! It was lovely to join the Year 5/6 students on their long-awaited leadership camp last week. Being postponed from the beginning of the year due to COVID, we were able to lock in a venue late last term as the students ventured off to the coast and spent a couple of days in Yeppoon and Rockhampton taking on some educational challenges and spending some valuable time bonding together. We took in the sites of Great Keppel, immersed ourselves in the Dreamtime culture and even did a spot of caving. Thanks to our Year 5/6 students, who once again were wonderful ambassadors for OLSH.
I look forward to another busy and productive term as we wind down to the end of the year. There will be many activities and school related events taking place this term and I urge you to keep updated with the school calendar in order to keep on top of everything. OLSH School Calendar
END OF YEAR CELEBRATIONS
As the year draws to an end, we look towards celebrating the year that was and the achievements of our students. This year has seen many changes in routine, and this will extend to end of year celebrations. Due to renovations of the Big Shed and COVID restrictions, we have made the decision to not run with Speech Night in 2020. This year we will celebrate the achievements of our students and bid farewell to our departing students and staff in an end of year celebration on the last day of school. More information and specifics of the day will be communicated in the coming weeks. We thank you for your understanding in these unusual times and hope that our new celebration will be a wonderful way to finish off the year.
WORLD MISSION MONTH - CRAZY SOCK DAY!
Help us to make a difference this October! Catholic Mission is the International mission agency of the Catholic Church in Australia and they help raise money for people all around the world. This year, students across Australia are encouraged to not only learn about Cambodia and the work of the Church there, but to do something extraordinary for the Catholic Mission through fundraising, advocacy and prayers.
On Thursday 29th October, we will be participating in Socktober – an initiative to raise funds for Catholic Mission. Students can wear crazy socks and bring along a gold coin donation.
