St Anne's news: Thursday 3 June 2021

Welcome to the St Anne's newsletter. Here's everything that's happening around our community this week.

In this email



Lord, most of us will not become well-known or be written about because of great achievements, but we will be known and loved for our attitude and the smaller ordinary things that we do that make our part of the world a better place.

Inspire us, Lord, each day, to find joy in giving as well as in receiving, and lead us to act justly, love tenderly, and walk humbly with you, our God. Amen.

Greg's Message

Dear Parents and Friends of St Anne’s

Congratulations to the staff and students on a very successful return to remote learning. The staff are to be commended on their thorough planning of online learning; this has ensured that our children continue their learning. I’d also like to point out that online learning/teaching isn’t happening at all primary schools. Finally, I’d like to acknowledge our parents and thank them for their support.

Working Bee
Our second working bee for the year scheduled for this Sunday June 6 has been postponed. I’ll inform you of the new date in due course.

Parent/Teacher/Student Conferences
These meetings will occur on Thursday 24 June for the following classes:

  • F/1, 2/3 and 4/5. Students from these classes will be dismissed at 1pm on this day. Tara Smith (one of our teachers 5/6SB) will be on leave on June 24.
  • Consequently, 5/6SB conferences will be held on Thursday 29 July.

Open days/nights
We have planned two remaining  open days. These will be held on

  • Wednesdays  June 9, (9:30-11:30am) and
  • June 23 (1:30-2:30pm.) Please promote these sessions to potential families.

On the 17th June all students and their parents will participate in the interactive and immersive Discovery Dome as part of their science inquiry learning.

Each class (child and parent) will have a 1 hour session in the dome lead by a presenter from the Science Discovery Dome covering the topic they are studying in class.

  • Session times : F/1 - 4.30-5.30pm
  •                           2/3 - 5.30-6.30pm

The students will also have their Inquiry work on display on this evening for parents to have the opportunity to see what they have been learning. 

We would like to thank the Parents and Friends Association for covering the cost of this incursion.

More information will follow in the coming weeks.

St Anne's Primary School 90th Anniversary Cookbook

St Anne's Primary School 90th Anniversary Cookbook

2021 marks the 90th Anniversary of St Anne's Primary School which was opened in February 1931 by the Josephite Sisters.

We will be hosting a series of events in the last week of Term 3 to recognise this significant milestone and as part of this celebration would like to put together a cookbook of family favourite recipes, with contributions from the St Anne's Community, to celebrate 90 years of St Anne's.

We are looking for parent volunteers to form a cookbook committee alongside some of our staff members, so if you love cooking, desktop publishing, being creative, or would just like to be involved, please let Dee McDonnell or Lisa Hodgkinson know.
