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

In this email



Lord, lead me to look for the positive in all people and in all situations. May I help bring light to those in darkness, and encouragement to those who feel unhappy. May I show as much care for others as I would like them to show for me. Amen.

St Vincent De Paul

St Anne’s School has a long and proud history of supporting the St Vincent de Paul Society Winter Appeal.

Once again St Vinnies are asking for our support. To combat the difficulties of the winter season, a request has been made for non-perishable food items, warm clothing and toiletries. Boxes will be set up outside the classrooms. The final day for donations is Friday 18 June. Thank you for your support.

Religious Education

This Sunday is World Refugee Day. This day is dedicated to raising awareness of the situation of refugees throughout the world. Marked on 20 June annually, it is held in order to draw the public's attention to the millions of refugees and internally displaced persons worldwide who have been forced to flee their homes due to war, conflict and persecution.

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.
