St Patrick’s School is true to its mission of being a welcoming faith community, centred on the person of Jesus Christ. Visitors to the school often comment on the warmth of the school community, demonstrated by the staff, students and families of the school. As an integral part of the Catholic Church, our mission is also to help develop the full potential of each person, drawing on the riches of the past and present and fostering hope in the future. Even though St Patrick’s is only a very small school with a varying enrolment of between 60 and 80 students, children are encouraged to participate.

OUR PREP STUDENTS' THOUGHTS ABOUT COMING TO SCHOOL
With St Patrick’s Fete looming quickly on the calendar, it is timely to remind families of some upcoming preparations. We thank you for your support of our parish fete.
Wednesday Working Bee – 5pm this Wednesday, we need as many ‘hammer wielding’ parents as possible to assist with setting up of stalls and marquees. This is heavy work and many hands will get the work done quickly. We hope to see as many of our parents here on Wednesday as possible. Thank you.
Glo Product Stall Convenor – Thanks to some of our parents, the Glo products have been purchased and delivered. We now need just a couple of parents to volunteer to run this very popular stall. Please contact Tyronne if you can be of assistance.
School Choir Performance – Both Junior and Senior Choirs will be performing two songs each on Friday evening at the Fete. Students are required to be at the stage area by 5:45pm. The performance is at 6pm and should be finished by 6:15pm.
Bottle Stall: The ‘Bottle Stall’ continues to be a success and a big hit with the children. Bottles full of goodies are donated to the bottle stall and children purchase tickets to randomly win them. Each year we have a bottle competition between classes to see who can bring in the most bottles. The final winner is decided as per the average for each class (ie. the number of bottles collected divided by the number of students in each class). Last year Dalrymple were the winners. There will be an additional prize awarded this year to the class with the greatest variety of bottles. Ideas include; pencils, rubbers, hairbands, toys, lollies, pen etc. No soft drinks thank you. Please start collecting and bringing them in to display on the port racks in front of each classroom.
