Turn Australia Green & Gold

We are inviting all students (and our staff) to dress in something green and/or gold tomorrow (Friday 30th July) - no donations, just fun and awareness of fitness, sport and success that comes through hard work, commitment and resilience.
We would love to encourage our students to support our Aussie sportspeople who have worked so hard and struggled under COVID conditions to make it to the Olympics in Tokyo in 2021. We all know the effort that goes into successful kids in sport and how important good role models are for them to live their dreams and build resilience. Imagine some of our own kids striving to represent Australia one day!
Students can come in their sport uniform with something small added such as a hair band or wrist bands, or go all out and wear your most outstanding green and gold clothes. Remember sun safe clothes and suitable shoes are essential.
We may even have a little healthy student / staff competition on the day.....
Aussie, Aussie, Aussie.....oi, oi, oi!!

World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly


Today, Sunday 25th July 2021, has been designated by Pope Francis, as the First World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly (Ord Time 17). It coincides with the Feast of Saints Joachim and Anne, grandparents of Jesus, on 26th July.

Occurring in the Year of Amoris Laetitia Family 2021-22 with the theme, ‘I am with you always’, the day draws attention to the vital role grandparents and the elderly play in our communities and in the mission of the Church.

Did you know?


Did you know that fruit can be ordered in a lunch order for Crunch’n’sip (our daily fruit break)? It can be ordered in over the counter lunch orders or in Flexischool online orders (this is our preferred method).

Please remember, if you do order fruit for Crunch'n'sip, to let your child know that it is part of their lunch order and that they will need to collect it from the Canteen.

Connect and Reflect Parent Gathering

You are invited!
These local gatherings are a replacement for our Parent Assembly Conference that is normally held at Opal Cove Coffs Harbour each year. Due to the current landscape, we are hosting 3 Parent Gatherings to accommodate each region in our diocese. We are hopeful that these events will continue. Numbers are limited by venue requirements, so it will be advantageous for you to register ASAP via the link in the flyer.
