Dear Parents and Carers,


We are finishing the term on a high with so many things to be grateful for. Our students are buzzing with the excitement that has come from opportunities to showcase their skills in sports, CAPA, co-curricular clubs and learning this term. Students, we are proud of you!



Last weekend’s Showcase highlighted the many talents of our students. From individual performances to group performances, I was in awe of the incredible talent that we have at Calvary. 


If your child is interested in learning an instrument or taking part in a band or ensemble, there are options available. Just visit the website to sign up for Term 4 or for next year.

Stage 2 Expo

We had an amazing Stage 2 Art and Poetry Expo on Wednesday. Congratulations Stage 2 for exhibiting an excellent Expo, the room was buzzing with your talents! Students and teachers are to be commended on the great effort and hard work that made your talent's shine.


To quote one of our parents ' It is indeed admirable that you have taken the initiative to encourage the children to pursue their dreams and inspire them to create beautiful art.'


I was blown away by the connections you were able to make through your artworks and your poetry.

Swimming Lessons

At the end of this Term, our Prep and Stage 1 students participated in a week of intensive swimming at Sue Howletts Swim School.

Our Prep and Stage 1 Swimming Carnival will be held next term. We are confident that the students will enjoy more confidence in the water because of these lessons. Early next term we will enjoy a junior carnival with many fun, modified activities.



Subway/Sushi Lunch

Order that have been placed will be delivered tomorrow at first break. Unfortunately, no more orders can be placed at this time.



As we change pace for the next few weeks and enjoy school holidays in its various forms. I pray that all our families are able to enjoy time doing something that brings them rest and peace. Please be reminded that the first Monday of Term 4 is a public holiday. We look forward to seeing everyone again on Tuesday 3 Ocotober.
