Dear Parents and Carers,


It has been another full week at the College. Yesterday, we enjoyed the Prep and Stage 1 Athletics Carnival. The students enjoyed many modified athletic events in the beautiful sunshine. Thank you to all the parents who came along and cheered their children on. The atmosphere was such fun.



Whether you made it an Ekka show day or a rest day, I hope you’ve enjoyed the public holiday this week. If you happen to be at the Ekka over the coming days, be sure to visit Calvary’s Sheep Show Team. Each year staff, students, and a selection of Calvary’s finest farm animals camp at the Agricultural Pavilion and participate in the Grand Parade and Young Judges competitions. Congratulations to the team on the many ribbons and places you’ve received throughout the week!



Thanks to Mr Ocana who has taken our Futsal teams out on Tuesday and today. We look forward to sharing the results with you in the communications next week.
