Dear Parents and Carers,

Term 3 has had so many highlights. The students have shone in sporting arenas and athletics, co-curricular clubs and competitions, performing arts and in their learning.  As well as this, we have seen and felt the support of the community that surrounds them, at our community events, Happy Hens and Chapel services. Thank you!


Showcase last weekend was an incredible display of individual instrumental performances, as well as ensembles, orchestral and dance performances. I love this event because the hard work of practising is not always realised until the first note is played on stage for an audience.

The CAPA program has a lot to offer. 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.

Term 4 Tuckshop

We are looking for parent volunteers for our Term 4 Tuckshop roster. Please consider offering some time helping Sheryl prepare food and serve the students. We need helpers on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays for Term 4. Please use the link below to put your name down for a day and time that suits you. Whether you can help out weekly, only once or a few times in the term – it all helps!

Prep & Stage 1 Swimming Lessons

Our Prep and Stage 1 Swimming Carnival will be held next term and in the lead up to this, we want our little ones to feel safe and develop some confidence in the water.

Next term all students in Prep and Stage 1 will take part in their swimming lesson program. Swimming caps and excursion bags are available from the office. The swimming lessons schedule has been sent to families to refer to and can also been seen in our Sports Section below.  Information about the Carnival, later in Term 4, will be distributed next term.

Compassion Australia

Our Missions Club are also supporting Compassion Australia's - Step Into My Shoes Campaign.  Students and/or families are encouraged to take part in this fundraising initiative over the school holidays.  Please see information below.

As we head towards holidays, I pray all our Calvary families enjoy a well-earned rest. Have a safe and fun time away, if you have something planned, and don’t forget that our first Monday of Term 4 is a Public Holiday. We will see everyone again on Tuesday 3 October.
