Our school is a place of faith and learning
Dear Parents and Families,
We begin by wishing our Mothers a very happy Mother’s Day for Sunday.
Unfortunately, we did not have our Mother’s Day Breakfast this morning, primarily due to the density quotient for enclosed spaces and the availability of volunteers to assist with running a number of sessions during the morning. However, in recognition of our mums, your eldest child will bring home a small gift from the P&F and school in the form of a voucher that may be used during May or June. Please look out for it this Sunday.
HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY
Just a reminder, that NAPLAN testing will take place next week for students in Year 3&5. Students have sat Practice Tests and are familiar with the expectations for Testing Days.
INSIGHT SRC IMPROVEMENT SURVEYS
Surveys have gone home to sixty families today. They may be completed online or returned to school by Friday, May 14th 2021. Students and staff have completed the survey and families are invited to respond to the various questions about the school. This information is collated by a third party to provide an independent report, detailing strengths and areas for improvement.
We encourage you to complete the survey to assist us with future planning.
We pray for our students preparing to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation during the weekend of May 22nd and May 23rd. The next workshop for parents and children will take place on Tuesday May 11th.
Just a reminder, that we are taking enrolments for 2022 Foundation classes.
Again, we remind sibling families to complete enrolment forms and to book an enrolment interview. This allows us to determine the number of places available for new families.
Enjoy your weekend,
Once again wishing our mother’s a lovely day on Sunday.
Anita and staff

Yesterday we had a strong team of 43 runners compete at the SSV District Cross Country held at the College Ovals. Our students competed exceptionally well in wet conditions and finished second overall. Congratulations to Maddi and Taylah Mizzi who won their age groups and to Jack Armstrong, Josh Duffield and Arabella Fowler who placed 2nd and 3rd. Thank you to Lee Mizzi, Graham Manson and Kevin Greenwood who kindly gave up their time and stood in the rain to ensure we fulfilled our marshalling duties on the day. Your help was greatly appreciated.
The SSV Division Cross Country will be held at Yarram Golf course on Monday 24th May.
Students in Grade 5 and 6 will have the opportunity to represent St Thomas’ at the SSV Winter Sport competition on Tuesday 25th May in either Netball, AFL or Soccer. Each team will play a round robin competition and finals against teams from schools in our local district. Students have nominated the sport they will like to be considered for, and where required, will participate in try-outs over the coming weeks. In order to allow all of our students to participate, we will require parent assistance for each of the events. If you are interested in coaching, umpiring or scoring any of the above sports and have completed the school induction program, we would love to hear from you. Please contact the student office or email Mrs Duffield at email@example.com
