Term 2, Week 9 Bulletin


Dear Parents & Guardians

This week we held our Three-Way conversations. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those parents and guardians who made the effort to book a time to meet with the classroom teacher. I know that there were a lot of productive discussions. This is really important because, as a school, we have worked hard to embed a culture of open, professional and respectful conversations with our parents and guardians and actively involve them in the learning journeys of their children.

On a different matter, so keep everyone in the loop, we have received notification from our governing authority, Melbourne Archdiocese Catholic Schools, that our Stage Three construction will be going ahead. The due date for the start of this has yet to be confirmed but we are hopeful that this will start before the end of the year to finish by the end of 2024. The Stage 3 will consist of a new administration building with six classrooms upstairs and will be located opposite the current administration area. We are extremely grateful to the Commonwealth Government for providing a percentage of the funding for this building.

We are also hopeful that our fantastic (and very expensive) new basketball courts will be completed in time for the beginning of next term. I know the children are very excited and it will be great to have another option for children’s play as well as for our sports program.

I hope you have a wonderful break and I look forward to seeing you all next term.



Just a reminder that if there are any parents or guardians who are able to assist with the covering of books, please let us know. We are trying to organise a time to get this done (which might be at the beginning of next term) when we have enough parents and guardians to assist, when our new reading resources have arrived and when we have enough contact to cover these books. I will keep you posted.



As usual, tomorrow school will finish early at 1.30pm. As a special event, this day will be a pyjama day for a gold coin donation. Our new St Lawrence of Brindisi School Community Team is working on some projects to raise money to purchase activities and games for our playground. The donations raised from our pyjama day will directly contribute to the purchase of these resources.



A reminder that if you are interested in joining this committee, please make contact with me. We celebrate the fact that we have so many engaged parents who want to support their school as we grow and develop and we love that we have such an active and engaged School Advisory Council – they are amazing!


God bless,

Bill Hill.
