The Play and Learn program for 2016 will not begin until Term 2.  Information about the starting date and which day of the week it will be held, shall be provided in a newsletter closer to that date.

The Corpus Christi Play and Learn program is mainly targeting 2,3 and 4 year olds who have not yet begun Kindergarten, but if you have younger children or babies of course they are welcome. This is an opportunity for young children to begin to develop their confidence and curiosity as learners prior to commencing Kindergarten in a safe and secure environment with their parents/carers beside them. Play and Learn is held in Ballygriffin House, and run by Mrs Lisa Cooper.


Junkyard Play Area

We are opening our "Junkyard" in Area 1 Shortly and we are looking for donated materials for the children to build, stack, roll and create with.  Things like wood blocks, hand sized stones and rocks, piping, old plastic or wooden crates, wooden poles etc are what we need.  Any nail-free and non-sharp items can be dropped in the bottom carpark near the music room/workshop after school only please (so we can quickly check them over) and then we will be using them as soon as possible.

School Services

After a substantial review of our uniform shop and canteen processes, we are pleased to advise that we have introduced a new smartphone App for purchasing uniform and canteen items. This App is available now.

The App is called Qkr! (pronounced Quicker) by Mastercard.

View the video explaining how Qkr! works and how to install it here: http://vimeo.com/100952137

For further information on how to install Qkr! click here


Canteen ordering via Qkr has been a huge success with many families embracing the new system. The feedback has been terrific with most comments being how quick and easy it is to use.

Can you please ensure that you have updated your childrens name to this years class and remind your children if you have placed a Qkr order on the Friday morning.

Canteen Orders – Paper bags are not required when you order using the Qkr App.

The Canteen will be open only to Kinders to Grade 2 on Friday 26 February due to Swimming Carnival.

The Canteen will be closed on Friday 11 March due to the Walkathon.
