Newsletter - 27th June 2019 

Dear Parents/Guardians

Sunday 13th March was the Fifth Sunday of Lent – The Lord has done great things for us; we are filled with Joy.

 Catholic Primary Schools Swimming Carnival:

The Southern Catholic Primary Schools Swimming Carnival was held at the Hobart Aquatic Centre on Monday 7 March. The students from Grades 3-6 representing Corpus Christi were a credit to our school, their families and themselves as their behaviour was impeccable, their performances were fantastic and their support and encouragement of each other was outstanding.

Congratulations to all students who participated, to Mr Brasnja for organising the team, Mrs Heaton for being our official photographer, Mr Riza for his assistance and to all parents who were able to come along and support the children.

Woolworths Earn and Learn:

Many thanks to all parents and extended family members who participated in and contributed to Woolworths Earn and Learn.  We have purchased many wonderful games, gardening equipment, maths equipment, posters and other items. The equipment will be catalogued and stored in the Library and can be borrowed from there. Some of the items received are in the photos below.


Well done to all the students who participated in the K’s for Caritas Walk-a-thon last week, raising money for Caritas to help those less fortunate than ourselves. Thank you to the parents who were available to assist on the day, your help and support was much appreciated.  Money and sponsorship forms are to be returned to the School office by Tuesday 5 April.

T20 Cricket:

The T20 boys and girls cricket teams will travel to Lindisfarne tomorrow to play against other schools to determine who will participate in the finals later on in the year. We wish the participants all the very best for the day and have fun.

School Uniform:

A reminder to all Grades 3-6 students and parents that the red polar fleece top is not part of the formal school uniform. The polar fleece is appropriate to wear on a cold day when outside playing or to and from school during winter. It is not appropriate for students attending formal functions at other schools or venues.

Grade 5 Camp:

As this is the last newsletter, prior to Grade 5 going to the Far South Wilderness Camp, I take this opportunity to wish the Grade 5 students all the best and enjoy your camp. Have a lot of fun and look after the wonderful parents who are travelling with you and of course your great teachers, who do so much with you.
