Dear Parents/Guardians

A belated Happy Mother’s Day to all Mum’s, Grandmothers and Great Grandmothers, I hope you enjoyed a very restful Mother’s Day and were spoilt by your families. 

Loving God, you provide and care for all your children.

Grant that we may always love those who show us the love of a mother.

May god who is the source of life, give them joy, blessing and the gift of peace.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.   Amen.

Welcome to new staff:

We welcome Jodi Jones and Petrece Raspin to our staff. Jodi will be replacing Linda Callinan and Petrece will replace Louise Webster, whilst they are both taking some well earned Long Service Leave. 

Corpus Christi Catholic School Cross Country:

On Friday last week we held our MJR School Cross Country, for Grades 3-6 at the Rokeby Police Academy. The weather was kind to us and students, parents and staff had an enjoyable day supporting and cheering each other on in their races. Many thanks to all parents who assisted on the day and came to watch their children, and to Mr Brasnja for organising the carnival and to all staff who supervised and encouraged the children. A great day was had by all.

NAPLAN RESULTS – in Reading:

John Mula, the Director of Catholic Education in Tasmania sent a letter last month to congratulate Corpus Christi Catholic School on our results in Reading.

The letter stated, “I am pleased to advise that ACARA has identified Corpus Christi Catholic School as having demonstrated substantially above average gain in NAPLAN results in Reading. On behalf of Catholic Education Tasmania, I would like to extend my congratulations to you, your staff and your school community on this achievement. Gains of this magnitude are significant and worthy of highlighting and acknowledgement.”

Biggest Morning Tea

Over the past few years, staff at Corpus Christi have donated over $2,000 to the Cancer Council and this May we are doing it again.

Cancer has affected so many members of our school community and we believe it is a valuable cause to support. 

If anyone would like to also donate to the Cancer Council, there is a donation box on the counter of the school office. 

All contributions gratefully accepted and will be sent to the Cancer Council at the end of May. If you require a receipt for tax purposes, please let the office know. 

Thank you in advance for your support.
