Newsletter - 27th June 2019 

From the Principal

Dear Parents/Guardians,


 Lord, we believe you are in our world;

You seem to hide, but it is for us to find you.                       

So give us eyes that we may see your presence

In everything around us, and help others see.

Open our ears, to hear your voice gently calling.

Let us have a light heart and a spirit of laughter;

To celebrate life and to enjoy each moment you

Have given us.

May we be Good News to all.

Teach us to share your Gospel and to recognise it in others too.

Catholic Education Week:

Catholic Education Week (CEW)  commences on Sunday 14 August. Corpus Christi Catholic School will be taking 25 students from across grades to attend the CEW Mass at St Mary’s Cathedral on Thursday 18 August.

During the week, the Southern Recognition Awards will be presented at a ceremony to be held at Guilford Young College Glenorchy, commencing at 4:00pm.

Parent/Teacher Consultations:

The Parent/Teacher Consultations were well attended with many thanks to the teachers and parents who were available to attend. Grade 4SL Parent/Teacher will be on Tuesday 9 August 3:20pm-5:00pm.


Bravehearts, is an Educational Program empowering children to keep safe. They will be visiting Corpus Christi on Wednesday 10 August with Classes from Kindergarten to Grade 3 attending.

School Crossing and Crossing the Road:

Please do not drop students off in Alma Street near the crossing guard in the areas marked as NO STANDING as it is difficult to see other vehicles approaching when attempting to cross the road.

Please discuss with students road safety rules. Recently we have had some near misses with students crossing the road in Bignell/Ormond Street and not obeying road safety rules.

Badminton in PE:

Last week as a culminating lesson in racquet skills the Grade 3-6 children were all given the opportunity to play badminton. We were lucky enough to have development coaches from the Southern Tasmania Badminton Association help out. The children all had a great time and learned many new skills. There were many questions about how to get involved and as such the following link is provided.
