Newsletter - 27th June 2019 

From the Principal

Dear Parents/Guardians

                                     TAKE TIME

God our Father and Creator

You teach us to take time to be and to become

To make space for rest and relaxation and not to be always “getting things done!”

You teach us to honour the Sabbath as a day of worship and rest,

A day for celebrating your presence with joy

And doing the things we like best.

Sometimes, we forget how important it is to make space for the Spirit within,

To make time for enjoying the gift of life so help us today to begin!

Help us to slow down and take time to be, to renew and replenish our Spirit

That we may be able to serve you better and all to whom we are committed.


Next week is the final week of term three. This term has been very busy, with a variety of sporting programs, celebrating our 80th Anniversary and Father Peter’s 50th Anniversary as a priest, Bravehearts and Family Life, just to name a few events. Thank you to all staff, parents and students for your hard work and support during the term.

Mrs Tamika Lowe will be leaving us at the end of term and we wish her and her husband Jamie, all the very best for the birth of their baby.

Phillippa Pacey and Mary Turnock  will be taking some long service leave after the school holidays and Mrs Brown and Mrs Paoli will be replacing Miss Pacey. Lisa Cooper will be on leave from the last week of term three and will return the second week of term four.  Madeline Noye will be replacing Lisa Cooper in Kinder C.

We wish all families the very best for a restful and safe holiday and look forward to catching up at the commencement of term 4 on Monday 10 October.

Day after Show Day:

A reminder that Friday 21 October, the day following Show Day, is not a student free day, all students are expected to attend school on the day.

Notification of leaving Corpus Christi:

If you are able to assist on the morning to help cook and serve the BBQ please email the P&F p&f.ccs@catholic.tas.edu.au   You need to have a Working with Vulnerable People (WWVP) Card.


The P&F are holding a Cinema Night to see Bridget Jones's Baby on Tuesday 20 September at Village Cinema Rosny, commencing at 6:30pm.  The tickets are $20.00 each (includes choc top, popcorn and drink).    Please book your tickets via the Qkr App.


To celebrate Corpus Christi’s 80th Anniversary, each child in the school has drawn a face for the school’s celebratory apron.

The aprons cost $20 each and are a full bib apron made from 100% cotton drill. They are fully washable.

The apron would make a great memento of your child’s year at Corpus Christi.

A sample of the apron is on display in the office foyer.

Order forms are available for download from the school website 'In the School Bag'


The chocolate drive is coming to an end, could you please finalise your payment.


The Fathers Day Stall was a huge success.   Thank you to Ria Mansfield for co-ordinating the stall and to Sandra Hallsworth, Lynnette Hurst, Nick Brown, Jeannie Diamantis, Sandra Heaton and Meg Kitchen for helping on the day.
