Christmas Appeal Shopping

On Wednesday, St Charles SRCs, from Foundation to Year 6, travelled to The Pines shopping centre to purchase Christmas gifts for needy families. This was made possible through student fundraising held throughout the year. Special thanks must go to SRC parents who supported us in our efforts by supplying food to our Movie Snack Bar and accompanying shoppers. Thanks also to the parent community who supported the SRC in their fundraising endeavours. Kmart were also generous in granting us a 10% discount. Christmas morning will now be a lot merrier for 22 children and their parents!

SRC Meeting

Today the SRC had a meeting and discussed, two very important items. 

  1. Our Doncare Drive- this will start next week and the winning grade will receive a BBQ lunch. 
  2. How we can use extreme weather days better. In your class please let your rep know, what you would like to do on really hot/ rainy days. 

🗣️ Speech Competition

Last night Alexia and Cecilia represented our school at the annual Rotary Speech competition. Both girls were amazing and we are proud of their efforts. 

Cecilia was judged to win on the night and Alexia was judged in second place. I would like to thank all the teachers and students who were part of this event. 

Catholic Education Week Mass

Catholic Education Week is an opportunity for all Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Melbourne to celebrate their Catholic identity and the pivotal role they play within their local community. We are blessed to belong to such a strong faith community. Now is the time to ask ourselves ‘what would God want us to do?’ 

     

Preparing for Lent

Lent is a special time when we stop and think about how we can play our part in God’s hope for a world that is fair, just and peaceful. Through prayer, fasting and almsgiving we take the focus from ourselves and instead focus on our relationship with God.
