Dedicated doggy drops by

Last week we were very fortunate to have a visit from Nicky, the aunt of Macy and Gemma. She plays footy for the Bulldogs and her nieces were very excited to have her visit their classes. She also helped us with training at lunchtime for our girls footy team. They play against other schools on the 4th of May. Nicky gave us some signed posters and footy cards. Lots of the students were inspired by Nicky and really appreciated the effort she made to come to our school and spend time with us.

Book Of The Week

Hi everyone, I’m in charge of this week’s Book of the Week. The book I have chosen is ‘A Very Unusual Pursuit’ by Catherine Jinks.Image result for a very unusual pursuit

I love this book because it is a thriller book and it always keeps you on the edge of your seat. It is about two people named Mr. Bunce and Birdie Adams who are boglers. A bogler is a person who hunts bogles. A bogle is a monster that eats people. I would highly recommend this book to any thrill seekers that like to read horror books.

Remember to get an adult to help and that you are supervised by an adult



On Monday night the planning committee gathered at Down the Rabbit Hole to plan the Mother’s Day Breakfast. It promises to be a beautiful celebration of the wonderful ladies in our community.

We need as many dads as possible to help on the morning. So boys and girls, ask your dads whether they can help.  

If they can, ask them to reply by Friday 5 May, or to contact the office. 


on Monday we came together to remember all those who protected our freedom. A special thank you to our wonderful 5/6SC who planned and presented our reflection. Peace is something we should not take for granted, peace comes when we learn to respect others and share common values.

On Thursday we were represented with pride and a true understanding of ANZAC Day by 12 amazing Year Six leaders. I was very proud of them.

Community Service Alive and Well at St Charles Borromeo!

Congratulations to Alessia and Alexia for taking it upon themselves during the school holidays to doorknock around Alessia’s neighbourhood to raise money for Project Compassion. We are so proud of you for living out the school values of care, empathy and responsibility. The money raised has been added to our school collection and will be directly donated to Caritas Australia. Well done again ladies!

“It does not take much to help. We think as young children our future will be great but things may change. You never know if you may become poor. We loved learning about Project Compassion at St Charles Borromeo, because we see how lucky we are to have warm beds and nice houses! It is important to help people that are poor.” (Alexia and Alessia 3/4C)
