Principal’s Report

Well we certainly are approaching the end of the year rapidly! So much has been happening at Joey’s in the past couple of weeks, such as the conclusion of our Early Birds Program, Year 6 fundraising events and our school fete. Our future Kinders have enjoyed immensely, their time getting to know their buddies and more importantly our school. Thank you to the current Year 5’s, Mrs Long and Mrs Downie for making them all feel valued and welcomed. I am sure they are all super excited about beginning school in 2019.

Next week our Year 6’s will attend their Graduation Mass and Dinner to celebrate their journey throughout primary school. This is always a bittersweet night but one that truly encompasses and highlights the achievements of our Year 6 leaders. They have certainly risen to the challenge this year and led our school in sporting and academic events, outreaching to others through fundraising and supporting their peers every day. I know that Mrs Cleaver and the staff are very proud of their growth throughout the year, as too, am I.

Last Sunday our P&F hosted the Joey’s Fete and what an amazing day it was. Under the guidance of Elise Prosser, our P&F committee and other volunteers, we saw our school grounds transform into a fun filled community event from the markets stall, car show, side show alley, café and BBQ, animal farm to talent shows, and much, much more. We were very privileged to have our fete opened this year by one of our long standing sponsors, Mr Ray Stack, from Stacks Law Firm. It was certainly extra special as Mr Stack is also an ex student and he was amazed by the community spirit that he witnessed on the day. But events like this wouldn’t happen without support from our community through donations or sponsorship; parents and staff, who helped set up or man various stalls; to our students who came and had lots of fun! Well done everyone for once again making our school shine! I can’t give an exact amount of funds raised as of yet but I know the P&F will be keen to share as soon as possible, as these funds will go toward securing further resources to support your child/ren.

Please ensure that you put on your calendars the 10th December to celebrate our end of year with our Advent Liturgy, Awards Ceremony and community BBQ. This will begin at 5.30pm See you there.

Have a great weekend

God Bless
