Evacuation Drill - Today

Dear St Joseph's ELC Families,

Today we held our first evacuation drill for the year. The children were very sensible in lining up and walking with our teachers to our evacuation area near the church.

Please commend your child for how responsive they were today and how well they listened to their teachers, lined up and answered their name when we called the roll.

If you have any questions about our evacuation drill, please don't hesitate to reach out.

PJ Day Tomorrow

Dear parents and carers,

As all Houses reached their House Point benchmark for the term, the students are welcome to wear their pyjamas to school tomorrow - Wednesday 23 June.

Please ensure they also wear appropriate footwear. 

Students in Fatima House will also enjoy a pizza lunch tomorrow as they were the House that earned the most points this term.

This was communicated with the students at the end of last week and again this week, as well as via a Compass alert this afternoon.

Please be aware that as of the start of Term 3, all alerts from school will come via Compass, not via this SZapp platform.

More information to come in the Newsletter this week and communication early next term.
