Please be aware that as the end of term is approaching, all unnamed lost property items at Student Services (Findon and Flinders Park) that are not claimed by Wednesday 6 July will be discarded or donated.
Please ensure your child checks lost property for items they may be missing such as water bottles, lunch boxes, containers, slides, hair accessories and uniforms.
A reminder to name all items of uniform and clothing; jumpers, jackets and sports uniforms, that way if placed in the lost property box we will do our best to return these to the owner.
Due to the 2022 Commonwealth Census data collection, if your child/children will be absent from school during the last two weeks of Term 2 (27 June 2022 to 8 July 2022) OR at the start of Term 3 (25 July 2022 to 5 August 2022), you will need to notify the Head of Campus before you start travelling.
Once notified, the Head of Campus will then provide you with the following documentation:
An Exemption from School Attendance form to be completed and returned to the College before your student/s absence,
A notice regarding the annual student Census data collection, and
A letter requesting confirmation that you’ve received the notice of collection, and agree for your child/children to be included in the 2022 Census data collection and the anticipated date of return to school.
Head of Campus contact details are:
Primary Campus : Natalie Cameron, 08 8406 5100 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Secondary Campus: Adam Cibich, 08 8406 5300 or email@example.com
If your child/children have become Australian citizens in the last 12 months, could you please forward a copy of their Citizenship certificate to Students Services at either Campus by Friday, 8 July 2022 for updating our records?
'Say a Little Prayer': Free to Every Family from ECC - Year 6
The World Meeting of Families is an international gathering initiated by Pope John Paul II in 1994. The 10th World Meeting of Families was held in Rome from 22-26 June 2022. The theme for this gathering was Family Love: Vocation and Way to Holiness. The hope in this theme is to highlight family love as a vocation and as a way of holiness, and to understand and share the profound meaning of family relationships in daily life. This is one of the ways we celebrate Being Church Together!
In celebration of this global event, the prayer booklet Say a Little Prayer prepared by the Family Faith Formation Team has been distributed to Nazareth ECC-Year 6 families as a gift on this special weekend. Additionally, the family resource is available for you for further information. On behalf of the Catholic Formation for Families Team these little booklets will be distributed to classes with one copy per family.
We are currently seeking feedback from families on the R-4 Swimming Program.
As you would be aware, the R-4 Swimming program occurs annually, for a week in May at the Thebarton Aquatics Centre.
We are assessing the ongoing viability of the program, with specific consideration to:
- the impact on teaching and learning,
- the significant cost vs the student benefit
- recognising the logistics for families
- recognising the logistical impacts for the college
It is important to note also, that unfortunately, the Year 5 Aquatics program is no longer available to students of this age.
In the interest of continual improvement, we are reflecting on current practice and aim to ensure that we continue to maximise the student experience across all year levels.
Some alternatives to an R-4 swimming program and the Year 5 Aquatics program could be to have individual year level experiences from R-6, in addition to improved whole school learning environments, such as nature play spaces, and for upper primary years, the introduction of a sleep over experience.
We ask that you provide your feedback by completing this survey by Friday 8 July.
We look forward to hearing your thoughts!
Our Annual Sports Day is set to be another wonderful highlight event of the school calendar. As you may be aware SA Athletics Stadium is currently undergoing a major redevelopment and upgrade of its facilities. Due to a slight delay in this process, we were required to change the date for our Sports Day, which is now set to be on Monday 5 December (Week 8, Term 4). We look forward this event and appreciate your understanding.
