R-6 | Pupil Free Day Monday 16 October
An important reminder that the R-6 students have a Pupil Free Day on Monday 16 October (Term 4, Week 1). OSHC will be available.
R-6 | 2024 Classes
We are about to begin the important task of putting together Reception – Year 6 classes for 2024. In doing so we consider several factors to ensure the best possible learning environment for your child. These include a balance of males and females and a full range of abilities and needs, including educational and behavioural. As part of this important process, each student nominates five students from their neighbourhood who they believe support them to be the best learners they can be. This information is considered when making class placements. Every child will have at least one nominated student in their 2024 class.
Should you have any specific educational or behavioural information that would assist in the process of creating classes, please email Sue Karidis by no later than Friday 27 October (R-5 families only). Please note that this is not an opportunity to request that your child be with specific students or teachers.
Classes will be carefully constructed after Friday 27 October, and therefore any relevant information you have to share must be emailed prior to this date for consideration. I will only contact you if I am unable to accommodate your request.
Students will learn of their teacher/s for 2024 on the Transition Day which will be held on Tuesday 5 December. On this day, students will spend the morning in their new classroom with their 2024 teacher/s and classmates.
We thank you for observing this advice and the timeframe set, and I am very much looking forward to setting up the best learning environments for the 2024 school year.
Years 4-6 | Radio Italiana 531 AM Segment
Nazareth is fortunate enough to have a permanent segment on Radio Italiana 531 AM. This is a weather segment – where students have the opportunity to read the weather in Italian.

Year 12 | Stage 2 Holiday Workshops
The Term 3 break is an important time for Year 12 students. In some cases, it will be necessary for students to be on-site to receive additional support.
Please click here to view the list of Holiday Workshops scheduled for the upcoming Term break. Please note not all classes and subjects will have a workshop scheduled and individual teachers determine whether a class requires this additional time. We are very appreciative of staff who support our students with this extra time across the holiday break. Students who are unable to attend a workshop are expected to contact their teacher to explain their absence. Students are also reminded that they must only be on campus when they have a workshop scheduled.
Please note these holiday workshops will be held at the St Gabriel Centre or Kidman Park Campus.
Students not attending school should use this time to finish major studies and assignments, complete note preparation for exams and revise. Students should organise a study timetable for the break so that they study for all subjects and make the most of this invaluable time. Valedictory speeches may also be written during the break – these are due by Tuesday 17 October.
