Today all children will be bringing home their report. If it does not arrive please contact your child’s teacher.
Parents are reminded that the first day of term three (Monday 12th July) is a pupil free day. Kidz Biz will be offering vacation care on that day should you need it. There will be no staff on site on that day.
Last Friday it was wonderful to see so many schools participating in the Big Sing at MTS. Congratulations to Mrs Curbishley for her organisation of the day and to our wonderful choir for their efforts. The highlight was a performance by the combined choir at the end of the day. I could see the parents present were very impressed and proud of their child/children.
I look forward to watching the performances by year one next Tuesday and year two next Thursday. A reminder these performances are open to parents as they will be year level events. Parents will be asked to sign in via the Check In Canberra App prior to the event. Signage/QR Codes will be available at the hall or front office. Seating arrangements will comply with current social distancing requirements.
Last week I received three outstanding entries where students had taken on the sprint challenge and worked out their average speed and compared it to the time set by both Ms Ceccato and the equally famous, Erriyon Knighton. The three students were Piyushi Bandarra, Xavier O’Brien and Isabelle O’Brien. Congratulations to all three.
This week we will look at the high jump world records.
Your task is to mark either record on a wall, so you get an understanding of how high they jumped. You then must measure your own height and calculate how much taller than your height the record is. A photo would be worth sending through to Mr Hughes via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
WHOLE SCHOOL FOCUS
The Whole school focus theme for this year is:
‘We Are Bee-Attitude Keepers”
Our value for the next two weeks is: Co-operation
At Mother Teresa School cooperation means:
- everyone helping to get something done
- working together toward a common goal
- working together with patience and affection.
Thank you 1 Amber & 1 Topaz along with their teachers, Miss Cartwright& Mrs Travers for a delightful Focus Assembly on Co-operation. The students dramatised the story of The Enormous Turnip and how they all had to work together to pull it up. They sang a terrific song about co-operation.
Reconciliation & First Eucharist
Thank you to all those parents who attended the Parent Information Session for First Eucharist/ Reconciliation, on Tuesday. As part of your child’s commitment they will bring their enrolment form to one of the masses this weekend. Please ensure to staple a copy of your child’s baptism certificate to the enrolment form. Please bring your prayer card to mass this weekend as well. There will a special blessing for the children and they will then give their prayer card to one of the parishioner's to pray for them during the preparation of the Sacraments. The payment envelop needs to be given to your child's classroom teacher at Mother Teresa School.
Enrolments will only be accepted through the parish at Mass this weekend.
Don’t forget to register online as well! Thank you
12th Sunday in Ordinary Time

“Who can this be? Even the wind
and the sea obey him.”
Something to Think About
Can you remember the last time there was a storm?
Imagine if you were on a boat in the middle of a lake in the middle of a storm.
Imagine what it would be like to feel the wind blowing and the waves crashing against the boat.
Today’s gospel is a great rescue story! The disciples were caught in a storm and Jesus saved them.
Jesus told the wind and the waves to be still and they obeyed immediately.
Jesus wondered why the disciples had been so afraid and he told them to have faith.
Think about how things changed in the story – from the noisy, frightening storm to calmness. What are the things in your life that calm you down and bring you peace?
Peace and best wishes

9. School-community partnerships
The school actively seeks ways to enhance student learning and wellbeing by partnering with parents and families, other education and training institutions, local businesses and community organisations. Parents and families are recognised as integral members of the school community and partners in their children’s education. Partnerships are strategically established to address identified student needs and operate by providing access to experiences, support and intellectual and/or physical resources not available within the school. All partners are committed to the common purposes and goals of partnership activities. Procedures are in place to ensure effective communications and to monitor and evaluate the intended impacts of the school’s partnerships.
