One morning this week, one of our parents was hit by a reversing car in the front carpark. While there were no serious injuries, it is a reminder that we need to be extra vigilant around our parking areas. It could have been much worse if it was a child.
The wet weather makes an already hectic situation even more frantic. As always, I ask parents to be patient and if you are finding the mornings a rush, try to leave a little earlier. I know that is easier said than done.
We welcome back Mrs Boyton and the start of term two and Mrs Williams at the start of week two.
I hope anyone that can get away has a nice break and hope you stay COVID safe.
Next term our canteen will again commence operation, albeit on a small scale, with the aim to build to a five day a week service by term four. This will be dependent upon demand.
It will commence on Tuesday of week one and, for the first month, will operate on Tuesday and Wednesday only. For the remainder of the term, it will operate Monday to Wednesday.

There is a large collection of lost property that has been collected from outside. We have attempted to get any items with names back to their owners but, unfortunately, we still have some items that have not been picked up. We have moved all lost property to the uniform shop (located in the hall) and it will be available on a Friday morning for parents to come in to have a look and see if you can find any of your missing belongings.
Crazy Hair Day
Thank you to everyone for your gold coin donations today for our Crazy Hair Day fundraiser, we raised over $800 and all proceeds will be used for our sensory walk.
Thank you to all the students who participated in the high jump challenge. It was great to get so many photos. On the entry of Toby Silva he added the following:
My Grandma Margie's first cousin, Percy Hobson, won the gold medal in the Perth 1962 Commonwealth Games high jump with a leap of 2.11 metres. He was 20 years of age. The difference in height between me and Percy's winning jump is 0.81 metres. Go Percy!
Fittingly, Toby’s name was drawn out from all the entrants and he won last week’s prize.
Have a wonderful school holidays and I look forward to welcoming back all students on Tuesday 13th July.

Thank you to all those parents who attended one of the Commitment Masses for First Eucharist/ Reconciliation, last weekend. Apologies to all those families who unfortunately were turned away from the 5pm Mass on the Sunday as it was at capacity. Please ensure you have handed your pink enrolment form and baptismal certificate into the Parish.
Enrolment online has closed and all payment envelopes should have been given to your child's classroom teacher at Mother Teresa School.
13th Sunday in Ordinary Time
27 June 2021 - Year B
“Little girl, I say to you, arise.”
Something to Think About
How do you know if someone is alive? Can you feel your heart beating? Maybe a grown up can show you how to take your pulse.
Today’s gospel shows us that no problem is too big for Jesus.
A man named Jairus asked Jesus to heal his daughter who was dying. By the time Jesus arrived, the little girl had died. But Jesus raised her back to life.
Can you imagine how relieved Jairus must have felt to find Jesus and to hear Jesus agreeing to come and help his daughter? How do you think Jairus felt after the heard that his daughter had already died? Jairus still had faith and kept on believing that Jesus could do what seemed impossible.
