Compare yourself not to others, but only to the vision you hold within your heart. Dedicate your life to a cause greater than yourself and watch you get beyond yourself. The very thing that someone told you that you would never be able to do may just be the very thing you are destined to do. [Dr John DeMartini]
BE MORE – this year’s Project Compassion theme – is being adopted wonderfully in classrooms. Here are some images from Reception A, with what the children expressed alongside the images.
Annabelle "I am helping Poppy when she fell over. Someone bumped into her. I helped her stand up."
"I am praying to Jesus. We talk to Jesus."
Archer S "This is me playing with Zaia. We are playing dinosaurs. I am playing with her."
"This is Annabelle and me. Annabelle has a bleeding knee. I am helping her."
The children have been taught that to BE MORE is more important than to want more. Please talk about how each member of your family can BE MORE at home and in the community. Being more kind could involve family members giving up something so that they can donate money to Project Compassion.
We are once again inviting families to become involved in our school community Food Tree.The Food Tree has been established to assist and support families who may find themselves in need of meals due to illness in the family or other unforeseen circumstances. If you would like to become involved in the 2021 Food Tree group, please email Mike Proctor indicating your willingness to prepare meals for families in need within our school community. Your involvement is confidential and once you have indicated your interest in being involved you will be notified when food is needed. In anticipation of your support, thank you. In the past we have had several families experience significant difficulties in some way and it has been the support of the Group that has assisted in these times of struggle.
There is a whole school community Liturgy on Tuesday 30 March at 11.30am in SUMMAT. There will also be an Easter Season Liturgy, the following week, on Tuesday 6 April in SUMMAT. Parents, grandparents or other family relatives are most welcome

Being the Change - Student Literacy Progress
Last Monday evening parents had the opportunity to attend a ‘Learning Conversation’ on our new Literacy teaching direction at St Brigid’s. Kay Bosworth shared with parents the insights into the importance of explicit teaching of reading skills and the science of reading. This hour-long presentation was most insightful, and we present it here for parents who were unable to attend.
