Last Friday night 17 of our students received the Sacrament of Confirmation at
Holy Trinity and Corpus Christie church. It was a beautiful celebration made
even more special as the liturgy was led and blest by the Most Reverend Archbishop
of Brisbane Mark Coleridge. We congratulate and continue to pray for
these children as they grow in their faith and be active witnesses to God's message
of love and service.
PARK'N STRIDE MORNING AND WALK SAFELY TO SCHOOL INITIATIVE
On Wednesday 29th May 2013 the School will launch a Park n Stride morning.
There will be three starting points and parents are encouraged to park at
these venues and the children will then walk to school under the supervision
of teachers and parents. Parents are more than welcome to walk with
the group from the start or join in along the track. Please remain with your children until a teacher arrives at the starting location.
Every student has received a pamphlet showing a detailed map of the area with the starting locations
Two parks are pictured on your map as a boy walking and the third is marked by a star.
1.Banyo Memorial Park St Vincent's Rd
2. Kruger Park Redhill Rd
3. Corner of St Achs St and St Vincent Rd
Each group will leave these areas at 8am. Please gather at 7:50am for an enjoyable morning of Park n Stride. We are combining
this with the Walk Safely to school Campaign which is a national Initiative. Each walker will get a sticker and two
stamps in their Active School Travel passport.

our Active School Travel there are significant physical, mental and social health benefits which can be achieved through regular
CROSS COUNTRY / ATHLETICS

Thanks to our P&F for supporting the purchase of new team singlets for
our cross country and athletics teams. Fifty singlets are currently on order

2014. These new items of school sporting uniform (for our representative
teams) will raise the profile of our athletes and swimmers.
ST PIUS EARTH HOUR - 7TH JUNE 12NOON TO 1PM
Year two are saving the planet by saving electricity. We have been learning about Earth Hour and are going to hold a St Pius
Earth Hour across the school on 7 June 2013 between the hours of 12pm and 1pm.
Year 2 are asking students and staff to think about how they use power and then to consider ways to save power.
Some of the ways are turn off computers and fans, open windows, turn of the projector and turn off lights. This is what we
will be doing this for one hour to see if we can make a difference in our school.
Year two students will be coming around to each class to hand out posters and do short surveys to spread the message of
We are also challenging the parents take this short survey at home to see if you can make a difference.
