CURTIS PITTAWAY 3W
Curtis, I always say that a smile can brighten someone’s day and change their day for the better. You continually have that smile, day in and day out. Every morning I know that I am guaranteed a huge smile and a ‘good morning’ from you!
Curtis, thank you for always bringing your positive energy and enthusiasm to school. You exude all our TRUE values on a daily basis, and show the upmost respect, courtesy and care to everyone you meet. I know that I can always count on you to help a friend out, do your absolute best on a piece of work or just give 100% effort to an activity.
Never change that brilliant attitude of yours, Curtis! This positive and contagious personality that you have will continue to brighten up everyone’s day and continue to help you excel in all your future endeavours!
Enjoy being the Junior Person of the Week! You deserve it, superstar!

Nyla, you have been chosen as the Junior Person of the Week because you always have a smile on your face and a positive attitude, which makes you an inspiration to all those around you.
You are brave and resilient as you face each challenge with enthusiasm and a can-do attitude. You are an attentive and reflective student who is always the first to engage in meaningful discussions and you are not afraid to share your thoughts, ideas and feelings.

You constantly show the spirit of Jesus by being polite, well-mannered, courteous whilst always helping your peers and your teachers without seeking recognition.
Nyla, you are a beautiful soul with a heart of gold and we are so blessed to have you as part of the St Peter’s Community.
Congratulations on being named our Junior Person of the Week!
JAMELA PITTMAN-DRABAREK 6M
There is a quote by Helen Keller that states, “The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt by the heart.” Jamela, you live and breathe this quote in every thought, action and word you speak.
You go by your day encouraging others, supporting peers, and helping those around you thrive. You bring happiness to us all, and the kindness you have to offer is always acknowledged with a heartfelt sense of appreciation.
Jamela, you have a knack for seeing the positive aspects of the world and improving someone’s day with a few short sentences of encouragement or by bestowing a heartfelt smile upon those who need it.
Jamela, the spirit of Jesus shines bright in your heart, and you walk a path of peace, humility, love and happiness with quiet confidence. The Bible says, ‘you reap what you sow,’ and when you sow your friendship upon us, we all reap the benefits.
Jamela, as you journey through life, always remember to see the beauty in the world, and live to make this world a better place to live.
Congratulations on being named St Peter’s Senior Person of the Week!

The Nationally Consistent Collection of Data on School Students with Disability (NCCD) is a joint initiative of the Australian, state and territory governments and non-government education authorities. The NCCD collects data annually about students with disability and the level of educational adjustment provided for them.
The definition of disability draws on the broad definition of disability under the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 and the level of reasonable adjustments they are provided with to access and participate in education. All Australian primary, secondary and composite schools, are required by the Australian Education Regulation 2013 to participate in the collection.
Parents, Guardians and Carers, please click on the link below for the Fact Sheet.
At 11am on Wednesday 22nd May, we celebrated National Simultaneous Storytime (NSS).
NSS is an annual event held by the Australian Library Information Association where the same book is read in libraries, schools, childcare centres, bookshops and pre-schools all over Australia and New Zealand at the same time. This event aims to promote Australian Authors and Illustrators.
This year the book chosen was ‘Alpacas with Maracas’ and was written and illustrated by Matt Cosgrove.
There was a lot of maracas shaking as Mrs Hutcheson read the book to all our Year 2 students as well as the 3W class.
We then had a one of our talented Year 6 students, Grace Forrest, a budding author herself, read a story she had written entitled, “The Yellow Envelope.”
Everyone received a sticker and a bookmark to remember the occasion.
ST PETER’S ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL FOOD FETE
Combined with the Grandparents 10am Mass on Sunday 30 June.
This is our Parish community’s major fundraising/community gathering where as a Parish we can get to know each other a little better, and where we can enjoy cooking and eating foods prepared by you, our community.
There are volunteer slips at the back of the Church for those who wish to cook a cultural dish of their own. These can be sampled on the day or taken away to enjoy later.
If you are providing food, please contact Hilda Tansley on 0433 059 088 with details.
There will also be a marquee on the lawn area adjacent to the hall with tables and chairs for your convenience.
Raffle tickets will be sold leading up to and on the day with winners being drawn on Sunday 30 June.
CONFIRMATION – Our candidates have been busy completing posters for display in the Church and practising for their Confirmation Masses on 8th and 9th June. We are very impressed with how mature and responsible they have been during our practices and how reverently they move around the Church and carry out their various roles. Please keep these wonderful young people in your prayers and don’t forget to read their posters – you may be surprised by what you learn, such as the patron saint of football!
PENANCE – Our students have been coming along to Mass over the last two weekends to make their commitment promises. We look forward to seeing their happy faces (and their families) at St Peter’s on the weekends.

Mother’s Day Stall
Over 2 days, 630 children excitedly visited the Mother’s Day Stall this year to carefully choose special gifts for their mums and other mother figures in their lives.
Some 212 pairs of earrings, 125 mugs, 310 bath bombs, 150 plants not to mention some very special onion glasses, giant pool inflatables, socks, pens, hats and beanies were scrutinised, surveyed and sifted through before finally being carefully crammed into carrier bags to surprise those wonderful people for Mother’s Day.
We would like to extend our sincere thanks to all those who volunteered their time to prepare, attend and pack up the stall. The stall was a success because of you and we hope that seeing the excitement and love in the children’s eyes made your experience worthwhile.
Over the last 3 years, we have collected $547.30 in donations which will be forwarded to the Nardine Wimmin’s Refuge who help women, children and even their pets escape domestic violence. (For more information, please visit https://www.nardine.org.au/)
On average, 1 woman is murdered every week and 8 woman are hospitalised every day due to domestic violence in Australia. We are proud to support such an important and relevant cause and thank those who contributed donations over the years.
