In previous years we have had a matinee performance but this year due to the late change of venue and the fact that it is fete week we unfortunately will not be able to stage one this year.

In 2019, our school is participating in Catholic Education Melbourne School Improvement Surveys (CEMSIS). CEMSIS is an annual process where schools listen to the thoughts and feelings students, families and staff have about how their school can improve. These surveys help inform the ongoing improvement of our school.
Catholic Education Melbourne provides access to 80 families to participate in the online survey. One of the main goals of the family survey is to identify the strengths and areas for improvement in our school. CEMSIS data benefits everyone within our school and provides valuable community insights on areas that each school can focus on. Our school believes it is important to encourage families to have a voice and contribute to shaping the ongoing improvement of the school.
This week 80 families will be invited by email to take part in the surveys. I urge all of these families to participate and provide us with your insights.
A letter will be emailed out to all families of children in Years 4, 5 6 explaining that their children will have an opportunity to particiapate tin the survey over the next three weeks.
Thanks to all the families (and Staff) who made our Book Week Parade such a success. It was a fabulous day that the children thoroughly enjoyed. Thanks to Despina and Danni Molino for their efforts in ensuring that we had a wonderful celebration for the week.
Here are some pictures of the parade!
Just to let people know Catherine is currently on sick leave and is not at school for the next two weeks. Catherine has had a significant back issue that has seen her hospitalised. I ask you to please keep her in your prayers.

Battle of the Saints 2019
On Saturday the 31st August, after months of training every Sunday afternoon, the Dads of St. Peter’s and St. Paul’s played their 4th annual Battle of the Saint’s football game. The game was played at Centenary Park in very windy conditions but that did not stop the demonstration of skills that even Bruce McAvaney would describe as “special”. The game was played in good spirits and both the players and the large crowd enjoyed the whole experience. It was awesome to see the families of St. Peter’s and St. Paul’s get together for such a wonderful community event.
When the final siren blew it was St. Peter’s who won the game with a score of 12.13. (85) to St. Paul’s 6.8. (44) This makes it three wins in a row for St. Peter’s after St. Paul’s won the first game.
This game doesn’t just happen and I would like to thank several people for their outstanding contributions to helping make the day run so smoothly. I would like to acknowledge the following people for their help and I apologise if I miss anyone. Sammy Robertson for coaching the team, Ben Logan our inspirational Captain and for providing the Physio and strapping. Paul Commerford working the white board, Matt Regos as Team Manager, Adam Murphy for helping with post match refreshments, Greg Ryan for running the boundary and Hayden Brown behind the goals. A big thanks to Vicki Durston, Lou and Steve James and all the wonderful volunteers at St. Peter’s Junior Football Club who went the extra mile to make the day amazing and Phil Odlum for designing the logo.
The dads football game is a fantastic community event and allows dads from the school to get to know each other and make great networks.
Well done to all the Dads who represented St. Paul’s. You made us all proud!
