Dear Parents and Caregivers,

As we get to the end of Week 7 and with students finishing the 2020 school year on Friday 11 December, we are well and truly nearing the end of another school year! It will continue to be a busy time, nonetheless. Please continue to check the calendar provided on the school website for dates of remaining events. Most importantly, our Annual School Community Meeting will be held on Monday 30 November at 6.30pm. I encourage you to come along and celebrate the amazing journey of Liwara throughout 2020.

Welcome back to all staff, students and families to Term 4. I hope all families had a relaxing holiday and enjoyed spending time together. We have a few new students joining our school this term and we welcome them to the Liwara Community. Term 4 is always a busy and fun filled term. Already the classrooms are busy with new units of work commencing and the students settling straight back into work. We have many exciting events this term commencing with our lovely Year 4 students and children from the Parish celebrating their First Holy Communion over the next two weekends. Next week we celebrate Book Week, it is always an opportune time to read with your child and model your own reading habits to your children.

Welcome to Week 5, Term 3!

On Saturday 15 August we celebrated the feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary.  The Assumption is celebrated because Mary was taken up into the glory of heaven not only her soul but also with her body.  So each year when we celebrate this feast day of Mary, we can ask our Blessed Mother Mary to guide, protect and care for us.

It has been a great week with a few school events being re-launched and implemented, which we are extremely grateful for.   We are coasting into Week Four soon and the term continues to ‘roll along’ smoothly and happily with the students and staff working diligently and contentedly.   Although school life has settled into a relatively steady routine, Phase 4 of COVID-19 restrictions still require us to keep certain parameters in place, until further notice.

A warm welcome to Term Three!  It was uplifting welcoming all the students back to school on Monday 20 July  as they meandered through the grounds , with lovely smiles on their faces.  I  hope the holidays gave you the opportunity to step back a little from the busy school days and enjoy many shared family opportunities either at home on somewhere around our beautiful State.
