Dear Parents and Caregivers

Music Performance Assembly
On Friday, 7 June our School Hall was alive with the sounds of melodies and rhythms as students from various year levels showcased their musical talents. This much-anticipated event brought together students and parents for a celebration of musical artistry and hard work. I extend our heartfelt congratulations to all the performers new and experienced and a special thank you to Mrs Rose who coordinates the Instrumental Music program and to Miss Natalie Mandry our Music teacher who ran the performance on the afternoon. The choir is growing from strength to strength and their performance was melodic and tuneful, with the students really captivating the audience. The Music Performance Assembly was not just an exhibition of talent but also a testament to the hard work and dedication of our students and music tutors.

Catholic Performing Arts Festival
Miss Mandry is so proud of the choir’s consistent attendance and focus during their weekly rehearsals. It is wonderful to hear that the choir has grown to 50 regular members who are all putting in 100% to listen carefully to instructions and one another, which enhances their individual performances. I look forward with great anticipation to attend their performances at the Catholic Performing Arts Festival next term.

First Communion
A First Communion celebration is a significant milestone in the life of a young Catholic, marking their first reception of the Eucharist. Congratulations to our students who have already received the Sacrament this year and to those who will be making their First Communion this coming weekend. It is a joyous occasion and I offer our heartfelt congratulations to all the communicants and their families.

New Reversable School Hats
As of the start of Term 3, the uniform shop will be stocked with the new reversable school hats. As the need arises to replace your child’s current hat the new model will be available. If you choose to keep the current hat as a spare and purchase a new reversible option you are more than welcome, but this is not something that must be done immediately. The current hat will be phased out over the next couple of years, and we hope that all students will have the new reversible style for the start of the 2026, if not earlier.

Reversible Hats

Mater Dei Band Showcase
Once again, we are delighted to have the entertaining Mater Dei Band visit out school, on Wednesday, 19 June at 11:00am, for an exclusive performance. This is a fantastic opportunity for our students, staff and community members to experience live music from talented artists right here at Liwara. We look forward to sharing this musical extravaganza!

Interschool Cross Country
We are thrilled to announce that our annual Interschool Cross Country event is just around the corner and will be held on Friday, 21 June at Mawson Park. This event is a fantastic opportunity for our students to showcase their athletic skills, foster school spirit, and build camaraderie with peers from other schools. This event promises to be a day filled with excitement, competition, and community spirit. We look forward to seeing you there and cheering on our young athletes as they strive for the finish line!

Yr 5 Performance Assembly
Our Year 5 students have been working diligently to prepare a special performance on Friday, 14 June at 2:30pm and they are eager to share it with you. Your presence at this event will mean a lot to the students so we are hoping you can join us to celebrate the wonderful achievements of our Year 5 cohort.

Certificate Assembly
On Friday, 21 June, we invite you to attend our Certificate Assembly where we will recognise and celebrate the hard work and accomplishments of students over the past term. Certificates will be awarded for academic excellence, outstanding effort, and various other achievements. We encourage you to attend and support your child as they receive their well-deserved recognition.

Dance Showcase
On Monday, 24 June at 9:00am we are thrilled to present our Dance Showcase, where students will perform the routines they have been diligently practicing. This showcase promises to be an entertaining and inspiring display of our students’ creativity and dedication. We look forward to seeing the culmination of their efforts on stage. Please join us for these memorable events as your presence and support mean a great deal to our students and staff.

End of Term dates
Please note that Term Two concludes for students on Wednesday, 26 June.  Thursday, 27 and Friday, 28 June are Pupil Free Days.

Holy Communion

Year 4 students have been preparing to receive their First Holy Communion. They participated in a retreat which was interactive and engaging and so much information about Jesus’ life was learnt.

This is what the children had to say:

‘I got to meet new people today.’

‘I enjoyed participating in the meal, eating bread and drinking juice’

‘I learnt that the Roman soldiers treated Jesus very badly’

‘I never knew what Jesus went through before he died.’

‘I learnt that Jesus survived some bad stuff for us.’

‘I learnt he gave his life for us’

‘That was a lot of fun’

Last week at 24:7 Greenwood we had an awesome night of games and fun as well as a super inspiring talk. We started our night with card games, board games and fellowship time before moving into our formal games before the talk for the night. We were super blessed to be joined by the amazing Paul Massad who shared with us all about Confession.

He shared with us about how the Sacrament of Reconciliation can be difficult but also why it is such a blessing for us and why it is so important for us to be able to grow closer to God.


Next week we will be wrapping out term theme, Defenders of the Faith, by having our Encounter night. We will also be having one of our volunteer leaders give his first youth group talk as he shares about his experience with the Sacraments. We will also be giving the young people the opportunity to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation during our reflection time on the night.
