FROM THE PRINCIPAL
Dear Parents and Caregivers,
Welcome back to all our families for the start of Term 4.
The students settled in very well on their first day and have been enjoying the beautiful Spring weather. We welcome our new Liwara families. We had six new students commencing this term in years 1 - 4. It is wonderful to see our Liwara students welcoming our new students and showing them around.
Our Principal Mrs Millar is on Long Service Leave for the first three weeks of Term 4, returning on Monday 31st October. We wish her a very safe holiday. Miss Angela Leddin will be the Short Term Principal during this time.
This Friday 14th October, CEWA is holding their annual Catholic Education Staff Breakfast. At this breakfast, Mrs Millar will be recognised for her 30 years of service to Catholic Education. In her absence, Mr Dols and Mrs McGavigan will accept this on Mrs Millar’s behalf.
Congratulations on an amazing dedication to Catholic Education!
The P&F and Fair Committee are very busy organising our annual Liwara Fair. We look forward to this great community event. There are many ways that our families can help out. Please keep an eye out for more information from our dedicated P&F.
To assist with our 2023 enrolments, can you please notify the school immediately or at latest by the end of this term, if your child has been accepted into another school. Liwara Catholic Primary School fee processes and procedures requires parents & caregivers to give the school a term’s notice if your child is not returning to Liwara in 2023. You can read more about our Fees, Processes and Procedures HERE or visit our website for more information. Please email email@example.com
ENROLMENTS ARE OPEN FOR CHILDREN STARTING SCHOOL IN KINDY 2023/2024 AND PRE KINDY 2023

TOUGH STUFF RESILIENCE PROGRAM
Throughout Term 3, the Year 5 students participated in an 8 week resilience-building program called Tough Stuff. The program combines physical and mental health to develop resilience, confidence, a sense of achievement and a toolkit of skills to support children into their future. The program has been a huge success as the children have learnt that they are made of TOUGH STUFF and can face challenges with a positive mindset.
Throughout the term they prepared for a 4 km run. The children completed the run in the last week of term, displaying positive attitudes, big smiles and words of encouragement for their peers.
The students made the following comments when asked what they would ‘take away’ from the program
- I can make a difference
- I shouldn’t care what anyone thinks
- have a positive mindset
- step out of your comfort zone
- the 4 C’s – confidence, challenge, commitment, control
- no matter how hard a challenge gets, do not let a small set back stop you
- being tough does not mean being the fastest or the strongest
- I am awesome
- Be more confident, because when you are confident you can do anything
- I learnt about my personality and how to attend to the needs of others

SCHOOL BAGS FOR JESUS
The Year 6 Social Justice Ministry were busy last term packing a huge supply of donations into ‘schoolbags’ for the children in the Philippines. Due to the very generous donations of the Liwara school community, the children packed 50 schoolbags.
On Friday, we handed these over to Jane Borg, who will ensure these bags make their way to the children in the Philippines. She was delighted with our donation and wished we were able to see the faces of the children who receive them.
