From the Principal's Desk

Dear Parents and Caregivers

Welcome to Week 10 of Term 3!  We are so close to the end of the term which finishes on Thursday 24 September for the students and Friday 25 for the staff.  This year is definitely flying!

Excitement is building ahead of our Faction Athletics Carnival on Wednesday 23 September.  Most pre-carnival events (throws, jumps, team games, long distance) are now complete and attention is turning to Wednesday's events.  A huge thank you to Mr Dols for all the behind the scenes work he has been involved in to make this carnival as successful as possible, with the current restrictions in place.  He has been keeping the community informed about how the day will be organised and I ask you to respect our request that all family members keep strictly behind the bunting.  There will be two mobile toilets stationed on the oval,  provided for all community members attending the carnival with hand washing facilities. There will also be hand sanitiser available near the Sausage Sizzle cooking area.

Hopefully all those attending will be enticed by the mouthwatering aroma of cooking onions and gourmet sausages, available with contact-less payment on the day. We are hoping to have the barbecue running early so we have food available close to 9.00am as possible, for a tasty brunch.  All funds raised from the sausage sizzle will be going to the P&F.

FOOTSTEPS SHOWCASE We have been extremely fortunate that Footsteps Dance Company were able to still provide the dance lessons for our students this year,  at all times adhering strictly to COVID-19 restrictions. The PP - Year 5 Showcase will go ahead as planned but just in a slightly different format.  As we must abide by the COVID safety measures class teachers will be recording the students dance routines and uploading them to  individual class Seesaw pages for family members to enjoy and watch over and over again!  I thank you for your support and understanding as we are trying our very best to keep community events alive, just in a different format, whilst ensuring the safety of our students and staff.

PRE KINDY SURVEY I would like to ask you, as our current parent body, to complete the 3 minute survey attached to the Fee Subsidised Pre-Kindy Survey flyer.  To get your thoughts and feedback,  even if the survey will not impact on your family, it will assist our decision making and give us the information to support our application to the Education and Care Regulatory Unit (ECRU).      Fee Subsidised Pre-Kindy Survey

ONLINE LEARNING JOURNEY Thank you to our students and teachers for all the additional work that has been necessary to be able to hold our Learning Journey this year,  regardless of the health and safety restrictions in place.  Thank you to the parents who have emailed the school for your beautiful words of gratitude and support as you are aware of how challenging and time consuming an event like this has been.

CLASS REQUESTS If parents have a reasonable and valid  request for a class placement, which could benefit their child's learning, please have this in via email, attention The Principal,  to by the end of Week 1 Term 4, Friday 16 October. The enormous amount of factors that have to be considered by teachers when assigning students to a class is sometimes not fully understood.  Teachers spend a lot of time as there needs to be a semi-equal distribution of students by gender, achievement levels and behavioural concerns and balancing all three of these factors, simultaneously, is no small feat.  Therefore, any requests that come in after this date will not be considered.

Wishing you God's blessings.

Athletics Carnival

Liwara Athletics Carnival 

Liwara Athletics Carnival

Weather permitting this year’s Athletics Carnival will go ahead on the scheduled date of Wednesday 23rd September in a Covid-modified format.

Parents are invited to attend but will have restricted access to the oval area where the students will be. Parents will not be allowed onto the track or playground area at any stage of the day. The carpark side of the oval will be available for set-up and viewing events and, to make viewing easier, the main straight of the track will be located on the same side as the parent area. As parents/grandparents will not have access to the school facilities, portaloos will be provided. A coffee van will also be on site for this event.

Parents are asked to comply with current physical distancing expectations at all times.

Although some inconvenience may be experienced in this case, we wish to stress that these changes have been made to our Carnival on the basis of ensuring continued student safety and public social distancing expectations.

Our Classroom News

News from Year 1

Working in groups can be so much fun!! We have our friends with us to help if we get stuck or to share our amazing ideas with. In Reading Groups we work on our Reading Eggs, work on sentence writing and practice our phonics on Seesaw. Mrs Shilkin and Mrs Carberry work with us to help improve our reading strategies and comprehension.  

In our Math Groups we use lots of materials to help us learn adding, subtracting and lots of other concepts. We love playing Math games to practice our skills in counting, money, telling the time and many other things.

Who knew learning could be so much fun!

Fun in the Library

The children always enjoy 'acting out' stories and the story 'My Friend Fred' by Frances Watts was a huge hit.  So much so that a degree of 'poetic license' was used with the introduction of another character named Frederica.........

The children thoroughly enjoyed acting out the many 'doggie' antics as described in the book.  Here are two Year 3 students howling at the moon.

CBCA BOOK WEEK 2020 - October 17-23

This year we will be holding our Book Week parade on Thursday October 22nd.  Children are encouraged to come to school on that day dressed as their favourite book character. Staff are busy planning their special book character outfits and the children may even see a Britney & Whitney on the day.

More parade details will be circulated in Term 4.


Sustainability Wrap 

What a wonderful term of sustainability at Liwara. Our students have been actively involved in good works. These include recycling, harvesting vegetables, feeding our worm farm and collecting liquid worm tea for the vegetable gardens, sowing and planting new crops, weeding and lawnmowing with our push lawnmower, just to name a few. Already we have planted corn and heirloom cherry tomato seedlings and our worm tea, as well as the warmer weather, is helping them to grow even more vigorously. We look forward to cultivating our gardens beds more during Term Four and sharing the fruits of our labour with our school canteen. We also look forward to putting compost around our garden beds to slow evaporation.

Have you and your family ever thought about composting? Here’s a great link that shows you how.

Handy hints for Sustainability

This week’s handy hint for our Liwara parents is to “Make sure landfill is the last resort”. As recently advertised on the WasteWise Facebook page, this motto encourages us all to be better stewards of the earth, thinking globally and acting locally. Parents, during the coming school holiday period, you and your children can help our school by continuing to actively recycle, making landfill the last resort! We encourage you and your children to collect Type 1 (PET) and Type 2 (HDPE) cleaned plastic bottles and aluminium cans for our Greenbatch collection, to collect any spent pens and markers for recycling by our school at Officeworks, to drop your clean soft plastics into the redcycle bin at Coles or Woolworths, as well as saving spent batteries such as those shown below that we recycle in the school office. Please send your recycling bundles back to school with your children in the first week of Term Four. Working hard together we can all “Make sure landfill is the last resort”.

Let’s all keep working hard together with recycling! Have another wonderful week Liwara!

24:7 Greenwood Youth Ministry - 6th September

Youth Group Goal - To explain what Mercy and Justice is and how it relates to our lives.

Goal Status  -

This was achieved as we had a talk from one of our leaders as well as a video which explained what the difference was and how we can use the two in our lives.  

Youth Group Attendance  - 13

Youth Group Talk / Focus  - Sin Part 3: Justice and Mercy-Nicki

  • In the Old Testament, there is a lot of Justice, meaning that when something bad happened people had to make up for it or suffered the consequences of it.
  • In the New Testament, we are now called to show Mercy, which is a step further than Justice and looks at showing kindness and compassion to everyone, even those who may not deserve it.
  • God shows us Mercy all the time, through the mass, sacraments and the biggest way of all was by Him giving His Son to die for our sins so that we can now be with Him in heaven. However, if we don’t accept His mercy during our times on earth, we will receive his justice at the end of our lives.

Next Youth Group Theme - Brotherhood and Sisterhood

Last Week’s Non-Youth Group Ministry Activities / Mass

On Monday the 7th of September, we had the privilege of running the Year 3 Reconciliation Retreat at Liwara Catholic Primary School. It was a great day and we can’t wait for the year 6 Confirmation Retreat in a few weeks’ time.

24:7 Greenwood Youth Ministry - 13th September


Youth Group Goal- To explain the importance of brotherhood and sisterhood in the lives of the youth.

Goal Status-

This was achieved as we had a talk from our youth minsters of their own experience and reasons why they find brotherhood and sisterhood important and how it has helped their lives.

Youth Group Attendance- 14

Youth Group Talk / Focus -

Brotherhood and Sisterhood-Anthony and Georgia

  1. Brotherhood and sisterhood are important in our lives as they are support structures for us to help us through our spiritual journey and can help guide us along in our lives.
  2. It is important to find brotherhood and sisterhood groups as they are safe havens for us to figure out problems in our lives and to be a place of safety from the turmoil of the world.
  3. They are normally kept separate but when a strong brotherhood and sisterhood come together, they are a force to be reckoned with.
