Dear Parents and Caregivers

This Sunday we will be celebrating Father's Day and I’m sure that you will do your best to spoil all of our fathers and grandfathers. We are now over halfway through this term and we are very pleased with the efforts and achievements of our students.  We encourage them to continue working diligently and always strive to reach their full potential. We thank our parents and carers for their ongoing support and co-operation and for assisting the school in providing wonderful learning and personal growth opportunities for our students.

Our annual Athletics Carnival will be taking place on Wednesday 23 September. It will be run a little differently this year with an outline of the day having been posted on Seesaw for all families.  We hope to have a wonderful community day. Please ensure you read all the details carefully so we can work together to ensure the well-being and safety of all community members, by following the protocols outlined.  Mr Dols and Mr Ridout will be positioning the spectators' and students' areas differently this year to maximise the space for physical distancing, to make the day as safe as possible.  I suggest you bring a large picnic blanket and place your chairs on it to use as a guide. If each family group remains on their blanket, we should be able to maintain the two square metre rule between families.

I wish all fathers and grandfathers a wonderful day on Sunday. I hope you get to enjoy the day with your families.

Wishing you God's blessings.

Where Are They Now ?

Past Student Success Story - "Where Oh Where is" Rebecca Hamer?

Currently, our past student Rebecca is teaching at the Australian International School in Singapore where she has settled after spending time in Jakarta, Moscow and Bali.  All great background for her published book series "Where Oh Where is Monty Bear".

Much to the delight of some of our students Rebecca presented a 'virtual' Monty Bear session in 2019 and one of our students was lucky enough to take our Monty Bear with her when she visited Singapore. We are planning some future 'virtual' sessions for our Kindy & Pre Primary students before the end of this term.

Rebecca also has two YouTube channels - Bec The Boss & Monty Bear.

Rebecca attended Liwara from 1984  -1988 and is planning on returning to Australia soon to take up a position teaching Middle School Drama.


Athletics Carnival

Liwara Athletics Carnival 

This year’s Athletics Carnival will go ahead on the scheduled date of Wednesday 23rd September (weather permitting) in a Covid-modified format. Running races (including relays) will be held in two stages with Year 1 – 3s commencing at 9am and the Years 4 – 6 at 11.15am. The Team/Tabloid games (usually run before the recess break) will be run in Physical Education classes, like the Field events, in the weeks prior. Please note that it was always the intention that, in 2020, Pre-Primary would become part of the Early Childhood/Kindy Carnival in Term 4 and therefore, will not participate in this carnival.  

All Champion Boy/Girl and Faction Awards will remain the same and, relevant presentations and announcements will be made after each of the sections. 

 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 social distancing expectations at all times. 

The Staff will be running a pre-ordered sausage sizzle on behalf of the P&F for lunchtime. The order form will follow soon.  

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 6


The Year 6 ministry groups have been working hard to plan newexciting experiences to create the best Term 3 possible. We are also working hard to let you know about the school community by announcing at assemblies, advertising around the school, etc. Some of the events that have happened around the school are Smile Week, Talent Quest and many other events in the works! We even had Jessica Stojkovski take time out of her busy schedule to chat to us about her role as part of our Civics and Citizenship studies!  


The Year 6 Special Events Ministry is organising a Liwara Talent Show for students in Year 1 to 6. This will be held for the students in Week 10 on Monday afternoon, the 21st September. Auditions will be held for each year level on Friday 18th September.  One act from each year group will be chosen to perform in the Liwara Talent Show. The acts need to be 3 minutes or less. Students can audition in groups or individually and can dance, sing, tell jokes, play an instrument or any other creative ideas. Each act will be recorded and uploaded to the student’s Seesaw accountWe cannot wait to see the students shining and showing us their talents on the stage. Please encourage your child to create an act to perform and audition in front of their own year level. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us. 


Footsteps Dance

Dancing Lessons

Every Thursday during Term 3, the Ahern Centre has been filled with toe-tapping music and the prancing feet of many dancing queens and kings as Tayla, from Footsteps Dance Company, leads all our students from Pre-Primary to Year 5 through a range of dance routines. Each Year level will then focus on their favourite routine to perform at the Showcase at the end of the term.

We can't wait!


Library News

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. More parade details will be circulated in Term 4.

We like other schools and public libraries across Australia will spend the week celebrating books, and Australian authors and illustrators. Children will have opportunities to participate in activities relating to a theme to highlight the importance of reading.



Sustainability Wrap 

Wow! What a fantastic fortnight of sustainability here at Liwara CPS! We have harvested a few vegetables for our school canteen as you can see in the photos below and we have planted rocket and other seedlings in the lead up to spring. When grown slowly, the natural way, our vegetables have sprouted in irregular shapes, much like those you find in the ‘Odd Bunch’ vegetables at Woolworths. We pray for more rain like we had earlier this week (minus the stormy weather of course!) to grow bumper crops of vegetables to supplement our canteen’s supply in the months to come.

Recycling News

Did you know that in addition to Greenbatch and redcycle recycling, Liwara also now recycles spent pens and markers? We are very fortunate that Heidy Nemere, mother of Chalize (1R) and Emily (3G) has volunteered to take our school collection of spent markers and pens to Officeworks for recycling. Please collect your old, pens, textas and markers from home and at school for recycling. Ask your child to place them into our new camouflage coloured recycling bin outside the Visual Arts room, pictured below. Let’s all do our bit to stop adding needless rubbish to landfill!

Handy hints for Sustainability

This week’s handy hint for our Liwara parents is to share the following video with your family.


Stewardship Cartoon

The video comes from Caritas Australia and concerns stewardship which was outlined in Laudato Si’, an encyclical of Pope Francis back in 2015. As it is the poorest communities in our world that are most greatly affected by the changes to our planet, for example consumerism, Catholic organisations such as Caritas Australia are attentively addressing these environmental concerns by promoting actions that are caring for our planet and its resources. Stewardship or ‘respect for Creation’, which is real sustainability in action, is clearly shown in this video link above. By supporting Caritas Australia and other LifeLink organisations, and by actively recycling whenever you can, you too can help to care for our common home and live in stewardship with our planet. This is Pope Francis’ key sustainability message from Laudato Si’.

Stay calm and keep recycling Liwara! Have another wonderful week Liwara!

Thanks to the wonderful students that tend the school garden we received some lovely purple and orange carrots and some huge beetroot. These have been added into our salads and quiches.

The beetroots were really amazing, we made some chocolate and beetroot muffins and a yummy beetroot hummus which has been added to the options list on several items on the menu while our stock lasts.
We appreciate your hard work.

24:7 Greenwood Youth Ministry - 23rd August

Youth Group Goal - To explain what original sin is, how it affects us as humans and how baptism helps us get over original sin.

Goal Status  - This was achieved as we had a talk from one of our leaders who explained these points and it was well received by the youth.

Youth Group Attendance  - 21

Youth Group Talk / Focus  - Sin Part 1: Original Sin and baptism - Catherine Acres

  • Original sin was created after Adam and Eve disobeyed God in the garden of Eden.
  • Original sin broke our relationship with God, ourselves, each other, and creation.
  • Baptism helps restore us to our true human nature and corrects the wrongs that have been created by original sin, through Jesus.

Next Youth Group Theme - Sin Part 2: How Jesus saved us from our sin

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

Both our student and volunteer leaders had the opportunity to attend one of our 24:7 Leadership Training days, Faith on Fire, along with our Youth Ministers last Saturday. It was a fantastic afternoon, where we had the chance as a leadership team, to discuss ideas and vision for where we want 24:7 Whitfords to go in the future. There were separate workshops for volunteer and student leaders, run by 24:7 Youth Ministers from all over the Archdiocese.

The afternoon finished with input from an amazing guest speaker, Marty MacFarlane, a close friend of the 24;7 Family, who talked to us about why and how we can have discussions of Faith with others. He inspired us with his love for our Catholic Faith, Our Lady and the Rosary.

24:7 Greenwood Youth Ministry - 30th August

Youth Group Goal- To explain why it had to be Jesus who saved us from our sins, not someone else.

Goal Status- This was achieved as we had a talk from one of our youth ministers who explained why it had to be Jesus as well as holding small groups to look further into this topic.

Youth Group Attendance- 23

Youth Group Talk / Focus - Sin Part 2: Why it had to be Jesus who saved us from our sins-Anthony

  • At the fall, God said that one of the sons of Eve will crush the serpent’s head. This verse was prophesying that someone would come along and restore humans to our true nature.
  • When we read the old testament, we should always be thinking of this, and as we go along we can see that people like, Moses, Abraham, David, etc., all found favour with God, but still ended up falling into sin during their life.
  • We then broke into small groups and discussed what was different about Jesus (other than being the son of God) and why there had to be a change from sacrificing, like the Israelites did.
