Parents & Friends Activities

There will be a meeting this Friday 28th June at 12:30 to begin organising the Father's Day stall. If you are available, please meet in the 3/4B classroom. If you are unable to attend at this time but would like to be part of organising the stall, please email Fiona Bell at fbell@stvmorwell.catholic.edu.au
We will also be having another gathering after school on Thursday 18th July to discuss other potential activities we can do to support our school community and our children - We hope to see you there.  Again the offer is there,  if these times don't suit please feel free to reach out us to offer your assistance.

National Simultaneous Storytime

Remember that today to celebrate National Simultaneous Storytime everyone is invited to wear a splash of blue ...... or a lot!

Planned Power Outage

This afternoon we received notice from AusNet that the school site will be impacted by a Planned Power Outage on THURSDAY 23RD MAY between 8.45am until 3.00pm.

We have been in contact with AusNet and Gippsland Water to assess the impact on the school. 

At this stage it is highly likely that the school will not be able to open so we are providing advanced warning this evening as we know this will be a significant inconvenience to both families and staff.

By Monday we expect to be able to have a confirmed plan of action

Mother's Day Stall

I hope everyone has had a great finish to their week.  After a foggy start the sun came out for the Cross-Country team to enjoy near perfect conditions to compete in the District Inter-school event.

Today I was approached by a small band of generous volunteers who have picked up responsibility to coordinate a Mother's Day Stall.  This is so wonderful after not having significant numbers of volunteers stepping forward to organise such events.

The team is currently putting together initially planning but will near plenty of support next week to prepare the items and then conduct the sales.  If you would like to be involved please reach out to Fiona via email at fbell@stvmorwell.catholic.edu.au

The team are meeting again after school on Monday in the Gym if you would like to help out.

Have a lovely weekend.

ANZAC Day 2024

ANZAC Day 2024

As dawn breaks across Australia this morning communities have gathered to participate in Dawn Services across our major cities and in our smallest rural communities.

This term at St.Vincent's our children have learnt more about ANZAC Day through literacy and art lessons, with our Student Leadership Team attending the Shrine of Remembrance ANZAC Day event last week.
Today our school will participate in the Morwell RSL Parade and Service, with our student leaders invite to be in the parade and lay a wreath during the service. We encourage all school families to consider attending this important annual event. Please note that the 2024 route will be different to the past few years, starting from the Town Common and travelling along Elgin Street to the RSL for the Service.
The event is scheduled to start at 11.30am with details listed on the Latrobe City website. We anticipate that the parade will begin forming up at around 11.15am at the Town Common.
