Mary Queen of Heaven Newsletter Term 2 – Week 11

27th June 2024

Dear Families,


As we come to the end of another term of learning, growth and connection we give thanks for all that has been achieved and welcome the holidays as a time for rest and rejuvenation.  We thank you all for your ongoing support of your children and our school in ensuring we work together for the betterment of all in our community. 


“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” (Mathew 11)

Father in Heaven,

As we come to the end of Term 2, we take this moment to reflect on the impact we have had as a community. We thank You for the opportunities we have had to teach, guide, and support one another.

Lord, help us to see the fruits of our labor, the growth in our students, and the strength of our community. May we recognize the positive changes we have brought into the lives of those around us and find satisfaction in our efforts.

As we enter this break, we ask for Your blessings of rest and renewal. Grant us the peace and tranquility needed to recharge our minds and bodies. Let this time be filled with moments of joy, relaxation, and reflection.

Help us to return with renewed energy and enthusiasm, ready to face the challenges and opportunities of the new term. May our time away be refreshing, and may it strengthen our commitment to our mission and each other.

We thank You for Your guidance and support throughout this term and trust in Your continued presence with us.

In Your loving name, we pray  Amen.


Upcoming Events

Please Leave toys at home

Read Time: ( words)

Throughout the course of this term we have noticed an increase in children bringing items to school.  Items brought to school can cause a whole realm of problems, particularly in the school yard.  They can get lost, damaged, cause injuries to others, get ‘traded’ or cause sharing issues.  They also act as a distraction for children during learning time.

From next term we are asking for all items to be left at home.  We have plenty for the children to do at recess and lunch times with soccer/football, netball/basketball, sandpit toys, skipping, hula hoops, passive play, hopskotch to name a few.  We thank you for your support with this.  Any items brought in will be held by staff and returned at the end of the school day.

Traffic flow and parking

Thank you all for your patience as the Mickleham Rd upgrade continues and the area around our school remains impacted by road works.  It has been wonderful to see so many of our families using French Rd parking and French Rd entry gate, this has really helped with traffic flow.  It has been just as wonderful to see our ‘kiss and drop’ area develop into a quick stop and get out of the car system.  In order to increase safety further can I please ask that if you are parking on the far side of Hillview Rd, please walk your children to the round-about and cross the road there.  This ensures that you can be seen and there is limited risk of a parked car hitting pedestrians upon take off or reversing into pedestrians.  Please be mindful of pedestrians when parking your car and taking off from the car park area.   We need to work together to ensure pedestrians and moving cars are separated as much as possible

School Assembly

Last week we held our first school assembly in the upstairs senior classrooms.  This is a larger space that accommodates our growing community much more comfortably.  Assembly begins at 2:30.  To ensure we can begin on time and the children feel heard and seen and not interrupted, please arrive on time or just before so that we can settle our audience ready to begin.  Staff will always be there to direct and welcome you.  We look forward to this space working for us as we continue to grow.
