CODE CLUB

​It was great to see the efforts of our Code Club on display in the hall this week. We are holding our St Joseph’s RoboCup during the lunch break, with a variety of design and programming challenges for the groups. Yesterday we saw groups take on the Driving Test and Dance Challenge. The groups attempting the driving challenge had to construct a robot to drive the set course – which included stopping at a pedestrian crossing and also parking in a set parking bay. The dance challenge required the groups to construct a robot that could be programmed and choreographed to ‘dance’ to a short piece of music. Tomorrow will have some groups attempting the Rescue Challenge, which involves building a robot that is programmed to follow a set path using sensors and then ‘rescue’ an object.

ST JOSEPH'S CENTENARY

You may be aware that next year marks the centenary of the school. There will be a couple of significant celebrations for you to note in calendars.

  • On Saturday evening, 28 January 2017 at 6.00pm Mass we will celebrate the 100 year anniversary of the Sisters’ arrival in Corinda to start the school. Staff, students, past students and families will all be welcome and some will be asked to take part at various times in the Mass.

  • On Saturday 27 May 2017 we will hold a celebratory day at the school. There will be a Mass in the morning followed by some entertainment by the classes, open classrooms for all to visit, memorabilia to look at, food and some rides for the younger members (or young at heart!) of our community. Please take note of these dates now so that you can all be here to celebrate 100 years of education here at St Joseph's.

 

ENROLMENTS 2017 

I trust that all the sibling enrolment application forms have been lodged by now. At this stage demand for Prep placements in 2017 is high, with more applications than we have spaces. Our enrolment policy is to offer places to younger siblings of current students, then Catholic children from within the Parish, then Catholic children from other Parishes and finally, non-Catholic applicants. For our own planning, you can see why it is important that we have all sibling applications in prior to these interviews – we need to know how many places we can offer to new families. After we have made all offers of placement to our new families by June/July, it can be very difficult to fit in a late or forgotten sibling application in November and December.
