This week sees West Taylor Bridge athletics trials at the University of Queensland, St Lucia. We congratulate those who competed yesterday and encourage those who will compete tomorrow. We have had quite a number of personal bests and some qualifying for MetWest Trials later in the term. Thank you to our parents and staff who have helped to organise transport for these athletics trials – due to the nature of this event, it is not practical to run a bus throughout the day from/to our school, so each year we rely on parents for assistance. Other sporting trials still continue throughout the term, so please keep checking for notices and requests in newsletters. Miss Cashman spoke on assembly this week regarding Cricket trials – so please check the latest newsletter for further details.

Our instrumental music program and choir are busy preparing for the Queensland Catholic Schools and Colleges Music Festival (QCMF). We acknowledge the hard work and extra effort of both students and staff in preparation for this event. Thank you to our parents who ensure everyone makes it to early before-school practices. It will be a great experience for all of these students to perform on the 12th of August.

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.
