The end of Term one brings some very weary students and staff who have had a wonderful start to 2019! The term has been very busy with lots of learning, sport and activities that have made St Joseph’s a great place to be.
We look forward to commemorating Anzac Day this Friday with the students from Adelong Public School at the Cenotaph. We will then have morning tea in the park and share our Easter good will with the community who might be walking up the main street at that time (might be a good place to be from 11.30 am!)
Thank you for your continued support of St Joseph’s especially with being an integral part of your child’s education. Fortnightly assemblies, open classrooms, school masses, carnivals, canteen, Community Council meetings and the list goes on.
Next term will be a busy term again with many things happening in the first couple of weeks. I will be on leave in Week 2 and Mrs Liz Murray will be Acting Principal for the week. Liz will still have her usual teaching duties as well as being in charge!
The Primary students presented the Stations of the Cross yesterday. It was wonderful to see all the effort they had put into researching their station and presenting to the rest of the school. The children did a fabulous job and now everyone has a much deeper understanding of the Stations. The Primary students chose how to present their information – as a video, newspaper article, poster or a combination of different ways.
I wish all of our St Joseph’s families a blessed, peaceful and Happy Easter! May you have a wonderful break full of happiness and a well deserved rest!

Monday Lunch Canteen
We would like to thank all the parents who have volunteered for the canteen so far this year. If anyone else is able to spare a Monday once a term, it would be great to have more names on the list. Alternatively, If anyone would like to help with the canteen, but is not able to do a Monday shift, it would be great to have a stock monitor and orderer. With the changes to the canteen menu, most of the items are purchased fresh each week from the Adelong Supermarket. So there is not much to order, but ideally, someone that regularly attends drop off or pick up, if they were able to pop into the canteen once a fortnight and check stock levels, it would be an easy way to contribute.
