Welcome everyone to Week 6!
On Monday our Year 6 students headed off to see the sights of Canberra, they will return on Wednesday. We wish them a great time, full of fun and learning.
Our Transition for our 2024 kinders continued this week. They do bring a spark to our school and one was heard saying to their mum on pickup “today was the best day ever!”
Please click on the button below to read a briefing paper from the Catholic Education Diocese of Wagga Wagga which explains 'A Balanced Literacy Approach' on implementing Reading in Kinder to Year 2.
This paper outlines the Diocesan approach that is research and evidence based. This aligns to our St Anne's current approach and practices.
In 2024, we will be presenting a parent information evening to unpack this document in the context of St Anne's School teaching and learning in the area of Literacy. This meeting will be held on Wednesday, 6th March (Week 6, Term 1).
Term Four is always a busy term (like most I guess!) and our school is very busy. A reminder that if your child is worried about anything to make sure you don’t hesitate to let the teacher know. If we know, then we can follow up on any matters and support them. We are all here for the best interests of the children.
Mrs Nicole Morton has been appointed to Xavier School as its new Principal. We wish Nicole all the best in her new and important role. Nicole was a parent of St Anne’s before leaving to accept a Principalship in Dubbo, before returning to Albury and Xavier School.
The end of year reports will be coming home on Friday 8th December.
I will be on Long Service Leave for a couple of weeks to attend my daughter's wedding. Looking forward to catching up before the end of the year.
Keep well and happy,

Xavier Orientation Day
Last Tuesday our Yr 6 students transitioning to Xavier High School next year, enjoyed an Orientation Day. Much fun was had learning their House groups for 2024 as well as experiencing some of the areas of study.
Remembrance Day Service
Our Uniform Shop is open each Friday from 3-3.30pm. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your requirements if you can't make that time and we will pass your request on to Luisa to process.
We have lots of good quality second hand uniform items for sale as well as new hats, bags and art smocks.
Our Qkr! App is the platform that we use to process transactions for our Canteen Orders and some special events, like the School Disco.
Qkr! is an efficient and accurate way of tallying our daily canteen orders and a brilliant time saver when collating and organising our students' lunch orders.
Recently we have had several students report that they have not received their lunch orders, only to find that the canteen has no record of their order. We would suggest that parents check their receipt on the Qkr! App to ensure that their order has been processed for the correct date and for the correct menu items and quantity.
Compass School Manager
Our Compass School Manager is the platform that we communicate with parents about all aspects of their child's school life. Our school attendance, calendar, news feed, student reports, parent teacher conference bookings, event consent/payments and many other services are accessible.
We strongly advise all parents to ensure that they have access to their Compass account on a mobile App or a desktop computer. All parents are issued a username and temporary password when their child is enrolled at St Anne's. If you are experiencing any difficulties accessing your account, please don't hesitate to contact Karon on email@example.com.
