- Virtual Track and Field
SSV has this week launched a 'Track and Field' Virtual event for ALL Primary and Secondary students in Victoria. There are several ways that your child can be involved. They can take part in one or all of the events on offer and there are prize packs to be won in each event. The emphasis is on FUN and encouraging our children to move and 'give it a try'. The events are: Sprints: (60m, 80m, 100m, 200m, 400m) Run or walk: (800m, 1500m) Jumps: (standing long jump and standing triple jump) Throw: (tennis ball shot-put) Combined event: 100m sprint, standing long jump, tennis ball shot-put and 800m run. Visit the School Sport Victoria website https://ssv.vic.edu.au/Pages/SSVVirtualTrackandField.aspx to find out more information and how to enter and upload your child's achievement for each event. Have fun everyone and stay safe. Mr McDermott

- The Talented Mrs Michalke
Whilst we all thought that Mrs Michalke's Cat in the Hat was great, how about seeing exacting how she does it, as she adds The Lorax to the work in the library. Have a look at this fantastic time lapse video of Mrs Michalke at work.
- Social Story on returning to school
With our Preps, Year 1s and Year 2s returning to school on Tuesday, our Assistant Learning Diversity Leader, Ms Erin Engel, has narrated a social story about returning to school during COVID-19. This may be a useful tool for your children as they return back to school.

- HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY
To all of our most charming and most beautiful mothers, grandmothers and maternal influences of ours, we can’t give you the world at the moment but we give you all our love and appreciation. Happy Mothers Day.
- Playground Grand Opening
Yesterday, 15 November, our school came together to celebrate the official opening of the new school playground. Members of the Parents and Friends, School Advisory Board and Bendigo Bank joined our students, staff and families in opening the playground. St Patrick's would like to recognise the generous donations made by both the Bendigo Bank and our Parents and Friends Association to make this a reality. This is a strong testament to what can happen when our school groups work together in partnership, through the school, our families through the P&F and the community through Bendigo Bank. We hope that this project sees our existing and future students have a lot of fun for many years to come.
- UNIFORM SHOP CLOSED DURING REMOTE LEARNING
We are writing to advise families that Academy Uniforms will not open the school shop whilst remote learning is taking place. This means that all Assumption College and St Patrick's uniforms need to be ordered online or at the Thomastown store. More information about school uniform can be found on the school website.
