- School Uniform Survey
Considering some recent queries to the school and State government school amendments, we thought it was timely to conduct a survey regarding our current school uniform. This survey should take about 10 minutes and we would appreciate as many families participating as possible to ensure that we get a broad cross-section of views from our families. The survey can be found at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/3J62Q3Z and will be open until Friday 24th November.
- Ditto visits Preps
Our Prep students have been learning about YES and NO feelings during their Health classes this term. This included learning about Ditto’s rules to help keep them safe and how their body might react if they were having unsure or ‘no’ feelings. To culminate this area of study, Ditto from the Bravehearts organisation visited all of the Prep students to help reinforce the messages of being able to say ‘NO’ and ‘Run and Tell’ if they have a no feeling. The performance engaged the students through singing, following actions and humour to reinforce the importance of Ditto's message.
- What is Restorative Practice?
Last Thursday Martin Prior, our Wellbeing and Community Coach, led a family forum on Restorative Practices, which is a significant element of the school's overall behaviour management program.

- Bombers leading the way.
Our Grade 6 students were lucky enough to have Orazio Fantasia, Kyle Langford and Josh Green from the Essendon Football Club visit them on Monday. The focus of the players talk was to do with leadership and the qualities that leaders need. They also discussed goal setting and how they work towards achieving their personal goals. Question time was then given with our students asking a wide variety of questions about the players personal journeys to playing in the AFL, training and diet choices and their thoughts on various opponents! Many thanks to the Essendon Football Club for fitting St. Pat's into their busy schedules!
