Dear Parents, Carers, Teachers and Students,
Congratulations on getting to the end of Term 2! As I look around and talk to people I see and hear tiredness, but I also see and hear joy and laughter and I am thankful for our community. I am grateful for the way our community has come together to support each other this semester. Each of you has played an important role in making the this a great semester.
At the end of every term, I want to say ‘what a big term it has been’, but really it is always like that for schools. Sometimes friends and family members poke fun about “what an easy life it is to be a teacher with all of those holidays”.
I know that many of you see that for 10 weeks at a time the school day never really ends, the weekend is spent preparing for the week ahead and that holidays are used to plan and prepare for the coming term because if you don’t, you will never really catch up once the first day of term starts. Normally we are like middle distance runners rather than marathon runners. Schools ‘go hard’ for ten weeks at a time and then slow the pace right down for two weeks in between terms to recoup. However last two years’ experience for everyone has been very different and has often felt like an extremely long-distance marathon with the end now insight. I’m sure families are feeling the same way!
Thank you to all our parents for your ongoing support for your child’s learning both last term and this term. It has been wonderful to have your continuous support with your child’s learning. The children and staff appreciate all that you do to support and help them.
As we journey through the last week of this term, I wish you all a well-rested and well-deserved school holidays full of extra sleep and less rushing around.
Leaving St Clare of Assisi
If you anticipate that your child will leave St Clare of Assisi at the end of this year, could you please notify the Front Office. We need to begin planning for staffing and class configurations for 2023. Thank you to those who have let us know already, this is very much appreciated. Naturally Year 6 parents need not respond to this request.

Squiggles Match Report
Halfway through the season, the Squiggles have come such a long way since their first game of netball! Their confidence in passing, creating space, defending, shooting and understanding the boundaries of each position is wonderful to watch. They’re really coming together as a team and the team bond is so strong!
This week the Squiggles played the HF Freddo’s and it was a great game from the first centre pass! A few highlights from the game were Amali’s strong passes and two quick goals in the first quarter – she made it look so easy. Emma and Tahlia showed amazing defence with many intercepts and great team work to ‘stick like glue’ to their players so the ball didn’t make it into the other shooting circle!
Delilah and Evie dominated the centre court in the second quarter, creating space for the team to move the ball to our goal third and did some of the best passes we’ve seen all season! Adelaide did a great job moving around the circle and caught a great pass and got our next goal in!
Zaria got a goal in the third quarter, and was able to quickly change to defence mode when needed to get fantastic intercepts.
In the final quarter, Ivy shone in the centre court, creating space and chasing the ball down like it was her treasure! Lily was brilliant moving around the goal defenders, leading for the ball and getting our last goal in for the game.
Adelaide’s movement to create space on the court got her the player of the week award this week!
We are so proud of the girls, and how dedicated and determined they are to try their best at any position we give them, and the way they support each other as a team. They all enjoy doing our team cheer at the end of each game, always with massive smiles on their faces!
Smiggles Match Report
The Smiggles played a tough game on Saturday against Hurricanes.
All the girls defended really well, we needed to get our passes over the top and around some very tall players and our passes were great.
The girls have trained really hard every week and are getting the ball down the court with great passes and loud voices calling for the ball and getting into free space.
All the girls play so well as team hard to believe they have only been playing for half a season together.
Smiggles favourite warm up is fast feet it gets the girls ready to train hard and play amazing netball.
