St Michael's Primary School Dunedoo

Celebrations!
Congratulations to those students who received the Sacrament of Confirmation with other members of our parish. Bishop Michael McKenna confirmed 6 of our students and afterwards joined other candidates and parishioners in a morning tea in our hall. It was also a very special day for Mitch who received the Eucharist for the first time.
Families celebrated! Schoolmates celebrated! Parishioners celebrated! Thank you to those who celebrated with our students on the day.

St Johns Primary Baradine

Our Year 6 students hit the ground running on their recent excursion to Canberra.  On Day 1 they had a taste of culture at the National Gallery and then got to experience some of the facilities at the Australian Institute of Sport. Highlights on Day 2 included a tour of Parliament House and getting to meet our Federal Member of Parliament, Mark Coulton. Later, the children met the Governor-General, David Hurley, and got to look inside Government House. Evie got to sit in Mrs Hurley’s chair at the dining table!

They are now on their way home.

St Josephs Oberon

Congratulations to those students who represented our school at the Eastern Region Athletics Carnival on Wednesday in Bathurst. All students tried their absolute best and showed wonderful sportsmanship. Thank you to all parents and carers who transported and supported our students and to the teachers who also came and assisted on the day.

Special mention to Ashleigh, Jason, Max, Harry and Tobias who have qualified to attend the next carnival to be held in Dubbo on the 19 August.
