TERM 2 RUNNING CLUB – Starting WEEK 2 (Thursday 4 May)
All students in Kindy to Year 6 and their families are encouraged to join Miss Uglow on the Primary Green every Thursday morning to run as many laps around the Green as you can! No matter what your ability is, come on down to earn House points, improve your fitness, build your confidence and run your way towards a healthier lifestyle.
Each participating individual will be given their own Running Club lapathon card to count their laps every week. Runners will earn 1 Running Club House Point for every lap they complete around the Primary Green. Running Club lapathon cards must be left with Miss Uglow at the end of each session. You will use the same running club card each week unless you have reached 100 laps… after that you will need a new one!
TERM 1 OVERALL RUNNING CLUB House Points: (drum roll please…)
Congratulations to CHARIS House for the most laps in Term 1 2023, followed closely by Parresia and Makaria.

We will meet on the Primary Green every THURSDAY morning (starting in Week 2) from 8.00am – 8.25am. Come dressed in your sport uniform or normal school uniform and running shoes. You can still participate even if you are not dressed in your sport uniform! Everyone is welcome – you do not need to sign up to participate in this club.

Parent Series – Cultivating Resilience
We invite you to attend the first lecture of our new Parent Series presented by Dr Mandie Shean – “Cultivating Resilience”.
“My experience has taught me to focus on the community around the child rather than the child. We spend so much time trying to fix the child when we really need to fix the toxic environment they are in and then I usually see them flourish.”
Dr Mandie Shean is a teacher and registered psychologist who has featured on The Project, the ABC, Channel 9, Triple J and Radio National. Dr Shean spent twenty years as a Primary School Teacher, three years as a School Psychologist and the past 10 years lecturing at Edith Cowan University whilst pursuing her research. In between, she has worked as a school chaplain and a children’s pastor. As a Consultant Psychologist, Dr Shean has been engaged by the Department of Education and Training, as well as the Catholic Education Office to implement and evaluate student programs dealing with mental health and wellness.
Dr Shean’s research has focused on increasing student wellbeing through the development of resilience and creating strong community bonds. Her lecture will provide practical tools for you to assist your child in overcoming stressful situations and challenges.
