April 1, 2015: Cross Country Carnival
St Matthew's annual Cross Country Carnival was held on Thursday 26 March. Looking back on that day, all the children enjoyed themselves and displayed exceptional behaviour and sportsmanship despite the heat and wet grounds. Ribbons were awarded to all finishes and points were recorded to determine the winning house.

Keogh (Blue) house group was awarded extra points for sportsmanship on the day and finished on 587, O’Shea (Goldl) 727, Russel (Red) 754 and on a remarkable 807 points to Sheridan (Green). Overall the day was an enjoyable event for both the students, parents and staff.

Once again we are calling on your generosity. Classes are currently collecting stationery items for families in need at St Paul’s Catholic School at Woodridge. There are many new families at that school with no means of supplying the necessary items for classroom use. Exercise books, pencils, textas, glue etc. are all needed. If you can help in any way, it would be much appreciated! Please send the stationery to your child’s teacher or the school office. Thank you for your generosity.
