ANZAC DAY - FRIDAY 25Th APRIL
10.00am Assembly at the Coffee Club, Port Douglas
The time has come again where our school is invited to march in the local ANZAC Day March in Port Douglas as a school. Our attendance over recent years has been terrific, and we do ask that each family take seriously this invitation as a citizen of a very peaceful nation to march in respect of those who have fought as ANZACS and veterans of all wars. So, on Friday 25th of April; a public holiday, we encourage all our students to put on their uniforms and march behind their school banner. In addition, this march provides us with the opportunity of giving an important and significant presence of our school within the local communities and the values we stand for. It is, indeed a wonderful sign of the respect and gratitude we encourage in our young for the ex-servicemen and women of our Australian Military, Navy and Airforce. Our school captains will lay the wreath on behalf of our school, and our vice captains will assist in the carrying of the banner on the march.
Congratulations to all on a fabulous St.Augustine’s
Interhouse Cross Country. After many days of wet
weather and at times torrential rain it was doubtful as to
whether the day would go ahead or not. However in full,
humid North Queensland style the day was run.
A huge thank you must go to all the boys and girls who
took the challenge to run and score a point for their
team. The spirit in which our children (especially our
Year 6&7 leaders) participated and encouraged each other
to keep on going even when at times it was tough was
A note will go home early next term for those children
10-13 who will be competing at Interschool level.
