During Week 2 of Term 4 the Reception to Year 6 students will be celebrating Book Week, which will be held consecutively with our annual Book Fair.
The theme for Book Week this year is Curious Creature, Wild Minds!
During the Book Fair, students will come to the Library in Week 1 and view all the books available and if needed, complete a wish list.
On Thursday 22 October students are invited to dress up as their favourite book character. If students choose to dress up, they will need to wear/bring their sport uniform under their costume so they can change when instructed by their teacher.
At Caritas College we are committed to providing an excellent Catholic education in the Josephite tradition to enable students to reach their full potential. We understand and value the role of information technology (IT) in 21st century learning, and endeavour to use it to inspire a love of learning. We are pleased to communicate to families that the Laptop Program for Years 7-9 will commence from the beginning of Term 4. Each student will be responsible for their own laptop and will need to adhere to our College's Acceptable User Agreement which provides clear information about their rights and responsibilities of having a school owned device.
A number of workshops have been scheduled by subject teachers for students during the holidays. The aim of these workshops is to spend time working through set tasks as well as providing extra support for students who have asked for it.
