Joseph trusted in God.
Even if we are afraid or troubled…. Let us trust in God.
Joseph was truthful
Even when it is hard to be honest….. Let us never be ashamed to speak the truth.
Joseph was respectful
Even if we feel they do not deserve our respect…. Let us respect ourselves and others.
Joseph was faithful
Even in times of doubt…. Let us be people of faith.
Joseph was a man of honour.
Even if we fail at times…. Let us strive to be people of honour.
You were a faithful husband to Mary
And you watched over Jesus when he was a boy.
We ask you to watch over us too.
Pray for us that we will trust God in all things as you did.

Absolutely amazing fund raising!
Please keep fundraising, you have until Thursday 1st April.
If you are collecting cash then we would appreciate if you count up the amount and transfer it via your child's fundraising account at schoolfundraising.com.au
This will lessen money handling by office staff and make prize selection easier for your child.
Children are encouraged to wear a white top (with sleeves - either short sleeve or long sleeve but NOT sleeveless), shorts and runners to school on the day of the fun run.
Whilst the colour will wash out quite easily it is suggested that children wear an old white top or an inexpensive white top purchased for the day.
We understand that some children will want to participate in the run but not get covered in the coloured powder. These children may wish to wear a colourful top rather than a white top.
Please ensure that your child/ren have:
- their drink bottle
- recess snack and additional food for lunch (if necessary)
- their school sun hat
- sunscreen applied
- change of clothes and runners (if necessary).
