Camp 2017

Last year in August the Years 5 and 6 students in our Senior cohort went on camp. We stayed at Camp Oasis in Mt Evelyn for 3 days / 2 nights. The children and teachers enjoyed a variety of activities at the camp including: flying fox, reptile house, crate climb, candle making, low ropes course and initiative activities. The food was great and the students had a wonderful time. It was rewarding to receive such positive feedback from the camp staff on how well behaved and co-operative the Clare's students were on camp.

Learning Expo 2017

At the end of Term Two we presented a learning expo that showcased the students’ learning throughout the Faith life Inquiry units and other key learning areas during the term. Parents and other members of the wider St Clare’s community joined us to celebrate the children’s achievements.

St Clare's Feast Day 

The 11th of August is the feast day of St Clare who is our school's patron saint.  We are grateful that Bishop Vincent  Nguyen, our regional bishop, was able to join us on Tuesday, 11 August 2015 to celebrate Mass with Fr Jude on our first St Clare’s Feast Day as a school.  Bishop Vincent enjoyed his first visit to St Clare’s and was welcomed by students, families, school staff and St James parishioners who joined the celebration of Mass.  

It was wonderful to have some parent volunteers supporting the students and staff during the Mass.  We were once again blessed with the support of our parish schools: Thomas Carr College, St James the Apostle and St Francis of Assisi.

Easter Barbecue and Bonnet Parade 2017

Wow, what a night we had with our Easter Barbecue!  It was great to see so many families and friends at our evening enjoying a wonderful time together as part of St Clare’s School community.  Many thanks to our terrific Families and Friends Association who organised and ran such a successful night for us to enjoy. The barbecue, drinks, Easter Bonnet Parade, Easter raffle, guess the number of eggs competition and hot cross buns ran so smoothly due to the tireless work of our F&FA volunteers. Thank-you to Matthew for performing the MC duties.  Of course a big mention and thank-you to Angela and Brian for donating their fairy floss stall and all the ingredients and making loads of fairy floss sticks.  It was a very popular part of the evening, including with a certain principal!  Many thanks to all the families who made donations for the evening.
