1 ST PETER S CATHOLIC PARISH PRIMARY SCHOOL Thursday 14th September 2017 Week 9 To the St Peter s community, On Tuesday evening and again tonight, our year three students participated in the Sacrament of Reconciliation for the first time and came to understand that it is a gift to be treasured. The peace of mind and soul which this sacrament imparts to us is one that has no substitute. It is a peace that flows from a certainty, rather than from an unsure hope, that our sins have been forgiven and that we are once again right with God. The sacrament by which sins could be forgiven was started by Jesus on the very day he rose from the dead. On Easter Sunday Jesus appeared to his Apostles where they were gathered together in the Upper Room. In their mixture of fear and dawning hope, Jesus spoke to them reassuringly. Jesus came and stood in the midst and said to them, Peace be to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you. When he had said this, he breathed upon them, and said to them, Receive the Holy Spirit; whose sins you shall forgive, they are forgiven them; and whose sins you shall retain, they are retained. The power which Jesus conferred upon his Apostles to forgive sin, like the power to change bread and wine into his Body and Blood, has been passed on through every priest when he raises his hand over the sorry sinner and says the words of absolution. This gift is available to us all, Jesus did not live and die just to save a few, He came to save everybody who was willing to be saved, down to the end of time. Forgiveness is at the heart of the Gospels. Firstly God forgives us of all our sin. Then he expects us to live out the same grace in our daily lives. To harbour resentment, bitterness and not forgive is to show that we have not allowed the grace of God to deeply penetrate our hearts. Forgiving other people is hard work. It goes against our human nature to do this. Most of us want to keep a record of wrongs to justify ourselves. The deeper the hurt we have suffered the longer it will take to move to the place of letting go. In the Gospel (Matthew 18:21-35) this Sunday Peter and Jesus have a revealing dialogue about forgiveness. Whatever its form, however trivial, however serious, there is a time for hating to stop in every life, in all our relationships, and throughout our world. This may not always be easy; it might not come quickly, but we are called to recapture the fact that we live our lives for the Lord, not merely for ourselves. Hating will only stop when forgiveness begins. How often must we forgive? Always. Why? Because God has forgiven us in Christ. God s commandment is that we must love our enemies, and His kind of love keeps no record of wrongs. We Pray Father please help me to respond to your forgiving grace by forgiving those who sin against me. Rescue me from all forms of bitterness, hatred and revenge; let me show your love to others. Amen. This Sunday we also celebrate the Sacrament of Confirmation with our year six students. Please keep them in your prayers as they finalise their preparations. Have a wonderful weekend, Kerry Miller Principal DATES TO REMEMBER Student Led Learning Conversation - Wednesday 20th September Footy Colours Day - Thursday 21st September Whole School Green Day - Friday 22nd September End of Term 3 - Friday 22nd September 3.25pm Sacrament of Reconciliation - Thursday 14th September Sacrament of Confirmation - Sunday 17th September Term 4 Begins - Monday 9th October School Production- November 15th & 16th

My day began at 9.00am as I got dressed ready for the big day. I felt nervous because all of the people were staring at me as I walked in. As mass went on I felt calmer because it was getting closer to my turn to receive the bread and wine. Now I feel blessed because I am one step closer to God. By Natasha Xavier First Reconciliation reflection On Tuesday I made my First Reconciliation, at the beginning I felt nervous and afterwards I felt happy because I made my second sacrament. There were 6 priests on Tuesday night as well as some other students from the parish and St Peter s students. I am looking forward to making my Eucharist next year.

Outdoor Learning Day Outdoor Learning Day is a day to celebrate and inspire outdoor learning and play. On Thursday 7 September 2017, thousands of schools around the world took learning outside and prioritised playtime. Why? Outdoor learning improves children s health, engages them with learning and leads to a greater connection with nature. Play not only teaches critical life skills such as resilience, teamwork and creativity, but is central to children s enjoyment of childhood. Last Thursday the students and teachers at St Peter s school celebrated International Outdoor Learning Day. Each level as well as STEAM took the opportunity to take learning outside. Some of the experiences included: Senior - Reading stamina in the great outdoors. Exploring personal safety in outdoor environments. Middle - 3D shape hunt in our outdoor spaces. Junior - Read to Someone on the hills of St Peters Prep Spirit - National Ryder Day- exploring the fun of mud. STEAM - explored Jeannie Baker books and collected natural materials from outdoors to create environments.

4 Staff Professional Learning On Thursday 31 August staff at St Peter s participated in choice outdoor/indoor professional learning opportunities to identify and explore learning environments that challenges, engages and empowers all students to be confident and achieving learners in and beyond the indoor learning space. These included the Royal Melbourne Zoo, the National Art Gallery, the Botanical Gardens and the Journeys into Discovery Conference. Each team prepared a presentation of learning to share with the staff and identified actions to support animated learners that will be implemented to further support engagement of students. Julie Percy - Director of Learning & Teaching SCHOOL COMMUNITY St Peter s Official Facebook Page We are excited to announce we will soon be launching the official St Peter s Facebook Page. We are aware that there are other unofficial pages carrying the St Peter s name, however this will be a school administered page.

The page will go live prior to the end of term, with the link being shared with families in a letter to be sent home soon regarding communication at St Peter s. Loose Change Challenge The Loose Change Challenge is an initiative that asks students to bring in as much loose change as they wish to raise funds for the school. Each contact group will have a container to keep their coins in. There will be a reward for the group that collects the most money in this period. The challenge is already underway and will conclude on Friday 13th October (the end of Week 1). Earn and Learn Woolworths Earn and Learn is coming to a conclusion soon. Please ensure you are collecting stickers when shopping at woolworths and all stickers are sent to school by the end of the term. Footy Day Footy Day will take place on Thursday 21st September.
