Savio Campus News

The Waler Pony
Thank you to Ms Holly Breakey who organised a visit by Angela Tiedy who has gifted the school a Waler pony. Classes were able to view “Coolibah” and hear about the effort of these Waler ponies during World War 1.

The waler pony was the focus of this year’s ANZAC ceremony. Thank you to students Bailey Meneghetti (Year 8 Naughton) and Emily Woodbridge (Year 8 MacKillop) pictured who look after Coolibah all day for us.

Students have also been able to view first hand artefacts from the wars sent to us by the Shrine of Remembrance. Students have been able to handle helmets, uniforms and documents with the aid of gloves to ensure these precious items are not damaged.

Testing takes place in Week 4 of the term. Year 7 students will be given information about this next Friday, 12 May in assembly.

Savio Assembly
Our next assembly for the year takes place on Friday 5 May at 12pm in the stadium – all parents are welcome.

Parent Teacher interviews
It was great to see so many parents, especially of Year 7 at the recent interviews. Schoolbox is now operational for parents – please continue to check your child’s progress online through this and contact the subject teacher directly if you have any concerns.
