FUNDING LETTER TO PARENTS
With the NSW Government announcing that it has signed a deal with the Commonwealth on new school funding arrangements, attached is an update on the likely impact of these new arrangements on our Catholic schools.
Letter to Parents
All students were very excited to compete and race the 2 and 3 kilometre tracks at Horsley Park oval. The track was very hilly and uneven and it was a kilometre long which meant that some of us had to run it 3 whole times!
We all cheered each other on as the two heats were underway. I was so tired after my first lap that I decided to stroll the rest of the way but many other students flew to the finish in very good times.
The children from the red team were at the head of the races earning their team 92 points, placing them first on the 2013 sports leadership board.
Many students will now participate in the District cross country in May at Miranda and we wish them all the best.
It was a very enjoyable day.

On Wednesday 13th March, Marion Catholic Primary School had their very exiting open day. It was a fun day for the whole school.
In the morning we had the kindy farm. We got to feed the animals and pat them which made the goats very excited and jumpy. After lunch we had the reptile man and he showed us 2 lizards, a turtle and a snake. When he finished talking about the reptile animals we got a chance to pat them. We also got extra play time at
My favourite part of the day was patting the reptiles and getting more time to play. Overall this was a really enjoyable day and I hope the new parents of our school enjoyed this experience.

INTERACTIVE DRUMMING BY AFRICAN BEAT
On the 20th of March The West African drummer, Tuso, came to Marion Catholic Primary School to show all the students the art of native drumming.
He showed everyone, even the teachers,
Not only was it a whole heap of fun, it was also very educational learning about all the different drums and how and why they make that sound.
The highlight of the Incursion was when he brought in nearly 100 native style drums for all the students to have a go at playing a beat.
We all had a blast.
