SCHOOL FEE ACCOUNTS

Fee accounts for Term 2 are being sent home this week. Payment is due by Friday 7 June. Families are still able to set up a direct debit if they wish. Please contact Ann Fissioli (fissioli.ann@cathednet.wa.edu.au) if you have any queries in regard to your account.

PARENT CONTACT DETAILS

Please ensure that your contact details (phone, email, emergency contacts) are up-to-date as it is important that we are able to contact you if necessary. If you think your details need updating please email them to us (admin@orana.wa.edu.au). Thank you for your cooperation in this regard.

SCHOLASTIC BOOK CLUB ORDERS

Your child / children have received the next Scholastic Book club order forms. These need to be completed with payment and returned to the class teacher or the office by Friday 24 May 2013. Please check that the order is correct and that it has your child's name and class on it. All orders contribute to free books for the Library and classrooms and are greatly appreciated. We are very lucky to have a new mum, Rachel Heron (Kindy), who will be coordinating the orders with the help of Michelle Puttick (Year 4) as Marie LeGuier is no longer at the school. Thank you.

MOTHERS DAY EVENING

A reminder that the P & F have organized a Mothers Day celebration in the school hall on Friday 17 May from 7.30pm until 10.30pm. Nibbles, coffee and tea provided for a gold coin donation. We look forward to seeing you there.

ENTERTAINMENT BOOKS

Thank you to all those who have purchased Entertainment Books so far this year. There are only 15 left so if you would like one please let the office know, as they are proving to be extremely popular and selling fast. Only two restaurant meals and the book is paid for - everything else is a bonus.

WHY SHOULD I PRAY THIS WAY?

You are invited to an Intercessory Prayer Seminar which will be conducted by Kaye Rollings of Flame Ministries International over three consecutive Wednesday evenings. Intercessory prayer is very different to the prayers of petition often associated with intercession. This seminar will cover the many and various forms of Catholic and mystical prayer in both praying blessings and spiritual warfare. To this end, Kaye will give an in-depth explanation from biblical principles and her experience and will involve the participants in experiential exercises. The seminar will be held at the Church of Ss John and Paul, Willetton on Wednesday 22, 29 May and 5 June 2013 at 7.30pm.

OASIS PRAYER GROUP

The Oasis Prayer Group will not be meeting over the next three weeks (23, 30 May and 6 June) as we are joining the John Paul Prayer Ministry on Wednesday evenings to attend Kaye Rollings talks. All welcome. We will meet again on 13 June 2013. Sandy Correia 0432 428 919.

LOST PET

A neighbour's pet cat is missing. She is often at the back gate greeting the children as they arrive at school and has a habit of getting into cars. If you have seen the cat please contact the school office. Thank you.

FETE

Come along to our fete at Our Lady of Mount Carmel on Sunday 19 May 2013 from 10.00am to 3.00pm, 82 Collick Street, Hilton. A gold coin donation entry at the gate. There will be stalls, rides, activities, prizes and competitions and food for all.
