Easter Joy of the Christian
Easter is the time to celebrate new beginnings. Easter commemorates the Resurrection of Jesus Christ and is the most significant Christian celebration. It is the time that is at the heart of Christianity. Good Friday recalls the death of Jesus on a cross and then being laid in a tomb. When his closest friends went to the tomb very early on the Sunday morning they encountered the unexpected and the news that Jesus was not there. Jesus had been raised from the dead.
Christians believe that Jesus was without sin and an innocent man sentenced to death on the cross. God in raising him from the dead showed all that Jesus had victory over death. God enables life, reconciles differences and upholds justice.
North Beach Easter Mass Times
Digital communication is a marvellous thing. It enables us to be in touch with others, whether they live close by or on the other side of the world, at all times of the day or night and it is cheap.
From time to time we issue alerts to the parents of particular class groups in which a child has been diagnosed with an infectious or contagious disease. Just as often, the diagnosis is only confirmed after the child in question has recovered from the illness.
Katie Tindall Leaves OLG Board
On behalf of the OLG school community I sincerely thank them both for the many hours they spent participating in meetings and the many more hours they spent preparing for those meetings.
Katie Tindall has left a lasting legacy from her time on our School Board and I was pleased to be able to present her with a small token of our appreciation at last week's assembly. I also sincerely thank the families of our Board members who support/put up with, their involvement in the school at this level.
Our loss of Katie has been Sacred Heart's gain as she is now a member of their Board.
Congratulations to the students who received Merit Awards at last week's assembly.

OLG Run for Fun commences Term 2
“OLG Run for Fun” is a free running club where kids of all ages and fitness levels can come together before school to run and exercise in a positive and supportive environment. Parents and grandparents are also welcome to come along for fitness and quality time with their children.
We all know running is a great way to get fit, but it offers so much more. Kids who exercise in the morning are generally more engaged and focussed during lesson time. Running clubs enable kids to build friendships and have fun. Running builds healthy hearts and minds and brings joy to children.
The Running Club is run by volunteer parents each Tuesday and Thursday morning during school terms and will commence on Tuesday 2nd May 2017. It will include some warm up activities and games and there will be a couple of running courses, of different lengths, around Charles Riley Reserve to suit different ages and fitness levels. There will be no free breakfast or awards - it’s just for participation and fun.
As the Running Club is run by parents, students in Year 3 or below must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to ensure adequate supervision. A permission slip will need to be completed before your child can participate. Permission slips will be available for signing at the first session your child chooses to attend.
Days: Every Tuesday and Thursday morning (starting 2nd May 2017)
The body achieves what the mind believes.
This FREE parent run club meets every Tuesday and Thursday at 8am in the undercover area.
