SSP 30th Anniversary Mass

Today, a beautiful Mass was concelebrated by Fr Francis and Fr Darius to acknowledge the 30th Anniversary of SSP.  Thank you to all the parents and families who joined us for this very moving celebration.

How exciting it was to have Renae Hughes (nee Wilkinson) with us.  Renae is an original SSP student who spent 1987 at Whitford Catholic Primary School before the class moved to our school site in 1988.  She is now a part of SSP as a parent of Charlotte and Cameron.  Renae’s memories of the early years at SSP include:

  • Sand everywhere.
  • Going to Mrs Graham in the office to tell her there was another snake outside. Mrs Graham would get her trusty shovel and get rid of the snake.
  • Fr Simon Carson, the foundation Parish Priest, who was a huge Eagles fan.
  • Walking to the local park for Phys Ed lessons.
  • Being with one group of children throughout her primary school years, before the school grew to 3 classes in each year level.

Tomorrow we continue our SSP Day celebrations with our Fun Run and then our stalls in the afternoon (a reminder to not park in the Church car park or entrance due to a funeral).  Also, it is a free dress day for a gold coin donation and we look forward to a huge day of fun!

Kind regards SSP

St Simon Peter Day Reminder

This week we celebrate our school and its heritage, firstly with a whole school Mass on Thursday 28 June at 9.00am celebrating our 30 Year Anniversary of our school being on this site.  We would love to see lots of parents/families join us for this celebration followed by morning tea at school.

On Friday 29 June, we have some fun events.  We start with our major school fundraising event for the year – the Fun Run for Pre Primary – Year 6 students.  Students are busy getting sponsorship for this event to assist our school fundraising efforts.

Our stalls will be held after lunch and families are once again welcome to join us.  The various stalls help us to raise money for those less fortunate than us and will be a fun way to finish the term.  A reminder that students wear free dress for a gold coin donation, but need to wear clothes suitable for the Fun Run.
