Upcoming Parent Workshops with Mark LeMessurier

Posted by St Joseph's School Ottoway on 16 May 2019
Last year our school applied for a PIE Grant (Parent Initiatives in Education) and earlier this year we were informed that we were successful in obtaining the Grant. This has provided us with funds available to use for two Parent Workshops.
We have engaged the wonderful expertise of Mark LeMessurier to facilitate both Parent Workshops this year. The first workshop, "A Diagnosis of Autism Spectrum; How does that feel for Parents, What does it Mean, What Next?" will be held on Wednesday August 7 at 6:00pm in the School Hall. There is no cost to families.
The second workshop, "Real Ideas to Tame Ugly Behaviours" will be held on Wednesday September 18 at 6:00pm in the School Hall. Once again there is no cost to families.
Having worked with Mark LeMessurier in the past, I know Mark is engaging and entertaining in his presentations. He is realistic and understands the Autism Spectrum deeply. I encourage you to place both of these dates in your diaries.

Catholic Education Week

Posted by St Joseph's School Ottoway on 16 May 2019


Catholic Education Week will be held from Monday June 3 to Sunday June 9, 2019. The key message for schools in the Archdiocese of Adelaide and the Diocese of Port Pirie is;

"Where every child matters".


Catholic schools give students opportunities to:


learn about prayer in the Catholic Tradition


listen and respond to God


embrace the beauty and richness of prayer in the Catholic Tradition


develop skills for personal and communal prayer and Liturgy.


In our Catholic school communities, everyone is encouraged to set aside time for personal prayer and to pray together with others. As part of Catholic Education Week this year we are planning a Pop Up Prayer Space to be located in the courtyard each morning before school. Community members (parents, caregivers, grandparents, children and staff) will have the opportunity to write a prayer for someone or something they would like to prayer for and place it in our mobile prayer box. We will then offers these prayers to God as part of our Friday morning Communal Prayer.
