Term 3 in Review

​​SJV is built upon the charism of the Presentation Sisters whose founder, Nano Nagle, followed in the footsteps of Jesus and dreamt that everyone would have the opportunity to be included and participate fully in life. Students at SJV are certainly given lots of opportunity to participate in many different activities. As we conclude Term 3, it is important to stop and reflect on all of the exciting activities our students have been involved in that make our school such a rich, wonderful place of learning:

  • Years 3-6 Running Club
  • Sports Aerobics
  • P-2 Fun Fitness Friday
  • Maths Olympiad Contests
  • School Choir
  • Touch Football training
  • Contemporary Band
  • Opti-Minds Competition
  • Fr Dantus visiting classrooms
  • Classes attending Parish Mass
  • Years 2-6 Athletics Carnival
  • Excursions & Incursions
  • Yr 5 & 6 Formation Day
  • AFL Auskick Program
  • Writing workshops & Author visits
  • ICAS competitions
  • Book Week activities
  • Father’s Day Stall & Picnic
  • 100 Days of Prep Celebration

  • Roar Active Program Years 2-4
  • Raw Art Lessons
  • Year 4 Camp
  • Prep & Year 1 Athletics Carnival
  • Market Day Years 5 & 6

Many of these events happen due to the generosity of time and organisation of our staff who willingly serve our community above and beyond their normal duties. The lantern carried by Nano Nagle as she served the people of Cork is proudly carried on in the work of our staff and I thank them for their service to our community in nurturing every child’s intellectual, physical, emotional, social, moral and spiritual growth. I would also like to thank the many parents who generously offer their support for our school. The partnership between home and school is a valuable strength of our school community.
