Congratulations to Kinder who are celebrating 100 days of school tomorrow!
From the beginning of August through to the end of May sun protection will be required for at least part or most of each day in Canberra. So, we will start implementing our school's sun protection policy and ask the students to wear their hats during outdoor play.

This year St Thomas More's had 2 students competing at the Interschools in Perisher - Lyndon Cook and Ruby Kenny both from year 3.
Both students competed in Division 5 (consisting of Year 3&4 students) - Alpine GS and Skier X with excellent results.
The weather and snow conditions were difficult, however both Lyndon and Ruby didn’t let this bother them and continued to compete with smiles on their faces and represented their school with pride.
The results are as follows:
- Ruby placed 49 overall with 63 competitors in her division and a combined time of 94.64
- Lyndon placed 50 overall with 59 competitors in his division and a combined time of 95.28
- Ruby placed 43 overall with 61 competitors in her division and a combined time of 69.64
- Lyndon placed 54 overall with 65 competitors in his division and a combined time of 73.25
