Welcome to our website.....

St. Pius is part of a witnessing Catholic community that includes the school community of staff, children and parents, the Parish and the wider community. Catholic values are enunciated and practised to create an atmosphere of love that provides children with a safe and secure environment of total acceptance where they can develop their spirituality, individuality and potential.

Catholic Education Office Bathurst

As a school we are accountable to this community and to the CEO in Bathurst who manage our school as part of a system of schools in the Bathurst Diocese. St. Pius X has a reputation as a “happy school”. This fact has been commented upon by parents, visiting professionals and other visitors to our school including casual staff.  We are very proud of this and work tirelessly to promote a sound and caring pastoral care program for our students and parents and a friendly and welcoming atmosphere of hospitality to all.  “Active happiness” should be the most distinctive characteristic of a Christian, Saint Paul teaches.

STEM, STEAM PROJECTS
We ended last week with a very clever exhibition of STEAM from Years 5 & 6. Thank you Mrs Single, Miss Isbester, Years 5 & 6 for your display on those colourful Animals and the detailed information on them and their habitat. You certainly played the role with those costumes. Congratulations Stage 3!!!

This week Years 3 & 4 are presenting their exhibition on Wednesday 20th from 12 to 1 p.m. They are presenting Australia's natural land forms. They have been learning about this in Geography. Their models are very Artistic and they certainly know their facts. Thank you Mrs Jones, Miss Giddings, Mrs Smith, Miss Trickey and Years 3 & 4 for your hard work and beautiful models.

Years 1 & 2 are presenting their STEM models on Thursday 21st starting construction from 9 a.m. This stage have been learning about the Push and Pull concept in Science. So they are going to design their future Push and Pull transport for the future. Who needs Electric or Driverless cars when we have clever Stage 1 people about to show us their designing skills. Parents of this stage have been invited to work with these children. Thank you to all who volunteered and Thank you to Mrs Carr, Mrs Taylor and Years 1 & 2 for the Super Models you are about to design. I can't wait for Thursday—brush up on your design skills Parents, Mrs Gavenlock and Mr Shaw.

STEM / STEAM has certainly been quite evident in our school in Terms 1, 2 , 3. No presentations in Term 4 as it's a very busy term.

SOCKTOBER October is World Mission Month
Next term we are going to 'Sock it to Poverty' by fundraising for Catholic Mission to help some of the most needy and vulnerable children in the world have better opportunities in life and a hope-filled future. We will be asking the students to donate a gold coin to participate in a 'Crazy Sock Day' where students will wear crazy socks all over their body. What is the most creative way they can wear socks? This day will occur on October 26th. During the month we will "Pass the Sock Around" as a continuing fundraiser throughout the school and ask people to place their donations in the sock.
