Holy Trinity Cookbook

When I was little my favourite thing to do with my Grandmother was baking and learning to cook and my children also love to do the same thing with their Grandmas today. Last year we purchased both Grandmas a copy of "Feast" as a Christmas gift and my boys have LOVED cooking with their Grandmas from the cook book, especially when they found one of Grandmas receipes already in the book. ~ Mrs Jud

With Christmas approaching, what a perfect time to purchase a cook book and let the Grandparents and the Grandkids lose in the kitchen, making scrumptious food and amazing memories.

The Holy Trinity Cookbook - 'Feast' is available to purchase on Qkr under 'P&F Fundraising'. Click here to purchase a copy on Qkr.

Feast is a beautifully bound coffee table book with professional photos and many amazing recipes from our school community.

Any purchase made will be given to your child to bring home.

Hint: Tick all your gift requirements off and purchase multiple copies for a discounted price.

Handing Over of Leadership - Year 5 Parents

As a community we will be celebrating a Handing Over of Leadership Ceremony on Monday 14th December at 2pm. Due to current COVID restrictions, things will be celebrated a little differently this year. As we need to remain within the current restrictions in the Church, unfortunately we are not able to have Year 5 parents to attend the Graduation Mass. Instead, we will be holding a separate event just for our Year 5 families, as we understand this is an important milestone for our Year 5 students!

Each student may have only 4 guests present at the the ceremony. We understand that this is challenging for families, however, we will record the handing over of leadership at the Graduation Mass for all families.

Please click here to complete the guest registration form. If you do not require all 4 seats please it blank.

At all times we would ask that guest maintain physical distancing and hygiene requirements. Prior to entering the church, guests must sign in.

The Day She Stole The Sun

The students of Cobargo P.S. had a tough start to the year.

When bushfires ripped through Cobargo in the early hours of the morning on New Year’s Eve, some lost houses, others lost family members and all have a story to tell about that day. 

Together, along with the help of their teacher Campbell Kerr, Cobargo Public’s Year Five and Six class have told their story – writing and illustrating a book titled ‘The Day She Stole the Sun.’   The_day_she_stole_the_sun.jpg

The book was started as part of Littlescribe’s literacy program for schools, which helps students build stronger writing skills and encourages every child to become an author. They are ready to share their story of the Cobargo bushfires. You can get involved by purchasing, reading and sharing their published book. 

$10 from every book purchased will go to the school to support the following resources, activities and key specialists.
