Every November is ‘Fishvember‘ at Holy Cross Catholic School.
During the month of November our families get together, enjoy each other’s company and our wonderful local environment and go fishing.

The weather for Week 1 of Fishvember was fantastic and lots of our families were able to get out and about. Some great catches were made but, more importantly, some great family time happened! It’s not too late to join into Fishvember 2018 – we have around $2000 of prizes to share with our School Community just for joining into the fun.
Once again we were blessed with perfect weather for the second week of Fishvember. Some brilliant catches have been made over the first two weeks of our annual angling event. It’s so great to see families out and about together enjoying our amazing local environment and fitting in tie to go fishing before and after school, even in the middle of the week, as well as enjoying time together on the weekend. You will notice multiple generations of families in the photographs and also multiple families meeting up and fishing together as a group.
Week 3 of Fishvember saw some more amazing catches by our families. This is the last week of Fishvember coming up so it is your last chance to join into the fun and be part of the prize draw. Don’t forget to send in your photos from Fishvember as this is your entry into the draw.
We have our Fishvember Family sausage Sizzle and Prize Draw outside the School Hall this coming Friday (30 November 2018). The BBQ is from 5:30pm and the prize draw from 6:30-7:30pm.
We now have around $2500 of amazing prizes to share with our school families.
