We began our special week by gathering as a school community to celebrate Mass and thank God for our many blessings. It was lovely to share this time with parents, grandparents, friends and family.
The reflection song led by “The Hummingbirds” reminded us of our ‘unwritten motto’ – ‘Never see a need without doing something about it.’ – and gave us a message to carry forward throughout the week, the year and into the future.
Following Mass, we were able to share morning tea and open classrooms with our families. It was a wonderful start to an important week for our community.
Thank you to our Kindergarten and Year 1 parents, who provided the beautiful morning tea. We enjoyed a visit from World of Maths, followed by an afternoon of Tabloid Sports – sock wrestling, hurdles and tug-o-war. Thursday was our Enrichment Day where students enjoyed a range of special activities – cooking, dance and drama, robotics, art and rare sports. That evening we shared a sausage sizzle together and then danced the night away at our Disco. $400 raised at the Disco and our recent “Red Day” was donated to the local bushfire appeal.
