K-2 Mother's Day Liturgy and Mother's Day Picnic
Mothers, Grandmothers, Aunties and Special Women in our students lives celebrated Mother's Day with a beautiful Liturgy last Friday.
For the first time in 2 years, we were able to gather together in the Church.
The Secondary Musicians, under the direction of our wonderful Mr King, provided beautiful music for the Mother's Day Picnic, with blankets laid out and special food to share.
Thank you to all who attended. It was a truly special occasion.
Laudato Si' Week
Laudato Si’ Week, a celebration of Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si’ and a call to action for Catholics around the world, is being celebrated 16-24 May, 2022.
Here are some actions for your family to consider during the week as we support Cry of the Earth, Cry of the Poor.
Students in Stages 2-5 are invited to take part in some exciting Mini Vinnies Initiatives. These initiatives are designed so the students can have an opportunity to live our Catholic Principles and Values as Stewards of Gods Creation and reaching out to others through the Common Good, with a Preferential Option for the Poor.
With winter just around the corner we are back with our Crochet Crew on Thursday and Friday during lunchtime to work together to crochet rugs to donate to Vinnies this Winter.
Calling for donations of yarn (if you have a stash you know you will never get around to using) we will transform it!
The Crochet Crew meets during lunchtime on Wednesdays and Thursdays to crochet granny squares. These granny squares will be joined together, making unique and cosy rugs which we will donate to Vinnies for their winter appeal. No crochet experience is necessary and all material will be supplied. Crochet Crew is ideal for students in Stage 3 and above.
The Green Team have a focus on caring for our immediate environment. Green Team meet during lunch time, every Tuesday, and focus our energy and attention on one area of the school grounds, removing rubbish which may have blown into the garden beds. The Green Team is made up of students in Stage 2.
This fortnights focus was the garden beds near the quad and the gardens in front of the art and music buildings. What a FANTASTIC commitment to our environment these Green Teamers are making!
Waste Warriors was a response to the amount of rubbish we generate as a school. Most of this rubbish ends up in general landfill and a quick lunchtime audit identified that we could be recycling up to 95% of our waste! How exciting!!
An impassioned bunch of Stage 3 students are working together to make sure that our rubbish is sorted correctly and sent to be recycled.
Our aim is to have scrunchy, or soft, plastic collected and recycled - this is called RedCycle and you can recycle this at home by returning scrunchy plastics to Coles or Woolworths. We will take the 10c recyclable bottles, cans and containers and donate the money to Vinnies and hard plastics and paper will be recycled as well. Green waste will be sent to the Waste Management Facility for composting. Living as Stewards of Creation will help to ensure our environment thrives. The Green Team will have planning meetings during lunchtime on Monday and will follow a roster for the week.
