We are very excited to let you know that we have invited Trevor Gallagher, a local elder, next Friday to assist us in our Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP). If you would like to know more about the RAP working team please see Bernadetta.
The Talent Show
This student led talent show was wonderfully organised. The judges were a great addition. We had magicians, lip synchers, singers, dancers and violinists. We even had a Taylor Swift impersonator. The audience were respectful and really enjoyed the show. A number of parents also enjoyed the show.
A message from Jackie (Art Therapy and Sewing Club)
“I’ve had the pleasure of spending time with the children this term and sharing my passion for all things art, craft, play and mindfulness.
I studied Transpersonal Art Therapy… which really just means that I learned to facilitate healing, happiness and growth from looking within. So, what have I been doing with your children…
My main aims this term have been to build confidence, create calm spaces, inspire creativity and facilitate conversations. I have listed in brief some of the activities and outcomes below, but please feel free to stop me for a chat if you would like to know more.
Sewing Club (Mondays) – This term the aim has been to make useful pieces that can be completed in one session and taken home and enjoyed. Completing things like pillows and scrunchies builds skills, but most importantly confidence and I “I made that!” excitement.
Art Therapy (Tuesdays) – We started off the term with weaving and finger knitting. The repetitive nature of these activities is very calming therefore, stimulates interesting conversation and promotes a safe space.
My aim is always to create a space where children from all year levels contribute, collaborate and support each other. I also encourage children to always have fun, art should be about the process not just the outcome.” - Jackie
