Natale at HT – Christmas at HT filming in week 10

Natale at HT – Christmas at HT filming in week 10

Dear parents 

In light of our school production being cancelled I thought that it would be great if the students could still participate in a performance. This term the students have been working on a christmas performance that will be filmed and streamed to families. Students are encouraged to come to school on their designated filming day dressed up in Christmas colours or costume. Students can either come to school dressed in their chosen outfit or if they prefer they can wear their school uniform and bring their items in a clearly marked bag to change into at their designated class filming time. It would be preferred if students wear school shoes or runners as well. There is no need to buy anything new for the filming – whatever you already have at home is perfectly fine. For example: xmas tshirt, red top, green top, christmas headband, christmas hat etc… Some students have discussed with me that they already have a Christmas costume for example: Christmas onesies, Elf costume, Santa costume, reindeer costume, angel costume etc.. so they are more than welcome to wear these.

Each grade will be assigned a time to be filmed throughout the day. If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me via email – jformichelli@htws.catholic.edu.au

Looking forward to showcasing the students Christmas performances!

Friendship Groups

Friendship Groups

Today (Friday November 20) all the students participated in Friendship Groups for the first time since March. Each Friendship Group consists of a mixture of students from Prep to Year 6. Together each group learns about a range of different topics centred around wellbeing as well as doing lots of fun activities. Today’s session involved learning about bullying and was in recognition of the National Day of Anti Bullying and Violence which took place when during remote learning.  After learning about these themes each group got the opportunity to play with their frisbees on the oval and take them home to play with after this session.

Here are a few photos of our afternoon activities ……

Minecraft Club

Minecraft Club

Ever since our Year 6 Digitech leaders began their leadership roles they have really wanted to organise a Minecraft Club for the students in our school. Unfortunately, due to COVID we have been unable to conduct our Minecraft Club until this week.

Some students in Years 2, 3 and 4 have been given the opportunity to participate in our Minecraft Club where they are learning to use a variety of the tools and skills used in this program. This club takes place during lunchtimes on Wednesdays and Fridays. Our Minecraft Club will continue until the end of the year.

Next year we are hoping to continue our Minecraft Club with our new Digitech leaders as well as to begin a Minecraft Club with a new set of students.

A big thank you to our Year 6 Digitech leaders for all of their efforts in helping to get this club up and running for our students.

Here are a few of our students in action during a recent Minecraft Club session.
