It’s Carnevale time!!!

It’s Carnevale time!!!

This term all grades have been learning about Carnevale time in Italy. The Preps & 1/2 classes have been learning about Arlecchino and his costume of many colours, the 3/4 classes have been learning an Italian tarantella dance and the 5/6 students have been learning about La Commedia dell’Arte – the Comedy of the Arts and creating ‘lazzi’ – which are short comedy skits. The students have been creating their ‘lazzi’ to music.

We are looking forward to our Carnevale themed Italian day and Holy Trinity Feast Day celebrations on Friday 9th June.

Mother’s Day Breakfast

Mother’s Day Breakfast

Mothers were treated to a sumptuous  breakfast in the hall this morning, which was decorated beautifully with fresh flowers, fairy lights and candles. Children were also provided with a smorgasbord of toast, fruit and cereal.

Dedicated staff of Holy Trinity were up early in order to provide the well deserving mums their opportunity to be waited on.

By the look of all the smiling faces everyone enjoyed their ” cuppa and danish”. The sound of the chatter was a good sign the community had come together and were ready to share a few stories.

A huge thank you to all involved for making such an effort in celebrating “Our mums.”

Invasion at HT & St. Mary’s – the Ozobots Have Arrived!

Invasion at HT & St. Mary’s – the Ozobots Have Arrived!

The 5/6 students began learning about our new Ozobots which we have purchased thanks to a generous donation from our Parents Association. An Ozobot is a small robot that can be programmed to do different actions such as go faster, turn left or change colour according to the commands (or codes) the user gives them.

Here is a picture of an Ozobot.

Today the students drew coloured lines into codes that they hoped moved the Ozobots in a certain ways.

Here is the 5/6 students hard at work.

Many groups had success with their Ozobots and more importantly learnt lots of new skills that they will use in future lessons.

Here is one successful attempt.
