Today the school remembered the events that took place during Holy Week. Students in Years 3-6 gave up their time to take part in the Holy Week Play. They had to practise at lunch times with Mrs Casinelli and the RE leaders. It was a really special time and everyone was very respectful and reverent. Here is some photos of this special event.
In the lead up to the Easter season, the Grade 3/4s have been learning about the importance of Palm Sunday, Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday as part of the Easter Story. We reflected on Christ’s actions in the lead up to his crucifixion and also considered what Jesus’s resurrection means for us. We enjoyed watching the Holy Week Reflection drama presented to the whole school by various students. We thank Mrs Cascianelli for organising this special learning experience for us as well as all the students involved. We have also prepared our Easter baskets ready for the Easter Bunny to hop into our rooms!
We wish you all a safe and blessed Easter break. We look forward to learning lots again next term!
The Grade 5/6 ‘Students as Artists in Schools’ group is almost ready to reveal the amazing banner they have designed and painted for ‘The Creative Space’. I can’t wait to hang it outside the art room, it looks incredible .
Year 1/2s have been doing some cute Easter craft activities this week.
Happy Easter everyone!
In celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, the RE and school leaders went to St. Patrick’s Cathedral in the city. It was a fun day and it was a great experience to hear and see a mass done so traditionally.
Sienna- I found it interesting that we sang every response. But my favourite was seeing the huge musical organ. I also liked seeing our Archbishop Denis Hart, he seems really friendly.
Ellise- I enjoyed it when I first walked in and saw all the artwork but my favourite was seeing the marble altar and tiles, it had the perfect amount of pink.
James- I liked the design and actual architecture of the cathedral. It took many, many years to build starting way back in 1858. It is a huge building with super high ceiling arches. I found the Latin writing really interesting and I wondered what it meant. There was also a great art piece towards the front of the altar of Mary and Jesus made from gold.
Patrick- I liked the stained glass windows at the entrance of the cathedral. It was huge and colourful.
Jayden- I found the outfit of Archbishop Denis Hart interesting, I thought the crook looked really cool.
I also really liked the lectern, it looked like it was an eagle and seemed to be made out of gold.
Last weekend I attended the Catholic Education Visual Arts Exhibition 2018 on Saturday and the Knox Council Community Art Show on Sunday. Work from four of our students was displayed at each Art Show. It was wonderful to see the work from other students from schools throughout the State and the local community.
I am very pleased to share the news that Tina Siu (Grade 6 2017) won first place for her pastel drawing in the Grade Five and Six section at the Knox Art Show. Congratulations Tina 👍

On Wednesday the 21st of March the whole school participated in a First Aid Day. The sessions involved us learning about helping other’s with their health though calling triple 0 in an emergency, putting an injured person in the recovery position and doing chest compressions if they are seriously hurt. We were lucky enough to participate in this day because we are learning about our wellbeing and looking after our bodies. This is some of the students in action …….
Some people may have missed this post from Lizzie of the District Swimming from a couple of weeks ago. Here it is again with a few new photos added. We will be adding a post about our Regional Swimming Competition to our school blog this week as well.
