Yesterday, six students from years five and six were chosen to build a tower crane model. This model consists of three lego kits and over forty steps to complete. It stood roughly 0.6 meters tall and took an hour and a half to construct. We were lucky enough to have some special Lego Engineer teachers come in to work with us whilst we built this model which we were very thankful of because it was quite difficult to build.
Overall it was an enjoyable challenge working with people that are from different year levels.
Here are some pictures and videos of our models including a time lapse of the building process.

Well what can I say? What an amazing evening! The Prep nativity was fantastic and the singing was fabulous! It was great to see so many people there to watch the students perform. Check out some of the photos below:
Wishing all Holy Trinity and St Mary’s families Buon Natale! Merry Christmas!

Tonight (10th December) Holy Trinity and St. Mary’s will be gathering together to perform some Christmas carols. Each class will perform their own carol and the whole school will perform two songs. We have been practicing these during Italian sessions and eating times throughout this term.
Here were the classes practising this morning ……
Here is a quick snippet of a carol for tonight ….. IMG_2525
Yesterday (6 December) all of the Preps went to their first Camp at Holy Trinity. The Preps got to do lots of different activities but some of the highlights included toasting marshmallows, making cubby houses and going on a nature walk. I think one of the best parts of the day was that they did not have to do ‘work’ for the day.
Overall, the Preps had lots of fun at camp and many said it was one of the best days they have ever had.
On the 25th of November the Year 5’s participated in a Leadership Day to prepare to be a leader for 2020. The first part of the day was a leadership speech by Mr Downie where we learnt about some of the “greatest leaders in history” including Jesus. After recess we worked on our leadership letters where we wrote about which leadership roles we would like to be next year. The Year 5’s were lucky enough to have burgers for lunch. In the afternoon we did some leadership activities and finished off a great day with eating icy poles before we left school.
Overall, the Year 5’s are really looking forward to being the leaders of the school in 2020.
*One thing that we learnt about was that next year our school will be opening up the time capsule that was buried 25 years ago.

On Thursday the 28th of November Ashley, Lara and Blake.D held a 4 square competition to raise money for the kids in the School of the Air. Ash wanted to do the fundraiser for the school of the air because there are lots of kids that are a part of the school but they don’t get to go to a physical school and experience all the fun things we get to do. Ash and Lara were the first people to do a fundraiser for the school of the air. The competition ended up raising $87 in total which is a lot of money that can be used to help buy new learning resources for these kids.
The final winners were Bradley 1st place, Macca 2nd place and Tej 3rd place. Spencer earned the MVP (Most Valuable Player during the competition and Cara got an award for Team player.
Well done to Ashley, Lara and Blake D for all of your hard work with organising this competition (even organising some trophies).
