Last Thursday all students attended the Assumption Mass with Fr Namora and the readings were led by our Year 4 students. It was a beautiful celebration and Fr Namora congratulated all students on their reverent and respectful behaviour throughout.

These daily questions have been developed to help families practise the GEM principles. They are a great way to facilitate positive conversations as your family shares a meal either in the morning, afternoon or evening or at a time that works best.
Check out some great GEM questions here.

In Drama this term, Year 4/5/6 have been involved in a number of Drama activities that have allowed them to act out a range of varying scenarios and improve their confidence. This week we have been using finger puppets to create a puppet show which we presented to the rest of the class on Friday. Students were challenged to make the rest of the class laugh and using a nice, clear voice during their presentations.
Year 4/5/6 earned their gold token reward last week and as their reward, students chose to dress in their ‘craziest’ outfits and do their hair in the craziest way they could think of. As part of the reward they watched the movie Brother Bear.
Our Breakfast Top Up is going well. Sometimes it is a long time from breakfast to start of school. Students enjoy sitting around the tables for a catch up in the morning even if they don't have something to eat.
'Breakfast Top Up' is every Tuesday and Thursday morning 8.35 - 9.00am.
