During the last few weeks in Italian, the 3/4 students have been learning ‘La preghiera di Natale’ (an Italian Christmas prayer). The students worked well to say their prayers beautifully. I wish all the students and their families a very merry Christmas and a safe and happy holiday.

Buon natale, felice anno nuovo e buone vacanze a tutti!!

Monsters have taken over 3-4’s

This term the year 3 and 4 students have been learning how to sew.  They have worked very hard on making their very own monster pillows, with all of them adding their own unique and special touches.  We must agree that they all look fantastic! Well done 3-4’s

1-2 & 3-4 Transition

Over the past two weeks, the 1-2 and 3-4 students have been mixed up to help students who will be in 3-4 together next year get to know each other.  The students have loved working with students in 1-2 level, with many of the current year 2’s being super excited to come up to year 3 next year.

Excursion to the CBD and St. Patrick’s Cathedral

On Tuesday, the 3-4 students embarked on a Christmas journey through the CBD. First stop was Federation Square where they got to see the magical Christmas display. Walking through the city the students were amazed by what they saw, people walking to work, people shopping, construction of buildings, and the ring bells of the trams. At the Myer windows, the students couldn’t keep their eyes off the display.  With numerous cries of hunger, we stopped at parliament steps for morning tea. Looking over at the parents who were having a fantastic time taking selfies, sipping coffee and having a laugh.  We were greeted by Mrs. Weekes brother Fr Michael who came down and took us on a tour of St. Patrick’s Cathedral.  The children we dead silent listening to the information and stories Fr Michael was telling them as we walked through the Cathedral. All the students loved the excursion, with many of them wanting to go back for Christmas eve mass.
