COMMUNITY NEWS & EVENTS
YEAR 6 CAMP TO SOVEREIGN HILL
Our year six students have been enjoying a wonderful time at Sovereign Hill experiencing life in the 1850’s classroom and panning for gold. They have also attended a pantomime in the old theatre and experienced the world famous light and sound show – Blood on the Southern Cross. They have seen how the gold is melted and formed into bars, been bowling, seen many trades in action, made candles, toured an underground mine and had time to explore freely around the town of Sovereign Hill. Thank you to their teachers Milan Greco, Aley Allen and the support staff, Laura Trethowan and Amy Booker for their care of the students and for joining in the role-play along with the students. It is quite a unique experience for all. Note: Friday 18th May is a rest day for Year 6 students. Where parents are unable to arrange supervision for the day, students are welcome to attend school but will not be in their usual class. There are no electives this week.
What a fantastic morning we had last Thursday celebrating Mother’s Day. A big thanks to our Prep teachers and students who led us beautifully in prayer. It was wonderful to have mums and special guests visit classrooms after Mass – some mums were pampered and shown lots of love. Then it was time for the Fatima annual Mother’s Day Morning Tea. Well done to representatives from our senior classes for setting up and packing up the hall, welcoming and serving our guests and entertaining toddlers. If you haven’t already watched the Mother’s Day video put together by Mr Mac you can view it on our Facebook page or on YouTube by following this link, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nvd1I7--A5A&feature=youtu.be

Each class is learning to master a different skill. As with any new skill – practice makes perfect – and in the next week or so students will be able to purchase their own equipment so they can practice at home. In order to accommodate all families in the hall, there will be two circus performances on the night.
