Nature Matters

Dear 3/4s,

Our group is working on improving our School Community.  We were wondering if you or your family and friends, would like to help with our workshop on planting nature in our school grounds.  We have not worked out the dates yet but it will be in term 4. We promise we will let you know when we are having the work shop. Our school used to look beautiful and we want it to look as beautiful as it was in the past.  We would love it if you or your family and friends could donate some time to help with the planting. Please leave a comment as we would love to hear what you think.

From Andie, Matthew, Alfie and Amielle

Stories of Jesus’ Life

As part of our unit of work about Community and Eucharist, many children who celebrated Eucharist said that the Eucharist means to live a life more like Jesus.

We named the things about Jesus that we admire. Jesus …

is a healer    is someone who forgives     shows kindness          

welcomes others     shows compassion      has empathy

treats others fairly     teaches us how to be a peacemaker    is a story-teller
