Fathers Day Breakfast

The hall was alive with laughter, smiling faces, and delicious food on Friday the 2nd of September. Our Dads tucked into a hot breakfast prepared generously by the parents of our 3/4 students. All of the students practised their waitering skills, carrying plates piled high with egg, bacon and hash browns, steaming coffee, and fresh orange juice. Our Dads enjoyed meeting each other and sharing a meal together to celebrate Fathers Day. We

thank all of the Mums who helped out on the day – it was a great success!IMG_0563IMG_0568 IMG_0564IMG_0572 IMG_0571IMG_0570

How is your dad special to you?

How do you celebrate Fathers Day with your family?

Kitchen Garden Delights

Our School Kitchen Garden is full of delicious green vegetables after so much rain, and also some sunny days.

Today we harvested silver beet, turnips, celery, broccoli, spring onions and carrot to make some tasty pasties.

We had lots of fun cutting and grating the vegetables, and making the pastry into interesting shapes.

What are some of your favourite recipes to cook at home?  Why is it important to include lots of vegetables in your diet?


Looking for Parent Helpers

The 3/4 Students are currently investigating a range of Science topics and we are looking for parents/grandparents/family members that may have expertise or knowledge in a certain area.

Some of the areas are:

– The human body and body systems

– Earth Sciences and the environment

– Digestion

– Healthy choices/food

– Gravity/forces

We would love to arrange a time for you to come in to the 3/4 area to share your knowledge with the kids.

Please contact one of the teachers if you would like to help out.  With Thanks, The 3/4 team

First Eucharist

CA5FJHCWA reminder that the Presentation Mass for children who will be celebrating the Sacrament of Eucharist is on this weekend. For most families, we expect that you will bring your child to present themselves as a commitment to the Eucharist program at the 8:45 Mass on Sunday morning, 17th July at St Therese Church.

The children will be making a commitment statement and handing out their personal profile card to one of the parishioners during the Mass as part of the celebration.

It is great to hear that families who are unable to attend on Sunday morning at St Therese are committing to attend on Saturday night at Anglesea.

Finally, a reminder for those who haven’t sent their preference of dates for the Eucharist celebration (either the 21st or 28th of August) could you please email your preferred date to Peter Caddy in the next couple of days. Please check the list below to ensure that your child’s name has been added to the list.
