Sacred Heart Activity Day, Friday June 30th

June 23, 2017 § Leave a comment

Hi Everyone,

This week we are again welcoming the Sisters from the Alliance of the Two Hearts Apostolate.  The activity for the day will have a focus on the Sacred Heart of Jesus because in the liturgical calendar of the Catholic Church, the entire month of June is dedicated to this devotion.   The children always have a great time when the sisters visit, so this week should be a lot of fun.

 

Hope to see you there,

Christina

Looking forward to seeing you there, God Bless,

Hi everyone,

This week Kelly will be running a pottery day. The children will be exploring air dry clay. They will have a choice of finished objects to make, take home, dry and decorate. The clay used in this activity is no mess so that will be a bonus.

It looks like the car park is still under contruction.  You are most welcome to bring some indoor activities to keep your children occupied after the activity. Alternatively you may wish to take your children to the nearby park.

Looking forward to seeing you there, God Bless,

Hi Everyone,

Thank you, Georgette, for running the candle-making day. I think the children were so proud of the beautiful candles that they made and I’m sure the mums were happy to receive them on Mother’s day.

This week we are honouring Our Blessed  Mother by having a May Crowning, I hope you can make it.

 

 

 

 

God Bless,

Hi everyone,

This week  Georgette will be running a candle making day. What a lovely gift idea for Mothers day. Even though she has already taken orders,  she still has a few jars remaining, so contact her if you want to do the activity.

 

I can’t wait for this one.

Looking forward to seeing you there, God Bless,

Curriculum materials display (Seton), Friday April 21

April 17, 2017 § Leave a comment

Happy Easter everyone!  A big thanks to Celia and Bernadette for running the last activity. The intricacy of the detail in the stain glass windows we made, and the thoroughness of preparation that they put in to make the activity day run smoothly was remarkable.

For next Friday’s activity day, Kelly has again invited the Australian distributor for the ‘Seton Home Study School’ curriculum, to show us a selection of Seton materials. We will also be given a talk by a lady who would like to share her phonics program with us.

Reminder: There will be council work going on in the hall’s carpark. This work will be carried out for a few weeks while we are at the hall.  The children will not be permitted to play out side due to safety issues. You are quite welcome to bring some indoor activities to keep your children occupied. Alternatively you may wish to take your children to the nearby park.

Looking forward to seeing you all there.

God Bless,

Christina

Stained glass window craft activity, Friday March 24th

March 20, 2017 § Leave a comment

Hi Everyone,

The next activity will be a stained-glass-window craft with the Lenten theme, “Waiting for the Risen Christ“.  The activity will be run by Celia and her daughter, Bernadette.

The children will cut designs out of black card, or choose a ready-made design (more suited to younger children) and fill in the empty spaces with the beautiful glowing colours of stained-glass windows.  Please bring a glue stick and scissors.  Keep in mind that sharp scissors are necessary, so each design should be cut by an adult or older child.

As we move to Laetare Sunday (the 4th Sunday of Lent) our windows will serve to remind us of the rapidly ending period of penance!

BYO glue stick and scissors!

 

I hope you can join us.

God bless, Christina
