Trash and Treasure activity 2017, Friday November 17

November 12, 2017 § Leave a comment

Hi everyone,

This week Kelly has come up with the great idea that we hold a trash and treasure market, with all proceeds going to the charity, Mary’s Meals.

 

Trash and Treasure: 100% goes to Mary’s Meals.

 

Everyone could bring a number of items they no longer want, put a fair price on them and sit them on a table. We will leave a container on each table and people can buy the items, placing the money in the container. So essentially, we are donating unwanted goods. If an item doesn’t sell the owner just takes it home again.  What a great way to declutter before Christmas, score yourself a bargain and help people in need!

We will also organise a couple of games for the kids afterwards, if time permits.

This is certainly something we’ve never done before.

Looking forward to seeing you there,

Christina.

Composting & worm farming activity – Friday, 22nd September, 2017

September 16, 2017 § Leave a comment

Hi Everyone,

This week, John and Sam will give us a presentation on composting and worm farming.  If you want any of your children to start their own worm farm then please bring an empty ice cream container.  The worms and bedding for the worms will be provided, long with some handouts on care of worms and how to compost.

I hope you can make it along – it should be a great day.
See you there,

Christina

Board games day, July 28, 2017

Hi everyone,

The weather has been so cold lately that this week we  have decided to run a board games day. We all know how much homeschoolers like chess but I’m sure there are other  board games they like too! Bring your own board game and have some fun with your friends.

 

 

 

I hope to see you there.

God Bless,
Christina

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

Hi everyone,

We’d like to give a big thanks to Daniel for running two activities in a row, they were both informative and fun.

Shrove Tuesday (Pancake Day)

This week Georgette, Frances and Michelle will be making pancakes for Shrove Tuesday (Pancake Day) which is celebrated on the 28th February this year. If you wish to participate in the activity, please bring along your own pancake batter, toppings, plates, and forks. We will cook them together in the hall. If anyone has a spare electric fry pan they can bring, that would be a great help. There will be a pan specifically for those with allergies. So no need to bring morning tea, I think the pancakes will be enough.

Looking forward to seeing you there,

Christina.
