This week Rebecca will be making grass/sprout heads with the children. It sounds like a lot of fun especially because these will start growing quickly in this lovely spring weather. She asked me to request that if the mums have any old stockings then could they please bring them along. Also if anyone has a spare glue gun, that would come in handy too.
Hope to see you there.

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,

We’re embracing a multicultural theme for the next activity day. Tell us about a culture that’s captured your imagination. It doesn’t have to be your own.
Mums, for morning tea, please bring a plate representing your child’s chosen country. If the children would like to bring something to share about their chosen country, or dress in its national costume, it would certainly add to the day for everyone. Older children might like to prepare something brief, highlighting something special about that country:
- where is it?
- famous saints?
- famous historical figures?
Let’s eat, dress up and celebrate what’s beautiful in the world’s cultures!
Hope to see you there,

This week is national science week. We thought it would be a great idea if each family could bring something that is science related and give a short explanation about it. This could be an experiment they conducted, something they have made, observed or learnt about.
This should be very interesting day

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.

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.
