May 1, 2017 § Leave a comment

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

Pancake Day 2017, Friday 24 February

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.

Remember to bring your own pencil!

This Friday Daniel is again running a catechetical activity – this time on the Fruits of the Holy Spirit. All he asks is that we each bring a pencil and a sharp memory!

This week we are also having a special gluten free morning tea. Please do your best to bring a plate or snack to share that does not contain gluten. Please mark your plate as “Gluten Free”.

Looking forward to seeing you there, God Bless,

First Activity for 2017, Friday 27th January (and a farewell message)

January 23, 2017 § Leave a comment

Hi everyone.

I hope your Christmas holidays have been joyful, abundant and prayerful.

One of our beautiful families is moving away from Melbourne and we must bid them a fond and forlorn farewell.  Tanya, thank you so much for your extraordinary support and for the kindness and love you and your children have shown everyone since Day One.

This will be our sixth year of regular activity days. We humbly thank Our Lady, St Michael and our patron saint, St Anne,  for the great blessings we have obtained.  May we continue to be protected and nurtured as we introduce our children to the wonders of the Faith and guide them in their exploration of our world!

For our first activity in 2017, this Friday one of our homeschool dads, Daniel, will teach us about the basics of  the Church’s liturgical colours:

Liturgical Colours!

For our activity day on Friday 27th January, we will be doing an activity with the children relating to the Church liturgical colours.  For the younger children there will be a colouring in activity so can you please bring with you your textas, crayons, pencils, etc and ensure that they have green, black, violet (purple), rose (pink), gold and red.

Thank you

– Daniel

I think it will be very engaging. I hope you can make it

Christina
