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

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,

Final activity for 2016, Friday 9th December – Las Posadas!

December 6, 2016 § Leave a comment

Hi everyone.

This year has been very busy, our group has grown and our children have all shown much talent, enthusiasm and discipline in their approach to their homeschool work. Christmas and the end of the school year is almost upon us already!  The concert was a revelation and we very much thank Tanya for being such an expert and gracious MC, as well as all the performers for helping to make the day a big success.

For our final activity day for 2016, Therese will help us to keep up our traditional Mexican Advent celebration, “Las Posadas”.  If you recall from previous years we’ll start by singing a traditional carol (translated), followed by praying the rosary together, then feasting!

Fra Angelico adoring angel detail

GLORIA IN EXCELSIS DEO!
Las Posadas: Let us join the angels, the shepherds, the inn-keepers, wise men and saints, to invite the Holy Family into our homes and hearts this Christmas.

It’s all to help us invite the Holy Family into our homes and hearts, so can everyone please along your Rosary beads and a plate to share.

Finally, thank you to each of you, for helping to make each activity day a time  where we can all relax & enjoy the company of like-minded mothers, where our children can enjoy informal activities, build lasting friendships and be introduced to new ideas and new opportunities to grow in holiness, wisdom and knowledge.  It has been a year of great blessings.

I hope you can make it to our final activity day, and I hope that Christmas brings you and yours great joy.

Hi everyone,

Everyone really enjoyed the book character day.  I don’t think we’ll ever forget the tornado!  Thank you for such a fantastic effort from all.

Please bring any bits of yarn you have – it doesn’t matter what it is!

This Friday we will be making our own weaving looms from cardboard and learning how to weave on them. Kelly asks that we each bring whatever bits of yarn we have available. Everyone will get to take home their own loom; it sounds like we’re going to have lots of creative fun this week!

Looking forward to seeing you there, God Bless,
