May Crowning of Our Lady, Friday May 19th

May 14, 2017 § Leave a comment

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,

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

An Introduction to Medieval Europe, Friday 19 August

August 15, 2016 § Leave a comment

Hi Everyone,

Thanks to Georgette for running a successful arts and crafts day!

This Friday, we will be focusing on how things were different in the medieval time as compared to modern times: in particular we will compare the food, clothes, and lifestyle. We will host a young man whose passion is all things medieval, and it promises to be a fascinating morning, bringing history to life!

Looking forward to seeing you there.

God Bless,
