I hope that your holiday was restful and that your second term is off to a flying start. The next activity will be this Friday April 22nd, it’s a show and tell day.
I have heard that a few of the children have already been preparing short dramatic / musical performances. There will be a keyboard set up if anyone needs it. The aim is to give each child an opportunity to experience speaking or performing in public, in a safe, friendly environment. Should be fun!
God bless, Christina

We must really thank Maria from Bunnings for another creative and memorable lesson! Kelly has put some lovely photos up so don’t forget to check them out.
This week’s activity day falls on the Feast of All Saints, 1 November.
Tanya is running this activity day and she asks that all the children “dress-up as a Saint”, but keep your Saint’s name a secret. We’ll play some games to try to work out who you are! The children (who are old enough) can research a few details about the life of their Saint, such as:
- When their Saint’s feast day is
- When their Saint lived (ie. birth and death)
- The country they were from
- Their Saint’s family background (ie. how many children in family, what parents were like)
- What did they do to help make them a Saint?
- What miracles were associated with their life?
- Did they start/help start an order?
- What are they a patron Saint for?
The children can also include a few symbols in their costumes to serve as a clue (eg. palm or cross to show they died a martyr, lily for purity or virginity etc.)
There will also be a prize for the best dressed Saint and for the Saint who no one can guess. Everyone who dresses up as a Saint will receive something!
It should a great way to together celebrate All Saints Day! I hope you can make it.

The next activity day is this Friday, 11 May, starting at 10:00am.
Thanks to everyone who came to the Origami day, it was a lot of fun.
And also thanks to Michelle for doing the pasta craft for the little ones. There are lots of nice photos in the gallery.
The next activity day is Show ‘n’ Tell. The children are invited to bring something they really like or they know a lot about.
For example children are welcome to recite a poem or speech, show and tell about their favourite book, game, movie or toy.
It gives our children a chance to practice their public speaking skills and have fun doing it, in front of a supportive audience.
It should be a lovely day, I hope you can come.
