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.

Our “sacrifice beads” activity was indeed memorable, it went really well. We have had reports of children using them assiduously since then! Many blessings no doubt will fall upon their households. Stephanie is to be congratulated for the effort she put into running the day. Thanks, Steph!
This session will be geared to a very wide age-range so there will be something of interest to all ages.
We hope you all enjoy the day. I can’t wait!

Stephanie did a marvelous job introducing us to cupcake decorating using buttercream and fondant icing. Many of the colorful, delicious creations were gobbled up at morning tea but I hope some at least made it home to be appreciated by family. It was a lovely day.
This week, Michelle has asked Father John Corrigan to visit the group.
Hope to see you there,

The last Activity Day was very enjoyable, a big thank you to Natalia for her efforts!
The next Homeschool Activity Day will be held this Friday, 17th February at 10.00am.
Paula has arranged for Fr. Nicholas Dillon to come and visit our activity group. Fr. Dillon is the parish Priest of St Philip’s, Blackburn North. He celebrates Mass in both the Novus Ordo and the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite. Father is also an accomplished organist and has played in several countries throughout the world.
Fr. Dillon has kindly offered to talk with the children about sacrifice, a timely topic as we approach the penitential season of Lent. Father has also offered to hear confession, and enrol our children in the brown scapula. After the talk, the children will participate in a liturgical craft activity, meanwhile parents will have an opportunity to share morning tea and have a chat with him.
If you have any enquiries please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
We hope to see you all this Friday.
