Bush Dancing, Friday 22 July

July 18, 2016 § Leave a comment

Hi Everyone,

What a cold Winter we are having here in Melbourne!

To warm us up at the next activity day, Therese will be teaching the children the basics of bush dancing. The younger children will learn a simple dance. The older children will be learning a few more complicated dances.

So please come dressed in boots and country style clothing to get into the spirit of the day. 

Looking forward to seeing you all,

Activity Day, Friday August 8th

Hi everyone,

The book day was so much fun and it provided real insights into our wonderful kids.  Thanks so much to everyone who participated, it was a lovely day.

This week, Stephanie is leading us in making  sacrifice beads.  If you search google or youtube you’ll find lots of information about this wonderful idea, which was much loved by St Therese when she was a young child.

Book Activity – Friday, 25 July, 2014

July 22, 2014 § Leave a comment


Hi Everyone,

The gardening day was such a lovely day we really must thank Tanya for her well organised, enjoyable, hands-on activity. Little things learnt on days such as this will be remembered long after our kids have grown up and taken their place in the world! It’s been almost 4 weeks and not only are our strawberry plants still doing well but also our snow peas are actually sprouting, yay!



Here we are, then, in the very middle of Winter and it’s likely that this week’s activity day will be entirely indoors. Well, since everyone knows that homeschoolers love to read, this week we’re asking you to bring along your favourite book, the one that just sweeps you away to another place. Be willing to tell us all about it and especially what makes it so fabulous to you. Is it the great battle scenes, the heroic rescue and escape, or the cheeky main character who is always in trouble? What is it? We all want to be impressed by your passion for your treasured book, so dress the part too. We hope everyone shares something from that wonderful, personal world that only a good book can create. It’s great fun to get “in-character” for these occasions.


I hope you can make it along – it should be a great day.
See you there,

Hi everyone,

Thanks to Kelly and Ben for taking the older kids to adoration, while Michelle and I were able to do the monstrance craft. It was a successful craft activity and a lovely day for all.

This Friday 27th June, Tanya is leading us in a “Planting day”.  The children will be preparing seeds and seedlings so please bring:

  • toilet rolls
  • trays in which the toilet rolls
      can be made to stand
  • egg cartons
  • aprons
plant in pot
Hope to see you there,

Where Am I?
