VISIT FROM IBU HANI NASANTARI
Ibu Hani Nasantari visited us last week. Hani has set up a sister school for us in Lombok Indonesia. We are looking forward to developing this partnership in 2015 with a particular focus on our respective marine environments. As a tuning in exercise for this our Year 3 students will attend an excursion to The Dolphin Research Institute in Hastings on Friday 5th December. The students will also visit St Josephs' Crib Point and hear a little about their sister school partnership and their work as mangrove warriors in Western Port Bay. Further information will come via the classroom. In this picture Monica is presenting Hani with some Aboriginal Clapping Sticks for our sister school.
YEAR 5 LEADERSHIP VISIT
The Year 5 leadership day at St Macartan's last week was a great success. The students made many new friends from St Josephs, St Macartans and St Thomas More. They joined in games and activities, which were designed to foster an understanding of leadership. This work is being further enhanced each Friday with a leadership course facilitated by Marita O'Sullivan and Aley Parker. Luke Parker spoke to all students on the day and imparted some great words of wisdom including these insights which have relevance well beyond the game of football.

Congratulations to Jay who recently finished tied for 1st place in the Victorian Primary Schools Regional Golf Final. Jay played at Sandhurst Golf Club and came up against some of the best primary school golf players in the region. Jay finished with a score of 39 'off the stick' for 9 holes! What a fantastic effort. Jay will now compete at Kooringal, which is near Altona, to the west of Melbourne on December the 1st. We wish him all the very best as he competes at the Victorian Primary Schools State Final.
