Community News.......

Recently our Year Six students and their parents participated in a workshop evening in preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation. At the workshop, participants reflected on the Gifts of the Holy Spirit, how we see them in action through certain people we admire and how we can develop and use them in our own lives. Parents were asked to identify one of the gifts they could already see developing in their children. The children in turn named a gift they recognized in their parents.

On Monday 18th August the Preps along with some Year 5 students will be sharing with us one of the Short Listed Books ‘I’m a Dirty Dinosaur’. We will have a quick review of all the picture story books in preparation for our ‘vote for your favourite book’ activity. This will kick off our book week celebrations in style. The Year 3 Recorder class will also perform at this assembly.

The class awards will be held over until our parade day on Thursday. All are welcome to join us for the parade which will be held at 9.15 outside the hall if the weather is fine – inside if it is wet.

Thanks to our Year 5 students and Miss Parker for sharing their Sovereign Hill experience via a very entertaining and informative movie at last week’s assembly. Well done also to Nirmal who performed on the piano. Other students to perform in recent weeks include: Christian and Joel singing and guitar, Ben D on piano, Lizzie singing, Charlotte and Jasmine on guitar from Year 6. The girls—Zara, Emma, Kaysie, Scarlett and Willow on guitar from year 4, Kevin on piano and Cohan on guitar from year 3, Annamaria on piano from Prep. It is great to see these students sharing their skills and talents with us.

This year we are conducting a number of activities to celebrate book week. These has included a visit from Rosebud Library staff on August 5th our aim is to have all children become members of the library by the end of August. There will be a classroom focus on all the Short Listed Children’s Picture Story Books, a book fair in the library and a special day on August 21st, where children will come dressed as a character from a book, we will hold a parade, host mixed age house team activities and a book week quiz. It promises to be a lot of fun.

Our Year 6 team will compete in the Lions Club Quiz on the evening of Thursday 21st August at the Rosebud Primary School Hall commencing at 6:30pm. The Year Six students who are representing our school are Patrick, Charlie, Nirmal and the emergency is Jade. We wish them all the best. Everyone is welcome to go along and spectate. I'm sure the students would appreciate your support.
