Hi Bloggers! Welcome to the last week of Term 3!
We hope your weekend was filled with many Specks of Gold.
COME READ WITH ME
We began our day with some reading. Some of us chose to read independently or to read with our friends.
CHARACTER STRENGTH – LEADERSHIP
This week our Character Strength focus is Leadership!
What does it mean to be a leader?
Ashvarn: Being first
Sampann: Good sportsmanship.
Jed: Leading others.
Rehat: I think it is when you are captain in a game so leadership means believing in yourself.
Rhoda: Being a leader you have to listen.
Deakyn: Leadership is leading a team which means taking care of a team.
Do you think you have to be the boss or captain of something to be a leader?
Sampann: No, you can by showing good sportsmanship.
Jed: Telling people what to do
Miss B: Encouraging others.
Jasmine: They were helping each other.
Ashvarn: They were lifting up and then another.
Today we engaged in Christian meditation and repeated the mantra ‘Maranatha’ in our own minds which, means ‘the Lord is coming’. After, we reflected on how we felt.
Holly: I feel calm.
Llana: I feel really calm and ready to learn
Jasmine: I feel relaxed.
Rehat: I felt like I left all of my problems and that God was coming to help me in my mind.
Akemjot: I feel happy.
Tcross: I feel very joyful, loved and calm
Ashvarn: I feel good.

You may have noticed as you enter our school that a large white path has bee painted, leading from the school gate to our early learning centre. This is going to be a large artwork by artist Kirsty Shadiac (www.artventure.com) with contributions from all children in our school.
This afternoon, we each drew an image which reflects our own history, hope or happiness.
