Don’t forget this Friday is dress-up day for book week, students are invited to dress up as their favourite book character if they would like to. Please note, this is not compulsory and it is not necessary for students to go and buy new costumes. Some of the best costumes are those students create themselves using what they already have at home!
The Moon Lantern Festival or Mid-Autumn Festival is a popular harvest festival celebrated when the moon is at its fullest and brightest.
At Holy Family we will be celebrating the Moon Lantern Festival on:
Friday 13 September
Students are invited to wear traditional or cultural clothing.
The 3JM and 2RG assembly will take place after recess at 11.00am and it will highlight cultural aspects of Moon Lantern Festival. Activities will include a lion dance, singing and sharing of cultural information. The winners of the Lantern Making Competition will also be announced at the assembly.
After assembly, students and families are invited back to their classrooms for a shared lunch.Students are encouraged to bring a plate of food that represents their culture.
As part of our work last week on Harmony Day, the students worked in groups to research traditional games from countries around the world. They had to find a game that was new to them and research the rules and origin of the game. They then had to write instructions for the game, collect equipment they would need and practice teaching the game to others. After lots of preparation, this afternoon we invited our buddies to join us to play these games. We had so much fun and we look forward to doing it again soon so our buddies get a chance to play all of the different games! We will share some photos of our fun filled afternoon with you tomorrow.
