Santa is coming….so is Carols night.

Well he is in 4BH!

Today we did a guided drawing tutorial, we all loved our results.


Looking forward to seeing everyone in the Christmas spirit on Friday night at carols.


At this stage year 4 BHAE will be performing at approx 7:20. We are asking all students to be at school no later than 7pm as the event often runs ahead of schedule. There is BBQ dinner from 5:45 until carols begin.

Students will need to listen for their class being called to meet at the outside OSHC room door.

Assembly Week 7 4BH

I could not be more proud of these wonderful humans today.

From their fabulous acting, reading, dancing, prop making, present throwing, robot coding, singing  and box bursting they all did themselves proud.

Thanks to all of the parents that came along to share in our festive assembly. We had a wonderful time preparing with our buddies and it was a lovely way to wind up the term.


Here are a few photos but they really do not do it justice.



ICT reminder:

A reminder to those students who are needing to hand in their laptops on Monday to be either returned or upgraded that they need to back up any work they wish to keep on a USB and bring their laptop and charger on Monday.

Have a safe and happy weekend.

Library Week 5

The children were very excited today to begin reading some festive stories. Today’s book was Little Robin Red Vest.

One frosty evening, a week before Christmas, Little Robin washes and irons seven warm vests for the chilly nights to come. As the days go by, he comes across lots of shivering animals and kindly offers them his vests to wear. But – oh no! – on Christmas Eve, Little Robin is cold and alone with no vests left! That is, until a special someone arrives to reward his kindness . . .


Here are some of the reflections about the book:

What do we mean by Christmas spirit?


Grace: helping people

Yafet: Sharing and giving

Destiny: giving back to people

Ben: Sharing love and kindness

Miriam: caring for others

Jashandeep: Sharing your things with other people

Becky: Sharing your love

Vince: Believe in stuff and liking it.

Sarah: Sharing joy with others

Akur: giving and not taking

Mahi: Helping others when they need

Melvina: When you enjoy your day

Cecilia: Being happy around your family

Axel: wanting to help people and giving gifts

Jakob: When you feel happy because you are being kind to others

Marli: Give to others and it makes you a happy person

Denzel: When you share stuff with other people

Reyven: Sharing your love

David: When you help others

Angelina: Its about making other people happy

Ai: Sharing kindness with other people

Iverson: Helping people

Alessandra: caring for people

Georgiana: Care for people

Duy Hung: you and everyone are happy



4BH Assembly


The 4BH assembly in week 7 has a Christmas theme. If possible we are asking the children to wear Christmas themed clothing. Red/Green/Gold t-shirt, Christmas dress or T-shirt, reindeer ears, elf hat, Santa hat etc. We are also asking for as many children as possible to bring a pair of sunglasses to add impact to one of our routines.

We have been having a great time working with our buddies preparing for this festive celebration.

Sun Safety – Excursion/Sleepover

Hi Parents,

With the daily UV level on the rise we are insisting that students have a sun safe hat for our excursion day tomorrow. If they do not currently have a Holy Family hat they are able to bring an alternative sun safe hat (wide brim, legionaires hat, no caps).


Please double check the list of requirements for sleepover. We are asking children to bring re usable plates and cutlery. As the hall floor is a concrete base with no underlay we strongly encourage they bring a sleeping mat/inflatable mattress. Please let us know if you are unable to provide this and we will endeavour to find an alternative for your child to sleep on.


In kindness,


Beth Hawkes




Hi Parents,

Here is a copy of the sleepover details. Unfortunately the double sided note means the list needed to be returned with the permission form.

Students will need to bring to the sleepover;

  • Something to sleep on, e.g. an already blown-up mattress, camp bed or yoga mat;
  • Some bedding or sleeping bag and pillow;
  • PJ’s, teddy, slippers or thongs;
  • Toiletries (toothbrush/toothpaste/hairbrush/hair ties).
  • Reusable plastic plate, bowl and spoon to use and take home.
  • Refillable drink bottle

Please let us know asap if your child has any dietary requirements.


Thank you

Beth Hawkes

Week 1 Thursday


It’s been a busy week as we prepare for the Spring Fair. Thankyou for everyone’s donations of plants and gold coins.


Please please let us know if you can spare a little time on Sunday at the fair to help out on a stall. These community events are only successful as a result of wonderful people who volunteer their time. Many hands make light work.

A reminder that ride passes are still available from the front office and are excellent value.


Today in library we read a book called the Little Stowaway.

France. Winter. 1918. The First World War is over. An brave and determined little French orphan, Honore, wanders through the snow, cold and hungry and lost. When he stumbles on the Australian Flying Corps and meets airman, Tim Tovell, his life is changed forever. This is a story of a remarkable little stowaway and his journey to his new home in Australia


Here are some questions the children had after we had read.

Vince: were the photos in the book real

Destiny: how would the boy in the oat sack survive , could he breath

Miriam: if the photos were real, how old are they?

Benjamin: why was Australia in France during world war one

Cecili: did the  child and Tim know about the book?

Angelina: How did his family die?

Jashandeep: How long did it take for him to get to Australia

Ethan: How did he peel the orange

Mahi: How did the little boy not get caught?

Yafet: Why did he have to go in the bag?

Melvina: How did he fit inside the bag?

Becky: How old was the boy?

Rachael: How did the boy trust the man when he had no idea who he was?

Reyven: What was the boys name?

Marli: How did people find out about the oat bag?

Aaliyah: Why did they have to go on a ship and not a plane?




This week in Numeracy we have been investigating 2D and 3D shape as well as introducing angles. Today the students constructed their own angle comparison tool. Our goal is to classify and sort angles according to their size relative to a 90degree (right) angle.

Here are some photos of us locating and identifying angles in the classroom:


This term we are looking forward to learning more about the Sphero robots. At the moment we are familiarising ourselves with the robots and working towards using command blocks to code their actions.

Here are a few pics


A reminder that tomorrow is a pupil free day.


See you on Sunday at the Spring Fair.


In Kindness,

Mrs Hawkes and Mr Elder


Hi Everyone,


A reminder that tomorrow is a casual day and we are asking for donations of plants, pots or soil.

Friday is a pupil free day in preparation for our Spring Fair on Sunday.

Looking forward to seeing you all there.

Please let us know if you are able to volunteer any time to help us at the fair.


Unlimited ride wrist bands are also for sale via the office. These will not be for sale on the day of the fair so you need to buy them by Thursday.
