Parish Visitors

Today our classroom was visited by a group of parish members and leaders as part of a special day for them here at Holy Family. With a focus on the diversity of our Catholic identity, some of our students had prepared and delivered a small presentation to the group. Congratulations to Osi, Lorraine, Ann Maria, Shanthana and Deepthi for their leadership and courage and their wonderful work.

Osi – Talked about her Buddhism faith and its comparison to Catholic faith and her involvement in our catholic community. She has also displayed a Venn diagram on the screen.

Lorraine – Shared family photos while discussing her connections with in the Parish community and her personal story of faith development.

Shanthana, Deepthi and Ann Maria – Performed a cultural dance representing their Indian heritage and religious beliefs as way of demonstrating how cultural diversity is embraced and celebrated here at Holy Family.

Year 6 Camp

Hi Families,

Last weeks camp for the year 6’s from HS, BM & HM to Victor Harbor was a great success. Credit to the students for their enthusiasm, positive attitudes, manners and general behaviour. This was not only noticed by the teachers attending, but campsite staff as well. A big congratulations to all students who attended. It was a great chance to work, learn, play, eat and socialise in a relaxed and fun setting together.

We took many photos whilst on camp – too many to upload them all. We are compiling a list of photos on the shared drive here at school so that students can copy them onto their laptops to share with you at home.

Here a just a couple…

Beach-combing Investigation

last week on the year 6 camp the students collected many interesting things when we visited Goolwa beach. These specimens were brought back to school and today used in our learning. The budding scientists worked in pairs to observe, describe, investigate, name, classify, and record as much as they could about the many interesting things that have been washed up onto this South Australian beach. Items ranged from eggs casings, fossilised rocks to sea sponges and fibre balls. This learning will become part of a display for others to use in our schools Mudla.
