Indigenous games

We have been studying different Indigenous games like gorri, koolchee, buroinjin and kolap.

In groups students needed to research the rules of the game and the equipment required to play.

Today we tested our games and taught a different group how to play. It was a beautiful way to spend the afternoon in the sun with children engaging in games which involved lots of laughter, new skills and fun. IMG_5320.jpg

Moon Lantern Festival

Dear Parents/Caregivers,

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.

Thank you for your support
