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

Book Week 2019

Book Week will be celebrated in week 5 this Term. On Friday 23rd of August, children are encouraged to dress up as their favourite book character. This year’s theme is ‘Reading is my secret power.’  Children can be as creative as they like, or simply add a superhero cape or mask to their school uniform. We look forward to celebrating this with our classes.

Thank you
