Holy Family Catholic School have registered to be a part of the 2017 Earn and Learn Woolworths Sticker program. 

Start date: Wednesday 26th July through to 19th September 2017

Once you have filled a sticker sheet with 60 stickers (please only stick them in each  box and not randomly across the sheet as this won’t be accepted-SEE EXAMPLE BELOW), bring the sticker sheet into the front office and drop it into the box.

The Woolworths Earn and Learn program gives our school the chance to earn amazing school resources. Each $10 you spend in Woolworths = a sticker!

Thanks for supporting our school.

 

6/7 Camp

We are back after an adventure filled 3 days at Mylor. Have a look below at some snaps from our time there. With over a 1000 photos taken I can’t put them all up here, however, the students have access to them all and we have encouraged them to drag photos of themselves onto their laptop. All students should be applauded for the way they conducted themselves and challenged themselves over a range of activities and situations. Today we have been able to reflect on our time through the task of creating newspaper articles on our experiences.

Investigations Week 7

Kaitlyn: I learnt that if you put too much icing sugar in an icing mix that it would go sandy and grainy

Matios: I learnt that olive preservation is a lot of fun to make

Shiv: Dylan and I thought a bit of humour would be fun so we created an Illuminati with the nails and wool

Izzy: We learnt how to write a resume and how it will help me in the future

Joseph: I went to pick the black olives to preserve and we had to put them in hot water for 5 minutes, then we added salt and squeezed lemon juice into the bucket as well.

Mehtaab: I enjoyed creating my own resume

Francis: Whilst preserving olives, I learnt about the 3 olives that we have grown at school, Kalamata Olives, Spanish Olives and Verdale Olives

Adrian: I learnt how operate an Ozobot

Kiara: I enjoyed learning how to code the Ozobots and what I have to do to code them and how they respond to different colours

Pentecost

As June 4th 2017 was Pentecost, Students explored the significance of this event in the Catholic Church. They were able to make links and connects with the 7 gifts of the Holy Spirit with the 24 character strengths and how they show these gifts/examples in their own lives.

Health

In Health we have been exploring healthy relationships in our life.

Have a look at what the students brainstormed:

We discussed what a healthy relationship involves and how to spot unhealthy relationships and introduced them to term frenemy. We will continue to explore this topic and different strategies that can be used in such situations.

Money and Finance

Over the last few weeks students have busy planning, budgeting and organising dinner parties, exploring GST and looking at how to calculate percentage sales of 10%, 25% and 50% and how to compare prices to get the best value for money.

It has been great to see the students applying their skills in real life activities.
