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 29 September. Students are invited to wear traditional or red clothing.
The R/1JM and 5/6PA assembly will take place after recess at 11.30am 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. All families and members of the community are welcome to attend.
This Friday (8th September) will be a casual clothes day for students. We ask that if students choose to wear casual clothes that they bring in a Gold Coin Donation which will be a contribution towards the Spring Fair to be held in Term 4.
Back when the days were sunnier last week some students took on the staff in a well spirited basketball match. Click on the link below to see some photos captured by Mrs Handforth.

In numeracy, students have been working on consolidating their knowledge of fractions. As we move forward students will be using basic operation skills to assist in their learning of the addition and subtraction of fractions in the form of proper, improper and mixed number problems.
Today students commenced a new topic in literacy. We will be exploring the genre of biography. Students will use their research skills to uncover the necessary information to write a biography of a famous/historical figure of their choice. Below is an outline of the task that students will be working towards over the next couple of weeks as well as some modelled questions that will assist them in writing the genre of biography.
