Luka (“I liked this task because I got to use my creativity and draw what ever I wanted to.”)

Keira (” I like how we could draw Grandpa and Jack and how we got to write information about them”)

Jayden(” I like this task because it helped me with my creativity to a whole new level.”)

Dalena (” how we got to draw what we think Grandad and Jack looked liked”)

Katarina & Madison (” We liked this task because we both got to make cool character’s it was really fun to do and most of all we got to blog this”)

We hope to post more photos and stories about what we have/will be doing soon!

Each day some students will be presenting prayers, in different formats.

“For our prayer we are planning on getting students to listen to music and listen to short prayer we have found” Nikki and Kirra

“Our prayer is about thanking God. We’re also going to listen to music” Solomon and Ryan

We have also put together a prayer book that you are free to look at when you visit our class.

Laptop workshop Tuesday 27th February 9am

Hi everyone,


Tomorrow (Tuesday 27th Feb) from 9 – 10:30am the school will be running another family workshop about how to use the student laptops. We may cover areas such as:


  • Programs available on the laptop
  • How to save and retrieve data
  • Upload photos
  • General rules about laptop use (i.e. not eating or drinking near devices, appropriate games)

It will be a very practical workshop led by the families and their questions. We are also asking the students to come with their families so students are involved in teaching and explaining ideas to the adults.


The workshop is free and will be held in the Cafe.

We hope the workshop will help you and your child benefit from the use of their laptop at school and at home.


Kind regards,


Ms Pinneri, Mr Murray and Ms Pettet
