Dear Parents and Care givers,
On behalf of both classes and all the students, a BIG thank you to the parents and caregivers that were able to bring in a plate of food to share!
It was an amazing spread of food and the children were very grateful.
Enjoy the weekend.

Good morning all,
Just clarifying, we WILL be having a shared lunch for Harmony day tomorrow, Friday the 23rd March.
It would be great if you are able to provide a small plate of cultural food to share with the class. Please be aware, we have some students with allergies, so label anything that is home-made.
Thanks again for all the support.
Ché, Sara and Nadia.
This Wednesday 21st March is National Harmony Day. It is a day where we celebrate Australia’s diversity and a day of cultural respect for everyone who calls Australia home.
Here at Holy Family, we will be celebrating Harmony Day on Friday 23rd March starting at 9am. Parents are warmly invited to attend the 4RG Assembly which will focus on celebrating our diversity and feature different cultural dances.
For this occasion, students are encouraged to wear traditional cultural clothing, orange or school uniform. Students are invited to bring a plate of food that represents their culture for a shared lunch in their classes. Parents and carers are also welcome to join their children’s classes in the shared lunch.
This Friday 16th March is National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence. The National Day is Australia’s key anti-bullying event for schools; schools are called to imagine a world free of bullying. An important part of the day is to stimulate conversations around bullying and violence and where to seek assistance if students need it:
The website above has fantastic resources to support the work in bullying if you need.
Orange is the colour for the day so we have highlighted this throughout some of the activities planned for the day. One of the aims of the day is to bring additional awareness of bullying and violence and to start conversations with and amongst students.
- Jayne and Sue from the canteen have kindly offered to only serve orange snack foods at recess and lunch
- Yr6/7HM and Yr6/7ND will incorporate elements of No Bullying and Violence in their assembly that day
- At lunchtime on Friday we are aiming to have some student led lunch time activities
This week we have been learning about Perimeter, today we had a new task for perimeter and the task was to make shapes like triangles, squares, rectangles etc. Example 6cm and 4cm and we had to put the numbers together and find out the perimeter.
“that you only need to have two sides to work out the perimeter” Sebastian
“I found out the perimeter could be different on any shape” Jaida
“I found out that perimeter is the outside of the shape” Maddie
“we found out the perimeter is that you can make different shapes and you can tell what it is by different shapes” Dalena, Erimina, Tammy & Ann
“I found out that at the start it was hard but once we started learning it more it became more easy” Annie, Angel & Sukhi

Yesterday 5PP and 5CM had office Cassie and her team visit our classes to chat about the ways in which we can be safe online. We discussed such tips as:
-check our privacy settings on apps to ensure it is not set on public view
-think before we post a comment or an image
-only be friends online with people we physically know
-know the people and organisations who can help when we need it
-Police officers are in our community to help us and keep us safe
During class we started learning about the national anthem during our HASS lessons. We had discussions as to what it was about and what the words meant. We also looked at the Kaurna Acknowledgement and what this represents to the Aboriginal and Kaurna people.
Today we began to put an iMovie together and recreate the national anthem with different images, explaining what it means and what it represents.

This assembly performed by 6/7B and 6/7SM and was about ‘The Story of the Feather.’
They showed the story in their little way and also showed how the CLARA learning powers work. At the end they did a little dance to give a little laugh. What we both thought of the assembly was that it was very entertaining to watch and creative.
‘Here is the class showing how they’ve made their own dream catchers’
‘They are acting out how the feather blew away in the book’
‘Funny entertaining dance’
