Holy Family girls cricket team to play at Adelaide Oval

Howzat!!!!

Back in term 1, a whole lot of students (boys and girls) participated in the Northern Zone Blast Cricket Tournament. The day saw great success for all of our teams that participated but for one particular team the journey is not yet over.

Last Friday the school received notification that one of our girls teams who went through the tournament undefeated have now gained entry into the State Final to be held at the Adelaide Oval.

This feat is absolutely heightened by the fact that prior to the tournament each of the students had very limited experience in playing cricket. Yet, through a willingness to give something new a go and an attitude of positivity, exciting opportunities have now presented to this group.

7 of the 9 girls in the team are in our double and are very excited to have the opportunity to play at Adelaide Oval.

Graduation Yearbook

This term students are well under way and  busy working on their contribution to the graduation yearbook. This year the yearbook will be presented in the format of a digital iBook. Each graduating student will be represented by a chapter of the book. Within their chapter students will reflect on their final year of primary school along with their journey across the years at Holy Family.

This iBook allows for loads of unique content from each student while also enabling students to produce a published piece collectively that will showcase their learning, friendships, year highlights and special events from throughout the year.

Each week students will have to meet editorial deadlines that will allow us to have our iBook reviewed by Apple prior to being published on the iBook Store before students graduate.

We are very eager and look forward to seeing how each student contributes to this collection.

PHENOMENAL Showcase of learning

When you have teachers leaving a room saying, “My mind is blown,” you know the students have done something well!

Our showcase this morning was beyond any expectations set at the start of the term.

It was amazing to see each student produce such outstanding work. Work of which they were proud. When questioned about something new they had learnt, each student was able to share in detail their findings.

An amazing term’s worth of work. Thanks to all the family members who came to look today and who shared a genuine interest in each person’s work. The children really appreciated your interest.

We also had a number of classes come to visit our Museum.

Thanks also the parents who help support their children with buying materials and allowing them time at home to work on their presentations.

3 proud teachers today!!

 

 

Working on the Cartesian plane

Over the last week students have been busy working on their understanding of translations, rotations and reflections on the Cartesian plane. Students created their own image that they then plotted on Cartesian plane before using the principles of translation, rotation and reflection across the four quadrants. Have a look below at some of our finished work.

Moon Lantern Day

Don’t forget tomorrow is a SHARED lunch.

If you’re bringing in hot food it would be great if that arrives by about 12.15.

All children are to bring their own fork and reusable plate.

Students can wear cultural clothes, red or their school uniform.

We look forward to celebrating tomorrow.

History Showcase

We welcome you next WEDNESDAY 26th of September at 9am to our classrooms for a showcase of learning.

This term the students have been working hard to show their learning about an ancient world. The students are working on dioramas, creating food, computer presentations, letters and many other creative ways to show their learning. This has also been homework all term so hopefully you have already seen some of the learning your child has been doing.

To celebrate the learning that has taken place, each student will be set up Wednesday morning to present their findings to the wider community. We invite you the parents, grandparents and friends of the students and we will also be extending an invitation to other classes and members of staff around the school. Please share in your child’s learning but also take the time to look at what other student’s have done as well. We have some very creative students in the class!

We hope you can come along to share in your child’s learning journey.

Moon Lantern Festival

We are celebrating the Moon Lantern Festival this Friday at school. You would have received a note last week to bring some food to share with the class at lunchtime. We also ask each student to bring their own reusable plate and a fork from home to reduce the waste of plastic plates and forks.

Many thanks for your support

Catholic Schools Music Festival

Last night seven students from 6/7NB & MS performed as members of the combined Catholic Schools Festival Choir at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre Theatre. It was a superb night where so many talented students showcased their musical prowess to a captivated audience.

 

Aaliyah, Aurora, Alicia, Bella, Monica, Kiara & Keerat have been working hard since February to learn the songs and accompanying choreography. Well done girls on a wonderful performance.

 

 

Making moon lanterns

Next Friday the school will celebrate the Moon Lantern Festival. In preparation for this occasion the class has been busy making lanterns. The exciting thing this year has been all the different interpretations of lantern designs that have been creatively thought of by the students. Progress photos below. Final products to follow.
