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.
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.
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.
Students are invited to wear casual clothes this FRIDAY.
We ask that a packet of lollies is brought to school. These will be to raise funds for the upcoming spring fair.
Please join us in the hall at 9am tomorrow for our buddy assembly with Miss McCarthy’s Reception class. It promises to be lots of fun.
