Shared Lunch

Dear families,

This Friday, 22nd of September is the Moon Lantern assembly at Holy Family.

As part of this celebration the students are invited to wear their cultural clothing on the day to celebrate the diversity of the Holy Family school community.

In 5/6LF and 5/6 NA we are going to be hosting a shared lunch  at 12:20 on the day to celebrate the cultures of our double class.

We invite families to please send in some savoury food for the shared lunch on Friday.

I apologise for the late notice in getting this to you and am hopeful that you will be able to support us in this event.

Kind regards,

Luke Flanigan and Nella Apolloni

An amazing effort by the students to lead an assembly with three different classes coming together.

Thank you to the family who were available today to cheer them on and to those who were unable to attend, I hope you are able to enjoy some photos of the event.

An effort we can all be very proud of today.

The big day is coming! We are so excited to host our Colour Splatacular School Fun Run on Friday 29 September from 1.30pm to 3.00pm. Parents are invited to attend.

How do prizes work? Help your child fundraise more by setting a prize goal online! Students automatically achieve incentive prizes as they fundraise, starting from $10.

Camp 5/6LF

Dear families/caregivers,

Last week we enjoyed 3 action packed days at Mylor Adventure Camp. The students were involved in activities ranging from a 40km per hour flying fox to bouldering, bug hunting, bridge building, raft making, low ropes courses and my personal favourite the challenge course (where everyone was soaked)

The kids represented our school in an incredible manner and Nella and myself could not be prouder in how they conducted themselves.

Camp is always a tiring and sometimes challenging experience, it forces us from our comfort zones and even from the comfort of home and the safety of mum and dad. However…while we had some tears and some students who were missing family throughout…I am confident that we had even more laughs and smiles across the 3 days.

I have attached some photos of the activity group that I was working with for the 3 days. I apologise in advance for the poor lighting/quality of some of the photos…( I definitely have no future career in photography)

For those not in my activity group…we will endeavour to hunt down some photos across the next week or so and will hopefully be able to share some of the moments with you.

Thank you.

Luke Flanigan
