It is hard to believe that we are at the end of semester two. Special thanks to all students, staff and parents who have contributed to another successful term at our school. We can now look forward to term 3 when the excitement continues.

Congratulations to all the children who have recently received the Sacraments of Reconciliation, Eucharist or Confirmation.
Over the last two weeks all Year Three students have been involved in an exciting STEM project. This project has challenged them with new learning in various areas of the curriculum. Full of enthusiasm, the students met with Mrs Holly and her team of students from ECU to design and build a rocket. The big launch took place this week as the students gathered on the top oval to put their rockets to the test. Amongst all the fun and learning it was evident there was a sprinkle of competitiveness amongst students when it came to the big launch!
Today our Year 6’s held a Science Fair. In groups the students displayed experiments on the states of matter. Year 5 students visited the displays to learn about how states of matter interact. The year 6 students prepared individual written scientific reports. They were also assessed as a group, on the visual appeal of their display stands, the associated posters, interactive activities and knowledge of their presented topic.
Teddy Bear Day!
During Term 3 the Kindy children have been reading and telling stories about ‘The Three Bears’. On Thursday each child brought along one of their favourite teddies from home for a Teddy Bear day in Kindy.
The children had such a great time dancing, singing and playing games with their teddies. They decorated some delicious biscuits for a morning tea treat. They made teddy bear ears, painted their faces and measured their teddies with blocks. By the end of the day there were many ‘tired little teddy bears’ in Kindy.
IPSHA Winter Lightning Carnival
Last week we hosted the IPSHA Winter Lightning Carnival. With over 400 students from ten IPSHA schools, all the oval spaces were filled with competitors engaged in either Soccer, Hockey, Netball or AFL games.
About fifty, Year 9 and Year 10 students from the College umpired the various games and they did a terrific job. All Saints College managed to win (the only sport where scores were kept) ”The Eagles Cup.” Our footy team tried extremely hard and were unlucky not to finish higher up the ladder. The players from our netball, soccer and hockey teams all acquitted themselves very well and were highly competitive.
It was a fantastic Carnival and one that fosters great competition, maximum participation and sportsmanship amongst many schools. Congratulations all our Year 6 and some Year 5 students for their efforts on the day. Thanks also goes to our Primary Staff, Mr Dustin Fromm (AFL coach), Mrs Sonja Goss (Netball), Miss Claire Dernie (Hockey) and Mrs Lisa Taylor and Miss Ruth O’Donnell (Soccer.) Sincere thanks to the Grounds and Maintenance team for their great support, Di and the Canteen staff , the Year 6 Coordinators, Sam Margaria and Lizzie Eastwood and all the parent helpers for the magnificent catering on the day.
