If you think Messi is good – you should see Sam Kerr!

Last night, a keen group from St. Charles had the chance to watch the Matildas play a soccer friendly against China.

We had to assemble at Gosch’s paddock where there were activities you could do.

We waited for a while before we could walk out into the stadium but there was lots of singing.

We got to walk around the stadium before the game.

The standard of play was amazing, Sam Kerr starred with 2 goals.

Thanks to all the parents and carers who acted as officials and helped with transport.

 

 

What a wonderful World!

 Toolangi Forest 

Toolangi, Toolangi is so fun, it is fun for everyone.

Cabins, activities and a flying fox too, it might just be the best camp for you!

Snakes, leeches and tiny possums, we also saw the environment blossom.

Bedtime, movies and midnight snacks, in the morning we all started to pack,

We dodged the rain and had a snack, then the time had come to go back,

We pulled up at school and hopped off the bus, but everyone was still in a rush.

Hugs of excitement and joy went around, and soon all of our bags were found!

Didgeridoo

Hi, I am Gemma and I am one of the Fire Carriers.at St Charles Borromeo. I am going to talk about the didgeridoo.

The didgeridoo is one of the oldest instruments on earth.

Aborigines used to listen to the sounds of nature such as footsteps, trees creaking or the sound of the wind and then imitate it closely with the didgeridoo.

Did you know that women can’t play the didgeridoo? This is because Aborigines believe that it is taboo for women even touch a didgeridoo.

Here is a YouTube clip that lets you hear what didgeridoos sound like. 

MAT program with 1/2

I had the pleasure today to observe a 1/2 class enjoying their MAT program with Guy. Guy talked to the children about perseverance, taking a risk, making mistakes and growth mindset. The students were totally engaged and their questions and answers showed the rich learning they are enjoying with this brilliant program.
