The year 5/6s presented this week’s Advent liturgy.
We posed two questions to the students, parents and teachers present:
- What can you do during Advent to make a difference in someone’s life?
- What do we receive when we give to others?
Today the year 5/6s went to the Royal Botanical Gardens at Cranbourne. On the traditional lands of Boonwurrung, we were honoured with a “Welcome to Country”. We then got to roam and see a wide array of Australian landscapes, plants and trees. We had a lesson on some of Boonwurrung words, such as ‘Bik’ (which means land). And we got to see and handle tools made and used by the Boonwurrung people.
To celebrate this unique Melbourne holiday, here are some games the 3/4s and 5/6s have made for your enjoyment.
Mia was away today so I will blog for her this week. A big, BIG thank you to Indiana and Alessia P (5.6 M) who are part of Mia’s team and coordinated the collection, judging and the announcement of the winner on the loud speaker.
This week’s winner is Bianca from 3/4CC who created this very real looking burger and fries.
Below is an image of the other art pieces that were entered this week.
Next week’s theme is: people
Thanks to Father Gerry for kick-starting our feast day with a whole school Mass. It was great to see the whole school get into the singing.
Happy Feast Day everyone!
Preparations for the drama concert are coming along nicely. Here is Anthony and David (5/6 SC) all set for their rehearsal.
For the final day of term, we came together to celebrate another football season. Great to see all of the colours (even the black and white). Good luck to supporters whose teams are still in the finals.
In exciting news for St Charles Borromeo, both Ethan (5/6 M) and Jacinta (5/6 SC) have progressed beyond the State level to the final National level of judging. Judges in Canberra will now decide the National and State champions. Congratulations to Jacinta and Ethan for making it this far and good luck! We are very proud of both you.

A large number of our school uniforms were donated to boys and girls in Vanuatu. The people here were recently hit by a severe cyclone and our donation was greatly appreciated.
Well done to Marni (Flick and Patrick’s mother) for organising this and thank you to Heather Prior for transporting and coordinating the donation (as well as sending through these pictures).
