What a way to wake up! One degree and ice on the wooden deck. Everyone has made the most of it, with a touch of ice skating.
Congratulations to our parish football team. They played a great brand of football and enjoyed going in hard. I’m sure there are some future AFLW stars. Thank you to Mr Puls, Steven (our coach) and the local clubs for making this possible. Continue reading
I would like to thank everyone for today. We raised lots of money to go towards, “Good Life Farm”. I would like to thank all the students for participating today and bringing a gold coin donation. Hopefully, everyone had a good free dress day!

Doncare came to pick up all items today.
In 1/2 we got to ask lots of questions about the families who rely on Doncare.
We even got to help them load up the items into their cars.
Thanks to everyone who donated something, and well done to all the classes!
A special congratulations to 3/4CA and 3/4BM who both had a total of 316 each. The BBQ will be in the last week of term.
The school TOTAL was 2013 items!
This week we have read many of the picture story books shortlisted by the Children’s Book Council. Ee found them all very diverse and interesting. The themes ranged from refugees coming into Australia and finding a peaceful way of life as in the story ‘Out’, environmental issues that impact negatively on our environment as in ‘Mechanica’ and family outings as in ‘Rain’ and finally being creative and building fun projects by reusing and recycling house-hold goods as in the story, ‘The Patchwork Bike’.
Here are some of our Patchwork Bike designs by using common house-hold items. We think they are very original. Let us know what you think.
Here is our mural and artistic responses to Mechanica.
As part of our Science unit on Light, Year 5/6 are busy conducting experiments. We make predictions, design experiments, observe, explain and draw conclusions. Last week, we looked at how the distance of the light source effects the length of the shadow. After our investigation, we created a graph to show our results.
This week we celebrated the Feast of the Assumption of Mary. The Assumption celebrates God’s faithfulness to Mary in life and death. On this day we remember especially that after her death Mary was given the fullness of life. Mary, the Mother of Jesus, co-operated in God’s plan with complete faith and trust. She is a model for all believers. The events of Mary’s life presented her with many times of joy and of sorrow. At all times she believed in God’s love for her, and she showed great care and concern for others.
Today the year 6’s went on a Confirmation Retreat at St Kevin’s Parish.
All the year 6’s from our parish gathered to meet Monsignor Bennett and to practice for Sunday. Here is a Photo of Monsignor Bennett talking to us about Confirmation.
In 1/2 we have been learning about Measurement in Maths! We selected our measurement tool of choice and then measured our friend. It was so much fun!!
Why should we remember the ANZAC’s? What does this day mean to the young people at St Charles? The 5/6 students believe it is about Freedom, Courage, Bravery, Determination, Resilience, Honour, Fear and Gratitude! These are our reflections. Tell us what you think.
On Thursday we were represented with pride and a true understanding of ANZAC Day by 12 amazing Year Six leaders. I was very proud of them. It was an honor to take these young adults out of the school. If you ever get the chance it is an incredible experience the ANZAC Service at Memorial Park seeing over 750 students from 21 local schools pay their respect.
