Programmers Club

Today at lunch, we took a look at micro:bits. In a short amount of time, students worked out how to program the little computers to display messages. Thanks to Daniel from the Catholic Education Melbourne’s Eastern Office for loaning the devices to us.

There was a great display of collaboration and problem-solving. 

Catholic Education Week Mass

Catholic Education Week is an opportunity for all Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Melbourne to celebrate their Catholic identity and the pivotal role they play within their local community. We are blessed to belong to such a strong faith community. Now is the time to ask ourselves ‘what would God want us to do?’ 

     

Templestowe Dockers clinics

Our Preps, ones and twos were lucky to have a football clinic thanks to the Templestowe Dockers. Matt was able to show how much fun footy can be and he is also in charge of the Auskick program at the Dockers.

All students received a free drink bottle. They tried marking, handball and kicking. Hopefully some of these youngsters support our local club while learning the skills of the game

Division swimming

Last Friday we were fortunate to have two very good swimmers represent St. Charles at the Division swimming carnival at Aquanation in Ringwood. Cecilia and Kalita swam very well in their events. They are in different age groups. Kalita swam her breaststroke race in 53.91 seconds. Cecilia swam her breaststroke race in 49.56 seconds

Cecilia has managed to qualify for the regional finals in breaststroke. We wish her the very best.

Year 5 /6 Excursion- Street Art Walking Tour

 Street art is a form of public art.  Sometimes it is considered ‘Graffiti’. What is the difference? As we found out on our excursion, this public art is labelled ‘Street Art’ only when permitted by authorities. Without permits, this art is regarded as illegal ‘Graffiti’ yet many of these works are highly important creative and political pieces.  Some view this type of Art as a form of vandalism. After viewing the street art – can you answer this question. Is Street Art vandalism? Should it be banned?  Here a few images of Street Art. 

     

      

Preparing for Lent

Lent is a special time when we stop and think about how we can play our part in God’s hope for a world that is fair, just and peaceful. Through prayer, fasting and almsgiving we take the focus from ourselves and instead focus on our relationship with God.
