Thanks to everyone who came to LEGO Club on Friday.
Well done to Flick, Piper, Hannah, Sophie, Stephanie, Paige and Aimee for creating this fantastic display to celebrate Dr Seuss’ birthday.
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.
This Tuesday at lunch, Programmers Club will be in the STEM Lab. This week we will be taking a look at micro:bits. Have a look at this video for more information.
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?’

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
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.
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.
Just a friendly reminder regarding the compulsory Adult Sacramental Night on Wednesday 20th March at 7pm at St Kevin’s Church. If your child is making a sacrament this year, you will need to attend. The night will be lead by Fr Elio Capra. We look forward to seeing you there!

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.

Last week, our FIRE Carrier Leaders old and new ‘passed the torch’ from 2018 to 2019! Hudson, Jacinta, Reyhan and Allegra worked together with Olivia, Chiara, Piper and Raf to create our Sea of Hands display in the front garden. And doesn’t it look fab?!

I had to look twice when I received this message, but a school from a city called St Charles in Missouri (USA) have asked whether we could assist with their survey.
Did anyone know that there is a city called, St Charles?
Today the wonderful new Foundation students started school!
We all had a fantastic day on our first day. We visited Mr Thomas in his office and he let the new Preps sit on his chair. It was so much fun.
