Learning Powers Assembly

At today’s assembly we were introduced to the Learning Power Mascots and heard about how the learning powers are already being used here at St Charles. It was great to see so many examples resilience, risk taking, reflection, collaboration and innovation.

Well done to the students who helped design the mascots. They look fantastic!

Congratulations to all the recipients of the first ever Learning Power awards!


3/4 Parish Mass

It was amazing to see so many families from our school gathered together to celebrate a Parish Mass at St Kevin’s Church last Saturday night. The students engaged in welcoming people, carrying up the message stick, prayers of the faithful, setting the table, the offertory procession and singing. It was a great vibe with full participation from those present and Fr Gerry leading us in the celebration of Eucharist.

Remembrance Day

Remembrance Day has a special significance in 2018.        

Sunday, 11 November 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the Armistice which ended the First World War (1914–18).

One hundred years ago, on 11 November 1918, the guns of the Western Front fell silent after four years of continuous warfare. With their armies retreating and close to collapse, German leaders signed an Armistice, bringing to an end the First World War.

We pray:

For all who have served the cause of peace in our armed forces

For all who have lost loved ones due to war, 
For all who continue to suffer due to war, 

For all who long for Your peace, 
For all who dedicate their lives to Your peace, 
For all who bring Your comfort to veterans and their families,

For all of us – called to be messengers of Your peace, 


What Can We Do?


This is what our world can look like.

To all students at St Charles, I am starting a new blog series called, “What can we do?” This is all about things that we can do to make the world a better place, but with a twist.


For my InquiRe unit, we are learning about being “stewards of the Earth” and sustainability. The definition of sustainability is: The ability to be maintained at a certain rate or level. The definition of stewards is: The job of supervising or taking care of something.

Once a week I will post something we can do to make the world a better place. It may go from as little as picking up one piece of rubbish every time we go out to play to planting your own garden. Things like this will help make the world last longer. The twist is if I see you doing something helpful to the environment you get a raffle ticket and at the end of this year you will go in the draw to win something.

I hope you can all act on this huge issue to help the world last longer because remember it all started with US.
