Mother’s Day Celebrations

Mother’s Day Celebrations

What a wonderful way to celebrate our Mothers and Mother figures at our school. We began the day coming together to celebrate Mass. This was followed by a special morning tea where all attendees received a special flower and candle. Our Pastoral Committee did a fantastic job ensuring that all our Mums and mother figures were looked after. It was great to see the amount of Mother’s, Grandmum’s and mother figures attend our special morning tea. Thank you to all who organised and helped with the preparation for the day!

Family Fun Afternoon

Family Fun Afternoon

It was wonderful to welcome our students and families to this afternoon of fun and laughter as they navigated through a variety of activities which included games such as Tug-O-War, Coights, Rob the Nest, Whacky Egg and Spoon and Plumbing Disaster. Students and their families had a ball as they were chased by eagles as they protected their nest in ‘Rob the Nest’ and raced to fill their leaky pipes in ‘Plumbing Disaster’. It was great to see such a wonderful turn out to our first community event for Term Two. Thank you to our Friends of St Jude’s for supplying our afternoon snack packs.

Stations of the Cross

Stations of the Cross

Our Year 6 leaders led us in a most reverent tableau titled ‘By the Cross’, retelling the final events in the life of Jesus. This year, the tableau not only featured the children’s portrayal but also included reflections from both child and adult perspectives. This added depth to the performance, inviting the audience to engage with the story on multiple levels. Moreover, the re-enactment embedded the teachings of the school’s “Making Jesus Real” program, reinforcing the values of compassion, forgiveness, and selflessness.

We are proud of our children and all that they achieve and share with them a great pride in our school.

Year 6 Camp

Students took part in a 3 Day camp in the beautiful surrounds of Nanga Bush Camp in Dwellingup. The camp begun with a liturgy centred around ‘talents and gifts’ which linked in well with the classes RE Unit on ‘Vocations’. This theme was then linked in with ‘leadership’. While there, students participated in a number of activities centred around teamwork and leadership while other activities encouraged students to take risks and challenge themselves!

Walkathon

Raising money for Caritas (Project Compassion), students took part in a 4km Project Compassion Walkathon around the school! Organised by the Year 6 Pastoral Committee with the special ‘blue’ theme chosen this year, the event started with a special presentation about Caritas and included an explanation outlining the purpose of the event and where the funds raised would be going. It was wonderful to see so many families offer to help out during the day which assisted immensely in the success of the day. The vibe was great as students and staff completed each lap.

Harmony Day

What a day! Students from across the school took part in our Harmony Day celebrations today. We began the day with a special liturgy centred around belonging and loving your neighbour. This was followed by cultural activities throughout the day centred on the cultures of the students in each classroom. Adding to the festivities was a ‘Bollywood Dance’ incursion which had everyone up and dancing as students learnt a number of Bollywood dance routines.

Swimming Lessons

What a start to the year! Swimming lessons took place in the first two weeks of Term 1 to complement our Physical Education program. This year, students attended lessons during Summer and learnt many skills over the two weeks from developing confidence in the water, to refining their swimming strokes and learning new strokes, to a number of survival skills which included water safety and rescue techniques. It was a great way to start the year!
