NAIDOC Week Celebrations
Students had a great time hearing local dreaming stories, learning our colour house names and totem animal names in the traditional language of the original custodians, performing totem dances and completing totem collages, boomerang throwing and learning Dadirri and aboriginal ways. Ev​en our PE lessons were modified to include traditional indigenous peoples games! In art there was Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art appreciation lessons and we continued the tradition of having kangaroo and crocodile tasting experiences in our whole school BBQ.
Year 4 also led us in liturgy with the focus being NAIDOC and linking to our tradition custodians.
This all came to a conclusion with the reptile show and whole school showcase assembly with special guests performing their dances.

Mixed Media Monochromatic Artworks

Students worked on mixed media monochromatic artworks, using limited colours to create deep sea images in chalk pastel and paint.

​​The students planned their works to include just the right amount of jelly fish and seaweed and found working with the chalk pastels to be quite relaxing...despite also being a bit messy.

​National Reconciliation Week 2021: More than a Word – Reconciliation Takes Action

During National Reconciliation Week students learnt about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements and how we can all contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia. 
Much like our Catholic tradition, reconciliation is about respectful and healing relationships. Our Year 1 / 2 classes learned about Reconciliation Week and linked it to some amazing art. ​

ANZAC Liturgy and Flag and Ceremonial Gath​ering Space Blessing

We officially lau​nched our new flags and ceremonial gathering space.

Our ANZAC liturgy was a reverent, respectful and mature liturgy led by our Year 5 and Year 6 students with such great leadership. They were able to portray the importance that this occasion requires and showed such great character in how they presented the event.
