Father Giovanni will be coming live on youtube each Sunday so that families and parishioners are able to access the Sunday Mass.
Thank you to all those families who joined us last Friday evening at our Family Picnic – it was a lovely balmy evening and a great opportunity for us all to connect with one another.
A very special thank you to our dynamic P&F duo Rachel Davies and Larissa Shaw, who organised the sausage sizzle and drinks, and to their respective husbands and children, who all lent a helping hand cooking, setting up and packing away. To other P&F members and staff members an equally big thank you also – your presence and generous service of our community is very special and greatly appreciated.
It was really great to see families reaching out in friendship to new faces and families – thank you for the consideration you showed, as it really helped to make new families feel welcome.
I think you will agree that Anna Dabbs (Mr Nick Dabbs’ talented daughter) did a fantastic job playing and singing for us throughout the evening. At just 17 she certainly has a promising future ahead!
It is always wonderful when we have an opportunity to come together as a community – thank you so much for making the effort and for the generous, positive and caring ways you interacted on the night – it means so much.
Just a reminder to all families, that our Year 6 Environmental Committee offer the following recycling services to our school community.
Greenbatch Foundation partners with schools allowing students to collect their old PET plastic bottles through recycling, providing PET which is used in research and development for 3D printer filament. By recycling through Greenbatch we can save plastic from entering landfills, oceans and waste incinerators.
As from Term 3, our green and purple Greenbatch bins will return to the undercover area on Wednesday mornings. You are very welcome and encouraged to bring in your HDPE 2 and PET 1 plastics. PET plastic is the type found in drink bottles and food packaging such as strawberry punnets or peanut butter jars, and has the number 1 inside the recycling symbol.
We will also continue to offer our battery collection. The yellow battery bin will be placed out in the undercover area on Wednesday morning along with the Greenbatch bins. Please bring along your unwanted batteries and place them in the bin. Once the bin is 3/4 full we contact the City of Gosnells and the batteries are taken away for recycling.
If you bring your batteries or plastics to school on any other day you will find yellow battery bin in the undercover area and the purple Greenbatch bins parked up by Learning Hub.
Thank you for your continuing support and to our students for their efforts at contributing towards the health of the planet by conducting these recycling projects.
This week our Science Inquiry Group presented their projects to an audience of invited guests.
Throughout terms 2, 3 and 4 students have worked in partners to design, build and test an air racer vehicle. It’s been a very challenging project but well worth the effort. The learning and problem solving opportunities have been exceptional.
Each team presented a powerpoint to share their learning and the challenges that they encountered.
Then the students set up their own race track. We didn’t wish to take the parents to the basketball court in this current heat wave. So the students set up their own racetrack by putting the table together.
Mrs Cogger is very proud of the group and their achievements. Well done and keep up your enthusiasm for Science projects at high school.
