Happy Father’s Day!
Last Friday morning we were lucky enough to have our Dad’s spend the morning in our classroom participating in art and craft and playing outdoor sports in the beautiful sunshine.
We drove monster trucks through white paint, created a tie for dad to wear to work, printed tools in the play-dough and wood work outside. We learnt what we find in dad’s tool box and what we use to fix things in our house.
Thank you to all the dads, uncles and grandfathers for your time and presence in Pre-Primary on Friday morning.
We hope you had a wonderful time because we did and we also hope you had an excellent Father’s Day on Sunday.
What fun we had on Friday when we invited Dads, Uncles and Grandads into Pre Primary for the morning to engage in some fun indoor and outdoor activities with the children. The children loved dressing Dads up to pose for a photo in the photo booth!
We decorated ties for our Dad’s and created art work with monster trucks in paint. We imprinted tools and hardware into play dough and made some interesting creations. We created sculptures with nuts, bolts, keys, chains and magnets.
We engaged in Maths activities – rolling and adding dice, playing ‘Adding Wars’ with playing cards, recognising and adding Australian coins and weighing objects on balance scales.
It was a beautiful sunny day and we made a lot of noise hammering at the wood work station outdoors. We kicked the footballs, played soccer and cricket and explored our playground and bush area with our Dads.
It was a busy morning and lots of fun was had by everyone!
This Saturday 5th September from 2.30pm to 5.00pm, you are invited to come and join the Parish Pastoral team, Fr Chien and Fr Anibal, Anne, Stuart and I and parishioners from St Emilies, to pause and reflect upon the idea of Christian service, in relation to being a volunteer here at St Emilie’s. Ministry teams will share in small groups about their journey so far and what they hope to achieve into the future.
There are many different ministries operating in the St Emilie’s parish and they are always looking for new people to join them, as new people bring fresh ideas and new energy! If you would like to come and see if there is a ministry that you might like to be part of please come along!
Please BYO small plate for afternoon tea if you can and phone Kim or Ashana on 92569696 to RSVP.
Hope to see you there! 🙂
