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.
Tuesday was a big baking day in Year One!
Our writing genre focus over recent weeks has been learning how to write procedures. We saved the best procedure for last…baking Gluten Free Chocolate Shortbread Stars!
We followed the steps very carefully to bake some yummy end of term treats!
The biggest challenge was to remember all of the ingredients and list of steps the next day when we did our own writing! We wrote some very impressive procedures!
It was a lovely way to celebrate all our hard work this term!
Thanks Mrs Roberto and Mrs Andrews…we couldn’t have done it without you!
We can’t wait to cook again soon!
St. Emilie’s Feast Day falls on the 17th of June each year. On this day we reflect on the life and legacy of our school’s patron saint, Saint Emilie de Vialar.
St. Emilie devoted her life to helping others. During her time, she opened hospitals and schools and went on to establish the congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph of the Apparition. The sisters continue sharing her devotion to helping others through missionary work, education of the youth and care of the sick.
On Wednesday, we reflected on the Prayer to St. Emilie. In the prayer, it tells us how we can love others and help those in need as Jesus taught us. We wrote about how we can be more like St. Emilie and created art pieces. Some of us drew pictures of our parents and grandparents, as they, just like St. Emilie, guide us and teach us to be caring and charitable. Some of us drew pictures of us helping our friends when they are in need.
