The Sacrament of Reconciliation was described by Pope Francis as a special way to enable people to touch the grandeur of God’s mercy with their own hands.
During Week Two of this term, many of our Year Three children received this beautiful sacrament for the first time. They then celebrated, with family and friends, during the weekend’s Thanksgiving Masses.
Thank you to Miss Tiana Massimi and Miss Chantelle Goodall for their special efforts in preparing the children and journeying, with families, throughout the sacramental program. We sincerely thank Mrs Lyn Harkins, our Parish Sacramental Coordinator.
Thank you, also, to Father Chien and Father Giovanni for their valuable input to preparations and for their spiritual guidance.
We hope this sacrament will continue to be a source of comfort, peace and renewal for them all now and into the future.

To wrap up our Sustainability Inquiry unit, we created songs about sustaining our environment. Some themes included turning off lights when they are not in use, and only buying what you need. We choreographed actions to help us to remember our simple tips. Small changes each day can make a huge difference in our future.

This term we have been learning about Place Value. We have talked about how Place Value means the value of where a digit is in a number. Today we used cards to make the bigger number. In partners we got a deck of cards and shared them between the two of us. From our piles we drew out three cards. With theses three cards we had to make the biggest number. The person who had the bigger number won the cards. We then tried making the biggest four digit numbers using the cards.
Today the Year Three’s were very lucky to head over to the Year Four classrooms to do some reading with them. We were put into groups and given an informational text to read and discuss. In our groups, we took turns reading and talked to our peers about what we had learnt. We are looking forward to reading groups again next Wednesday!
