On Tuesday 6th August, twenty students from Year 5 and 6 travelled to Mercy College to perform their liturgical dance routine. The girls have been rehearsing their piece for the past ten weeks, in preparation for the Performing Arts Festival for Catholic Schools. The movement was performed to the, ‘Compassion Hymn’, and it highlighted the amazing and overflowing mercy, that Christ our Lord so generously shares with us all. The girls represented our school through dance, celebrating the rich Gospel message of peace, kindness and forgiveness, and can be very proud of their efforts.
This term, we have been learning all about Sustainability! In our HASS unit, we have looked at natural disasters, climate, endangered animals and investigated the things we can do to help make our planet a better place to live.
Our assembly was based on Endangered Animals. Each student chose a particular animal to research and create an art piece about. We had a great time learning about these beautiful creatures and what we can do to help them, and we hope we can play a small part in keeping them alive!
Here are some photos from the assembly. You can also click on THIS LINK to watch a video of our HISTORY by One Direction REMIX. Enjoy 🙂

Parliament in Western Australia inherited the English system of government and law when it was colonised in 1829. Its first legislative body was the Legislative Council, which met for the first time on 7 February 1832 and was presided over by the Governor of Western Australia, Captain James Stirling, who nominated four other members.
On the 26th February 2019, the Year 5 and 6 students went on an excursion to the Parliament House and Constitutional Centre in West Perth. The students were involved in 3 sessions.
The Constitutional Centre where the children learnt all about the 3 levels of government. Federal – State – Local.
An educational tour of Parliament House to see how it works and some had the opportunity to undertake a role-play in the Legislative Assembly Chamber.
Lastly, the students had the opportunity to meet a Member of Parliament (our local member for Southern River – Terry Healy).
