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 🙂
Recently the Year 4, 5 & 6 students have been learning about Earth & Space Science. As part of these studies, we had a visit from Earth Science Western Australia (ESWA) on the 16th of May. The Year 5 students took part in some hands-on activities and learned about how farmers can use chemistry to test rocks to help them improve their soil.
The Year 6 students learned about the different types of volcanoes and completed an investigation about the viscosity of their lava. Thanks to WASP, an initiative supported by Woodside and ESWA, for an exciting incursion.
