On Tuesday 22nd August the Year Five and Six classes had the pleasure of a visit from author Nadia King to celebrate this year’s Book Week. Nadia is the author of Jenna’s Truth, a touching story inspired by true events about a young girl who was bullied in school. Nadia also told us about her life and offered these tips for getting started as a writer.
- Dream your story
- Use writing prompts
- Live your life
- Be nosey
Overall it was a very relevant and interesting presentation by Nadia. The students asked some thoughtful and meaningful questions which will assist students when writing their own narratives.
On Wednesday 9th August, Year Six Blue had the pleasure of a visit from Father Giovanni. Father spoke candidly with our class and we learned many new things about him. He told us all about his last retreat to the Eastern States and we learnt about Sicily, Italy, where Father grew up. We also prayed together using one of the Social Justice prayers that we have written in Year Six. We shared an interesting time together and really enjoyed Father’s wonderful sense of humour and his interesting stories.

Year 2 Blue and Year 6 Blue always love getting together to spend time with our buddies!
This week we finished some activities from St Emilie’s day by making our own rosary beads. It was pretty tricky, but we all persisted and showed great teamwork! I’m sure you will all agree that our finished products are very impressive!
