Wishing you all a very happy, safe and as relaxing a weekend as possible!
An extra day can really make all the difference when it comes to recharging the battery, can’t it?
Stepping back from the busyness of life for a broader view and reassessing what is really worth investing in while also pondering what we can let go of…
We will be thinking and praying for all those parents who (known and unknown to us) :
- may have to work for part or all of the weekend…
- who are in hospital themselves or have loved ones who are sick in hospital or respite…
- who continue to deal with the loss of employment…
- who are experiencing financial strain and hardship…
- who are going through a relationship breakdown…
Weekends hopefully give us all time to be reminded of and to embrace the important things in life…
And for a giggle…

Today we were rubbish detectives!
We went in search of ‘crime scenes’ around our school and were given the task of recording what we found.
We needed to gather our evidence and work out what may have caused the crime.
Then it was time to put our heads together and come up with a solution to the problem. How can we reduce the amount of rubbish being found around our school?
Here are some of our ideas…
* Make sure rubbish goes into the bins
* Make sure the lids are on the bins so the rubbish doesn’t fly away
* Don’t bring wrappers to school!
* Make sure you hold on to your wrappers or keep your lunch box closed when you’re eating
* If you see some rubbish, pick it up!
* Make a sign to put around the school
The good news is that there wasn’t a whole lot of rubbish to be found!
It seems that most of us are doing the right thing and making sure our school is kept clean and tidy.
Great job, everyone!

This fun filled fortnight, we have learnt about some of the sensational animals that are distinctive to Asia and the Philippines in particular.
We were surprised to discover some beautiful animals such as the Philippines eagle is critically endangered and in need of care in sanctuaries and zoos in the Philippines in order for the species to survive extinction.
We talked about the importance of conservation and deforestation and the beauty of the tropical climate in the Philippines.
