Issue 5 - Community Relations

Lunchtime musicians Drone video shoot App update Already the end of Term 1, it doesn't seem possible. See what your amazing students have been up to this week. Lunchtime musicians On Monday 4 April six students started off our Summer Series which will continue again in Term 4. There was an array of different performances, ages and instruments. Although students were nervous they performed really well and entertained the student body during lunch. The Summer Series is a relaxed performance opportunity and a chance for audience members to listen to some music during their lunch break. It was well received and I look forward to more performances later in the year. Caitlin Kuchel Year 7 – “Titanium" Feat.

Issue 5 - Chaplain

• “We must find the body!”                                                                                   BACK Over the Easter weekend I went to the cinema to see the movie Risen. This is an interesting movie in as much as whilst most New Testament-inspired movies follow Jesus' storyline from his perspective or that of his followers, Risen seeks to tell a different side of the story. Risen takes the point of view of Clavius, a skeptical Roman commander serving under the rule of Pontius Pilate. Having been warned by the Jewish priests that there was a danger that Jesus’ followers might try to steal the body, Pilate had ordered that his seal be placed on the tomb and that a guard be stationed outside the tomb to ensure that the body did not go missing. Then Caiaphas got the news that the tomb was empty, and brought the news to Pilate. His army, part of one of the greatest military forces in history, had just failed in their job.…

Issue 5 - Head of Primary

Harmony Day Choir Camp Athletic success  Harmony Day Our school community has families from many different cultural backgrounds. We embrace this and want to create opportunities for our students to further develop their awareness of their own and others cultures to broaden their global perspective. Harmony Day is a celebration of our diversity and an opportunity to share traditions and customs. Today we enjoyed a wonderful Harmony Day Assembly and enjoyed a feast for Lighting Lunch that was reflective of the many cultures that make up our school community. In between the obligatory vegemite sandwiches and lamingtons, were delicious Sri Lankan curries, Indian samosas and Thai delicacies. My ‘low carb’ diet went out the window very quickly! Many thanks to Haylee Godfrey for working so hard to create a wonderful day of food and activities. Thank you to Fiona Currey for a wonderful assembly; our students looked wonderful in a wide array of traditional costumes – and our staff certainly embraced the dress of their country of origin. All money raised through the Lightning Lunch will be spent on resources for our students as recommended by our Class Representatives.Aerial photo of all the Primary School students and staff taken by…
