Student Voices Speak Volumes

Our Year 5 and 6 students all presented 3 minute speeches on a topic of their choice this term to vie for the opportunity to represent St John’s at an Interschool “Raise Your Voice” competition. The topics were highly engaging and the students impressed all of us with their presentation skills. Topics ranged from “Racism” to “Nasty Additives In Our Food”. From this amazing talent three students from each class were selected to head off to the interschool competition.
Congratulations to all our St John’s Representatives photographed with their Enrichment teacher and special congratulations to Andie Watson who won the Interschool Yr 5 category with her dynamic, winning speech about ‘The Pressures of Professional Athletics.’

The weather has been perfect for our vegetable patch! Recently we harvested some of the delicious vegetables that we have been growing in our school gardens to eat and share with our community. We sold some bunches of lettuce and spinach to our families and raised money for the Year 6 Graduation! The carrots, beans and beetroot are still growing and we can’t wait to taste them all.

Flight in Action

Our Year 6 unit of study on flight culminated in a Red Bull Paper Plane in-house competition. Students entered one of three categories: distance, aerobatics or air time. It proved to be a fantastic competition provoked by much research around the aerodynamics required and resulting in 4 winners and 3 runner ups.

Thank you to all involved for a wonderful celebration of the Sacrament of Confirmation in our Parish on Sunday.  Father Benedict Lee confirmed the Year 6 candidates, supported by Williams’ Uncle, Father Sean.  The mass itself was a very special, memorable occasion and the children were well prepared.

Through Confirmation, the Holy Spirit gives the children an increased ability to practice their Catholic faith in every aspect of their lives and to witness Christ in every situation.

Year 6 Camp

We had beautiful weather and wonderful friends for the 3 days at Ern Halliday Recreation Camp site last week.  Apart from some sleepless nights, it was non-stop action and activities throughout the day and night.  We were pampered with delicious food from our caterers at all meal times.  It was great to be with our class mates, to see them in a different situation and to watch with amazement the things they did which we were very surprising.  Many thanks to our parents for allowing us to go and for paying the camp fee.  A special thank you also to Mr Hunt, Mrs Bizzaca, Mrs Bottega, Mrs Cotton and Mr Beresford for their expertise, encouragement and advise during these very special days that will live for a very long time in our memories.
