Our Ash Wednesday Mass marks the beginning of the Season of Lent. The ashes remind us it is a season of penance, reflection, and fasting which prepares us for Christ’s Resurrection on Easter Sunday, through which we attain redemption.

Swim Trials

With the heat of the Perth summer it was a great day to be at Scarborough pool!
The children from Years 3, 4 & 5 not only got to cool off, but the swim trials also gave them the chance to put their names forward for the swim squad and get ready for the upcoming Guild Carnival and the Interschool Swimming Carnival.

Going Green with Our Drawing

Click the thumbnail to view the gallery.

If you visited the Art Room this week you would be easily mistaken for thinking it has become a plant nursery. An eclectic assortment of vases and jars were filled with cuttings of greenery from around the school and garden. These were used as a stimulus for our drawing activities and putting in the practice of ‘Contour Drawing’ which helps develop students’ observation and drawing skills. Careful attention to detail and recreating the organic lines in the leaves and flowers resulted in some excellent still life artworks. I was also particularly impressed to see students tackle the challenging task of drawing the many succulents in our outdoor space.
Keep your eyes peeled for the work on display soon.
