Creative Arts Term 4 Filming

This term in Creative Arts lessons, students in Years 1-6 are undertaking filming activities. Years 1 and 2 are making stick puppet plays for "Where the Wild Things Are" and filming them and editing with iMovie. Students in Year 3 and 4 are learning how to make Stop Motion Films. Year 5 are writing scripts and making undercover news reports with iMovie and Year 6 are filming for their end of school Yearbook. It's been very exciting seeing the enthusiasm of the students with these tasks. Looking forward to seeing the final results!

2018 Infants Fruit Salad Rainbows

As part of their PD Health lessons last term, infants students were learning about healthy foods and making good food choices in their lessons with Mrs. Brogden. To celebrate this learning Mrs. Brogden organised and spent many hours cutting up colourful fresh fruits and vegetables for the children to make their own rainbows. This was a wonderful experience for all the children. Thank you to Mrs. Brogden for your dedication and hard work for this great healthy living activity.

On Thursday October 25, four children accompanied Mrs Bawden and Miss Espiritu to the annual Education Mass (formerly known as the Mission Mass) at St Patrick’s Cathedral Parramatta.

They were inspired by the works and exhibitions of other schools and got some great ideas to share with our social justice team.

Lisa Brereton, Julie Abdilla, Rebecca Clark, Sonia Holmes, Megan Shawcross, Brian Galea, Janine and John Ballment, Melissa Fahey, Melinda Sammut, Karyn Dsouza and Katherine Fountain.
