2019 FIAT Term 2

Faith in Action Presentation: This term, as a part of our school Mission Goal, each grade has had the opportunity to unpack the scripture passage John 13:34-35. Not only have the students been able to identify the key message of the passage but they have also been able to reflect the message through their actions. After Recess on Friday June 28, each grade will be presenting their response to the whole school. The children who are a part of our Faith In Action team (FIAT) will be leading this presentation with Miss Sharleen Espiritu (our FIAT leader). Everyone is warmly invited to this presentation to witness how each grade has responded to this Scripture.

2019 Stage 3 Bathurst Camp

In Week 1 of Term 2 on the Wednesday, Thursday and Friday Stage 3, their teachers and some parents travelled to Hill End. The camp served as an entry event for the History and Geography Project Based Learning Unit - “The people that shape a nation”. We visited the Scenic Railway at Echo Point, Little Hartley Court House, the historic township of Hill End and the Jenolan Caves. Along the way we saw evidence of early settlers and heard stories about life in the 1800’s. It was both an interesting and fun trip. See the photos in the Gallery.

2019 Makey Makeys at OLOL

In Term 1 this year in Creative Arts lessons, students in Year 2-6 have been exploring coding and being creative with the Makey-Makey tool. It's been very exciting learning how to apply this new form of technology to projects. Year 2 created interactive artworks, Years 3-6 had the option of making a musical instrument, game controller or dance board. The older students even used the coding program Scratch to create their own games! It was an amazing experience and we look forward to exploring this again soon. Clare Willemse.

2019 Project Compassion Day

On Monday 1st April each grade participated in Ks for Caritas for Project Compassion Day. Each grade completed an obstacle course to experience the kilometres people from around the world would cover to fetch water, food or go to school to provide for their needs. For example, one of the stations involved the students walking a beanbag on their head from one end of the basketball to experience what it could have been like to bring water to a family. It was a successful but a rewarding day as the students were able to reflect on the difficulties that people have around the world experience for their everyday life. Read more...
