Let's make butter!

Today during Science we undertook an experiment where we observed a liquid turning into a solid. What began as cream, went through the process of becoming butter, through the strength of our arms. We separated the buttermilk and the butter to finish the process. It was a lot of fun, although the smell wasn't nice at all!





















Some people even enjoyed drinking the milk at the end!

Easter Hat Parade


Imagination runs wild at our Easter Hat Parade. All the cool colourful hats are shown off in style as all grades walk around the school. There is lots of time and effort put in to these hats. It really pays off. All different ideas were put into hats, such as models of big eggs, rabbits and chickens. This all represents new life and the Ressurection of Christ. There was some very interesting hats made out of things at home.

Gold and fold mufti day


Dear parents,

As you may be aware, three of our staff members will be attending World Youth Day this year. Both Mr Mackey and Mr Lendvai will be stopping over in the Diocese of Tagbilaran, Phillipines to help rebuild their community.

This Friday we are asking students to make a donation to this missionary project by bringing in a note or coin in support of these pilgrims.

Your donations are greatly appreciated.
