NAIDOC DAY AT MSB
Our Year 5/6 students were lucky enough to attend NAIDOC Day at MSB at Herberton yesterday. The day started with a wonderful liturgy underneath the shade of a huge tree. It was beautiful. They experienced dances from different cultures. We saw some of our students in years gone by. Everyone was very friendly and happy. We enjoyed patty cakes and a delicious lunch followed by drumsticks, the children were very spoilt. Ben was lucky enough to win a prize from the TRC.
ST TERESA FEAST DAY CELEBRATIONS On the last day of Term 3, 17th September, we will celebrate our patron saint, St Therese Little Flower for her upcoming feast day which falls on 1st October.
We will begin the day with a whole school liturgy then students will move off into their assigned mixed groups for varied activities focused on St Therese in each of the classrooms. Siblings will be grouped together so that any families wishing to join in on the fun with us on the day can do so with their children altogether. We will continue our celebrations into lunch break with a free sausage sizzle and cake and at our final eating break students will receive an ice block. Please refer to our latest newsletter for a detailed schedule.
