Pentecost Sunday
School News 2

Siena Catholic Primary School

Siena Primary is always a hive of learning, activities and fun.

Last week, in the Year 1 Library lesson, Mrs Tonkes, read the students a book by Jez Alborough called, ‘Fix It Duck’. The children love the characters in his books, and they are always full of rhyming words. After the lesson the children enjoyed their own construction activity with tap tap boards.
Continuing the plethora of activities and opportunities offered at Siena, some of our students in Year 5 and 6 represented the school in the QC Netball cup. All three teams demonstrated sportsmanship, skills and joy at playing against other Catholic schools at the carnival. The Year 6 team were undefeated. Whilst the Year 5 team and a mixed Year 6 team improved throughout the day. 
Many thanks to the staff who gave up countless hours of their own time coaching, organising, managing, travelling and looking after the teams. Well Done Team Siena!!

 

 

Stella Maris Primary School 

There’s no doubt that the energy, joy and inquisitive nature of our Under 8s can be both contagious and awe-inspiring.  Last Friday, to close off Under 8’s Week, we had a special day to celebrate and inspire these special little learners.  A large number of super-volunteers supported our dedicated and passionate early years staff to put on a wide range of activities to cater for all sorts of interests and abilities, under this year’s theme:  Play – You, Me & Our Communities!  Activities included dress-ups, all sorts of construction, fence-painting, bowling, nature craft, skipping, drawing, nail-painting, face-painting, bean-bag challenges, playground fun, bubbles, dancing, story-time, playdough, an obstacle course, sandpit play, mindfulness, music corner, small world play and home-corner.  Who wouldn’t want to be Under 8?

 

 

 

Siena Catholic College  

 

With two year levels out of school it’s been a fairly quiet week on campus. Our Year 11 students were on camp for three days, while Year 10 students were on Work Experience for the week.

Work Experience has long been an opportunity for students to dip their toes into the world of work. With a wide variety of options to choose from, students were able to explore careers including engineering and construction, real estate, teaching, childcare, tourism, aviation, allied health, veterinary studies, retail and information technologies. The students were appreciative of the opportunity to explore what was really involved in working in their area of interest.

Our Year 11 students braved the cold, cold mornings in Helidon for their ANZAC-themed camp experience. All present were taken well out of their comfort zones. They were both challenged and empowered to explore the themes of courage, mateship, perseverance and sacrifice. Congratulations to all who attended – you have certainly honed your teamwork and leadership skills.

Year 9 students were present at the Community Mass on Wednesday morning, where they commemorated the solemnity of Our Lady, Help of Christians. In his homily, Fr Will encouraged the students to pray – wherever they are – in order to direct their lives towards God.
