Siena Catholic Primary School
National Day of Action Against Bullying and Violence
Our focus at Siena over the last few weeks has been on our school value of Integrity. “As people of Integrity we strive and act to make decisions based on the life and teachings of Jesus Christ.
John 18:12 ‘I am the light for the world. Follow me, and you won’t be walking in the dark. You will have the Light that gives Life’.
Respect falls out of Integrity and follows the footsteps of Jesus (doing the right thing even when nobody is watching) Jesus connected with everybody and treated them with respect.
Last Friday was the National Day of Action Against Bullying and Violence. Every child at Siena Primary tied an orange ribbon promising to behave with respect towards all people.
Every class also mounted a display in the Daintree about what Respect looks like sounds like and feels like. They looked very impressive, and it is our hope that these messages manifest in daily life of Siena.

Book Week celebrations had us all excited this week, with the theme for this year being: Read, Grow, Inspire.
A team of staff organised lots of engaging activities to take place both inside and outside the classroom across the week, to get us all exploring and talking about all things book related – stories, authors, illustrators, plots, characters, settings, problems and resolutions.
The favourite moment for the week for most of us though, had to be our Book Week Parade on Wednesday morning. We were amazed at the efforts and talents people used to come up with this year’s costumes. We’ll let these photos do the talking…

On Wednesday, our Year 10s joined Parishioners at the Community Mass. In his homily, Fr Will reminded us that we shouldn’t fall into the trap of comparing ourselves to others. Instead, he suggested, we should compare ourselves to who we were yesterday, so that we might invest in becoming good people in and for the world.
