Siena Catholic Primary School
Last week we celebrated Father’s Day by hosting a delicious breakfast for the dads and Grandads.
Again, many thanks to our wonderful P&F lead by the amazing Tanya Aspinall for the organisation and preparation of the Father’s Day Breakfast.
It was a wonderful morning full of laughter, sunshine, a burger, and a cuppa.
A Father’s Day liturgy followed led by Year 1 and Fr Will. The children prayed and asked God for his blessings on all dads. And of course, dad jokes were also part of the liturgy.
We hope all dads had a great day last Sunday. We ask God’s blessing on you all.
Stella Maris Primary School
There was great excitement this week, when our new Prep and Year 1 playground was opened for the first time.
While the children already have a mud-kitchen to explore; soccer fields to run around on; a cubby house; obstacle courses; quiet spaces; and sandpits to relish, this playground provides new sensory experiences to enjoy.
There’s a bumpy crocodile to roll on, a whale to sit on, a ‘spider web’ to climb, steering wheels to spin, a rope bridge to cross and colourful ‘drums’ to play, all on rubber soft-fall. We can see that our youngest little learners are set for lots of fun as they explore this new space.
Siena Catholic College
During the week we also wrapped up some significant sporting seasons and celebrated the breadth of our Music and co-curricular Academic endeavours.
Girls Rugby and girls and boys Water Polo, Basketball and AFL seasons concluded with closely fought games against some of our closest rivals. We achieved some nail-biting wins and heart-breaking defeats, but all team members put in 100% effort and were proud ambassadors for the College.
On Monday night, our choir, big band, guitar, and string ensembles presented at the annual Music Siena evening. Congratulations to all involved for what was a wonderful showcase of our Music program. On Thursday night, students presented a series of TED-Ed talks. These 5 to 7-minute presentations were highly entertaining and thought-provoking, covering topics including High Expectations, the Power of Self Belief and Disability Awareness.
