Siena Catholic Primary School
This week, we came together as a school community to celebrate the incredible individuals who shape the future, our beloved teachers. World Teacher’s Day is a momentous occasion to honour and appreciate the dedication, passion, a tireless effort our educators invest in nurturing our children’s minds. To mark this special day, our P&F organised a delicious morning tea as a heartfelt gesture to express their gratitude for the positive impact teachers have on the students’ lives.
One of the touching highlights of the celebration was the beautiful messages penned by the children and families. These heartfelt notes and letters conveyed a deep gratitude for our teachers and testaments to the positive impact our teachers at Siena have on our school community.
Thank you God for the blessing our teachers are to our community.
Stella Maris Primary School
The Stella Maris School community has embraced Catholic Mission Month (Socktober) this year, responding to Pope Francis’ call to us all to be missionary people. Following the Head, Hearts and Hands approach, we enabled students to encounter mission in a holistic way: with a learning mind, an open heart and hands for action. This involved:
- formation – to develop an understanding of why we are called to be missionary and how we can make a difference through our attitudes and actions;
- focus – our Socktober Challenge day, complete with crazy socks and a soccer goal kick-off using home-made sock balls; and
- fundraising –to support local communities to provide better access to health care and education to their neighbours.
