Years 3-6 Camp

The Years 3-6 Camp was held at Araluen Lutheran Camp, Anglesea last week.  By all reports, the students willingly engaged in all activities and made the most of the three days out in the fresh air.  Students were kept busy with surfing, boogie boarding, paddle boarding, bike riding and much more!  It was a jam-packed camp and the students were exhausted by Friday afternoon. 

Here are a couple of comments to give parents an idea of what took place:  

Kamden:  My favourite activities at camp were bike riding and boogie boarding. I met some boys from St. Michael's, they were really nice to Will and I. I liked the chips and flat head, but it was not better than dad's. The eggs were a bit sloppy.

Something that was annoying was the girls ding dong ditching us and Pat turned on the lights so we woke up at 1 am!!   I loved camp!

Quinn:  I loved camp because of the activities. All of the activities were my favourite but the one I loved most was paddle boarding.  Stand up paddle boarding was my favourite because you got to stand up, unlike canoeing.  It was great to stand up because you got to fall in and you could wobble the board so the  other person falls off the back.

Camp was also great for me as I struggled at times but I got through it.  My struggles were going to sleep at night and also canoeing. But I enjoyed it.

F-2 News

Welcome to St Mary's Genevieve and Skyler!  We love having you here with us at school.

Last week, while the Years 3-6 students were on camp, the F-2 students had the school to themselves.

Adelaide: Louise made us work hard every day but we had a fun ending each day too.  We had a special treat lunch and movie on Wednesday; we celebrated Skyler's birthday on Thursday with cupcakes and her mum Jess even painted our faces! 

Jeremiah:  Genevieve was a butterfly, Adelaide had a flower crown, Skyler was a cheetah and I was a dinosaur.

Genevieve:  On Friday we had donuts and made lanterns for the Lunar New Year. Each animal had a year named after them by the Chinese Emperor by winning a race across the river.

Skyler:  The lucky colour for the Lunar New Year is red.

Thank you Jess and Billie for painting our faces.
