Junior School Update

The Year 2 students have
been very busy over the last few weeks, continuing to extend what they had
learnt in Year 1; including the 5 Ws (When, Who, Where, What and Why) with
Recount writing during our Literacy lessons and recognising the value of 3
digit numbers in Numeracy.
On Wednesday, 21 March, Fr Bona came to visit the students and discussed a special time in the
Church’s calendar – LENT. He spoke
about how Lent is a preparation for the feast of Easter and reminded the
children to think of it as a time to Leave Every Negative Thing. Fr Bona
mentioned that negative things include bad habits, such as not listening to our
parents or teachers and not caring for those around us. 
Wednesday 21st
March was also Harmony Day. Harmony Day first started in 1999 and has been
celebrated on this date ever since. The central message of Harmony Day is that
‘everyone belongs’ and this reminds us that everyone is unique. It is a time
for all Australians to remember and respect our diverse cultural backgrounds,
and to share what we have in common. The Year 2s made Harmony Day cylinders
representing 3 Australian environments and paper figures illustrating the rich
variety of people living in Australia.
We hope everyone has a lovely Easter.
