I Today the year 5 and 6 students participated in a first aid course run by Life Saving Victoria. The students had the opportunity to learn about and practise basic life saving procedures using DRSABCD.
It was a great way to introduce our students to basic emergency situations and what to do to protect their safety and ensure the safety of others.
Hoping you have all enjoyed a beautiful sunny weekend.
Just a reminder that tomorrow we will be walking to Our Lady's PS and will leave before 9am.
You will need to wear your sports uniform. Shorts may be an idea as it looks as though it will be 26 degrees.
Recess snack and lunch to be brought in a small back pack. (Not School bag) Some of you may wish to place your lunch together with a friend so we reduce the amount we carry especially since we're walking.
DON'T FORGET HATS. We will have suncream handy also.
That should cover it. Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow.
Today we had the opportunity to meet and listen to Andrew who has been the leader of the Chin refugee community from Burma. He spoke strongly about the need for respect and equality of all people including minority groups. This connected well with the learning that has taken place in Year 6 throughout the term with the African American civil rights movement and the Australian indigenous Freedom rides in the 1960's.
Andrew spoke briefly about the recent history of Burma and what led to the changes in Burma and the refugees fleeing their country. He spoke about the challenges and difficulties his people face as refugees in Malaysia.
Thank you to Laurie for organising the visit and supporting our learning.
Today we were privileged to celebrate Ivan's confirmation. Bishop Mark Edwards presided over the celebration and together with Father Barry made it a special and warm celebration with family and friends.
Ivan and his friends in year 6 enjoyed themselves as the celebration continued in the multipurpose room. It was really a special occasion and we are looking forward to seeing Ivan again as we all move towards our graduation preparation and celebrations.
Thank you to everyone involved for making it such a special celebration.
