Today, we were lucky enough to have Giulia and Claudia (two of our Praying Mantises) to lead us in our daily meditation. The girls spent some time putting a lot of thought and consideration into creating this PowerPoint, and leading the meditation. Well done girls! It was lovely to see you taking the initiative to do something so lovely for your classmates! Thank you.
This Sunday it will be Pentecost! On the day of Pentecost, the Holy Spirit came upon the disciples and they spoke many different languages, and tongues of fire appeared above their heads. In preparation for Pentecost, we completed several different learning activities and learnt much more about this special event and the significance of it in Catholicism.
As a part of our learning, Miss Power asked us to find the story of Pentecost in the Bible. This was a tricky task, because we didn't know where it would be! We discussed what we knew about Pentecost - it happened after Jesus died, and there were flames on people's heads. We also knew that the New Testament is all about Jesus' ministry on earth, and the Gospel's of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John tell us all about Jesus' life on earth. Since we knew that Pentecost happened AFTER Jesus' life, we predicted that the passage might be at the end of one of the Gospels, or in a book that came after the Gospels in the Bible.
The rest got a bit complicated, as there were many ways you could locate a passage in the bible. So we put together a PowerPoint slideshow of instructions that you can follow if you ever need to locate a passage in the Bible - a handy skill! We hope you enjoy and find it useful!
On Thursday 2nd May, the grade 6s, 5M, 5/6D and all the Prep classes got together for some fun! We started off with our tabloid sports activities, which we had so much fun playing together. This was followed by a delicious sausage sizzle. Yummo! Check out the iMovie trailer and the feature film PhotoStory below for a taste of the fun we had on the day!
