Book Week this year had quite a different look due to Remote Learning. This didn't stop students and staff from dressing up and having fun with the theme: Old Worlds, New Worlds, Other Worlds.
Term 2, 2020 - Remote Learning
Let's cook - create - move!
'Together we cook!'
We were lucky to have Chef Audra show us some delicious recipes to cook. We even had guest appearances by some very well known celebrity chefs.
'Together we dance!'
It was time to move. And move we did! We all know how important it is to move and exercise so we stay well, especially as we learn from home.
'Together we create!'
We were lucky to spend time on learning about and improving our lettering skills. The results are beautiful! We look forward to seeing some of these skills on posters and in workbooks.
'Together we head outdoors!'
The big wide world is just outside our front and back doors. We had lots of time to notice the 'busy-ness' of life in our front and back yards.

First Day of Foundation
'Ready, set, go!'
Here we have the 2020 Foundation students - embarking on their education journey, at Orientation Day, then First Day of School.
Beginning of the Year Mass
'Together we pray'.
The school banner and the message stick were important icons at the Beginning of the Year Mass. New Prayer Boxes for the classrooms were also blessed and distributed. It was a very prayerful and reverent way to begin the new school year.
Very early in Term 1, all senior students attended a Leadership Conference. They formed working groups to identify leadership qualities. After workshopping different types of leadership models, they chose a role, and shared their reasons why they deserved the role and what they could bring to it.

Carols on the Green - December
An amazing opportunity for our students to showcase their talents, and share a magical Christmas evening with their families, was held last week. After a very warm day (39 degrees), the relief of a very mild cool change added to the atmosphere. A well-stocked Mission Market, filled with handmade goodies and run by the Senior students, helped raise funds for local and global charities. The North Children's Choir, led by Lucy, began the evening. Each Learning Community then followed by singing traditional Christmas carols and songs in English and Italian. Santa and his elf visited as well, and the sausage sizzle proved to be very popular. Thank you to everyone who contributed to make the evening so successful!
Book Fair - November
Whoo hoo! Well done to everyone involved at our recent Book Fair. We exceeded our goal to raise funds to add to our library resources. We got lots of AMAZING books for our school.
Thank you to all the families who visited and helped out.
'I Tarantati' - November
Italian Music and Dance Incursion
With the voices of Rosa and Filippo, to the accompaniment of an accordion, a flute, tambourines and Rosa's nimble feet, we were taken on a trip around Italy in song and dance. Finally, we learnt 'The Tarantella', a story and dance from Italy's south.

Book Week - 'Reading is my secret power.'
Dressing up as a Super hero for the Book Week Parade at assembly was great fun. Two authors, Marisa Alo and Kym Lardner, also shared their ideas and inspiration with the budding authors of St Francis Xavier School.
Grandparents Day & Tree Planting Day
Grandparents, and other important people in our lives, came and helped us with some fun activities. As the final activity celebrating Grandparents Day and Tree Planting Day, each class planted a tree.
100 Days of Prep
We celebrated our first 100 days of school. We did lots of activities that used the number '100'.
The Arts Centre - 3/4 Excursion
At the Arts Centre in Melbourne, we enjoyed the musical play called 'The Red Tree'. This is based on a book by Shaun Tan.
