BEACH DAY

March16

PICNIC BY THE BEACH

Every year, St Joseph’s feast is celebrated on the 19th of March. Students attend mass that day. To celebrate this occasion it was decided that a special event could be held to mark this day. The Principal, Staff and SRC unanimously agreed the beach would be an ideal place to visit each year. Weather wise, the month of March presents a fine atmosphere at the beach.

Excitement brewed as students flocked to school and attended a special assembly last Friday of Week 7, this term to celebrate the Feast of St Joseph. The whole school gathered as one big family at the beach in Edithvale. Parents too accompanied in cars to support the school in this special event. The weather was perfect and the children had an awesome time as they participated in rotational activities and free play.

Many activities were planned for the students – beach volley ball, free play, building sandcastles, cricket and talk time with the rescue squad. The students rotated from one activity to another after a session of 25 minutes.

Melbourne Goal Excursion

November25

The students have been studying about Law and Order and the role of rules and laws in govern society.
Through a guided tour students understood how law and order was enforced in prison cells of the past.
The Old Melbourne Gaol is a museum and former prison located in Russell Street, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. It consists of a bluestone building and courtyard, and is located next to the old City Police Watch House and City Courts buildings. It was first constructed starting in 1839, and during its operation as a prison between 1842 and 1929, it held and executed some of Australia’s most notorious criminals, including bushranger Ned Kelly and serial killer Frederick Bailey Deeming. In total, 133 people were executed by hanging. Though it was used briefly during World War II, it formally ceased operating as a prison in 1924; with parts of the gaol being incorporated into the RMIT University, and the rest becoming a museum.

PARLIAMENT VISIT

November10

The Parliament of Victoria is made up of the Crown, the Legislative Council and the Legislative Assembly.

The Crown means the Queen. In Victoria, the Queen is represented by the Governor.

The Legislative Council is sometimes referred to as the upper House and the Legislative Assembly is sometimes called the lower House. The terms ‘House’, ‘Chamber’ and ‘legislature’ are often used interchangeably to refer to either the Legislative Council or the Legislative Assembly. Sometimes we shorten the names to the Council and the Assembly.

In Australia we have three levels of Government: federal, state and local. The Parliament of Victoria is the state parliament and makes laws for the State of Victoria.

The Government is formed by the party that has the most number of seats in the Legislative Assembly. The leader of that party becomes the Premier of Victoria.

Elections are usually held in Victoria every four years on the last Saturday in November.

20141027_103917-2l52m6v-300x225

Red is the colour used in the furnishings and fabrics throughout the Legislative Council Chamber, reflecting the customs of the Parliament of the United Kingdom – specifically, the House of Lords. The use of red, found in the Upper Houses of most parliaments in the Westminster tradition, is attributed to the status of red as a royal colour.

Celebrating Book Week-Excursion to Melbourne Museum

August25

The theme for 2014 Book Week was “Connect to Reading: Reading to Connect”.

20140820_130820-wcjsh4-300x225

The landscapes have a history.

20140820_131359-2ltd3u2-300x225

Victoria’s tall forests are as much a product of human activity as they are a work of nature.

20140820_131923-r5paid-300x225 (1)

Students had the opportunity to view the dinosaur exhibits

It was undoubtedly a great day of learning and making connections for us. The students felt very priviledged to be part of this experience. They concluded that the museum is a great platform for us to view the rich cultural heritage of Victoria. It was indeed a great opportunity to see at first hand the contemporary artworks of the First People of Victoria.

20140820_104553-1xes4qj-300x225

The exhibition provided a variety of rich opportunities to engage and connect deeply with the First Peoples of Victoria and their cultural history.
