Remembrance Day
Last Thursday students from Years 5 & 6 shared information about Remembrance Day which included a ceremony that involved the last post and a minute's silence. Students learnt about the history of Remembrance Day and its link to the signing of an Armistice at the end of the First World War. After WWI poppies grew in the battlefields of Europe and today badges and pins are sold to raise money for returned service men and women and their families. All students participated respectfully and hopefully have a deeper understanding of this important day.   Fundraising Champs! Thanks to those students that assisted with selling Remembrance Day Poppy pins, badges and wristbands. This helps to raise awareness and funds for military personnel and their families. Well done to Adam Lewis and Jessie May Silvester (Prep), who did a tremendous job selling relevant items at the crossing. Adam said that he had 102 customers!!

St. Christopher’s Art Show 2019
There was a tremendous sense of pride and rightly so, that was evident on the faces of everyone who attended our Art Show at Thursday night. The exceptional array and quality of the art works that were so artistically and creatively displayed in keeping with the Dr Seuss theme, was amazing. The works included two and three dimensional pieces as well as some class collaborative productions.The Opening Night was very well attended and it was wonderful to see so many of our families there. All students are to be congratulated for their hard work throughout the year. A special thanks to all classroom teachers to put in extra time and effort to assist students and make our Art Show wonderful once again. Thanks also to those parents who assisted with some of the painting of boxes over the last few weeks and with serving tea and coffee during the show. Thanks to Mrs Bamber and Mrs Cook for assisting with some organisational matters and welcoming families on the Opening Night. Finally, to Mrs Suzan Atyimas, we thank you for your vision and direction and the incredible amount of time you committed to once again help students to not only develop their artistic skills, but ensure that the Art Show was such a special event.
