Fiver for a Farmer Day
On Wednesday 7th November, students from St. Christopher's participated in a 'Fiver for a Farmer' Day. This involved each student donating $5 and dressing up as farmers and taking up in a number of activities. These included a gumboot throwing competition, a three legged race, a barn dance and a scavenger hunt. The purpose of the day was to raise money to support Aussie farmers doing it tough due to the drought. This event also raised awareness of the impact that drought is having on many parts of Australia as well as farmers and their families. The idea to organise the event was initiate by three Year 4 girls, Emily, Amy and Chrislyn, who after learning about the drug during class, were motivated to help Aussie farmer. They communicate their idea to the Student Representative Council who took it on board and worked with each class to determine the activities for the day. As well as raising much needed funds for others in the wider community, students had a lot of fun.

School Concert 2018 “ALADDIN’S ADVENTURES”
It was wonderful to see many of our school community, including Father Ralph and Father Pat, in attendance at Forest Hill Secondary College to witness what was an incredible performance from our students on Thursday, 18th October. The joy and confidence on their faces was wonderful to see and we are proud of every single one of them. Every student had a speaking, singing and dancing part which made the show very special. It was evident that they were well rehearsed and that great time and effort had been put in preparing them. A special thanks to Cathy Ellis from K&C Performing Arts, who did an amazing directing and organising not only on the concert's night but much of the preparation undertaken by our school. Performing arts is an important part of our curriculum and provide students with the opportunity to develop their creative skills, perseverance, self confidence and to work collaboratively with others. The 'Aladdin's Adventures' highlighted the benefit of this part of the curriculum.

Fathers’ Day/Special Friends Breakfast
It was wonderful to see many dads, grandfathers, uncles and special friends at our annual Father's Day Special Friends Breakfast on Friday, 31st August. This event provided many our students with the opportunity to share some time with those important to them, in our school environment. Those who attended also enjoyed a wonderful breakfast spread including fresh coffee, muffins, croissants and other pastries. The large number who attended also enjoyed socialising with others from our school community. A big thanks to our Parents' Association, especially Julie Hepburn, Monika Wells, Corie Bray and Eliza Koro. They did a massive amount of work to ensure that this event was successful and without them events like this would not take place. Thanks also to others who assisted with preparing the croissants on Thursday evening (Linda Pham) and those who helped to clean up after the breakfast. The mass after the breakfast was also attended by some of our fathers and a number of students shared some special thoughts about their father, grandfather or a special friend.
