Whole School Excursion to The Melbourne Zoo
On Monday 11 November 2019, our whole school went on an excursion to Melbourne Zoo. This was a wonderful opportunity to share a learning experience together. Once again the behavior of St Christopher's students was exemplary. All students should be very proud of the way they participated and followed instructions. Lots of learning took place as the students were very engaged and enjoyed listening to the rangers and education staff at the Zoo. Teachers have used this experience to support learning back at school. Students have used their new knowledge and experience to support their writing and other projects. Thanks to all the staff who went along and organised this event.

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!!

The major change to the Emmaus Enrolment Policy is that Non-Catholic children residing in a priority parish and attending a Catholic school will now be considered ahead of Catholic children residing in a priority parish and attending a government or independent school.
