Year 5/6 Camp
Our Year 5/6 children had a wonderful time at camp last week.  They stayed at The Ranch, in Cape Schanck on the Mornington Peninsula and participated in many different activities including a giant swing, crate stack, obstacle course, a dusk walk, toasting marshmallows on the camp fire and many more. It was wonderful to see students participate with great enthusiasm and and support each other outside of the classroom environment. Many students rate camp as one of their favourite Primary School experiences and one that they will have memories of forever. A big thanks to Mrs Defilippis and Mrs Giblett for attending the camp and looking after our students. Fr Ralph also joined the group on Thursday evening. He made the camp experience a special one by celebrating mass that included relevant prayers and reflections as well as a group sing-along.

2022 School Concert – Adventures in Wonderland
It was wonderful to see so many of our community members come along to Forest Hill Secondary College Theatre to support our students on Wednesday night, 19 October 2022.  The students were clearly very excited and proud of their performance.  As I stated on the night, Performing Arts is an important part of the school curriculum, as it helps to build student confidence and self-esteem. It also encourages students to develop their imagination and creativity. It also requires teamwork and cooperation, which are important life skills. Students certainly demonstrated all of this and more and they are to be congratulated for their magnificent performance. Our staff have also played a big part in the success of 'Adventures in Neverland'. They have been instrumental in preparing the students and have somehow managed to fit rehearsals into an already crowded curriculum. Without our teachers, learning support staff and administration staff, the concert would never have happened. A big thanks to Cathy Ellis from K & C Dance and Drama. Cathy was the concert director and the creative mastermind behind most of the choreography and script. Cathy has been working with students from St. Christopher’s for many, many years and she has a wonderful rapport with students and staff. This was again demonstrated when rehearsing for Adventure's in Neverland. On behalf of everyone, congratulations and thank you Cathy.

Footy Colours Day
On Wednesday 14 September 2022, all students took part in our Footy Colours Day. There was a wonderful sea of colours and many passionate supporters of a variety of football codes. Our Years Five and Six students organised some AFL activities for all students in the afternoon. Many students also enjoyed a pie lunch that was organised by the Parents' Association and Tracey in the office. We also raised money for the Fight Cancer Foundation.
