What do you think about the world and justice when you see these videos? How do you feel? Children can be heroes and make a difference too! How would you like to make a difference?

Justice & Dignity from Matilda

May30

“Just because you find that life’s not fair it
Doesn’t mean that you just have to grin and bear it
If you always take it on the chin and wear it
Nothing will change

Even if you’re little, you can do a lot, you
Mustn’t let a little thing like, ‘little’ stop you
If you sit around and let them get on top,
You might as well be saying
You think that it’s okay
And that’s not right!
And if not… that’s not right
You need to put it right” 

Matilda in the Roald Dahl

*We are learning about justice and dignity in our Religion Education lessons. What does the quote mean to you?

Miss Murphy Hand Delivered Our Letters to the Prime Minister

September28

In light of our Inquiry topic ‘Who Lived Here First?’ our class wrote letters to Prime Minister Malcom Turnbull outlining reasons as to why we should change the Australian flag mainly because the flag does not represent all Australians especially the Indigenous Australians. This morning our teacher got to hand deliver our letters! It was a pleasure to meet you Prime Minister Turnbull and we thank you for your time for reading our letters and we await your reply!

Change the Australian Flag??

June14

In our class we have been discussing the Australian flag and we have decided that it is time to change the Australian flag since it does not acknowledge the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders who are the original owners of this country. Click on the video above to listen or read about the Behind the News article.

What do you think about the Australian flag?  Do you think the flag represents all the people of Australia? Should the flag be changed? Please share your opinion with us! Stay tuned for photos of our new Australian flag designs!

Stand in My Shoes – Developing Our Empathy

June8

Today for our circle time WALT (We Are Learning To develop our empathy). First, our teacher showed us some funny and fancy shoes and asked us how we would feel wearing someone else’s shoes. We listened to the story ‘Stand in My Shoes’ by  Bob Sornson that taught us about empathy and showed us many ways to show empathy. We then discussed different situations and identified the feelings people might feel (using emoticons/emojis) and then we came up with solutions of what we could do to show empathy. Lastly, we got to try on some of the shoes and wear them during recess and class time. Today was even more special because during our circle time we had Mrs Russell and some special visitors from St John Vianney’s in Parkdale stop by. Thanks to Mrs Russell, Natasha, Kerry, Fleur and Shane for coming to share our circle time with us!

What did you learn about EMPATHY?  How did it feel when you tried on or wore someone else’s shoes? How can you show empathy at home? At school? To someone you don’t know?

Circle Time – Yoga and Meditation Session

May17

After reading a picture fiction entitled Courage To Fly (about a little girl who was scared to try new things, take risks and be out of her comfort zone) we discussed the times we felt afraid to take risks in our own life then we had a mini yoga session and meditation! We felt very relaxed and peaceful afterwards! 🙏

 

ANZAC Day – Lest We Forget

April27

To honour past and present Australian soldiers we have been reading some stories about WWI and WWII and we have been learning about some important symbols such as poppies and medals. We also did some art activities and wrote cards to give to war veterans on ANZAC Day. Below is some of our artwork.  

Lest we forget!

Jesus in the Desert

March1

What does this video make you think? What do you wonder about Jesus’ journey? What do you want to give or give up during Lent?

What do the words mean by “Get away from it all?”
What does it mean when it says “But I’m back?”
