Tuesday February 12 was Shrove Tuesday (Pancake Day) and it was terrific to have the Lions' Club firing up the BBQ and cooking pancakes for the students and staff.
A big thank you to all the Lion's Club members who donned aprons and chef's hats as well as to our School Chaplain Kelly Whittaker for organising the delicious activity!
Breakfast Club is always a whirlwind of activity, but when I visited last week I was amazed to see how much of that activity is child-driven, not adult.
Our Chaplain Kellie Whittaker is to be congratulated for the way she's encouraged students to take on leadership roles and develop the community spirit that has our children making the Milo, toasting the bread, spreading the Vegemite and honey (but not together!) and serving the the hungry people.
Even more impressive is seeing our Year 1 and 2 students (and even a couple of Receptions) in there and involved. Well done to everybody!
'Jesus Racing' V8 driver Andrew Fisher visited our school last week to share his passion for driving and to challenge students to show courage when faced with life's big decisions.
Andrew talked about his driving - at Bathurst and the Clipsal - then invited students to look at some of the big decisions they'd have to make in their lives about topics such as drinking, speeding, drugs, alcohol, sex and God.
It was a thought provoking session from a personable speaker.
Afterwards Andrew signed posters and students had a closer look at the car.
You can find out more about Andrew and the Jesus Racing team on his website.
Last Tuesday 21st of February was ‘Shrove Tuesday’, therefore we held a Pancake day at our school.
We are extremely thankful to the ‘LIONS club’ for providing the BBQ and cooking the pancakes for us. We also had student helpers who I’d like to recognize as they were very helpful and used great initiative.
Thank you to Jesse Lawler, Nikaya Smith, Maddy Brind, and also others I may have forgotten
