La Casa del Mare 

The students have been very productive this term in a number of ways: they have worked hard at completing the tasks put to them in the academic area and have made crafts and dog biscuits for the Xmas Market.

In the beginning of the term the students attend an excursion to the Western Australian Art Gallery where they participated in a guided tour of Sidney Nolan’s collection of paintings of Ned Kelly.

The students then did a replica of one of the paintings during the Friday art class.

They have been practising a variety of athletic activities during sport sessions to prepare them for the end of year sports day.

The students learnt how to make a bag in sewing class and learnt how to do marbling.

They attended dance lessons with one of our lovely past students Angie Boladeras for the Christmas concert.

A trainer from St John of God presented an interesting and informative talk on how to deal with a person who has suffered a snake bite. This included a reminder of how to act in an emergency.

We were fortunate enough to have Richard in for an incursion on geological science. His talk was very interesting and the children loved looking at the sample rocks as they glittered in the sun. We have also been donated a vast collection of rocks, thanks Kim Morcom. They have been well researched and have created a lot of interest.

To complete our botanical science studies we had Kirsty Watkins come in and teach the children how to paint various fruit using the “grid” method. Thank you so much the children gained skills and really enjoyed the activity.

The year 6 student attended the end of primary school speech night and really made me feel so proud of them. They overcame their feelings of nervousness and delivered their speeches with clarity and confidence and we wish them all the best for the future.

We hope you all have a great festive season, enjoy your family time together and trust you will return rested and ready for the New Year!
