Our Lady of the Sa­cred Heart School

Campaspe News - - AROUND THE SCHOOLS -

AT OUR Lady of the Sa­cred Heart School we ed­u­cate the whole child in a learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment where team­work and col­lab­o­ra­tion is cen­tral to stu­dents reach­ing their po­ten­tial. In or­der to achieve this goal, fam­i­lies, stu­dents and staff are of­fered many op­por­tu­ni­ties that sup­port stu­dents to learn and grow. OLSH is a part of the Cam­paspe Clus­ter of small schools. This pro­vides many op­por­tu­ni­ties for stu­dents to be in­volved in a va­ri­ety of events, in­clud­ing divi­sion netball and foot­ball, camps, as well as learn­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties such as a sci­ence day.

Grade 3 and 4 stu­dents at­tended Camp Cu­rum­bene for their an­nual camp. They par­tic­i­pated in ac­tiv­i­ties such as archery, ca­noe­ing, in­door rock climb­ing and many more ac­tiv­i­ties. The high­light of the camp would have been time on the fly­ing fox. Stu­dents showed great re­silience and courage as they stepped out of their com­fort zone for some ac­tiv­i­ties. Great thanks to Mrs Caine for at­tend­ing the camp and mak­ing sure all stu­dents were able to man­age life away from home (some for the first time).

On Tues­day, Au­gust 7, OLSH was lucky to have a visit from Tom and his flight sim­u­la­tor from the Royal Fly­ing Doc­tor Service. Stu­dents made new dis­cov­er­ies about John Flynn, the man who es­tab­lished the service, and we looked at how the service has evolved into some­thing amaz­ing over the years.

Wed­nes­day, Au­gust 22, saw stu­dents and staff dressed as their favourite book characters for Book Week 2018! The school was full of colour, cre­ativ­ity and ex­cited stu­dents. Af­ter the dress-up pa­rade in the se­nior room all classes headed to the El­more Li­brary to join with pri­mary school and pre-school stu­dents. We lis­tened to sto­ries and did some fun ac­tiv­i­ties. A huge thank you to the fam­i­lies who joined in the pa­rade and put in so much time and ef­fort to the amaz­ing cos­tumes!

The high­light for this term would have to be the mid­dle and se­nior class ex­cur­sion to see The Wizard of Oz at the Re­gent The­atre in Mel­bourne. Stu­dents read The Wizard of Oz novel, watched the DVD and re­alised they were in for some­thing quite spec­tac­u­lar when they vis­ited the Re­gent The­atre in Mel­bourne on Tues­day, July 24. They trav­elled by bus, stop­ping at Kil­more for a snack un­der shel­ter from the cold and the rain be­fore David, their ter­rific bus driver, drove them to Fitzroy Gar­dens in the city where the sun was shin­ing and the grass looked as green as the Emer­ald City! Stu­dents and staff ate lunch and played in front of Cook’s Cot­tage — the old­est build­ing in Aus­tralia! The live per­for­mance was sen­sa­tional. It kept every­one cap­ti­vated with the singing, danc­ing, beau­ti­ful cos­tumes, spe­cial ef­fects and a fa­mil­iar tale that we all grew to love back in the class­rooms at OLSH.

The staff get into the spirit of Book Week - Miss McCormick, Mrs Price, Mrs Caine, Mrs An­gove, Mrs Frew, Mrs Kul­miye, Mrs Carty and Mrs Mur­ray. Thank you to Hay­den for stand­ing in as our Tin Man.
