St Madeleine School
The Olden Days Year One experienced what school was like for their Great Great Grandparents when they visited Rouse Hill Farm. Students dressed in period costume – straw hats, plus cotton pinafores for the girls and sailor collars or coats for the boys. They then met their schoolmistress to begin the school day. After saluting the British flag, the class is marched into the 1880s schoolroom.
SES Visits State Emergency Services visited St Madeleine’s Year 6 to discuss the important role they play when Australia experiences natural disasters. The Year 6 were able to experience a little of what is to be a SES volunteer.
Let’s Forgive Year 4 prepared and organised a beautiful liturgy to celebrate the importance of forgiveness in our society. They told stories
and led the parents in a journey to rediscover that God loves each one of us and is always ready to forgive us. Their prayer was encouraged all who were present to share that forgiveness with family and friends and the whole community. Thank you Year 4.
Outdoor Mathematics Stage 2 took their maths lesson outside last week when they were studying length. Their task was to measure how far their paper plane flew and how long it took to land. Great discussions followed about the different methods of recording and how important it was to use a formal method of measuring both distance and time.
