KISS and make up at our disco

Our Lady of the Sa­cred Heart

Campaspe News - - NEWS -

Con­nect­ing to the lo­cal com­mu­nity On Mon­day, Novem­ber 12 the Ju­nior Class went on a walk­ing ex­cur­sion around El­more. They found clues and an­swered many of their ques­tions about El­more, such as: How old is the church? When was the train sta­tion built? How many chil­dren go to El­more Pri­mary School? How tall is the wa­ter tower? Stu­dents also en­joyed a visit to the wa­ter tower and Cam­paspe Run.


Last week, the grade 6 stu­dents hosted the school disco with an 80s and 90s theme. Stu­dents (and fam­i­lies) put a great deal of ef­fort into some spec­tac­u­lar cos­tumes. Ev­ery­one looked amaz­ing and had a blast groov­ing to the clas­sic dance tunes. A big thank you to the grade 6 stu­dents for or­gan­is­ing this fun event.


Deter­mi­na­tion, mo­ti­va­tion and en­thu­si­asm de­scribe the way the stu­dents ap­proached their first ses­sions of gym. Stu­dents climbed on the bars, com­pleted tuck jumps and star jumps on the long tram­po­line and bal­anced on the beams. They proved their abil­ity to climb (ru­ral kids) and were al­lowed to work their way to the top of the rope.

Mes­sen­ger dogs

Proudly brought to us by the Vic­to­rian Gov­ern­ment as part of the ANZAC Cen­te­nary, the pri­mary school road­show Mes­sen­ger Dogs – Tales of

WWI took stu­dents on a jour­ney through our 100-year-old his­tory. OLSH stu­dents were joined by the El­more Pri­mary School and El­more Preschool to meet the fourth di­vi­sion ‘mes­sen­ger dogs’ Nell, Trick and Bul­let and see WWI through their eyes. Their tales fea­tured courage, deter­mi­na­tion, en­durance and mate­ship on the front line work­ing along­side the Aus­tralian Im­pe­rial Force. Re­spon­si­ble for car­ry­ing mes­sages from the front line back to head­quart- ers their sto­ries some­times go un­recog­nised – but to those who served more than 100 years ago, and even those who serve to­day, dogs play an im­por­tant role and not just as loyal com­pan­ions. Visit to Sa­cred Heart Cathe­dral Stu­dents and staff from OLSH were treated to a spe­cial tour of the Sa­cred Heart Cathe­dral in Bendigo last week, led by Fa­ther Cal­dow. As a part of the term 4 re­li­gious ed­u­ca­tion units, Fa­ther Cal­dow gra­ciously led ev­ery­one through the third largest Cathe­dral in Aus­tralia. Stu­dents and staff sat up­stairs where the choir usu­ally sit and were privy to some spec­tac­u­lar views from up high. Fa­ther Cal­dow ex­plained the sig­nif­i­cance of each chapel, he turned off alarms so the kids could ex­plore the al­tar and take a close look of the Bishop’s spe­cial chair and they even cracked open the safe to see some of the most mag­nif­i­cent chal­ices.

Darcy, Cody, Rory and Leo as KISS.
