Specialists – Art Lessons

The students have been engaging in some wonderful Art lessons over the past few weeks to help support them to create a mask or a prop for their Book Parade. Have a look at some of the amazing creations we have seen.

Virtual Book Parades

It is quite sad that we couldn’t celebrate Book Week with a Book Parade on the top court at school, but we weren’t going to let a pandemic get in the way of us having fun! This year our Book Parades went Virtual with all boys dressing up as a character from a book that fit with the theme, Old Worlds, New Worlds, Other Worlds.

We were absolutely blown away by the creativity of the boys and their families! What you all managed to create without leaving your home is nothing short of impressive. Seeing the boys dressed up with smiles on their faces sure made for a highlight in this very unusual term. Please enjoy some of the photos below.

Time For More – Comic Book Strips

The students from Pre-Kindergarten to Year 2 have been taking part in our comic strip competition in Time For More as part of our Book Week celebrations. There have been some excellent ideas coming through as boys share their stories set in Old Worlds, New Worlds, Other Worlds. If your son hasn’t had a chance to submit his yet, he can still do so via Seesaw.
