Prep 100 Days!
The Preps had a wonderful day celebrating their 100th day at school on Thursday 27th July. They came to school dressed up as though they were 100 years old, while Miss Curtis and Melinda came dressed as school children.
In the morning the Preps had four rotations of activities. These included drawing 100 gumballs onto a gumball machine, playing race to 100 with a dice, creating a ‘100 days smarter’ crown and drawing a picture of something they would buy for $100. Each student brought in 100 items and spent time counting them individually and in small groups. The Preps then investigated who could make the longest line with their 100 items. Throughout these activities the Preps were also challenged to add a word they know to a large poster of 100 words.
After lunch there was a special assembly where each Prep was presented with special certificates and presents from every year level. To conclude the day the Preps had a big party to celebrate 100 days of school!
100 days has certainly flown and all children have learnt and grown so much. Congratulations to Miss Curtis, Melinda and all of the Preps on this wonderful milestone.
We had a fantastic time learning how to bush dance! Special thanks to the PA for organising a workshop and concert for the students to show off their skills.
Mother's Day Stall
Our students had a wonderful time choosing special gifts for their lovely Mums at the Mother's Day Stall. From yoga mats to cake stands the choices were endless! We hope all Mums loved their gifts. A big thank you to our parent volunteers for running the stall.
Prep/1/2 Excursion to Taskworks
What a fun-filled day the Preps, Grade Ones and Twos had at their excursion to Taskworks. They participated in many tasks which required them to communicate, problem solve and work together as a team.
Grandparents/Special Friends Day
We had a lovely time sharing our school day with our grandparents and special friends. We began with Mass led by Archbishop Denis Hart, followed by some great entertainment and fun outdoor activities. A big thank you to the PA for providing the lunch and to the teachers and students for making the delicious scones. We hope you all had a memorable day!
Mother's Day Movie Night
We hope all Mums had a lovely time at the Movie Night and enjoyed the tasty treats! We thank all the sponsors for supporting this fantastic event.
We had a wonderful day as we celebrated the many cultures we have here at St John’s. We are fortunate to have such diversity and everyone enjoyed learning about various aspects of a few cultures. Thank you to all families who brought in a plate of food to share. It was an amazing lunch with such a variety of delicious dishes.
What a wonderful event seeing all the children participating in a range of events in their house colours.
