This term the Reception class have been looking closely at the Aboriginal Culture through Art. This connected well to last week’s National Reconciliation Week and the theme of “In this Together’.  We have looked at the colours used in the Aboriginal flag, dreamtime stories, rock paintings, Aboriginal symbols used in art and traditional dot paintings.  We learnt about different stories through looking at dot paintings and the techniques used to create them.  We also shared our opinions on different dot paintings and what we believed they were trying to show.

We really enjoyed creating our own dot paintings.  They are now hanging up in the junior primary corridor and we love looking at them everyday.

Mary

Year 5/6Hackett have been learning about Mary, the first disciple, who listened to the Word of God in her life, and responded to this with faith, courage and love.  We learnt that Mary’s faithfulness, as expressed in the Magnificat, provides us with a model of discipleship and an example of Christian love for the poor.

Crazy Hair day was an opportunity not only to have some much-needed fun but to also spend some time reflecting on the discipleship of Mary.  We were able to provide money for Project Compassion which will help support those who are in need of our support.

We hope you like our “crazy hair”!
