Easter Hat Parade and Missions Day

Term 1 seems to have disappeared so quickly!

Year 6 had the opportunity to create their Easter Hats, ready for our Easter Hat parade on the last day of school. While not everyone made their own hat, all of the students helped one of the younger students make a hat. This made the Easter Hat parade all the more enjoyable as they were able to share in the enjoyment of their buddies class. 

The Easter Hat parade has become a community event for MACC. Walking into the Hall and seeing so many visitors always makes the occasion special. Our prefects and Captains hosted the event well, especially in bringing the message of Easter. It is a time to remember why we celebrate this time of the year.

Believing in Jesus Christ underpins our the core values of our school. Remembering that he died for humanities sin's so that we could personally know God is the reason that we celebrate Easter. Jesus calls us to serve one another, which he showed by his example. 

One of the ways that we have found helps others is to hold Missions Day. The day allows students to have some fun, be able to serve and raise money. The money that is raised is used to help other children overseas in China and Bali. A big thank you to everyone who helped on the day.

I would like to extend a big thank you to Year 6, who did an amazing job of face painting on the day. Thank you to all of the parents who supported and sent in prizes for the lucky dip. We raised just under $170 from our stall. Well done Everyone!

Have a wonderful holiday!

The Burnt Stick- A Personal Response

Stories can help us see, the experiences and emotions of other people. Using stories to empathise with another person's life can be a powerful way to change the views that we might hold about other people. It puts us into their shoes, and see another person's life through their eyes. The Burnt Stick is a book written with that intention. The story is about an aboriginal boy called John Jagamarra who was taken from his family when he was 5 years old. He was taken by the Welfare man to live with the Fathers at Pearl Bay Mission for Aboriginal Children, to learn the ways of the white man. The students in Stage 3 have been learning about how to write a personal response to a story. Personal responses come in many forms but always need to have a summary of the story and a personal response or opinion about it. The criteria for our personal response is: The starting point for the writing was to brainstorm ideas about the feelings and thoughts about the story. W

"My Country" Poetry Writing

Words can have an impact when we use them in ways that create images and evoke emotions. Poetry is a way of writing that allows someone to communicate these images and emotions in a deeply personal way. They require creativity and thought about a subject, often using a limited amount of words to so. Dorothea Mackellar is an Australian poet, who uses imagery in her poetry to great effect. They portray her love of her country by creating images of colour and ruggedness through a rich use of descriptive words. The most famous of her poems is called "My country", which the students then compared to another poem of hers called "Colours of the Light". After completing the lessons on imagery from these poems, we came up with a definition and looked at the words that can evoke the 5 senses.  To start the process of using imagery in our own writing, we brainstormed ideas for poems. This helps the process of pre-writing. Getting ideas written down assists t
