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!

Creating and making with textiles

This term, we have been looking at using textiles as a medium for creativity. Using wool or natural fibres to create something wearable is an ancient art. Some of the best memories that I have, when growing up was of creating felt and dyeing fabrics. This was the inspiration for the project for my Creativity project. After approaching our agricultural department for some raw alpaca fleece, the first step was to was this very dirty fleece. This was dirty, but a lot of fun! After it had dried, we dyed the wool and then felted it. The felting process takes a lot of work, hot water and soap. It requires the wool to be placed into a tea towel after it was carded to get rid of the rest of the dirt. There was a lot of enthusiasm to have a go. Rubber gloves were essential to protect little hands! This took much longer than anticipated so we have used purchased felt to make our creations The next step was to learn to sew using a needle and thread. To help this pro
