Sacrament of Reconciliation

Congratulations to all the Year 2 students who participated in and received the Sacrament of Reconciliation! It was a very special time for the children and their families to celebrate this sacrament together. I am so proud of each and every one of you!  You have all worked extremely hard preparing for this special sacrament. I hope you all feel closer to God and will continue to be mindful and aware of the 4 Steps of Reconciliation in your everyday lives.

Little Pig, Little Pig Challenge

As part of our Agents of Change unit, 2MS was given a challenge.  We began by reading the story, The Three Little Pigs. The challenge was to design a house for the pigs to keep safe from the wolf or design a house that would make the wolf happy. Each group had to work cooperatively to choose from a variety of materials to construct a house that would meet the brief. The children had to communicate with each other and discuss which materials would be most appropriate for their house. In addition, they had to justify their choices using language of properties. Here are a few photos of the groups final constructions.

Do you think you know which houses could keep the wolf out?
