Today at our school was our fantastic market day ‘Timor Leste Bargain Bazaar’. This was part of our Inquiry unit for term 4. The students needed to create a business to help raise money for our sister school in Timor Leste. It was a fabulous day. The teachers were blown away with what the students had created. Some of the store included,
- Queen of Nails
- Lolly Land
- Cupcake Queens
- General Store
- Face Painting
- Sip n Slice
- Ned’s Jelly
- Lollies R Us
- Flip a coin
- and many more…..
After a busy 2 hours of selling items it was time for the students to count their earnings with some help from their teachers. Overall we teachers were amazed at how much the students raised for our sister school in Timor Leste.
Our grand total was
WELL DONE TO ALL STUDENTS IN YEAR 3 & 4!
We are so proud of what you have achieved
We also want to say a huge thank you to all parents who helped us out in making this day be such a success.
Below is a slideshow to share this day with everyone.

We are heading into a very special time of year for a lot of children…..
But the sad thing is, a lot of children from all around the world go without a present.
Operation Christmas Child is a unique project of Samaritan’s Purse Australasia-Operation Christmas Child Limited that brings Good News and Great Joy to kids in need through a simple shoebox filled with gifts.
Every year, generous people, schools, churches and businesses pack shoeboxes with gifts. No matter how old or how young you are, get involved and make a difference to a child who has nothing. A shoebox is far more than just a gift …it opens up a world of life-changing opportunities for the child, their family and their community.
The year 4 students have the opportunity to help out and provide a gift for a child less fortunate than themselves.
Globally, more than 100 million shoeboxes have been given to kids in need in more than 130 countries since 1993.
On Thursday the Year 4 students had their reflection day in preparation for their First Eucharist next weekend.
This day was a fantastic day where the students where able to reflect on their learning. The day began with a Mass in the church followed by activities in the classroom. Then students had a special BBQ that was organised by the fantastic Parent Reps.
Overall it was a fantastic day and all the Year 4’s are looking forward to celebrating their First Eucharist with their family and friends next weekend.
