Pentecost Term...WIND & FIRE!

We explored the power of the Holy Spirit, beginning with a paper plane competition, followed by a

symbolic burning of our planes.

We then explored our school looking for evidence of those times when our community lives by the power of the Spirit. Next, we recorded information about people we know whose lives evidence this power.

This week, we tried natural sculptures as part of our Art work.

Happy Harvest!


Having donated over 50 items, our class celebrated the harvest joining in a whole-school Liturgy. 

Each class added their donations too and there is a large collection of food to give to those less fortunate than ourselves.

We said two prayers, helped with the procession and sang a harvest samba!

Many thanks to our generous parents for their donations of tins, packets and dried goods.

It was wonderful to appreciate God's gifts.
