St Joseph's Catholic School

On July 5 the staff enjoyed their annual Faith Formation Day at St Joseph's Perthville led ever so beautifully by Mrs Anne Gibbons. The theme was "Peace" with a particular focus on the importance of our very own inner peace.

Note- the diptych "Coming Together" by Isabelle (second from left at the top of the image) will be adorning the walls of the Oberon Matters office after the exhibition closes.

Under the Sea

This term, 3/4R have been exploring life under the sea. We have read about and researched different sea creatures and their habitats. We have dived right into creating artworks, writing and presenting information reports and following steps in a procedure. We have also created our own procedures on how to build a hotel for bugs using recycled materials. Students have enjoyed learning about these beautiful creatures and their environments and how we can all help to keep them safe and protected.

The Tip of the Iceberg

Throughout term 2, students in 3/4D have been exploring the topic of Icebergs through literature and art. They have created scientific drawings, numerous artworks and digital presentations to showcase their knowledge.
