Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
What a fantastic show last night! The students of our school certainly amazed and entertained us as they retold the biblical tale of Joseph. We congratulate all the students on this magnificent performance and pay tribute to our dedicated staff who were unseen, but very much at work in the background. Thanks also to the support of our families. It was gratifying to look out over the crowd last night and to see the encouragement and adulation on your faces! Special thanks to families of children who had substantial roles that required ongoing home rehearsals.  Everyone’s commitment and persistence paid off in the performance. [foogallery id="1499"]

Student Congress
On Monday night we attended the annual Student Congress Celebration Night at the Lighthouse Theatre, along with some of our parents and teachers. Throughout the night we had an opportunity to view other school’s projects and to share the imovie we made, which was about being more active and healthy.  Over the last few months we have taught kids that being on technology all the time is bad for their health. We hope that the workshops we ran will give students ideas and choices on health, fitness and being more active.  By Olivia Lenehan and Jada Shand

Lost and Found
Our family often sits down to watch a movie together, usually over the weekend. Recently we’ve had a run of tear jerkers including the film Lion. Lion is the incredible true story of an Australian man who was born in India and after being separated from his family was adopted by a family in Tasmania. As an adult, and after an incredible search, he was reunited with his birth mother. I defy anyone to watch the film without at least a lump in their throat at the end of the film! The story of Saroo is amazing in its scope, but the emotion of the connection between parent and child is universal. It gives an extra layer of meaning to Sunday’s Gospel, in which Jesus tells the story of the Prodigal (lost) Son. The son breaks his relationship with his family and is considered lost to them. He lives life on his own terms and eventually ends up with nothing. At the end of the story, he seeks to reunite and be forgiven by his family. More than once, Jesus uses the metaphor of something lost - the son, a sheep, a coin as a way to communicate the feeling of a broken relationship. Saroo’s experience of being lost was the result of childhood innocence rather than selfishness, but the break in relationship for both he and his mother was just as painful as the one in Jesus’ story and the element that connects these for me. We all experience the loss of relationship with others from time to time. Jesus encourages us to seek and find these relationships again, ready to forgive and be forgiven.

Sports Night with Dad
Thanks to all who turned out for the Sports Night with our Dads.  The weather was very kind to us and made it an ideal evening for a BBQ  and games. With thanks to all those who volunteered their time to cook and serve the BBQ and to those who co-ordinated the activities. We hope all our Dads had a great Father’s Day.
