St Peter Chanel's Got Talent

Early in December, St Peter Chanel Catholic School held SPC’s Got Talent. Students were put through an audition process by Year 7 and 8 Marist Regional College students visiting the school for their service program.

Seven acts made it through to the final held the following day.  The show was MC’d by ex-St Peter Chanel students, Caleb & Bejai.  The judging panel was also made up of some past students from the School along with Marist teacher Mr Darren Cox.

Congratulations to Sienna, Chloe and Piper who danced their way to first place. Second place saw joint winners with Kaylah and Leah being awarded for their dancing and Tanar for his impressive break dancing skills.  Third place went to Stella and Imogen for their dance routine.

Congratulations to all the participants whose fantastic performances proved that SPC's certainly got talent!

Tis the season for giving

Grade 5 students from Sacred Heart Catholic School have been raising money to support Rotary in providing shelter boxes.  Shelter boxes contain a tent, sleeping bag, stove pots and pans, mosquito nets and additional supplies and are provided for children and adults stricken by war, natural disasters, drought or poverty. Last year the School provided enough funds to purchase one shelter box worth $1,000 and this year they worked hard to raise enough money for two shelter boxes.

Year 10 students at Dominic College presented a cheque for $1,000 to Vinnies Youth Coordinator Natalie Howell.  The students raised the money throughout the year by selling chocolates, holding a soup day, a barbecue and a lolly jar guessing game.  They also collected clothes for Vinnie's Winter Appeal and are now collecting food for the Christmas Hamper Appeal.

Curious giraffe

St Aloysius Catholic College student Maddie created a giraffe and invited responses to a thought provoking question 'If you could have anything what would it be?' This art installation was featured at the Creative Arts Night and the Huntingfield campus where people wrote their answers on leaves and 'fed' them to the giraffe. The responses ranged from wishes for superpowers to good health for family members.
