Year Six Class News
This term the Year Sixes are excited to learn about the different regions and countries of Asia, in particular, China and Malaysia. The children have started by looking at the ‘goods and services’ and ‘imports and exports’ between Australia and Asia. Later in the term, they will be writing Information Reports. This week we will be exploring the Chinese culture and the children will be making Vegetable Chow Mein, which is a Chinese noodle dish.

CPSSA Interschool Cross Country
Last Tuesday our Interschool Cross Country squad travelled to Alderbury Reserve, Perry Lakes to compete in the annual CPSSA Interschool Cross Country Carnival. This is our most challenging Interschool carnival as it is all 16 schools in our CPSSA competing on the one day! The Interschool squad didn’t let the strong competition and warmer weather get to them; they were simply amazing in their efforts! The determination to push through and strive for their personal best was incredible to watch. A big thank you to all our parents that came to the carnival and supported our children. Thank you also to Mrs King and Miss Phoebe for attending the carnival and helping with marshalling, first aid and overall support.

Individual results have been placed in the children’s Seesaw account and below is the overall result :

Choir News
The Infant Jesus School Choir have a very busy and exciting term ahead, with several performances and excursions in Term 3. Over the past two terms, the Infant Jesus School Choir have been working very hard in preparation for the Catholic Performing Arts Festival, which will take place in weeks 5 and 6 of this term. On Monday 19 and 26 August the Choir will represent Infant Jesus School in the Sacred Choral and Choral Performance sections of the Festival. Family members are welcome to attend both of these performances and tickets are available from the performance venues on the day.

Last Friday morning 2 August, the Choir and the School Band performed a selection of songs for teachers, parents and students during the Performing Arts Showcase assembly. This was excellent practise for them in preparation for the Catholic Performing Arts Festival. They all performed beautifully. The Choir was also very excited to receive their 2019 Choir badges last week, which they can now wear proudly on their school uniform and when representing Infant Jesus School during performances and excursions. The school Band will also receive their badges in the coming weeks. Thank you to the family members that attended the assembly and for supporting the students in their performances. Thank you also to Kerry King for your continued support of the Choir.

Last Thursday 1 August, the Choir went on an excursion to the Regal Theatre to see Mercedes College’s production of Wicked The Musical! The students absolutely loved seeing this spectacular production and being immersed in the music, storyline, dancing and staging. I know it inspired many of the students, who I hope will have the opportunity to be involved in such productions in their future years. Congratulations to all of the cast, musicians, crew, staff and design team involved from Mercedes College – it really was a magical show!
