Days of the Week!

We have been learning about the days of the week. Not only do we need to learn to read the days of the week and put them in the correct order, we also need to think about what happens on each day.

We have been talking about activities that we do on specific days and we have been practising time words - if today is Wednesday then yesterday was Tuesday and tomorrow will be Thursday.

Here we are singing our 'Days of the Week' song - some Mums and Dads might recognise the tune!

What is your favourite day of the week? Tell us why!

Here are our reflections of the day.

Community Spirit at St. Luke's - Helping Others.

Today we had a mini market at school to raise money for children in the Philippines.

Our student Social Justice group organised and supervised stalls. Everyone came along today with their pocket money ready to join in the fun and help raise money for those less fortunate than us. 

Parents and friends were invited and community spirit was well and truly alive!  

The Preps were in charge of the Sweets and Lollies stall. Due to the generosity and kindness of our Prep families and families in the school we were able to raise $200.00!! - just from the lolly stall. Stay tuned for our overall amount.

Declan's mum, Sonya and Niamh's mum, Madeline did a fantastic job bagging up all the lollies! Thank you so much! 

Thank you to those parents who sent along lollies already bagged and to those who did some home baking. A fantastic effort by everyone.

Mrs Gridley prepared a PowerPoint to show where our fundraising money would go and how it will be used.

We are very lucky to have all that we do.
Why is it important to share what we have with others?
