Moving and Grooving in Junior School

The Pre Primary, Year 1 and Year 2 students have been been participating in Dance this Semester and have worked with Miss Pratt on communicating with their bodies, learning about using the body in space and developing expression through movement. Each of the six classes learnt and rehearsed a short routine which gave them the chance to present what they had learned.


The Kindy students joined these six classes along with a terrific number of parents and relatives for the Junior Dance assembly this week during which each class got the chance to perform their routines for a captive audience. The Junior School Liturgical Dancers also got the opportunity to perform their routine 'The Way of the Cross' which will be presented as part of the Christian Dance category of the Catholic Schools Performing Arts Festival next term.


The students did themselves proud and a huge thanks must go to Miss Georgina Pratt for her hard work with the students over the past two terms and for organising the assembly. The future of Dance at Holy Cross College looks very bright indeed!

Middle and Senior School Athletics Carnival

Last Thursday 14 June saw the Middle and Senior School Inter House Athletics Carnival take place at the College, accompanied by absolutely sensational weather.

The students particpated in the Athletics Meet style carnival with the opportunity to surpass previous personal best efforts and to represent their House’s in an attempt to gain points in the overall standings.

The student’s efforts matched the superb weather with a fantastic standard set, not only in achievment but in overall participation. The House Spirit on display as well as the level of support the students offered each other was fantastic.

Junior School Update

Kindergarten

What a busy and fun Autumn term are having in Kindergarten! We have been learning about God’s creations including insects, animals, plants, oceans and rivers and how we can look after them. The Kindergarten students are exploring how they connect with and contribute to their world. Come and have a look in our garden at the plants we have put in to see how big they have grown. We have also learned about the lifecycle of a butterfly and were very lucky to see a real butterfly hatchling transform from its cocoon. We have also been super busy practising for our first assembly working on our counting skills in English, as well as Japanese and French. We hope you enjoyed the performance!
