Road Safety

Last week, a photographer and Tania Mihailuk came to St Felix because of the need for an overhead pedestrian bridge near the intersection of the Hume Highway. Road safety is a very important issue.

Ms Harbrow believes that a bridge would improve pedestrian safety, not just for students, but the entire community.St Felix - Bridge

Holy Week 2015

IMG_9840Holy Week, is the most important week in the life of the Church. Holy Week is the last week of Lent.

Palm Sunday

  • Palm Sunday marks the start of Holy Week. It reminds us of Jesus riding into Jerusalem on a donkey. He chose a donkey to show that he had come in peace. The people welcomed him by waving palm branches.

Holy Thursday

  • After Jesus washed the feet of the disciples, He celebrated the last supper. This is where he performed the sacrament of Holy Communion (turned bread into his body and wine into his blood). After the supper, Jesus and his disciples went to the garden of Gethsemane to pray, where he was arrested by the temple guard.

Good Friday

  • Jesus was taken into court before Pontius Pilate. Roman soldiers took him to Golgotha where he was crucified.

Easter Saturday

  • Jesus rested in the tomb.

Easter Sunday

  • An angel met Mary Magdalene and the other Mary at the tomb to tell them that Jesus was risen from the dead.

Watch the YouTube video below.

During Week 10, some grades performed a reflection of each day of Holy Week. Take a look at the photos below.

Catholic Schools Week 2015

This year, the theme for Catholic School’s Week is educating for today and tomorrow.

We had a beautiful Catholic School’s Week Mass and our parents were invited into our classrooms to see how we learn. We then had a lovely picnic morning tea with our parents.

The ICT club also entered a competition for Catholic School’s Week. The competition required the students to create a 30 second video explaining what our Catholic school of tomorrow would look like. Take a look at the entry below!

Gymnastics

CaptureIn term 1 this year, students at St Felix are participating in Gymnastics every Tuesday. The students are able to learn and practise many skills such as their rotation and balance! We get to learn different positions during this process such as the Pencil, Motorbike and Mr T. There are always at least 3 fantastic instructors who always there for our safety and protection.

During Gymnastics we use equipment such as trampolines , hoola-hoops and balance beams.  One of the movements is called jump split (straddle in the air). This is when you put your hands in the shape of a pencil and you do 3 small jumps on the trampoline and on the 4th jump, you jump high and do a jump split in the air and land on the mat in the shape of a motorbike and hold the shape for 3 seconds.

The students enjoy Gymnastics as the activities are all fun and exciting! After every group has done every activity, if there is still time left we do a challenge which involves two or more people to see who wins the challenge. The challenge is one of the activities they have learnt that lesson.
