Last week, we had our Father's Day breakfast and stall opening. Lots of fathers came in with their children to celebrate the day.
Today, the ANZ Tennis Hot Shots Racquet Show came to Holy Family Catholic Primary School.
Tennis Australia has launched the ANZ Tennis Hot Shots Racquet Roadshow to celebrate a record 80,000 racquets being delivered to primary school students across the country. Holy Family students in the T/1 classes (Room 14 and 15) received one of these tennis racquets.
Twenty-two time Grand Slam champion Todd Woodbridge, visited and presented the racquets to Holy Family students. He, along with student from Room 14 and 15, Took part in on-court activities also.
I’m not sure if the students, staff or parents were more excited to see Todd!
Adam Turley, science teacher from O’Loughlin Catholic College visited us today with two very special guests: Chief Minister Michael Gunner and Member for Karma Ngaree Ah Kit. Mr Turley led our guests through a process of making liquid nitrogen ice-cream. Many lucky students got to have a taste test.
Ten students from Holy Family celebrated their Confirmation at Mass on Sunday the 29th of October. The students have been studying hard over the past five weeks in preparation for their special day. Bishop Eugene Hurley led the celebration and emphasised that he now shares a special relationship with the 10 candidates. I take this opportunity to thank the parents of the candidates for their support, Sebastian and Pauline from the Holy Family Parish, Bibiana and Fr Mon who were all instrumental in the journey for these ten special candidates.

During the prayer liturgy led by Room 15 on the Holy Rosary, handmade Rosary Beads were handed out to classes. These Rosary Beads were donated by Janice Quan and her family and friends. Janice hopes that we use these Rosary Beads to pray the Rosary.
In Week 9 and 10 of Term 3, we all went to the swimming pool to learn how to swim. It was a cool time for all.
