Footy Day

October 24, 2012 by awalsh | 7 Comments

On the last day of term 3 Holy Family had a footy day. In the morning we did a quiz, some of the questions where who won the Brownlow last year? and who came runner up? Then at 10:30am we had an assembly and we found out who got the most questions right on the quiz. We came 2nd.

After snack we had a footy clinic; we practised kicking, handballing and we did some running games like octopus and a lot more. It was great fun, and later at lunch we had a sausage sizzle. The sausages tasted awesome.

Overall it was a great day.

Basketball Round Robin

October 24, 2012 by awalsh | 3 Comments

One day in September the selected girls and boys on the two different basketball teams competed in the 2012 basketball round robin. Even though the girls didn’t make it into the finals and the boys did the girls still gave it their all. When it came to the day of the round robin we were all a little bit nervous but we got through it. We finished the first game with a disappointing score but we did try. In the second game we were defeated again but we fought. In the third game finally we got a break and won our first game. The fourth and final game was unfortunately the same as the first two. The schools that we played were Glen Waverley, Pinewood, Park hill and Syndal South. At the end of the day we were still the proud team that we were when we walked into that stadium.

Camp Arrabri

October 24, 2012 by awalsh | 7 Comments

On the 8th of October 2012 the senior school went to camp. We went to Arrabri Lodge which is in Warburton. There were many activities in store for us including The Giant Swing which was the favourite of many people. There was also The Flying Fox, Archery, Mini Golf, Orienteering, Inavinatives and Ropes course.

On the first night we had a bush dance with a guy called ‘Felix’ he was part of an outback band called ‘bushwazee’. We did four dances with him and by the time we finished it was 9:00. After that we went for a bush walk. At the end of the trail there was a campfire all ready for us to use. Once we all got to the end and had marshmallows Mr Hyde told us a scary ghost story about Warburton and with the main characters of Bob and Bruce.

The next night we had free time then we had Camp Idol, there were four acts. The first act was Demitri he was singing Joseph our school concert song. The second act of the night was Ethan P, Max, Chris, Cameron and Hugo there act was Two Direction The next act was Angelina, Olivia and Alice and they were doing calisthenics. Then there was a last minute sign up who was One Direction which was performed by Sarah.C and Matilda.B. Then Two Direction decided to perform another time and in the end the winners were Angelina, Olivia and Alice.

On the last day of camp we all woke up tired. We then found out that we had to go on a hike. We walked on a bridge over treetops because the Yarra River was underneath us. We then hopped on the bus to the ride back to school. Many people slept on the bus but when we got back everyone was tired and glad to go home.

Anti Poverty Week

On Friday, the whole school celebrated Anti Poverty week. The whole school had a special liturgy, where the individuals donated a few dollars to the poor countries. We reflected by listening to some music, reflected by our self, prayed and did some meditation. We also watched some videos about Anti Poverty week. We talked about what poverty is.
