Spirit Filled Expo

Just a reminder to all families that tomorrow our Year 5 students will be sharing their learning during the Spirit Filled Expo. The Expo will be running from 9:15 – 11:00am. We hope you can join us.


On Sunday 17th May the Year 6 students received the Sacrament of Confirmation. The students were involved in a rich Confirmation program which included  participating in a reflection day. We were blessed to have Bishop Edwards confirm the St Anne’s children. It was a special day for our school, families and Parish community.


ANZAC Day Ceremony for Schools

Last Thursday a group of Year 6 students represented St Anne’s at the Manningham Schools ANZAC Ceremony.  They joined students from all other schools in the area to reflect on the spirit of ANZAC Day. Matt and McKenzie laid a wreath on behalf of St Anne’s. It was a memorable experience that helped them appreciate what others have done for our country.

Performing Arts



As part of the Year 5/6 music program this term, the students worked in groups to create and perform a RAP for each other. What started out as a challenge for them, culminated in some really fun, clever and energetic presentations.  The themes of anti- bullying and friendship reflected their understanding of these important issues.

Next term, our focus for the Arts is Drama. Some improvisation, some performance and lots of fun!


Using Google Draw the year 5/6 Children have created posters with cybersafety messages. They used their own knowledge of cybersafety to make the poster.

They arranged symbols by sending backgrounds to the back and symbols, text and images to the front. Here is a cross section of their posters.


In Term 1 in Italian the students created and presented to the class ‘Durante le vacanze sono andato/a …’ (during the school holidays I…). The students presented their work to their peers with care and confidence and worked well in pairs to prepare their tasks.

The seniors also worked on a research task researching some famous Italian landmarks including the Leaning Tower of Pisa, St Peter’s Basalica and others.

St Patrick’s Day – Mass for Schools

Last Tuesday a group of Year 6 students represented St Anne’s at the Mass for Catholic Schools which was celebrated at St Patrick’s Cathedral during Catholic Education Week. The students really enjoyed experiencing Mass at the cathedral before moving on to the Treasury Gardens for a concert and activities in the park. It was a great day for all involved and our Year 6 students were even lucky enough to meet Archbishop Hart.



The Beep Test

The Beep Test is a test of fitness and stamina.  The students run over a 20m distance at increasing speed.  Once they are unable to reach the distance before the beep, they stop. This is their level of achievement.  This is a test used by many sports to assess fitness levels.



The 5/6 students have used the symbol of a tree to better understand the values that underpin friendships including online associations.

The root system representing the underlying friendship values and characteristics.

The trunk which represents the online values that help us to become responsible and ethical users.

The canopy represents the behaviours and safety rules we need to follow.IMG_4969
