Father’s Day Breakfast

Today we celebrated all the Fathers by providing a special Father’s Day breakfast. Many Dads took the opportunity to have a game of basketball or soccer with their children and have a catch up with all the other Dads. We were very fortunate to have Ben Hart, former Adelaide Crows player, as our guest speaker, inspiring students to follow their dreams and to remember the following four qualities: dream, persistence, courage and luck. Very wise words indeed!

Everyone dressed in their favourite footy colours and sang their Footy Team’s song at the top of their voices! What a great day it was! Huge thanks to the whole staff, led by Miss Mackinnon, who did an excellent job at making sure the day ran smoothly.

Book Week Parade

Last week was Book Week, celebrating all the wonderful books we read. The Grade 5/6’s were very lucky to have the author, Kristina Murray-Hally, visit the school and explain the importance of editing during the writing process. Students were shown an actual manuscript with an editor’s comments and were given a chance to practise their own editing skills.

On Friday, we held the inaugural OLGC book parade, where students dressed up as their favourite book character. The costumes were amazing and filled the atrium with colour. A huge thank you to all the parents who put so much effort into making the costumes. Check out the some of the colourful pics below!

Pyjama Day Friday August 18th

On Friday 18th August students dressed up in their pyjamas (and very cool onesies!) to raise money for St Vincent de Paul, who do a wonderful job at supporting the homeless. Many students in 5/6I braved the night in their sleeping bags and even sung a tune or two with Mr Briddock on the guitar. Thanks to everyone at OLGC for raising money and helping to increase the awareness of what homeless people face on a daily basis. Well done everyone!
