Merry Christmas

Last week we held our school Christmas Carols evening. It had been a very hot day (high 30's) and it was still about 33 degrees when we performed! Even though it was so hot we still had a great time singing 'Christmas Star'. Thank you Mrs Riddiford for helping us learn the words and actions to this song. We hope that you have a wonderful Christmas!

Preps Taking Action

This term we have been finding out about recycling, reducing and reusing rubbish. As part of our action to reduce rubbish we went on a walk around our local streets and discovered that there is quite a bit of litter on the streets. We decided as part of our action to create a flyer to deliver to the houses in our street to encourage them to pick up the rubbish that they see. We are hoping that this will reduce the rubbish around our school. Today we went for a walk to deliver our flyers. Preps Taking Action on PhotoPeach


As part of our Inquiry Action this term we reused jam jars to create Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. We have been finding out how we can reuse things around the house to make something new. We used the jars, brown paper, goggle eyes and pom poms to bring our reindeers to life! They look fantastic! Rudolph on PhotoPeach


Thank you Mrs Klein for bringing Pancakes in to visit us. She is very cute!

Speed Stacking at St. Luke's

Today we had another opportunity to revisit our 'speed stacking' skills. We realised that it is important to make sure both hands move at the same time and that you watch what the cups are doing. We had heaps of fun! Thank you Mrs Bellesini

Rubbish at St. Lukes!

A couple of weeks ago the Preps went for a walk around their local neighborhood to discover where rubbish is left in our streets. They were able to locate on a map where most of the rubbish was found.
Today the Preps decided to carry out an audit of rubbish found in their school grounds. The Preps chose to carry out the audit after lunch on a Monday because this is the day our school has lunch orders. They were amazed at how much rubbish the students of St. Lukes dropped on the ground!

They were left to ponder a couple of questions ~
Should our school be wrapper free?
How can the Preps encourage the students to put their rubbish in the appropritae bins?
Should we still have lunch orders?
Who should collect the rubbish left on our school ground?

We would love to hear what you think about rubbish at St. Lukes.

Here is a slideshow of the rubbish the Preps found in the school grounds.
