DailyUpdate - 5th June

Mrs Whitten's reading of Oi Dog was a fun way to finish the week and on Monday Mrs Dineen returns with a scary tale about a crocodile ... We are very lucky that Mrs Dineen is also recording for us The Extincts by Veronica Cossanteli, a local author who has visited our school in the past. Due to publishing restrictions, this has to be an unlisted video so is only available here a chapter a day through this link:

This Sunday we celebrate the feast of the Holy Trinity - the hugely complex concept that God is Three (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) and yet God is One. We acknowledge it every time we pray by making the sign of the cross. Attached are some liturgy resources from Immaculate Conception Parish that you can use with your children. We're sending you all the way to Texas this week for our suggested live-stream Mass from where else but the Parish of the Holy Trinity in San Antonio:
