Wow, I cannot believe we are already at the end of 2017. Obviously, time flies when you are having fun! Last week the Romero children celebrated their Kindergarten Graduation with a Liturgy, performance and sausage sizzle. Father Chris led the Liturgy and contributed beautifully in making the celebration memorable singing solo during his Homily. Michael Dahl the Director of Nazareth proudly presented each of the children with their certificate to acknowledge graduating kindergarten. We then moved into the performance of ‘Felicity and the Fruits of the Spirit’. The children and teachers are to be congratulated on a truly polished performance. I was amazed at the commitment of the children with everyone contributing by memorising their lines, dance moves and entering and exciting the stage as true professionals. A big thank you to the Performing Arts teachers, Druscilla and Daniela who worked in collaboration with Julie, Kim and Jess in the preparation of a wonderful performance. I even seen a few parents amongst the audience with tears in their eyes, we were all extremely proud of our 2017 Graduating Romero class. Good luck children, we wish you happiness and success in your schooling journey. Remember we love to have our graduates visit us whenever the opportunity arises.
Annually on 3 December, is the International Day of People with a Disability (IDPwD); a day of celebrating the many and varied achievements and contributions of people with a disability.
Not just on this day, but every day Nazareth Catholic Community “aspires to be a place where all feel loved and valued for who they are”. We aspire “to excellence in learning and success for all”
The Nazareth Catholic College Out Of School Hours Care is committed to quality care for families within our community. The children who attend the service are provided with recreational and social experiences.
Our students have explored different cultures, food, languages, traditional clothing and celebrations through different learning opportunities and experiences. It is for this reason that we chose our motto UNITE AT CHRISTMAS as it incorporates our learning and inclusion of the different cultures within our school and community.
On Saturday evening, 40 children participated in the Port Adelaide Twilight Christmas Parade.We would like to thank all of the parents and students who participated in the parade, a great time was had by all!
The staff at OSHC wish you all a Happy Christmas.
Each Thursday this Term, the Catherine Community Centre at our Findon Campus has been a hive of activity as children from our Early Child Care and surrounding Kindergartens and Care Centres come together to prepare for entering Reception in 2018. This is the fourth year that Nazareth has run this 5-week program, which aims to prepare and orientate students and ultimately support their transition to primary school.
Christmas can be a very difficult time for families in crisis, in particular those who are experiencing poverty and disadvantage, the need for the services of St Vincent de Paul Society increase significantly at this time.
The concept for this year’s appeal is, ‘Your support can make wishes come true’, which focusses on the important role that schools and young people can play in assisting Vinnies to help the people who turn to them. Together we can make a real difference to their lives.
It is true many hands make light work!
My first Sports Day at Nazareth was a marvellous occasion. It was fantastic to see so many of our children and families having fun in the sun exercising and enjoying being part of a community. I feel privileged to work alongside a team of passionate educators and staff who engaged themselves fully in the planning, preparation and execution of a much-loved event on the calendar.
A walk through the Nazareth Early Childhood Centre's outdoor environment sparked the McAuley Catherine children's curiosity about what was growing. Through their exploration, the children discovered an unusual plant beginning to peak through the soil. After a discussion with Ms Jennifer, the children excitedly announced that we are growing potatoes! This discovery initiated a collaborative project conducted by the children in the McAuley Catherine Room, which was centred on potatoes.
