The Garden of Gethsemane

This week our class had the job of performing the ‘The Garden’ scene as part of our Holy Week performances. Below is a reflection on a our performance by Hannah.

In the Holy Week play I was Jacob.  Jacob was Peter’s nephew.  He is a young boy trying to learn about what happened to Jesus.

In this performance the disciples fall asleep in the garden.  That might not seem too bad, but Jesus had asked them to stay and keep watch.  This especially affected Peter, James and John.  Ruth and Jacob are friends trying to work out what REALLY happened.

We did not have the nicest scene: Jesus got arrested, Peter was found asleep three times by Jesus and more.  At the end of the scene Peter goes to the high priest’s house to see Jesus being arrested by the soldiers.  While there, Peter was asked lots of questions such as: ‘Aren’t you one of his disciples?’, ‘Weren’t you with Jesus of Nazareth?’ and ‘Weren’t you with him in the garden?’.  Every time the answer was no.

The play made me feel both happy and sad.  Happy because I knew it would end well, but sad, because Peter lost a friendship with Jesus.  It was also sad, because Jesus got arrested by the soldiers.

Artwork with Mrs Daldry

Yesterday the year 3/4s were able to work with Mrs Daldry to do some artwork. Mrs Daldry was invited back to our school to be an artist in residence to assist all the classes across our school to produce artwork around the theme of Lent. Our class produced a 3D piece of artwork around the Last Supper. We hope you enjoy the video of the creative process and a big thank you to Mrs Daldry for a great Art lesson.

Student Blogging Challenge: South Australian Quiz

Our class have signed up for the Student Blogging Challenge this year. The Student Blogging Challenge is a series of weekly activities run over ten weeks. The goal of the challenge is to improve student blogging and commenting skills and connect with a global audience.

We are in the second week of the challenge and the activity we have chosen to do this week was to create a quiz about the state we live in South Australia. We hope you learn a little more about our state and be even tempted to come and visit.

Shrove Tuesday

Today was Shrove Tuesday. Students were asked to bring in a gold coin donation for a pancake prepared by our wonderful parents from the Nativity CRIB.

The day before Lent starts is Shrove Tuesday. This day was traditionally the last chance to use up the foods Christians would not be eating during Lent.

You can see for yourselves below that the pancakes were a huge success and it was nice to know that the money was going towards raising money for Project Compassion.






My Dream Bedroom


Hi today I’m talking about my dream bedroom with Alana. We will have a T.V and a couch. The T.V. is a plasma  T.V. which is also known as a touch screen. The couch can fit two people. The arch is white. We made drink bottles for  each other and we made our room in 30 minutes. It was hard but we did it.

It was fun working with Alana and it was hard at times, but we did it.
