     What's On @ Star of the Sea



    Prep Church Visithttp://www.staroftheseacleveland.qld.edu.au/Latest News/Pages/Prep-Church-Visit.aspxPrep Church Visit<p>On Wednesday the 20th October I had the opportunity to work with our Prep students and their teachers as we went and visited our church. Our Prep students had the opportunity to explore the many special symbols and their meanings that can be found in our Star of the Sea Church. It was also a great chance to come and pray together in the wonderful sacred space of our church.</p><p>​<img src="/Latest%20News/PublishingImages/SOTSChurchVIsit.jpg" alt="SOTSChurchVIsit.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:561px;" />​<br><br></p>
    Welcome 2022 Prep Students to their First Prep Mini Visithttp://www.staroftheseacleveland.qld.edu.au/Latest News/Pages/Welcome-2022-Prep-Students-to-their-First-Prep-Mini-Visit.aspxWelcome 2022 Prep Students to their First Prep Mini Visit<p></p><p>This coming Tuesday, 26 October, we will welcome our 2022 Preps to Star of the Sea for their first Prep Mini Visit. This visit aims to provide the students with their first experience of the school setting. Students will have the opportunity to share in activities in their learning area, meet some of their classmates for 2022, and to become familiar with the general space.</p><p>As the children enjoy engaging activities in the learning area, we will welcome our 2022 Prep Parents, both new and returning families, to the O’Dea Centre for a Parent Session. This session will introduce our School Team and provide information around getting ‘ready for Prep’.</p><p>Details outlining the Mini Visit session, are outlined in our latest newsletter.<br></p><p><img src="/Latest%20News/PublishingImages/PrepStudent.jpg" alt="PrepStudent.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:561px;" /><br></p><p>​<br></p>
    Socktober - Friday 29th Octoberhttp://www.staroftheseacleveland.qld.edu.au/Latest News/Pages/Socktober---Friday-29th-October.aspxSocktober - Friday 29th October<p></p><p>Star of the Sea is taking part in Socktober on Friday 29th October, an initiative of global mission aid agency Catholic Mission Australia, that raises awareness and funds for critical projects supporting vulnerable children in developing countries.</p><p>The focus for Catholic Mission this year is building a Kindergarten in Bangkok that provides a safe learning environment for children and life-changing empowerment for their mothers.</p><p>It’s important for our students to understand why children overseas need our support, and to expose some of the root causes of poverty. In doing this, we are preparing our students to be responsible leaders of change in the future.<br></p><p>The soccer part of the day, especially the “sockball activity”, helps the students to understand that, while we might be more fortunate and privileged than children in Thailand, we are very similar at a fundamental level, in our love of games and sports.”</p><p>Activities through the day:</p><ul><li>Students are able to wear crazy socks for the day.</li><li>Students will make a “sockball” – a makeshift soccer ball made of recycled materials like old socks, plastic bags and rope. Students are encouraged to bring as many old socks from home as possible.</li><li>Year level Soccer “Penalty Shoot Out” against staff.</li></ul><p>We are asking for a gold coin donation to participate in Socktober and money raised will be going towards Project Compassion. Students can either bring their gold coin donation on the day or via our school Qkr! app. The Qkr! App is the preferred method of payment.</p><p>Our whole school community is hopeful we can make a big impact for children in need in Thailand and part of being a Catholic community is always looking to support those in greater need than ourselves.<br></p><p style="">​<img src="/Latest%20News/PublishingImages/socktober2021.jpg" alt="socktober2021.jpg" style="margin:5px;" />​<br></p>
