X-Country

We Survived X-Country! We all finished and are SO proud of our efforts! These photos were taken just before our big race!


Confirmed in The Spirit Art


Our art project is well under way and the paintings are starting to take shape. We learned about the concepts of light and dark, over and under painting, mixing colours, blending and was able to so some sponge work at the end. We have created our own beaches where we will include our foot prints and a scripture which focuses on how we are Confirmed by God and the Holy Spirit. He gives us our identity. We can't wait to complete this and start our next project!

 Our Mission for this term is to complete a Novel study and a Country Study with a range of tasks by the end of the year! We are working hard and are learning a lot about Education, Food, Water and Gender Equality in different countries
