Holy Week Celebrationshttp://www.stmartinscarina.qld.edu.au/news-events/Pages/Holy-Week-Celebrations.aspxHoly Week Celebrations<p>This year we celebrated the events of Holy Week with an Easter Prayer Walk. Each class has participated in the walk which commemorates this remarkable story, telling the story of the events from Palm Sunday through to Good Friday. The children have been able to follow the journey of Jesus' and experience firsthand, the events that led to his Crucifixion. Thank you to the staff that have helped me put this together and thank you to the parents who have joined their child's class for the walk. If you weren't able to make it you might like to discuss the story of Easter with your child/ren after they have experienced the walk. We will celebrate the Resurrection when we return next term on Wednesday 18<sup>th</sup> April at 11am. Prep have been working hard with Mrs Power, in Music, to learn a song for this Liturgy.  </p><p>We are reminded that no matter how young or old we are, what a remarkable story the Easter story is. The fact that Jesus persevered in doing God's will in his life ought to give us hope in our own lives. Easter celebrates the promise of life in the face of death. Easter celebrations also reflect on peace and forgiveness which has come out of aggression. It is also a time for thinking about suffering, injustice and hardship. Let us focus this Easter, on the meaning of the Resurrection- New Life and new beginnings. </p><p><img alt="Holyweekwalks1.jpg" src="/news-events/Documents/Holyweekwalks1.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:600px;" /> </p>
Say No to Bullying Discohttp://www.stmartinscarina.qld.edu.au/news-events/Pages/Say-No-to-Bullying-Disco.aspxSay No to Bullying Disco<p>A great night was had by all on Friday as we celebrated together the National Day Against Bullying. The children came along wearing their orange clothes and wrist bands and danced the night away to some favourites put together by our DJ’s Matt Schultz and Jeff Reeves. A night like that could not happen if it wasn’t for the many volunteers we had to support the children on the night. Thanks to Tim Schultz and his team for the supervision, water and first aid.</p><p>We had a great week of learning strategies to deal with bullying behaviours and how to ‘choose kind’ over bullying. The teachers provided many learning opportunities in the classroom to reinforce the notion that bullying is not acceptable anytime, anywhere. Congratulations to Rocky O’Donnell for winning an award today for ‘Choosing Kind’. Rocky will enjoy an ice-block from the tuckshop to celebrate.​<img alt="disco.jpg" src="/news-events/PublishingImages/disco.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:600px;" /></p>

The trip looks amazing and quite life changing. One principal described it as, ‘being able to live everything we ever learnt growing up in a Catholic school’. </p> <p>"Mass in the middle of the Sea of Galilee was one of the most memorable of many during my time here in the Holy Land".</p><p><img alt="galilee.jpg" src="/news-events/PublishingImages/galilee.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:600px;" /> </p></font></font>
Class Covenantshttp://www.stmartinscarina.qld.edu.au/news-events/Pages/Class-Covenants.aspxClass Covenants<p>​At the beginning of a school year, teachers and students spend a lot of time creating a culture within their classroom to ensure that all parties have an environment that is safe, happy and conducive to successful learning.  Each year level create a Class Covenant.</p><p>A Class Covenant is an agreed undertaking by the class about the ways that class members will:</p><ul style="list-style-type:disc;"><ul style="list-style-type:disc;"><ul style="list-style-type:disc;"><li>think and learn</li><li>get along with and care for others and </li><li>act to make a difference in the world.</li></ul></ul></ul><p>This year, our Year 6 students wrote a declaration for their class and enhanced the meaning of this covenant by writing and recording a song.  Please enjoy our Year 6 students singing their class covenant for 2018.</p><div class="ms-rtestate-read ms-rte-wpbox"><div class="ms-rtestate-notify ms-rtestate-read 25f12b86-108c-4ee8-b0b3-c49ca57a2359" id="div_25f12b86-108c-4ee8-b0b3-c49ca57a2359" unselectable="on"></div><div id="vid_25f12b86-108c-4ee8-b0b3-c49ca57a2359" unselectable="on" style="display:none;"></div></div>
