Families come Together for Fun Day at Holy Spirit
On Thursday the Holy Spirit community joined together to celebrate our Feast Day, commencing with Pentecost Mass at 12 noon. This was followed by a picnic lunch and a range of family activities with all parents and extended family members who could join us. Thank you to all the teachers who worked to organise this day, especially Mr Mackey, as well as to all our parents and family members who were able to take this opportunity to join their children. The sense of community visibly present on Thursday was amazing!
Below are some snippets from our children about our Fun Day:

Sarah At family Fun Day there were many parents and lots of fun things to do. I danced at the disco and played Sport with Mrs Gomez. It was amazing. I stayed with Brock’s Mum because my Mum wasn’t there. By Cian (1R)
The Family Fun Day was awesome! The activities were perfectly set out and the teachers explained each activity in a way that was easy to understand for kids. I liked how when people were playing table tennis they could also listen to the music playing in the background because of the disco. I rate it a 100 out of 100! GREAT JOB!!!
I played with my friend Isla and we played bowling. We also competed in the jumping race. I fell down twice but I had a great time. Izaiah (KR)
