Last night STA took a trip around the world to learn about Christmas traditions in other countries. The one message that remained the same though was that Christmas is about Christ. It’s the time we give thanks for the birth of Jesus, the Prince of Peace. A huge thank you and congratulations to all our students for sharing their gifts with our community last night. They definitely put a lot of smiles on all the faces there.

On Monday, our Year 6 students were treated to a visit from My Kitchen Rules contestant Melissa Nassif who is a parent at our school. This was an Italian lesson about making gelato, and our senior students were shown how to make chocolate gelato. We also talked a little about MKR! The children were able to eat some gelato later in the day. A huge thank you to Melissa for giving her time and sharing her expertise with us so generously. All the children, and teachers, enjoyed the visit immensely.
