St Francis College caring for the community, enjoying spring and in the spotlight with budding dancers
Caring for the community
St Francis College cares for its community – and what better way to put thoughts into action than ‘Thoughtful Thursday’, an ongoing community initiative aimed at feeding the poor. Each Thursday, pupils big and small bring a vegetable or two to school. These are collected for donation to the Sea Vista Soup Kitchen, which currently feeds 130 children and 20 senior citizens daily. Both the college and soup kitchen are grateful for everyone’s ongoing support – let’s make a difference!
We’re in the spotlight! Budding dancers, singers, artists, acrobats and photographers wowed the audience at St Francis College’s recent junior talent show. Organisers Louise Ackerman, Natasha Brown and Sacha Park were super-impressed by the skills and enthusiasm on display – and judge Shona Marais had a tough time picking winners!
‘Spring is ‘Bloomin’
SPRING at St Francis College is bloomin’ marvellous! Our teachers celebrated the start of a new term – and warm, summery days – with style and creativity. Grade 3 pupils went to space with teacher Chane De Jager, the Grade 2 class held a High Tea on the lawns, darling, the Grade 0 girls and boys decorated (and devoured) colourful cupcakes and our tiny tots, the nursery school brigade, welcomed newborn baby bunnies into their campus garden. What a happy start to Term Three!
