ALPACAS WITH MARACAS
On Wednesday 22nd May at 11am, Kindy H students joined in the National Simultaneous Storytime. They were part of the 1,062,230 participants across Australia and New Zealand to read the latest book by Matt Cosgrove titled 'Alpacas With Maracas'.
Every year the Australian Library and Information Association select a picture book, written and illustrated by an Australian author and illustrator, to read simultaneously in libraries, schools, pre-schools, childcare centres, family homes, bookshops and many other places around the country. The event aims to promote the value of reading and literacy, using an Australian children's book that explores age-appropriate themes, and addresses key learning areas of the National Curriculum for Prep to Year 6.
As part of this event, Kindy H enjoyed making their own maracas which they used for dancing the cha cha to latin music and also learning about alpacas.

Isaiah in year 5 and Wesley-Jones in year 6 attended the CIS Primary Rugby Union Trails yesterday. They competed against 85 boys and both made it through to the next level. Well done!
SUPPORT A YEAR 12 STUDENT INITIATIVE
Our Yr 12 students are embarking on their final semester at school. At this time of the year it can become stressful and filled with anxiety for the students as they try to stay focused, complete assessment tasks and study. This year we have started a Prayer Support program for each Yr12 student. This is a first for MVAC. Every student has been allocated a teacher mentor to support, encourage and pray for them. The mentors are available to help motivate, listen, give advice and especially pray for them.
The staff are excited about the program knowing that it can have a positive effect on the cohort. We are asking for your help as well. Pray regularly for our student body as a whole and especially for our Year 12’s as they head towards their Trial and HSC exams.

SENIOR PREFECTS TAKES ROLL CALL
Last week the senior Prefects started taking Middle and Senior class worships during Roll Call. We are asking that each Thursday morning you pray for the prefects so that the students will be responsive to the message that is delivered to each class.
EARN AND LEARN
Please continue collecting the stickers when you shop at Woolworth’s and bringing them to the office to place them in the Earn and Learn boxes.
Carline family signs were handed out at the start of the year, please display this sign so the teachers can identify your car quickly and call your child/ren down to the cones so they are ready and waiting for you.
