2016 Bow Seat Ocean Awareness Student Contest

From http://www.fromthebowseat.org

Here are some of our student entries.

“We invite middle and high school students from around the world to participate in the 2016 Ocean Awareness Student Contest! The theme is Making Meaning out of Ocean Pollution, and it challenges you to research, explore, interpret, and say something meaningful about the connections between human activities and the health of our oceans.

This year, we challenge you to focus on ONE type of ocean pollutionand “make meaning” of it through art, poetry, prose, or film. We would encourage you to connect it with your own life, your own local community, or something else that is personally meaningful to you, but what’s most important is to pick a topic that inspires and motivates you.

This is an interdisciplinary contest that weaves together ocean awareness, creativity, and advocacy. Advocacy means taking a stand for something you believe in. It requires problem-solving skills, assertiveness, and most of all, knowing when to call the world to action.

While learning from science, history, and personal experience will inform your entry, there is no “right” way to do meaningful advocacy. Use your creativity to make art, poetry, prose, or films that inspire and empower a new generation of ocean stewardship!”

Christmas Party at the Good Shepherd Sisters

Representatives from the Student Council helped to make the Christmas party at the Good Shepherd Sister’s very special. They played games and gave out the colouring books and pencils everyone in Primary generously donated as gifts. Some of the money raised from Halloween was used to buy chicken and sticky rice for the children too. Thank you to everyone who contributed to the Christmas appeal this year!

A very big thank you to everyone for supporting the Christmas Appeal this year. Representatives from the Student Council will be taking all of them to the Christmas Party at the Good Shepherd Sisters Centre to give as gifts to the children there.

Good Shepherds Sisters – Visiting Our Community Partners

A group of children from Year 5 were the first to visit the “Good Shepherd Sisters School” after the long summer break. The group helped to teach the letter “i” to the younger children and enjoyed reading stories to them.

Each week a different group of children from Years 3 to 6 will visit as part of our school’s Round Square IDEALS, with emphasis on Service, as it is an excellent way for them to serve the local community.
