Term 3 Virtual Assemblies
I know we find ourselves back in remote
But we want you to know, to our families we devote
We have been here this week making things even tighter
So that you, our families can feel a little brighter
We are ready for learning we are ready to go
We are ready for anything we want you to know
So hold on tight, hold your kids to your heart
Sit back for assembly, together but apart
You see that's the whole purpose of our virtual show
To connect you all in and let community flow
To tell you how important you actually are
To tell you we are with you near or far
Be safe, be well, be present, be together
Because online learning won't be forever
But it's what we have now to power us along
So join us now for the getting ready song!!!!!

Week 2 has rolled around in term 3,
and there is no-one else here that could be prouder than me!
You've seen our staff do tiktocks, songs and raps,
You've heard them send wishes, and do intricate taps,
But this week we bring you the best of all time,
A fun happy bear hunt with costumes, props and rhyme,
with a much loved classic, a bear hunt to boot,
It will give you a laugh, it is a really good hoot!
So with screen free Friday approaching us fast,
settle in together and prepare for a laugh,
You all deserve it, we thank you, give a shout!
From Mrs Rowley and the staff, happy Friday, over and out!
Happy Friday everyone and don't forget to switch off at 1pm. It's time to look after yourselves, your families and do something together that doesn't involve a screen.
You have all been amazing this week.
Week 3 has rolled around even better than week 2,
And we have had some celebrating to do!
For remote 2.0 has taught us to go deeper,
Our learning curve, certainly a whole lot steeper!
We decided what was especially clear,
Was creating a tribute to those we hold dear,
And just like we did when family week came,
We do again today in our grandparents name,
They are the ones who most often are afar,
But today it doesn’t matter how far apart we are!
We love our elders, on our heartstrings they tug,
And more than anything we want to give them a great big hug,
Overseas, down the road, wherever they be,
On Grandparents Day we celebrate with glee.
They adore and boast and watch their grandkids grow,
And today we really want them to know,
We love them, we miss them, we can’t wait to cuddle,
As soon as we are out of this Covid muddle!
So sit back and snuggle up tight for the show,
Grandies, we love you more than you’ll ever know!
Happy Grandparent’s Day St Anthony’s
Week 4 - 100 days of Prep edition!
Here we go....
100 days have rolled around in the magical world of prep,
We’ve proudly been supporting them along their every step,
They’ve grown so much within this time, there really is no doubt,
And on this most auspicious day we miss having them about!
If they were here at school right now we’d celebrate in style,
And if we wait until they’re back it will take a little while,
So with virtual learning teaching us that many things can transform,
The idea of a virtual party started to be born,
And clever teachers coming up with groovy new ideas,
Booked a disco, virtually, to dance, chat and give cheers!
So join me now in saying well done I know you all are yearning,
Because today we celebrate 100 days of learning.
Let’s go! Assembly time St A’s!

Week 5 - Spread kindness like confetti
It’s Friday again and the news is out,
That St Anthony’s is spreading kindness about,
They’re sharing the kindness that keeps spirits high,
In uncertain times it’s what gets us all by,
For when there is so much we are forbidden to do,
Today’s special broadcast comes straight to you,
To demonstrate that stage 4 won’t get us down,
We will share things together all over the town,
Share kindness, share food, share laughter and hugs,
Share jackets, share fruit, share chocolates, trade mugs,
We hope that today we can share with you here,
A message of hope that is totally clear,
Something that is even better than spaghetti,
To spread around kindness just like confetti!!!!
Thinking of you all, we know it’s tough. We are here for you today and every day. Happy Friday and enjoy your early finish today. Go out and spread some kindness!!!
Patrika and the super team!!!

Week 6 - Science Week
A vastness of turquoise in a world that we love,
Reflected in skies that soar far above,
Ripples of water and thrashings of foam,
The pounding of waves on the sand where we roam,
This freedom, this life source, this ribbon of blue,
This mighty deep chasm, this power of renew,
With every generation we want to explore,
And marvel at the ocean with wonder and awe,
In science week we keep digging deep,
Researching and probing for the answers we seek,
Asking big questions, being curious of course,
In order to protect our most precious resource.
