Queen of Apostles School in Riverton celebrated ‘Queenies’ feast day on June 6.
Most of the kids were very excited because firstly, there was no work, and secondly, the day was fun.
The whole school joined in the event.
The first event was going to a Mass which was organised by the Year 3 class.
The school choir sang wonderfully.
After Mass, the children got into one of their 24 peer support groups and wrote their names and a message to Mary on a note.
These were then tied to helium balloons before being released.
It was spectacular to look at and I hope my balloon reached Mary in heaven.
I thanked Mary in my note for giving birth to Jesus.
We then had a chocolate cake and sang to Mary.
Thirdly, there was a quiz. There were eight rounds with 10 questions in each round.
Next there was a sausage sizzle for lunch. Lastly, there were tabloid sports.
There were 24 activities. If I were to choose the best activity, it would be the gigantic ball.
The group was split into teams to see who could roll the gigantic ball around a post the fastest.
I really enjoyed being at the Queenies feast day and I hope the other kids did too.
This is my first year at Queen of Apostles School and I think it’s a brilliant school.
The programs are great for learning, we have a lot of room to play and the teachers are fabulous.
