Happy Friday to our amazing SFX Family! We have completed another week of remote learning. As there have been no changes to health advice we would like to say - Well done and thank you for your ongoing commitment to keeping our future leaders safe!
We have received some great feedback on what’s working and what needs adjusting. We encourage families who are sending learning through Seesaw, Teams, Classroom and screenshots to continue to do so. We encourage you to contact us at any time with questions, comments and suggestions. As of next week, new content will be added to learning packs. Any new content will be reviewed when we return Face to Face. Please remember that Remote Learning is a tough gig, we want our families to stay safe and connected. If you need any support with this, please call.
Due to how well they have been received our daily Read Alouds will continue! Next week is Indigenous Literacy Week and our book selections will highlight this. Watch out for some very special appearances from our own published authors!
Fruit & Vege month continues. Some suggestions include tracking how many fruit and veges are eaten during the week, making patterns with fruit kebabs, recreate a family members face on a pizza! Please send photos through.
Take care, stay safe, healthy and connected.
God of all life…
May your love and light shine in and through me today
In a way that no mask can hide.
May my eyes dance with the laughter and joy
Replacing my hidden smile.
May my actions of care and concern
Speak louder than my muffled voice ever could.
And may the generosity of my heart
Radiate out through who I am
And how I respond to the world around me
So that others may not see my mask
But your image shining out
Moving in and through me today.

Father's Day Cupcake Challange
- 200 g butter (softened)
- 1 1/2 cups caster sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tbs vanilla extract
- 3 cups self-raising flour (sifted)
- 1 1/2 cups milk
Preheat the oven to 180°C or 160° fan-forced. Line 2 x 12-cup cupcake tins with patty pans and set aside. Using an electric mixer, beat the butter until pale. Add the sugar and beat until the mixture is creamy. With the mixer still running, add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the vanilla and mix until well combined. Add the flour and milk alternately, a little at a time, mixing until combined. Spoon the mixture into the patty cases and bake for 18-20 minutes, until cooked and golden-brown.
