I know you've seen pictures of my room and my block where my class is, but I thought you'd like to see & learn more about the school. Holy Cross is a private Catholic school with 467 students from Primary to year 7. There are about 2 of each grade, with similar numbers to classes back home, some high, some low. I had 27 year 3 students by the end of the year. I started with 24, exactly half boys & half girls, a first for me.
Some of the things that stand out at this Catholic school, is the fact that everyone meditates after second break for 15 minutes using a CD with music, scripture and silence. We have mass at the church as a whole school and also two grade levels will hold their own mass with Father twice a year. When a teacher or adult says good morning to the students, they all respond with "good morning Mrs./Mr...... and God Bless You". A first for Scott being speechless with this one when I introduced him to my class!
