School events are especially important to us at Caboolture Montessori School as they provide unique opportunities for our parents and families to engage with the school, the classrooms, the student’s work and the school environment. Events bring families closer to the school and we are very proud to have executed three fantastic events in term 1, 2022 despite the term being so short due to the impact of Covid-19 and inclement weather.
Multicultural Day Event
Our 2022 Multicultural Day took place on March 24th and the school welcomed a hundred community members. The morning was colourful, full of music and the costumes were show-stopping. The community was entertained with the sounds of Zumpa, a Brisbane based band who played Italian melodies that transported people immediately to the vineyards of Southern Italy. The event was also attend by our local MP Ali King and all visitors were invited to the library for a cuppa’ afterwards.
The final of our Dance Fever took place the very next day on March 25th. Students had been practicing their moves all term, and were eager to show their parents and families what they had learned. There was even a sitting dance choreographed in Auslan language to ‘The Climb‘ which was a tear-jerker for all present. However, soon after, the students were renergised as they joined in an ‘shark-hunt’ to find their parents and drag them along to dance. Many were just as eager to join in the fun!
Our Third event in term 1 was the Candle Ceremony which took place on the last day of term 1, Friday, April 1st. The significance of this event is in the welcoming of the new scholastic year. While it took place a little later than normal this year, the event was no less important. It highlights that the Montessori peace based curriculum is more relevant in our world today than ever, and acknowledges the Cycle 3 student leaders as they accept their role of modelling CMS Montessori values and becoming custodians of our school ethos.
A huge thank you to our community, our teachers and staff and to our students for making these events possible in this term of turmoil!
