​What's on at St Sebastian's



Art & Design Showcase a Great Successhttp://www.stsebastiansyeronga.qld.edu.au/Whats-on/Pages/Art-&-Design-Showcase-a-Great-Success.aspxArt & Design Showcase a Great Success<p style="text-align:justify;">This year’s St Sebastian’s Art & Design Show was another success! As many of you will know, this biennial event started as a small school fundraiser some 40 years ago. At the time, art was being exhibited in one of the classrooms and profits made went to our little school. The event has grown over the years and is recognised for its consistently high standard.<br></p><p style="text-align:justify;">Two years ago, the design component was introduced at the St Sebastian’s Art Show which turned out to be a great success.  This years’ organising team was set up for a big task to meet the ever increasing expectations of the school community, and they succeeded! We hosted another fantastic Gala Event. Over 300 pieces of art as well as various design items were on display. The food was incredible, the live jazz music just beautiful, the bar very popular and well attended, incredible raffle prizes, and record sales through the kids’ artworks auction.<br></p><p style="text-align:justify;">All was enjoyed by many St Sebastian’s parents, teachers, friends, and family as well as local residents, our sponsors, and many of the exhibiting Artists and Designers. Our children also got to enjoy the event at the Family Fun Day which was held on the Sunday after the Gala Event. This was a sunny and chilled-out day with various kids’ activities, food vans, life music, and another opportunity to enjoy and purchase Art and Design.<br></p><p style="text-align:justify;">The quality of the art was outstanding and we had four prize winners:<br></p><ul style="text-align:justify;"><li>Established Artist/Designer Award: Barbara Heath (Designer) “ London Bridge Ring”<br></li><li>​Acquisition Emerging Artist/Designer Award: Cara Hewitt (Artist) “A Day Trip to Mt  Tambourine”  <em>The artwork can be seen in the schools’ office.</em><br></li><li>Local Artist/Designer Award: Ray Cassells (Artist) “Moorlands:<br></li><li>People’s Choice Award: Kelly-Ann Talbot (Artist) “Lonely”<br></li></ul><p style="text-align:justify;">We were very fortunate to have raised over $20,000 though the event. These funds will be used by the P&F to assist the school with contributions towards school resources such as computers, grounds maintenance and buses for inter-school sports.<br></p><p style="text-align:justify;">The Art and Design Show team had a wonderful time leading up to the Art and Design Show. Some of us are experienced event organisers, others had to step out of their comfort zone. However, for all of us, it was a wonderful experience and we are proud of what we have achieved! <br></p><p style="text-align:justify;">​A big thank you to all involved, in particular our sponsors.<br></p><p><img src="/Whats-on/SiteAssets/Pages/Art-%26-Design-Showcase-a-Great-Success/artdesignshowcase.jpg" alt="artdesignshowcase.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:546px;" /><br></p>
Remarkable Momentshttp://www.stsebastiansyeronga.qld.edu.au/Whats-on/Pages/Remarkable-Moments.aspxRemarkable Moments<p style="text-align:justify;">​On Friday November 9,  we will celebrate our Remarkable Moments Day for 2018. This year has seen many wonderful celebrations at St Sebastian’s. We are blessed to have enthusiastic and passionate staff, students and community. We thank you for all the contributions you have made over the year to help our school community thrive. Please remember you are welcome to attend our whole school assembly on FRIDAY 9th November at 11:30. Our students will have a wonderful time participating in a variety of learning opportunities, don’t forget to ask them all about it!</p><p style="text-align:justify;">A blessing is a prayer asking for God’s favour or protection. As our school community celebrates Remarkable Moments Day, we ask God’s blessing upon the day. We will celebrate it with a spirit of thanksgiving and celebration. You may like to pray this blessing in support of our special day.<br></p><p style="text-align:center;">May today be filled with wonder, appreciation and happy anticipation,<br>calling us to be free and spontaneous. May<br>we be refreshed, nourished and enriched <br>as we celebrate the remarkable moments and achievements of the year.<br>May God’s rich blessings be upon us and may God fill us<br> with joy as we go into the day, in the name of <br>the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,</p><p style="text-align:center;">Amen<br></p><p><br><br></p>
A Visit from Bishop Ken Howellhttp://www.stsebastiansyeronga.qld.edu.au/Whats-on/Pages/A-Visit-from-Bishop-Ken-Howell.aspxA Visit from Bishop Ken Howell<div><img src="/Whats-on/SiteAssets/Pages/A-Visit-from-Bishop-Ken-Howell/bishopkenSm.jpg" alt="bishopkenSm.jpg" class="ms-rtePosition-2" style="text-align:justify;margin:5px 15px;width:220px;" /><span style="text-align:justify;"></span></div><p style="text-align:justify;">On Friday 25 October, we had the pleasure of receiving a visit from Bishop Ken Howell who was spending the weekend in the St Sebastian’s Parish. Bishop Ken began his visit by spending morning tea with the staff and parents of St Sebastian’s. Our school community then joined in prayer as we celebrated our whole school liturgy of the Word, reflecting on the coming weekend’s gospel.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">​Our Remarkable Year 6 student leaders gave Bishop Ken a tour around the school. He visited a number of class groups, where students shared their learning with him. The Bishop answered lots of questions – the most common being why did you choose to become a Bishop. The students were amazed at the answer. You do not choose to be a Bishop, you are chosen. Much learning was had by the teachers, students and I believe, Bishop Ken.<br></p><p style="text-align:justify;">​On Sunday a number of our students were confirmed by Bishop Ken at St Fabian’s Church. They were warmly supported by the Parish Community and had a lovely celebration after mass. Congratulations to those students on celebrating this important stage in their faith journey.</p><p><br></p>
