St Peter's Writers' Clubhttp://www.stpeterscaboolture.qld.edu.au/community-news/Pages/St-Peter's-Writers'-Club.aspxSt Peter's Writers' Club<p></p><p>The Writers’ Club meets every second Thursday, at first break, in the library. This term we have been co-constructing a story that simply began with a stimulus picture showing a message in a bottle, sitting on the sand. We will publish the next exciting instalment of our story in the newsletter each fortnight. Please enjoy what the Writers’ Club have written so far, in our yet, untitled masterpiece.<br><br><br><em>The bottle sat, partly buried, in the soggy, salty sand. Crystal clear glass protected the old paper, inside the bottle, that was loosely tied with a twisted brown string. An old brown cork fitted snugly in the bottle and had kept safe the message for many years.</em><br><br><em>Thousands of years earlier......</em><br><br><em>Nautilus was once a happy place beneath the dark sea, in the depths of the ocean until everything fell apart. Queen Oceana, a fair and beautiful ruler, had always kept Nautilus, and its people, safe from the sinister world above. A crystal conch shell sat atop the magical, gold sceptre that kept the essence, and magic, of Nautilus alive. So long as Queen Oceana controlled the sceptre Nautilus would continue to be protected by its invisible shield. But.... there was someone else who wanted to control the kingdom. Someone who had been banished many years earlier for attempting to kidnap Queen Oceana’s precious only child, Marina.</em><br><br><em>Meanwhile at Calypso’s lair...</em><br><br><em>Calypso was fuming. She still remembered when she had to tried kidnap Marina. Within her tight grasp she clutched onto Marina as the child squirmed and flailed attempting to escape the evil sea witch. Calypso had been so close to achieving her victory until the guards of Nautilus rallied together to form a barricade. With guards surrounding her, Calypso had no choice but to release the poor child, Marina, from her evil grasp.</em><br><br><em>She turned and fled, yelling, “I’LL BE BACK! YOU CAN’T KEEP HER SAFE FOREVER!!”</em><br><br><em>The time had come for her to try again. Calypso sat in her dreary lair. Her loyal goblin, Cousteau, handed Calypso her magical mirror. Dead coral, wrapped in seaweed, encased the mirror’s rounded, stained sea glass. A purple, ghostly glow lit up Calypso’s face, as she held the mirror and stared into its eerie depths.</em><br><br><em>“Mirror mirror, in my hand,​</em><br><em>Answer my questions, I demand.</em><br><em>It’s time for me to make a stand.</em><br><em>Tell me how to steal the sceptre</em><br><em>I need to have a great idea.”</em><br><br><em>The purple haze on the mirror faded to black and the mirror began to reveal the answer. At first the words were blurred, but slowly they came into focus.</em><br><br><em>Calypso’s face stared into the mirror and her face began to contort wildly until, finally, she blurted, “Slimy, slithering sea snakes. That’s it! I know just what I need to do!’</em><br><br>​<br><br></p>

St Peter's Day - Friday 24th Junehttp://www.stpeterscaboolture.qld.edu.au/community-news/Pages/St-Peter's-Day---Friday-24th-June.aspxSt Peter's Day - Friday 24th June<p></p><p>We are looking forward to celebrating St Peter's Day with our school community this coming Friday 24 June. We are proud to carry the name of the first Pope of the Catholic Christian Church - St Peter - and we are a living testament to his courage, wisdom and unyielding faith. We can relate to Peter, the hardworking fisherman, as he reveals his humanity through the interactions he has with Jesus. The dome of St Peter's Basillica in the Vatican is inscribed with the quote from Matthew's Gospel (16:18-19) "And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it." St Peter is the ROCK on which our church is built and we continue to be a ROCK in the Caboolture community.<br><br>On Friday we celebrate everything about our school and the contribution that staff, students and parents have made to the wider Caboolture Community over its 72 years of existence. We are a proud Catholic community that is going from strength to strength and on Friday we celebrate!<br><br>The St Peter's Day schedule can be found in our latest newsletter.<br></p><p>​<br></p>
