Brescia House School hosted yet another successful global education exchange - this time with our Ursuline sister school from Sainte Ursule in Paris.

As the sun set, the host families were given an opportunity to meet with the guests that have helped strengthen the Serviam Sisterhood across the seas.

Thank you to everyone who assisted in making this exchange possible.

There was a lively and enthusiastic atmosphere at the inter-house swim gala this year.

The newly appointed house captains used their leadership skills with aplomb during the event and got their girls to support their teams with gusto and energy. This was particularly evident at the awards when both Brescia and Merici shared the Spirit Trophy.

The competition between Merici and Laurus for the Points Trophy was very close throughout most of the gala. In the end, once the scores were tallied, Laurus emerged as victors amidst great celebration.

The Grade R girls celebrated Ash Wednesday and had ashes, that had been blessed by Father Keith placed on their foreheads by our religion teacher Mrs Toldo. Even Annie our puppet had ashes put on her forehead and she told the children what Ash Wednesday was all about. We decided as a class that we were going to give up being unkind to each other for 40 days as a sacrifice to God and the discussion lead to "if you do something kind for 40 days, it will become a habit and will become second nature to your behaviour.

Eight avid Grade 6 readers were selected to represent Brescia House School at the annual international Kids' Lit competition, held at St John's College on 12th February. The girls coped magnificently and held their own when faced with difficult questions. Unfortunately we were not placed, but the competition of 40 schools was tough. However, the experience was enjoyable, electrically charged and a good reminder that literature, both classic and modern, is still very much alive.

Brescia is ranked fifth, out of nine schools, after this first event of the season. Well done, girls.
