LAZY TOWN IS NO LONGER LAZY!

On Wednesday 12 March, students from Prep to Year 1 were invited to join a performance called the ‘Lazy Town - Eat Well & Get Active’ at the Sydney Japanese School. LazyTown captured the imagination of students as it empowered them to work towards having a healthy body, eating a balanced diet and being active.

At the start of the show, things were upside down in LazyTown! Fortunately LazyTown was under the watchful eye of Sportacus, an athletic, super-fit, slightly-above-average hero, who runs, jumps, flips and flies to the rescue. He was always on the move. However, not everyone in LazyTown aspired to be like Sportacus. Robbie Rotten had the intent of keeping LazyTown… lazy! The only way Robbie Rotten could continue eating snacks and watching TV was a new and amazing scheme... to send LazyTown’s SuperHero, Sportacus, out of town – forever! Thanks to everyone’s support, Sportacus was able to defeat Robbie Rotten by motivating the kids to exercise and made sure LazyTown was no longer lazy!


It was obvious that all students enjoyed the show and got involved in all the activities.



HOLY COMMUNION

On Sunday, 2nd March students, parents and teachers of Alexander school attended the Armenian Church of Holy Resurrection to receive blessings and Holy Communion for the start of the new school year.

During the sermon, Senior Father Norayr Patanian reflected on the importance of the ‘Battle of Vartanank’ and its significance to the survival of Armenians as Christians. Like the heroes of ‘Vartananst’, the students then moved forward to take part in the confession and received Holy Communion.

Once again the students displayed exemplary behaviour both during and after the church service. They took part with the congregation by praying, singing the hymns and by following the Divine Liturgy.

Thank you to the parents for your assistance and cooperation.
