At the concert last night everyone was happy.
Lots of kids dressed up and wore costumes for their dances and songs.
At the end all the teachers were singing the goodbye song to the people who are leaving.
This morning all the children from Transition to Grade 3 went to the beach at the bottom of Beach Camp to make community Christmas trees.
They used natural materials and anything else that was lying around on the ground!
All the children worked very hard and really well together, even though it was very hot.
It was such a lovely morning, and the Beach Camp families were very happy with their special Christmas trees.
Yesterday we were helping some Williams 5 kids, writing in Yolngu Matha.
We were writing about Sophia, Grace, Joyce and Tyrone working at their house on the weekend.
They were planting some flowers and they made a foot path.
It was great to see them using life skills, helping the environment, helping the earth grow more plants and working as a family.
Its so quick and easy to cook fresh, healthy food when you have your own garden. Williams 5 kids love to go to the garden to collect produce.
They chop up beans, zuchini and garlic and lightly fry them. Sometimes they add some bacon too. Then they make scrambled eggs and toast and have a yummy feast!
Scotty loves the big pink peach mangoes. Peter loves the green mango that is dark orange inside, the turpentine mangoes.
Our mangoes are starting to run out at the farm. We are very sad because we love mangoes and now we have to wait until next year for some more.

When Emily Gray visited our school, she really liked the recycled art that Jo and the Secondary kids made. When Emily went back to Wulagi school in Darwin, she showed her kids, and they liked it so much, they made some too! We are really proud that Shepherdson students have inspired other kids.
Jo and the Secondary kids have been busy making new recycled art too. Here is their wonderful mural using old textas.
Thanks for making Shepherdson more beautiful Jo!
