Drawings by Children from St James Lutheran Community Kindergarten
At St James Lutheran Community Kindergarten the inspiration for the heart of our teaching is taken from Queensland Kindergarten Learning guidelines and the Reggio Emilia Approach. This provoking curriculum and approach empowers all children to become self-motivated learners, who are rich in wonder and knowledge. Part of this approach values ‘the environment as the third teacher’. This year we have enjoyed exploring and engaging in activities in our local community and learning what the Redlands Coast on Quandamooka Country has to offer. We have had excursions/incursions to Redland Art Gallery, Cleveland Library, Indigiscapes, a J. J. Richards recycling truck visit and involved ourselves in our church community celebrating our 50th Anniversary. Our children have reflected upon these experiences through their art pieces. Their drawings reflect the statement: ‘St James Kindy explores and discovers the local community.’

The Real Cost of War: WWI Series
Beverley Teske
It is unimaginable in today’s world to comprehend, the “not knowing,” that loved ones at home had to endure. It‘s impossible to understand how we would cope with the loss of a loved one in such circumstances; to wonder and worry what was happening on the other side of the world. As I worked trying to keep each cross separate from the next, amazingly, they fell upon each other, in the same way I imagine the soldiers fell on the battlefield. As a country we must always remember the sacrifice these men and their families made, so we can live the life we do. Lives lost; families changed forever; the real cost of war.
