In Term 4, there will be changes to the timetable. This will provide better learning opportunities for students with 5 x 60 minutes lesson blocks over the day. This optimises learning times for all students.
The beginning and end of the day times have not been changed. Classrooms will be open from 8:30 for student to set themselves up for a day of learning. Morning Activities are provided for students at this time to help settle in to class in the morning, prepare for the day of learning ahead or allow them further practise of familiar concepts.
The Year 6 students are enjoying their camp. So far, they have built crate towers and gone abseiling. Dinner was yummy with lasagne, salad and wedges. Wow Brad and Soren can eat!!! Last night they had a little fun with a game. That was “interesting” and very funny. They slept very well — it was all quiet by 9:40 which was amazing. We woke them up bright and early – around 6:00. Despite it being a little cold for some, they were bright and chirpy ready for their full cooked breakfast. Today it is water activities and archery.
What an awesome Book Parade we had at school today!!! There were so many amazing costumes – some very creative families. We had many fairies, pirates, students from Hogwarts, along with Aladdin, Little Red Riding Hood, the Big Bad Wolf, the amazing Hulk, asd well as characters from a range of books including Dog Man, The Thank You Present, The Snail and the Whale, My Mummy Loves me, and many others.
Staff rom the Early Childhood Centre were Minions and there was even a visit and performance from the New Wiggles. Mrs Garnett was impressed by the level of creativity and engagement of all the children. We had a great morning. Dont forget the Book Fair is open this week betwee 8:30 – 9:00 and 2:30 – 3:00.
Did you know we run a 3 Year Old Kindy Program? Every Thursday morning, a group of excited 3 year olds come along to get a taste of what Kindy will be like for them when they turn 4. If you know of anyone who would like to be a part of this program and join us as 4 year olds in 2022, just pop into the office or give us a call on 9531 5900.
We had a great week last week with students participating in the Faction Carnival Events. The Jumps and Throws part of our carnival was held on Wednesday and there was some new records made with amazing jumps and throws. We had students from the High School helping on the day which is always a bonus. Although we werre worried that the weather would turn bad on Friday, it held off and we had a glorious day. Thank you to all the parents who attended and I am sure you will agree the students performed like true sportspeople. Congratulations went to Djarlma, although we can say all students were winners, with them all trying their hearts out for their faction
