Book Week

OUR book week cel­e­bra­tion was a huge suc­cess, with many chil­dren and staff par­tic­i­pat­ing in the dress up por­tion of the day.

We had a boy and girl win­ner from each year level, who re­ceived a gift voucher, kindly do­nated by our lo­cal newsagency.

We fol­lowed by cel­e­brat­ing as a whole school, where we sat and ate foods from dif­fer­ent coun­tries to­gether.

Each class­room had to dec­o­rate their door, for the theme ‘Es­cape To Any­where’.

A big con­grat­u­la­tions to the Year 1/2 class, who won the prize for best door and cel­e­brated with a pizza party.

It was a fab­u­lous morn­ing as a school community, with many par­ents, grand­par­ents and community mem­bers there to sup­port our school.

Ro­bot­ics

ON WED­NES­DAY, Au­gust 23, we were lucky to have Kira Nuss from the Emer­ald Li­brary come out to work with stu­dents.

Stu­dents were able to learn about and use a range of dif­fer­ent de­vices, which ranged from Bee­bots to Spheros to Ozobots and many in-be­tween.

Stu­dents spent around half–an–hour in their class groups us­ing th­ese de­vices, some en­joyed it so much that they spent their lunch times help­ing Kira and hav­ing a ex­tra min­utes of fun.

We would like to thank Kira for her time and ef­fort. Stu­dents all had a fan­tas­tic day us­ing the de­vices and learn­ing about how they are used.

Un­der 8’s day

CHIL­DREN aged eight and younger were able to wan­der about the great at­trac­tions at Un­der 8’s day.

Spe­cial thanks to The Capella Polocrosse club for bring­ing in their wooden prac­tise horses, Mr Fi­nall for bring­ing in his po­lice car, the fire­men for the firetruck and all the other school ac­tiv­i­ties run by teach­ers.

The kid’s pass­ports were great fun, get­ting stamped af­ter look­ing at each one. The grade 6s were awe­some, help­ing each teacher with their ac­tiv­i­ties.
