Foot­steps Dance

THIS term our arts cur­ricu­lum was fo­cused on the strand of dance.

Our school was for­tu­nate enough to en­gage with Foot­steps Dance Com­pany, which pro­vided our stu­dents with an en­gag­ing work­shop with a full ac­tion-packed day, learn­ing three dances and learn­ing to chore­o­graph dance rou­tines with their peers.

Stu­dents at Gindie had a fan­tas­tic day with in­struc­tor Jes­sica.

They were as­sessed on their per­for­mances and par­tic­i­pa­tion in the pro­gram.

Pre-prep tran­si­tions

THIS term we hosted our pre-prep stu­dents (for 2018) ev­ery Tues­day.

Stu­dents worked in the ju­nior class­room for two hours each week, to learn some of the rou­tines in­volved with com­ing to school.

The stu­dents en­gaged in a va­ri­ety of arts, early lit­er­acy and math­e­mat­ics and move­ment ac­tiv­i­ties.

Next year we wel­come three prep stu­dents – Evie, Hay­den and Will – all Gindie lo­cals.

Sport acad­emy vis­its

GINDIE was for­tu­nate last week to re­ceive a visit from Com­mon­wealth Games ath­lete Jaz Hedge­land.

Jaz, a triath­lete, was sent to visit us as a part of the QAS4S­chools pro­gram which pro­motes healthy eat­ing and life­style habits, the ben­e­fits of phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity and raises in­ter­est in the 2018 Com­mon­wealth Games.

This was a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity for stu­dents to dis­cuss the el­e­ments in­volved in Jaz’s sport, as well as what it means to rep­re­sent our coun­try.

Stu­dents en­gaged well with this visit and en­joyed host­ing Jaz.

Swim­ming carnival

LAST week stu­dents from Spring­sure, Orion, Loching­ton, Our Lady of the Sa­cred Heart, Rolle­ston and Gindie all par­tic­i­pated in our dis­trict swim­ming carnival.

The event, hosted by Spring­sure State School, was full of fun and par­tic­i­pa­tion from all in­volved.

Gindie stu­dents were ac­com­pa­nied by their par­ents.

All stu­dents lin­ing up to race down the pool and win­ning points for our schools com­pe­ti­tion.

Gindie stu­dents demon­strated great sports­man­ship on the day and a fan­tas­tic day was had by all.
