Hillside Public School
Already at the end of term 1 –time flies when you are having fun.
Years 4, 5, 6 thoroughly enjoyed the days at Bathurst. It was great to spend time with Arcadia and Middle Dural. Unfortunately, no large gold nuggets were found!
The whole school have been participating in a squash program run by Raj from NSW Squash Association. The children had fun learning racquet and ball skills with a culminating visit to Dural Squash Courts for a proper game.
What a great day was had by Kinder, Years 2, 3 and 4 creating many wonderful Easter crafts including sun catchers, shaving cream eggs and painted eggs. The Easter bunny visited our school and left chocolate eggs in the Storybook Garden – what a treat!
Years 5 and 6 had a great PI π day where the explored the theory of PI π and its applications not only in maths but in Creative Arts as well.
Students are on the final rotation of clubs with all students loving creating candles, photograph montages, recycled paper and coloured sand jars.
Finally, what a truly wonderful excursion to the city for K, 2, 3 and 4 last Monday. The weather tried to dampen our spirits, so we donned our raincoats and tramped across the city of Sydney on a walking Tour – the Harbour Bridge, Circular Quay, Sydney Opera House, Royal Botanical Gardens, Customs House and Mrs Macquarie’s Chair. A fantastic day with many footsore but happy little people.
