WORDS COME TO LIFE AT KILKI­VAN

South Burnett Times - - SOUTH BURNETT SCHOOL NEWS - Boyd McLean Kilki­van State School prin­ci­pal

IN YEAR 1 and 2 this term Kilki­van stu­dents have been learn­ing about po­etry and have adapted the poem Six

Cud­dly Kit­tens for their as­sess­ment. They learnt about how po­ems rhyme and use rep­e­ti­tion.

They had fun chang­ing and creat­ing their own po­etry and think­ing about how the an­i­mal they chose might be­have. Ten Snug­gly Piglets

Ten snug­gly piglets in an old, rusty crate,

Snort­ing and grunt­ing on the old, cold slate.

Ten lit­tle piglets in mud with muddy paws,

Scrap­ing and scratch­ing with big sharp, rough claws.

Oink­ing and snort­ing for big mother pig, She’s stalk­ing weird mice so crazily. Here she comes now with a very evil grin,

Here is din­ner now, let it be­gin! — By Rachel McLean ( Year 2) Four Cud­dly Pup­pies

Four cud­dly pup­pies in a soft, cosy bed, Furry and fluffy and howl­ing at red. Howl­ing and rolling with long out­stretched paws,

At the base of the bed sharp­en­ing claws.

Howl­ing for mother dog where could she be? She’s stalk­ing a grey cat so stealth­ily. Here she comes now with a sat­is­fied grin,

“Ruff, ruff” she cries, let din­ner be­gin! — By Erica Lewis ( Year 2) Six Cud­dly Bears

Six cud­dly bears in an old scratchy house, Furry and rough and hit­ting a mouse. Skulk­ing and slink­ing with long deadly claws,

At the base of the house sharp­en­ing paws.

Long­ing for mother bear, where could she be?

She’s stalk­ing a field cow so stealth­ily.

Here she comes now with a happy grin,

“Roar, roar” she cries, let din­ner be­gin! — By Hunter Hill ( Year 1)

Sun­day Creek Wilder­ness Hike

“Wow” is the first thing that comes to mind when I think about the hike from Sun­day Creek ( Jimna) through the range and down into Booloumba Creek.

In 17 years of work­ing with Ed­u­ca­tion Queens­land I have never seen stu­dents step up to such great heights and give their all to com­plete an ac­tiv­ity like the Year 9 and 10 hike.

This was harder than ex­pected and chal­lenged our stu­dents in a va­ri­ety of ways.

This was not just a three- day bush walk.

They had to carry all of their food, wa­ter, tents, cook­ing equip­ment and any­thing they re­quired on the three- day hike. It was a chal­lenge both phys­i­cally and men­tally and our Kilki­van State School stu­dents were in­cred­i­ble.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to the stu­dents who un­der­took this chal­lenge.

Your strength, pa­tience, per­sis­tence, en­durance and re­silience was amaz­ing.

Cod­ing Sumo Wrestlers

TECH­NOL­OGY is chang­ing at an in­cred­i­ble rate and at Kilki­van State School our stu­dents are learn­ing as new in­no­va­tions ap­pear.

Whether it be creat­ing dig­i­tal games, creat­ing in 3D or cod­ing ro­bots to do a va­ri­ety of tasks.

Re­cently some Kilki­van State School stu­dents de­vel­oped a ro­bot to com­pete in a sumo wrestling chal­lenge in Mary­bor­ough.

These stu­dents not only de­vel­oped some fan­tas­tic cod­ing skills but learnt to de­velop as a team and make changes to their ro­bot in or­der to solve prob­lems through­out the event.
