South Burnett Times - - SOUTH BURNETT SCHOOL NEWS -

MOF­FAT­DALE State School cel­e­brated both World Teach­ers Day and Ed­u­ca­tion Week with an in­vi­ta­tion to fam­i­lies and friends to join us for a class­room visit and a spe­cial morn­ing tea.

Stu­dents and teach­ers opened up their class­rooms and show­cased their work and work­ing prac­tices to visi­tors on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 20.

Stu­dents in the up­per classes, Years 3- 6, are es­pe­cially ex­cited on the English unit fea­tur­ing the book Phar Lap the Won­der Horse

From re­search­ing un­fa­mil­iar words to mak­ing model horses and dio­ra­mas demon­strat­ing their new­found knowl­edge, our stu­dents have cer­tainly en­joyed this won­der­ful learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.

And the Prep 1 and 2 class stu­dents have ex­plored the won­der of Noni the

Pony with just as much en­thu­si­asm. Our morn­ing tea was a feast for sure, with fam­i­lies, stu­dents and staff shar­ing plates of home­made treats and good old- fash­ion con­ver­sa­tions to cel­e­brate and thank our won­der­ful teach­ers for their ded­i­ca­tion to their craft of teach­ing at Mof­fat­dale State School. A Visit from Bris­bane Roar is our re­ward

In week 5 our stu­dents en­joyed a ‘ Mid Term Re­wards Day’ to cel­e­brate stu­dents who con­tinue to fol­low our school’s ex­pec­ta­tions to be safe, re­spon­si­ble and re­spect­ful with a spe­cial soc­cer coach­ing ses­sion with a coach from the Bris­bane Roar.

Stu­dents en­joy play­ing soc­cer dur­ing the study breaks and were very ex­cited to wel­come the Bris­bane Roar to Mof­fat­dale State School. Read­ing is our spe­cial­ity at Mof­fat­dale State School

In 2017, Mof­fat­dale Sate School has im­ple­mented an ex­plicit im­prove­ment agenda fo­cused on the teach­ing of read­ing.

This has en­com­passed all of the el­e­ments that make up a good reader.

Our goal is to teach stu­dents the en­joy­ment read­ing pro­vides all ages and we are proud to say ev­ery sin­gle stu­dent has made progress.
