LOTS TO CELEBRATE ABOUT AT MOFFATDALE STATE SCHOOL
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.
