NAPLAN and Eisteddfod keep Stanthorpe State School busy
YEARS 3 and 5 students tackled NAPLAN like champions.
They worked tirelessly to interrogate a range of texts, they persuaded Eskimos to buy ice and calculated till they were spare.
A special thank you to the school’s wonderful Parents and Citizens Association for the student survival packs.
The P and C really adds that special touch to such an important week, by supporting the students.
The Smiggle colourchange pencils were a special touch.
THE Stanthorpe State
School instrumental strings program has reaped the rewards of the members’ home practice and early rehearsals, winning a first prize for the string ensemble and first and second prizes in the solos section.
The teacher, Lucy Andersen, was very proud of her students’ success, saying they had played “brilliantly”.
Stanthorpe’s talented drama students performed in the mime section of the eisteddfod and came away with a first place.
The Year 6 students
Technology, written by Miss Radunz, the school’s arts teacher, and students, addressing the reliance that people have with their technological devices and the dangers associated with that.
Using body and movement to portray their message, students morphed into various characters, including Gamer, Selfie Queen, Serial Texter and iPod Addict.
Stanthorpe Spring Stampede
COME and join us on Sunday, September 16, for a 5km fun run. Or for the running enthusiast, perhaps a 10km is more your style.
The event will be based on the lower oval of the Stanthorpe State School grounds.
Runners will make their way around our gorgeous Quart Pot Creek for the 5km run and meander around dirt running tracks to complete the 10km.
Come join us for a morning full of health and well-being and light entertainment.
Mr and Mrs Lee will be entertaining the crowds with bush dance music.
MUMS, dads and carers, if you have a little one who will be turning five before June 30, 2019, they are the right age to be starting Prep next year.
Telephone the school’s office or call in for an enrolment form.
