NAPLAN and Eisteddfod keep Stan­thorpe State School busy

Stanthorpe Border Post - - NIE PRIMARY PONDERINGS -

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.

Eisteddfod suc­cess

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

per­formed Be­ware

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.
