City get­away

THE Year 5/6 stu­dents have re­cently re­turned from a four-day camp to Bris­bane.

They saw many places that some stu­dents had not vis­ited be­fore and thor­oughly en­joyed the ex­pe­ri­ence.

High­lights in­cluded Par­lia­ment House, where lo­cal mem­ber James Lis­ter met the stu­dents at the en­trance and wel­comed them to Par­lia­ment House.

They were then lucky enough to sit in the gallery as Par­lia­ment was sit­ting and lis­ten to the de­bates which did be­come a bit noisy at times.

Ice skat­ing, Lone Pine Sanc­tu­ary, South­bank, a Ci­tyCat ride and a Sun­corp Sta­dium tour were also en­joyed by stu­dents.

Ac­com­mo­da­tion was ex­cel­lent at the Chandler Lodges and cab­ins at the Slee­man Sports Cen­tre, where stu­dents were able to visit the aquatic cen­tre and have a swim in the warm up pool. A big thanks to Kris­tian Crisp for be­ing our bus driver and tour di­rec­tor who went above and be­yond to en­sure the chil­dren en­joyed their ex­pe­ri­ences in Bris­bane.

Health and safety

THANK you to Dr Si­mon Ho who came into P/1/2 last week and talked to the stu­dents about emer­gency sit­u­a­tions as part of our HPE unit.

We thank Si­mon for an en­gag­ing, vi­tal les­son.

Thank you also to Jenica Ho, for many hours work over a few weeks to help the stu­dents ex­pe­ri­ence tie dye.

Half of the school went home with tie dye clothes to­day. They look great! Well done. Those dyed to­day will go home in an­other week or so. We will have a colour day on Fri­day of week 9 and stu­dents may want to wear some tie dye that day.
