During Term 4 we have been reading and looking at different Fairytales. On Thursday the 19th November all of the Year 1’s participated in a Fairytale parade!! The students looked fantastic in their dress ups, they all went to a lot of effort to look their best for the day.

We had princesses, princes, pirates, dragons, fairies and many more! The parents even had a dance with us at the end. We all had a lot of fun. Below are some pictures from the day:

The Great Year Five Bake-Off

The Great Bake-Off 2015 was a huge success. The year five students have been busy all this term exploring recipes, sourcing the best prices for ingredients, creating a budget and preparing advertising posters. Over the weekend they met up with their group to shop and prepare their product for the Bake-Off.

On Monday, the 16th of November, the students set up their stalls and the rest of the school came to visit to purchase their delicious treats! Yum, yum!

Year 5 Camp to Phillip Island Adventure Resort

Phillip Island Adventure Resort

6th – 9th October

On Tuesday the 6th of October, the Year 5 students went to Phillip Island Adventure Resort.  Everyone was very excited to arrive.  After saying goodbye to our families we headed off for a long trip but it was all worth it when we saw the sparkling ocean and cabins waiting for us.

We had some delicious food including fish and chips, cheeseburgers, chicken wraps and much more.  We also got to enjoy some magnificent activities that some of us had never tried before.  I know the 18 metre high giant swing scared some people but everyone loved the extremely fast flying-fox.  Other students were very proud of their canoeing skills.  Other activities were circotron, archery, ponding and low ropes.

On Tuesday night we settled down and watched a movie.  On Wednesday night we went for a night walk. On Thursday afternoon we all walked to the beach after buying an ice-cream.
