Thank you to those parents who attended the Maths Information Nights for Year 3/4 and Year 5/6. Below are the slides from each of the sessions.
Congratulations to the following Class Captains for Term Two.
This week the Junior School Council reps for 2018 were announced at the morning assembly. The Year 4 team would like to congratulate Asli from 4MP and Emmanuel from 4RW for being announced as the new Junior School Council Reps for Year 5. It is a very exciting time for the new JSC reps and the Year 4 team would like to wish them a fantastic year as they take on board their new leadership roles for 2018. Well done!
As part of their Geography unit on the Congo Rainforest, Year 4 students raised money for the Dian Fossey Gorilla fund. To raise money, students made gold coin donations and participated in a competition to guess how many banana lollies were placed into a jar. Congratulations to Asli in 4MP who guessed correctly! The money raised by students will be going towards the adoption of a Mountain Gorilla in Africa, where they are looked after by staff at the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund.
As part of their unit on Africa, the Year 4 students visited CERES Community Environmental Park. Students were taken on a tour around the park where they were provided with experiences which explored African culture. During the excursion they participated in water collecting and learnt how to play the Djembe. Students also learnt about traditional African ceremonies such as weddings and participated in a role-played African wedding! Here are some photos from the day.
During week 3 the Year 4 students celebrated Italian week. Students came to school dressed in Italian colours and began the celebration by watching a few Italian performances at the school morning assembly. Students also enjoyed watching a musical play in the school gym. The play was filled with laughter and the students enjoyed watching it. During the week students also celebrated Italian week by having a Italian feast in their classrooms! During lunch time they ate pizzas, crostoli’s and different flavoured gelati. They looked molto bellisimo! Here are some photos from the play.
