Throughout the first semester, Year 3 students have participated in a wide range of physical activities during Year level sport. In Term 1, students participated in athletics activities including discuss, shot put, long jump and relay. In Term 2 we started to work with some of the major sports including netball, football, basketball and soccer. Year 6 House Captains coached students and provided support to run the sports in Term 2 and did a fantastic job! Thank you so much to those amazing helpers.
Our Year 6 students once again attended the special schools ceremony at the Shrine of Remembrance to commemorate ANZAC Day. Our school captains laid a wreath at the Eternal Flame on behalf of our school.
Beautiful weather, a picturesque setting and challenging activities were the hallmarks of our Year 6 camp. A huge thankyou to everyone involved, parents, teachers and students for making this such a successful camp.
On the last day of Term 3 6JH, 6BM, 6AK and 5/6C farewelled Mrs Coker as she takes a break from teaching to become a mum. We cant wait for next term when she visits with her new little bundle of joy.
We welcome Mr B into our team as 5/6C’s new teacher and the Year 6 Team leader.
Who would have thought that science experiments would be so much fun and yummy as well.
Do you know why the lemonade frothed up when the ice cream was added or why the bubbles didn’t pop on the wet table? If not ask a year 6 student.
