Year 6, Term 1 news


With Term 1 quickly drawing to a close we look back on what has been a very busy time.


During this term Year 6 students have taken part in webinars with other schools across the state, where they developed their understanding of the 4Rs of online safety and how to seek assistance if they encountered online bullying.

Student leaders attended the GRIP Leadership conference travelling into town by train and learning the core strategies related to being a leader.

Harmony Day saw the Year sixes dressing in orange and spending their day building, creating, singing karaoke, improving their photography skills, playing board games  and having a great day playing.

Taking part in the cross country gave our students an opportunity to practise their leadership skills. This time it was our House Captains leading their Houses in cheering on the runners and assisting in the setup and operation of the day. Congratulation to Oaklands house on taking out the day.

Polite Kites Incursion

On Monday the 18th and Tuesday the 19th of March, our fabulous foundation students had their first ever incursion! Jo from ‘Polite Kites’ gave us our own special assembly on Monday and introduced the students to many different kites from all over the world. Over the next two days each class decorated and then made their very own delta kites. The students dazzling designs then took to the sky for a Harmony Day celebration, in which parents were invited to join the fun on the school oval. It was an amazing end to the day and was great to see so many parents flying the students’ kites too. Special thanks to Jo and all of our wonderful parent helpers in making this incursion successful, and also to Miss Law and Miss Bertolinni for organising such a wonderful event for the foundation to grade 2 students.
