Student Voice Drawing and Photography Competition

Drawing and Photography Competition

The upcoming drawing and photography competition is being promoted to our school as a fun, enjoyable and an optional student activity. There are two competitions but one student may only enter one competition for a fair game. Both competitions are already underway and the entries must be given to your classroom teacher by the 10th of August.

  • The drawing competition is open for all ages, foundation to year six, whereas the photography competition is only open for years three to six.
  • We are following a specific theme of sport/action for only our drawing competition and our photography competition has no theme.
  • All drawings and photos must be labelled on the back with the students’ name and class. Drawings are to be on an A4 piece of paper.
  • All of the drawing entries are not to be traced or printed and all photograph entries are to be original work and no selfies please!
  • If you are planning to take a photo of someone else you truly must have the person’s permission.
  • Thank you for your time and we hope to see you enter

Crazy Accessories Day – Thank you

Thank you to all of the students who wore their crazy accessories to celebrate the last day of school 2015 and raise money for the ‘Friends of Sammy Joe Foundation.’

I am pleased to announce that we raised a total of $257.35!

Despite the weather, we had many wigs, headbands, sunglasses, caps and other accessories.

Student Voice Nursing Home Visit

Student Voice Volunteer Day

On Friday, the 27th of November, the student voice team volunteered their time at the Opal Roxburgh Aged Care Facility in Meadow Heights.

Each student made a short presentation to showcase their hobbies/talents/achievements. The students then played bingo with the residents and then read to them and chatted. We had a great time and the students and residents were sad when it was time to leave!

Congratulations to the student voice members Jalle, Ben, Daniel, Eden, Sandu, Zain, Samantha and Selim; and to school captains and vice captains Darcy, Joshua, James and Isabelle for volunteering their time, and for demonstrating their strong leadership skills and strengthening their links with the local community.

A big thank you to teacher Mareeka Papadopolous for organising the visit and to parent helper Lisa Kenos for her time.
