Well done to everyone who took part in the Water 4 Life Challenge. Please make sure any sponsorship money raised is returned to the office by Wednesday. Remember – your first $10 covers the cost of your Life Education excursion fee.
Today we received a special visitor to our morning assembly – Harold the giraffe from Life Education! Harold joined us to launch the Water 4 Life Challenge which involves students drinking nothing but water (with the exception of milk for cereal) for 2 weeks. Students took home their Water 4 Life Challenge starter packs which includes lots of information about the challenge, sponsorship and prizes. If students raise $10 for completing the challenge, then their Life Education excursion fee later this term will be covered! Some of the photos of Harold’s visit are below, including information about the challenge. If you have any questions, please let me know.
We had our very first excursion in Week 1 to the Outdoor Education Centre at Morisset where students displayed lots of skill and courage tackling the high ropes and giant swing. Thank you OC for your wonderful effort and to Mrs Derricott for attending in my place.
This week we celebrated the end of the year with our class party and secret Santa. Thank you to everyone who brought in some tasty treats to share. As part of the OC tradition, we had our annual Pi Challenge – a competition to see who can accurately recite the most digits of Pi. Blade did a super job with 10, Sam came up with 15, Grayson did an impressive 22, Oscar smashed it with 121 and Noah K absolutely blew us away by doing 201! Wow! Very impressive! (I can do 3.14… that’s it). Naturally, we celebrated with pie.
Thank you to everyone who came along to celebrate the festive season at our Carols event. Well done to Miss Hibbert and our talented students for their beautiful performances!
