Checkmate!

Congratulations to Noah, Connor, Akira, Hunter and Corey who represented our school at the Interschool Chess Challenge State Finals on Thursday in Sydney. The boys played extremely well given the fierce competition and 5am start, placing 7th in NSW. A great achievement, we are all so proud of you! Thank you to all the parents for your support, chaperoning and time. 

Science & Engineering Champions!

Congratulations to the OC who were the winners at today’s Science & Engineering Challenge! Students did a fantastic job working through a series of STEM challenges which included bridge building, creating a bionic hand, designing a chair, creating an earthquake-proof tower, wiring a city with electricity and creating secret coded messages to send via fibre optic rods. Well done to everyone for their team work, problem solving and creativity. It’s been a huge week, so enjoy a relaxing weekend!


Super Spellers!

Congratulations to everyone who had a go in today’s Premier’s Spelling Bee event. It was wonderful to have so many students from our class be brave and give it a shot. It was a tough event, with our 4 top spellers – Emma, Celeste, Noah and Chelsea battling it out for the top spot. Well done to Chelsea who claimed 1st place, followed by Noah in 2nd and Emma and Celeste equal 3rd. Chelsea and Noah will join our Stage 2 winners in representing our school at the regional finals later this term. Certificates for all participants will be awarded at Monday’s assembly. Thank you to the parents and grandparents who came along to watch and support our children today.

Wonderful Writers

Well done to our wonderful writers who received a letter from the Write4Fun competition today about making it into the second round of judging. It was great to have so many students receive an Achievement Award and a Certificate of Excellence for our school. Fingers crossed for when the winners are announced later this month. 

Chess Champions!

Congratulations to all our super chess players who did an amazing job representing our school at the Interschool Chess Challenge today at HSPA. We won the primary division, earning us a place in the semi-finals next term and also had the top 6 highest scoring players in the tournament! Well done Jamie (1st), Noah (2nd), Hunter (3rd), Connor (4th), Akira (5th) and Ty (6th). A great result today and also excellent sportsmanship, camaraderie and enthusiasm. Congratulations, everyone!

Tigh-Wizard Tournament

What a magical day! Congratulations to all of our students who did an amazing job today during our first ever Tigh-Wizard Tournament. We were so impressed by the effort and creativity of costumes – you all looked awesome! We started the tournament off with a fashion parade where teams strutted down the runway displaying their costumes and beautifully designed team crests. Everyone actively took part in the many challenges we had on offer including Maths Mayhem, Maze Runner STEM, Sporting Circuits, Speaking ‘Um’ Challenge and a range of tricky trivia tasks. Well done to Team Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children who placed 1st at the end of the day, closely followed by Team Star Wars in 2nd and Team Harry Potter in 3rd. Thank you for a fantastically fun day, what a great way to finish off the term!
