Congratulations to all of our students who achieved 80% of their stars this term and participated in an amazing star card reward day today. Mrs Bowman did a super job organising this term’s event. There was a range of great activities including apple-bobbing, skipping, a disco, ice blocks, gladiators, teacher target practice, three-legged race and many more! Well done to the OC who were super helpers setting up and assisting the younger students. A terrific day was had by all!
Welcome back to what is shaping up to be another busy and exciting term for the OC!
Next week (Tuesday) our Stage 3 students will enjoy a trip to the movies and lunch at the Foreshore as their reward for running last term’s Year 6 Fair. Notes were handed out first day back and need to be returned to the office by tomorrow. The cost is $5 and they may bring spending money for the movies on the day if they wish.
Coming up in Week 3 is our Very Short Film Festival screening night at Hamilton Public school. Our students worked really hard making these films last term so fingers crossed we have made it into the top ten. Students and families are invited to attend this screening night and I will send home more information closer to the date.
In our Literature Circles this term students will be studying the novel Mao’s Last Dancer as part of our HSIE topic on China. Students have already begun their preparations for NaNoWriMo – National November Writing month. To get us ready for novel writing, students will be publishing some of their writing each week on their blogs so make sure to have a look!
Our excursions this term will include a visit to the CSIRO where our class scientist Dr Graeme works. Later in the term we will be taking part in a regional OC program called Thinkfest which will involve an excursion to Jewells Public school to present our work.
The other big events taking place this term are of course Presentation Day and the Year 6 Farewell in Week 10. Be sure to check the OC Event page as I will be updating this regularly to keep you up to date.
Today we celebrated a terrific term of student achievement with Star Card Reward Day and our Principal’s Personal Best morning tea. Students who achieved 80% of their stars this term got to enjoy a mufti day, movie session, popcorn and a hotdog lunch! Well done to our Principal’s Personal Best recipients this term – Rory and Chris – who enjoyed a hot buffet of yummy treats.
Thank you to all the students in the OC for all their effort and hard work this term! I look forward to a busy and exciting Term 3. Have a super holiday. School resumes for students on Tuesday 16th July.
Well done to the students who achieved 80% of stars this term and attended the Star Card Reward Day on the final day of term. As you can see from the photos below, students enjoyed dressing in mufti, participating in a variety of games and eating ice blocks!
Have a lovely holiday and see you next term! School resumes for students on Wednesday 1st May.
