Shadow Puppet Fun!

Today we received a visit from Mitch (Nashi’s Dad) from Curious Legends in preparation for a special outdoor performance this Saturday evening of The Tiger, The Holyman and The Jackal. Students enjoyed making shadow puppets and testing them out in the dark. All the details are in the flyer below for anyone interested in coming along on Saturday night. Thanks Mitch!

Swimming Carnival

It was a beautiful day for a swim yesterday and the amazing competitors didn’t disappoint! Well done to everyone who participated in a race, earning House points and boosting team morale. The points were very close throughout the day, with one House charging into the lead by the end. Congratulations to Team Mitchell! Thanks to Mr Slade for organising another great Carnival.

Outdoor Fun!

It’s hard to believe it was only this time last week that the OC headed off for their first excursion to the Outdoor Education Centre at Morisset. Despite the hot weather, spirits were high and it was great to see everyone have a really good go at all the challenges and give lots of encouragement to others. Enjoy our photos below!

Happy Holidays!

My final blog post for 2018! Thank you so much for a terrific year and for all the lovely gifts, cards and beautiful words this week. I have been overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity. I feel so lucky to be surrounded by such wonderful students and supportive parents.

Farewell to our amazing Year 6s! It was an emotional afternoon saying goodbye. We will miss you all but know you’ll come back and visit next year. Delightful Year 5s, see you soon! I’ll leave you with some final photos of Year 6 today. Have a fabulous Christmas and a relaxing break and see you in 2019!

Personal Reading Projects

To finish the term students completed a personal reading project, where they selected a book to read and review and created a beautiful folder showcasing highlights from their chosen novel. It was great to see so many different texts enjoyed by our Stage 3 students. The best from each class are displayed on the boards in our upper hall. So many great books!

NaNoWriMo novelists!

Congratulations to all our students who took part in the November writing challenge – NaNoWriMo. It was great to see so many students keen to take part and embark on writing a novel! Well done to everyone who reached their word count goal. Even though it’s now December, you can still keep writing!
