Today our school celebrated Book Week – Read Across the Universe! Students enjoyed dressing up and parading in front of friends and family. We enjoyed a variety of performances from our infants classes and both junior and senior choirs. Thanks to the wonderful P&C for providing a tasty shared lunch of sushi and hotdogs. A huge thank you to our amazing Miss Beker for her wonderful organisation of this terrific event. Don’t forget the Book Fair will be open in the library tomorrow before and after school if you haven’t yet purchased some books.

Disco Fever

Thanks to our wonderful students who supported the SRC disco last night. There were certainly some very bright and shiny costumes and some creative dance moves taking place. Well done for making a super effort to make this event such a success. A great time was had by all as you’ll certainly see in the photos below!

It’s Academic!

Custom Glitter Text

Well done to our OC students who participated in the Channel 7 television program It’s Academic yesterday. We left very early to travel to Foxtel studios in Sydney to begin filming by 8am. Our school competed against students from Dapto and Dubbo primary. We enjoyed our very own luxury green room where we were able to watch the program while it was being filmed. Some of the highlights of the day included hair and make up for our superstar contestants as well as the random spotlight questions which our students excelled at! Unfortunately our episodes won’t be aired until next year and we will receive a DVD of the episodes after broadcast. Prizes for contestants should hopefully arrive soon!
