Collaborative Writing Fun!

Our Stage 3 students mixed things up today and enjoyed a writing workshop in collaborative groups focused on devices, vocabulary and punctuation. My wonderful group created some excellent pieces using the ‘show, don’t tell’ method and evoking the 5 senses. Unfortunately, we did run out of time to share them all with each other, so please comment below and share your favourite example from today. 

Harmony Day celebrations this Friday!

Our Harmony Day celebrations will be taking place this Friday! Remember to wear something orange or traditional dress for a gold coin donation. We hope you can join us from 12.45pm for our shared lunch and bring a dish for our multicultural feast. Performances from our choirs and stage groups will begin at 1.20pm. Looking forward to a harmonious day!

Healthy Harold!

The OC had a great time today visiting the Life Education Centre at Edgeworth. Thank you to our wonderful presenter, Dale, who who delivered the Decision Making program to students and tackled lots of interesting topics and issues. An information flyer was also sent home with students today with links to the Life Education website and helpful tips for discussions at home. Thanks for supporting this worthwhile program.
