Thank you to everyone who came along to the CEP Digital Media Festival and supported Tighes Hill PS! It was a great night with all of our cluster schools and plenty of stalls and entertainment.

Watch it below! Stay tuned, we’ll be sharing our extended cut next week.
Congratulations to our super OC who did a fantastic job at the regional Opportunity Class Thinkfest event today! Students have worked so hard this term in preparation for Thinkfest, which is all about problem-solving, team work, research, creativity and innovation. The process has involved researching their topics/problems, creating a skit, writing a script, making a key prop, designing and painting a backdrop, filming a video trailer and maintaining a visual diary of the Thinkfest journey. It’s always such a fun albeit stressful project and students excelled this year with our English team winning their category and our Maths and Science teams receiving Runners Up.We also received lots of certificates for Best Prop, Best Backdrop, Best Visual Diary, Best Script and Best Skit. Well done to Emma who received our school’s medal for Best Thinkfester this year for her outstanding commitment, leadership and team work during the project. What a day! Enjoy a well earned rest tonight OC, I’m so proud of you!
A huge thank you to the amazing Dr Jarad Martin who visited our class this week to share his wonderful knowledge and expertise in mathematics. Students learnt about Fermi problems and used this technique to work out a range of interesting problems, including how many hairs on the average OC students’ head!
Well done to all of our Year 5 students who took part in our leadership program over the past 2 weeks. Students learnt about and discussed the skills, qualities and values of being a leader; listened to a talk from our current school captains, Georgie and Hamish about their experience as school leaders and also spoke with Mr Selwood about the roles and responsibilities of leadership. It was great to see so many amazing students put themselves forward and share their applications for a leadership position. After our session yesterday, all Year 5 students took part in a peer vote for their top 3 male and female leaders.
Congratulations to Rebecca, Seb, Sienna, Issach, Jemima and Rowan! On Thursday 6th December beginning at 9.20am, these students will present their captaincy speeches to K-5 ready for a whole school vote. Parents and family are very welcome to attend this event. We wish our 2019 leaders the very best and look forward to their leadership journey!
