Congratulations to all students in the OC for their outstanding effort and hard work during the APSMO Maths Olympiads and Maths Games programs these past 2 terms. This year there were over 35,000 participants across Australasia, and our class received a High Achievement award for scoring in the top 25% of all teams. These challenging programs require a high level of application and problem solving skills and students should be very proud of their fantastic results.

Thank you to everyone who joined us for our assembly today where we shared our mannequin challenge video. We had lots of fun making it and thought it would be a humorous way to celebrate the end of the year. Enjoy!
This year’s CEP Digital Media Festival is just over a week away! Make sure you purchase your tickets, on sale before school at the silver seats. $5 each or $10 for a family of 4.

Just a reminder for all our Year 6 students: Jane is organising a wonderful end of year opportunity for Year 6 – tie-dying in the Art Cave!
Students who wish to participate are asked to bring in a washed white cotton t-shirt (no polycotton). Students have the option to bring in an item besides a t-shirt eg. socks but it must also be cotton or the tie-dye will not work (no jumpers or caps).
Please ensure you bring in your cotton item clearly labelled with your name ASAP!
This term students have worked hard on a major maths project for the Statistical Society of Australia’s National Schools Poster Competition. This project involved students working in teams to create an informative poster presentation based on the collection and interpretation of data towards addressing a practical research question. Students began by brainstorming a topic of interest, then formulated a hypothesis to address. Some groups created surveys while others collected data or conducted tests. When the data collection was complete, students used Excel to analyse their data and report their findings. Well done everyone, it has been a tremendous amount of work and I’m very proud of your efforts! A special thank you to Dr Elena Prieto-Rodriguez from the University of Newcastle for being our mentor for this project.
Congratulations to everyone who took part in this year’s Australian Maths Competition. There were hundreds of thousands of entrants across the country who participated in this challenging problem solving event. Well done!
