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!
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.
Last Friday we celebrated the end of the year with our class party and secret Santa. Thank you to everyone who brought in some tasty treats to share. As part of the OC tradition, we had our annual Pi Challenge – a competition to see who can accurately recite the most digits of Pi. Will managed 8, Julian came up with 9, Noah got to 25, Jules and Hamish Mo did an impressive 35, Grayson and Oliver smashed it with 50 and the very sneaky Emma absolutely nailed it by doing 61! Very impressive! (I can do 3.14… that’s it). As part of the tradition, we celebrated with apple pie.
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!
