The past two weeks have been an incredibly busy, yet exciting and fun time for many of the students in the Primary school.
Students from Prep to Year 6 enjoyed a hands-on space-themed presentation during Science Week, where they learned about how rockets go into outer space and air cannons. Students then applied this learning into other curriculum areas, including English and Maths.
Last week, students from Prep to Year 5 celebrated Book Week by dressing up as their favourite book character, embracing the theme Reading is my Super Power. Mr O’Brien visited the Parade, reading a book to students and inspiring students to be the best they can be. The day concluded with a Big Dreams presentation.
In conjunction with Book Week, students have been raising money for MS by participating in the MS-Readathon. So far we have raised over $2,000. Should you wish for your child to participate in this wonderful cause, please sign them up!
Year 6 Canberra Tour
While the rest of the Primary were celebrating Book Week, 56 Year 6 students along with six staff members embarked on the Canberra Tour. They departed on 19 August and returned on 23 August. The tour was a success with students gaining a deeper understanding of politics, especially Federal Government and the role of the National Capital. Snow day was well-received by all. A massive thank you to Mr Laisby, Mr Williams, Mrs Everett, Mr Hosking, Mr Jones and Rev. Sarah for looking after everyone.
This week, students had the pleasure of welcoming their fathers into Primary for a special Father’s Day breakfast. Students also enjoyed going to the Father’s Day stall on Thursday, purchasing a special something in readiness for Sunday. Many thanks to the volunteers and convenors of the stall. As always, it was a huge success.
