Fathers’ Day Breakfast
NAIDOC Week 2017
NAIDOC Week was during the school holidays and we had to wait for a sunny day to celebrate at school. The day finally came on Wednesday and we celebrated the history, culture and achievements of our nation’s first peoples – the Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islanders. We started the celebration with a welcome to country, then the Year Sixes lead the whole school through a rotation of games which were based on aboriginal culture and focused on physical skills that children would have needed to develop in traditional aboriginal cultures.

Three Little Pigs Year Ones and the Big Bad Wolf Hairdryer.
The Year Ones enjoyed reading different versions of the Three Little Pigs and the Big Bad Wolf. Then they designed and built a house for the pigs. The houses could be made from:
Mrs Crimp became the Big Bad Wolf and tried to huff and puff and blow the houses down with a hairdryer. Everyone thought the houses made out of paper would blow away but the Year Ones thought of very clever designs to make their houses strong.
On Friday, 11th November at 11.00am, we remembered the many who have given their lives so that we may live ours in peace.
The poppy has long been a part of Remembrance Day. In Science, the Year 6 and 5M students made poppies from recycled cans to remind us of those who gave their lives so that we could live in freedom.
To celebrate Book Week, classes joined buddies in the library to read, read, read.
Check out the creative entries in the Book Week Dress Up Completion. Children were asked to dress their teddy/soft toy as a character from their favourite book.
