The children have been working incredibly hard on the Year Six Market. Below are some examples of advertisements we have created using our skills and knowledge of advertising we have covered in literacy. Enjoy!
Over the past year we have been working very hard to use current research and best practice to evaluate and develop our own Word Study and Spelling program. It has been very exciting and beneficial for staff and students. This is still an on-going process, and we hope to continue to learn and grow together. Our next focus area is Reading and we would like to begin by involving our parents, teachers and students in the review process. Below is a Parent Survey about reading. Please take a few minutes to complete it as the information we gather will be very beneficial when shaping our future programs.
Please mark in your diaries the 27th June is the date set aside for our Student Led Conferences. This is an all day event, which you can nominate a time to come in to have your conference with your child.
The log in details will be handed out in due course, but to help you with any work issues or other plans, the date has been decided.
I hope you are all having a lovely week!
An invigorating on-shore breeze whipped up the surging waves that greeted us upon our arrival at the glorious, sun drenched beach. The excited students enjoyed playing ‘Trenches’ for their initial activity. This was followed by the action packed carnival where teams competed against each other while completing a gruelling relay which consisted of swim, run, board, ski and archery legs. A gourmet sausage sizzle was next on the agenda with celebrity BBQ chef, Mr Beirne, displaying his amazing skill with the tongs.
With the temperature rising, the students enjoyed their free time in the cool, refreshing water under the alert and watchful scrutiny of the lifesavers, however, the time came quickly to return to school after getting changed and rehydrating with a thirst quenching icy pole provided by Cooper.
Thank you to Mr Sweatman, the school office staff, the lifesavers, parent helpers and the students for making the day such a success.

Tuesday 7th February is Safer Internet Day and is a good time to discuss Internet Safety. We will be discussing Internet safety at school and reminding students of our school acceptable Internet use agreement, which is signed by families and students upon enrollment at our school. We have a Prep – Year 2 and Year 3-6 internet acceptable use agreement. Copies of the agreement are available in the office foyer and are included below.
All classes will be doing activities to celebrate Safer Internet Day on Tuesday the 7th of February. There are many excellent resources and games for students of all ages and also informative parent information about cyber safety available on the Australian Government Office of the eSafety Commissioner Office website. The school ICT blog has also a parent page with links to parent information.
