The beginning of a new school term is always a joyful time as our students return with renewed energy and enthusiasm. It has been wonderful to see the students return with such enthusiasm and positivity and we look forward to all the creative learning that the weeks ahead will bring.
The opening night of Matilda the Musical Jr was truly amazing and exceeded all expectations. Congratulations to all the students who are part of the production.
Year 5 and Year 6 students have been eagerly preparing for the Principal’s Spelling Bee which will take place next week. The Spelling Bee is an in-school activity and is a fun and educational way for our Primary students to engage with and improve their spelling.
Tuesday, 11 October: Students were provided with a list of words and have been encouraged to familiarise themselves with this list. They were provided with tips on how to do this with family and friends.
Monday, 17 October: Spelling Bee heats co-ordinated by class teachers will occur during class time. Spelling words are randomly selected from the word list. The top three students from each class are selected to move onto the Final.
Friday, 21 October: Principal’s Spelling Bee Finals will occur at 11:00am in the Learning Common where the finalists move through the final heats. Parents are most welcome to join us for the finals.
The Evening of Eminence has become a tradition in the Primary School which is anticipated with much delight by both students and teachers and is a special event for Year 6 in their last term of Primary School.
The focus of the research task which Year 6 students undertake, is to highlight the achievements of women of eminence, referring to women who have used their skills and talents to make contributions to the world in which we live. Students are encouraged to pursue their own area of interest in selecting a woman of eminence to research. This results in a varied experience for the school community where we are inspired by the significant achievements and discoveries of women from areas including politics, science, the environment, health and much more.
Parents are warmly invited to join us for this evening of celebration at 6:30pm on Thursday, 27 October.
Robotics is a popular lunchtime club lead by Miss Perkins in the Primary School and is eagerly attended by more than 30 students. Here are some reflections by students on skills they have developed throughout the year.
"This year in Robotics we have been working on making robots with different attributes and creating codes that will enable the robot to do different things. At the start of the year we worked on colour sensors and having the robot do different things when seeing a certain colour. The last two terms we have been working on movement and our robots have been doing well. Different groups have finished building the robots and are now up to creating the codes. We have really enjoyed participating in robotics this year and we are eager to learn more about coding."
Kate S, Kate H and Abby B (Year 6)
"Robotics is a very fun club because you get to meet new people, work together and build new things such as Kiki. Our first robot Kiki had a colour sensor which made her do different things based on what colour Lego brick was in front of her. Robotics requires teamwork and coding to complete assigned tasks. We’ve coded her to move around, have races and react to different colours by making sound or showing a symbol and are getting more advanced in coding. We can’t wait to see what we build next!"
