Congratulations to our College community on running an amazing Twilight Market. It was great to see so many you enjoying yourselves. A huge thank you to Miss Rebecca Thornton and her team of helpers for making this event possible.
It is with great pride that I get to share with the College Community the successful of our Year 6 boys’ basketball team. They are off to the State Championships on Monday the 20th of November, I wish them every success, no matter the outcome the whole school is proud of their achievements and in particular their sportsmanship.
Thanks to all of our teachers and students who are continuing to demonstrate our expected behaviour of ‘we are learners’. It gives me great pleasure visiting classrooms and observing our wonderful students and teachers in action. Our focus on learning is a credit to all involved in the process including our wonderful community.
Prep to Year 2 STEAM challenges - have you heard about the wonderful STEAM challenges being completed in your child's P-2 classroom on a Friday? They are fantastic! It has been great to see students working in collaborative groups to create solutions through a superhero theme.
Our 3/4 students have been looking at the history of Australia. Our year 4 students have recently visited Polly Woodside where they learned about travel, how people and products were transported around the World in the late 1800's and in particular to Australia.
The 5/6 team have been busily working on their own projects through the Genius Hour program. Students have been able to investigate strong passion areas through these projects. It has been amazing to watch how these projects are coming together and to see the excitement in the students as they work to put their learning into presentations.
A further reminder about hats. It is extremely important that students wear their hats in the warmer weather, this week we have had hot weather and unfortunately, I have noticed a large number of students without hats. Please ensure you remind your child to bring their hat to school and encourage them to wear it.
