If you have any cans to support our can drive, which is tomorrow, that would be fantastic!
Please send a can with your child to our classroom!
As part of our Graduation celebrations we would appreciate photos of the students as a toddler and also if they did Reception at a different school. If students were at Holy Family for Reception we have access to those photos. Please email the photos or send a hard copy for us and we will return it asap.
We have been studying different Indigenous games like gorri, koolchee, buroinjin and kolap.
In groups students needed to research the rules of the game and the equipment required to play.
Today we tested our games and taught a different group how to play. It was a beautiful way to spend the afternoon in the sun with children engaging in games which involved lots of laughter, new skills and fun. IMG_5320.jpg
Our excursion on September 12 to Endeavour has been cancelled so there is no need to send back the excursion note.
We will organise something else for later in the year.
On Thursday September 12 we are heading to Endeavour College with 2 other 5/6 classes to see a play called ‘143 Monster Avenue’.
Please return the permission forms at your earliest convenience and we would love to have 2 parent helpers come along. Please let us know if you’re able to assist and have a current police clearance.
Thanks for the gold coin, book, dvd and toy donations today. They are appreciated! Students always love wearing casual clothes.
This year for Spring Fair the Year 5/6 classes are making hampers. Our theme is ‘Baking and Kitchenware’. Please send along your donations. Many thanks to the 2 families who have already done so.
