Mission Day June 2nd

Please remember this FRIDAY 2nd JUNE is Mission Day at school. Students are invited to wear casual clothes for a gold coin donation that will go towards the charities that we support: Loreto Vietnam Orphanage, Catherine House and Fred’s Van.

A reminder that the canteen WILL NOT BE OPEN AT ALL on Friday as the canteen staff will be busy making soup for the students that have ordered this special.

Below is a the outlined timetable:

Parents are welcome to attend the Mission Day activities beginning at 1:00pm.

Thank you for all your support

Pope Francis Cup

Well done to all of the 6/7 students who helped to make Friday a magnificent day. We held the inaugural Pope Francis Cup against St Thomas Goodwood, participating in the sports…aussie rules, soccer and netball. The day was finished off with a shared lunch and a National Sorry day provocation. There were smiles all round and some new friendships formed. We look forward to meeting up again for some further collaboration later in the year.

Mission Day – Design and Technology

Today we commenced the construction of our cardboard arcade games that will be used for 5/6MN and 6/7NB’s Mission Day Stall. Last week students formed groups, brainstorming ideas for how their arcade game would work. Today we began building them. Things that we noticed included the great collaboration that groups worked with and the wonderful creativity in the way ideas have been conceptualised and now constructed. We think that this stall will provide the school community with a lot of enjoyment and are looking forward to raising lots of money for charity on Mission Day (Friday Week 5). Below are some progress photo’s…stay tuned for the final products.

 

 

5/6MN & 5/6PA Camp

 

TODAY students in 5/6MN received their camp notices.

 

The students are very excited. This year the year 5/6 students will be attending Illawonga Camp, a nature based educational camp program focussing on the Murray River.

The camp will be held in Week 9, Term 2. We will depart school on Monday 26th June at 9:15am and we will return by 3:00pm on Wednesday 28th June. Classes attending this camp are 5/6PA and 5/6MN.

Please return all forms ASAP, and no later than Friday 16th June.

Today in the Library

Today in the library students again lead the learning with 4 students (Dempsey, Shivdeep, Matios and Francis) presenting the book Mad Magpie to the class. After reading the book the students reflected on the narrative having a discussion about themes such as inclusivity, choices, fairness, thoughtfulness, kindness and self regulation. It was very pleasing to see the students again take ownership of their time in the library.

Today in Numeracy

Today in numeracy we commenced investigating data collection and the varying ways it can be represented. Students were asked to survey the class to develop a data set and then present the collated data in forms including dot plot, stem and leaf plot and column graphs.
