Well done to the students who participated in the SAPSASA knockout tournament match this afternoon. The boy’s were victorious over Mawson Lakes Primary 5-4 in an absolute thriller. We wish good luck to the students in the next round of the tournament.
In Health we have been exploring healthy relationships in our life.
Have a look at what the students brainstormed:
We discussed what a healthy relationship involves and how to spot unhealthy relationships and introduced them to term frenemy. We will continue to explore this topic and different strategies that can be used in such situations.
Over the last few weeks students have busy planning, budgeting and organising dinner parties, exploring GST and looking at how to calculate percentage sales of 10%, 25% and 50% and how to compare prices to get the best value for money.
Today 6/7NB, RG & JW visited the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir (Temple). The students were greeted by volunteers from the local community who welcomed them warmly before a presentation about the hindu religion. Students were taken on guided tours of the Mandir before enjoying recess in the gardens of the temple. It was a great experience with student’s curiosity and engagement noticeable throughout the visit. Interestingly the whole temple was built by hindu community volunteers with all building materials fully imported from India. The hindu community members were very proud of the Mandir and were more than accommodating in sharing it with us. Students came back to class and commenced a research project into the hindu religion where using their 100 languages they have made a presentation about either hindu beliefs, festivals or rituals. A big thank you to the parent helpers Rosie and Fil who came along to assist us with the excursion. Have a look below at some snaps from the day.
