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.
As June 4th 2017 was Pentecost, Students explored the significance of this event in the Catholic Church. They were able to make links and connects with the 7 gifts of the Holy Spirit with the 24 character strengths and how they show these gifts/examples in their own lives.
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.
It has been great to see the students applying their skills in real life activities.

Today students were introduced to their latest inquiry project. Students were particularly excited about the opportunity to discover and research an ancient world but were more excited about the way they will be presenting their learning. Students are creating an accurate reflection of a day in the life of their chosen ancient world using the program Minecraft. Students will deliver a multimodal presentation providing an iMovie “walk through” of their world with commentary and explanation on life during these time. We are excited about how the students can incorporate their learning through a platform such as Minecraft.
