Wow!!! What a day, if you were there to witness our Assembly you will agree that it was fantastic. The most amazing thing was all the students had a blast. We showcased work, performed dances and acted out a story-line. Students showed bravery, courage and resilience to produce a truly memorable experience.
Myself, Mrs. Higgs and Senora Nunez couldn’t be prouder you all.
After the Assembly we went out for some well deserved fitness on the oval.
After recess it was back into the classroom for some literacy. Students reflected on the character strengths they used preparing and during their assembly. Students spoke about creativity, bravery, perseverance, zest, leadership and teamwork. We now have some fantastic reflections to use for the student reports and some goals for future growth. Below are some of the guiding questions:
5HN and 5DP Assembly Reflection – Chinese and Vietnamese New Year

How did you feel before and after performing the routine?
Why did you choose to participate in this routine?
What did you learn about Vietnamese culture and dance through working with Mrs Hong?
What character strengths did you use and how did you use them during planning, preparing, rehearsing and performing?
How did you encourage and support others in our team?
What did you learn from this Assembly experience?

At lunch the array of food was phenomenal, 5 DP and HN had a feast, so many cultures were represented and we feel that this was an excellent way to conclude our celebration of the cultures within our class.
After lunch students had the opportunity to express themselves creatively. The Art lesson planned allowed them to use any material that they desired. Students used sketching pencils, oil pastels, water colour paints, coloured pencils, textas, material, shapes of paper and the list goes on. The end product is still a working progress that we will finish on Monday morning.
We hope you all have a safe & fantastic weekend and wish all families a Happy Vietnamese/Chinese New Year!
