Hello! I hope everyone is having a fabulous time on the school holidays. A reminder that…
SCHOOL ATHLETICS IS ON THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL!
Hope you enjoy the rest of your holidays!
From what I have heard a lot of people are excited for the holidays. As the weather is getting better there are more things to do, especially outside.
A thing I’m most excited about this holidays is The Royal Melbourne Show. This event only takes place once every year in the September holidays. This year I am going with my cousin and aunt. My favourite part about the Melbourne Show is the amazing rides and the farm animals.
What are you excited about this holidays?
It was ‘Footy Day at St Charles today. It was great to see all of the different colours on display.
The Richmond supporters were very eager this year and began parading to the Adelaide song. They will need to learn their team song for next year.
It was good to see a number of Lions jumpers in the crowd.
On Monday this week all 5/6 students presented their Inquiry projects on the topic ‘Could We Live on Mars?’. As part of their projects students had to design a house, a vehicle and a spacesuit, all of which to use on Mars. Students came up with some fantastic designs that they put a lot of time, effort and creative energy into. Well done 5/6s!
As many of you know, last term our school choir participated in the Freedom Choir Festival. The girls all did such an amazing job and showed wonderful team work and commitment :). The girls were lucky enough to receive a nice reward from Mr Thomas, in the form of a hot chip lunch! We enjoyed the hot chips, some party food and some singing, great work girls :)!
We have been so lucky to miss the rain on our excursion to Casey Safety Village!
Today we practised our road safety by riding our bikes on pretend roads and being safe and responsible pedestrians. We also learnt about fire safety.
Here are some pictures!
We have been hard at work this term being engineers. We had to design and build a parachute which would stop a raw egg from crashing to the ground. Not every eggs safely landed – but we had so much fun testing them anyway!
The Year 5/6 students have been busy preparing for The Long Walk this Thursday. We had a discussion about the significance of The Long Walk and explored Michael Long’s achievements.
