🗣️ Speech Competition

Last night Alexia and Cecilia represented our school at the annual Rotary Speech competition. Both girls were amazing and we are proud of their efforts. 

Cecilia was judged to win on the night and Alexia was judged in second place. I would like to thank all the teachers and students who were part of this event. 

🏃‍♀️ Off to the Races

Last Tuesday, we were represented by a keen, but slightly nervous group of boys and girls from years 3 – 6 in our district cross country at Ruffey Lake Park.

The following students ran either 2 kilometres or 3 kilometres and can proudly say they conquered “Killer Hill”

Lucia, Piper, Grace, Estelle, Chloe C, Amberley, Lauren, Mila Z, Emma, Zoe, Dion R, Luke T, Jack R, Samuel, Andre, Sebastian, Archie, Blake, Patrick C, Tayah, Evie G, Stefania, Aimee, Madeline, Khrisha, Michael, Christian T, Harry, Andreas S, Christopher, Julius, Chloe R, Alexis, Zane, Nick, Anthony, Christian P, Julian and Oliver.

Special thanks to Shane, Ian and Kristie for their help on the day.

Students that finished in the top ten for their age group were then invited to compete at the Division cross country event on June 4th at Yarra Glen racecourse.

Congratulations and good luck to Dion R, Jack R, Chloe R and Zane on making it through to Division.

If they get tired – they might be able to jump on a horse to get to the finishing post!

⛺ Camp Activities

Our 5/6 Camp at The Briars provided a range of activities built around cooperation, personal challenges and lots of fun! Whilst the Flying Fox and Giant Swing called for a good amount of courage, Saving Teddy and Crate Building were based on team work and ingenuity. Arm strength and a keen eye was required for Archery, with the Low Ropes demanding balance and poise. Our morning at the beach was simply glorious!

PIPs- Personal Interest Projects

Yesterday 3/4CA began their first PIP for the year! Personal Interest Projects provide an opportunity for students to investigate a topic, question or wondering of their choice- developing both their research and later their presentation skills.

In order to give the grade 3 students some time to first develop their presentation skills it was agreed that all children would begin by completing their first PIP on themselves- including hobbies, strengths, interests and some amazing facts.The students were very excited to get started! We look forward to seeing the final results!
