Education Week Open Day – Life for Learning: Celebrating The Arts
It was lovely to see parents, siblings and grandparents at the school yesterday. Families had the opportunity to participate in an arts activity, in recognition of this year’s Education Week theme ‘Learning for Life – Celebration of the Arts’. The school was a buzz of creativity with lots of singing, dancing and craft taking place. Thank you to all staff for coordinating these enjoyable activities.

“I made the Tin Woodman from the Wizard of Oz. We have been reading this book and everyone in our grade chose a character to make. My Mum was helping me design my character. It was great to have all the parents in our room because they could join in with us and we could all share our ideas with each other” Edan 2G

The community was also given the opportunity to walk through the school between 3:30 and 5pm. Our 2018 Open Day concluded with a musical performance by the Year 2 choir.  Many thanks to Flynn’s mum Chelsea who led the warm up dancing.

“I felt a bit nervous to start but then when we got into it I felt more comfortable. We had quite a big audience. My favourite song to perform was ‘Kookaburra Sits In The Old Gum Tree’ because I knew it the best and we sing it at a nice pace” Charlotte 2G

Education Week Tours
Many prospective new families have also enjoyed seeing the learning in action as we have conducted tours from Prep to Year 6, inclusive of our specialist subject areas. It has also been a delight to host the Principal ‘meet and greets’ for the younger siblings of current students who will be coming to school next year in Prep.

Working Bee Postponed
The school working bee scheduled for Saturday 26th May will be rescheduled later in the term. Please check the newsletter or Compass for the future date.
