Student Led Conferences
Thanks to all the families who joined us on Tuesday, 23rd October for our student led conferences. This is a great opportunity for students to share their learning with you, and celebrate their academic achievements and next steps in learning. Well done to all students for your focused reflections this week.

Some highlights from the students about last week’s 2 night, 3 day camp to Camp Jungai.
3 things I enjoyed:
Olivia “Possum pull, sleeping with friends in cabins and canoeing”
Lucy “Learning about aunty’s culture, all the activities like canoeing and possum pull because you had to trust your team mates”
2 things that surprised me
Stanley “Possum pull because I had never done it and the food was really good”
Jack “How fun the activities were and how big the camp was where we stayed”
1 thing I learnt
Jhana “How to throw a boomerang”
Harvey “You can make native soup using soap leaves and plants”.
As part of our STEAM program the Year 1 / 2 students had fun and loved the challenge of piecing together their own bird feeder. See below for some student comments.
Archer “I thought it was pretty cool because I got to use drills and hammers”
Ati “My mum and dad were really impressed because I made the bird feeder myself”
Euan “I thought it was pretty nice to make a house for another creature”
Tyler “I liked drilling, hammering and building”
Scarlett “I enjoyed hammering and building from the box that had lots of different shapes of wood”
