Mother’s Day Stall
Our Mother’s Day Stall was a great success – thank-you to all the families who participated. Special thanks to Chris Stott, the Year 1 Parents for overseeing the organisation of the stall, Viv Vlantis and Deidre Lewis for running the craft station in the Library.
We wish our school community a very happy Mother’s Day and hope that all our Brighton Beach mums, grandmas and friends have a lovely day on Sunday.
Once I made it through to the final round (the second round) I had around one week to practice. On the day I was extremely nervous. But I was relieved when it was over. I was also excited but mostly relived that there was no longer the pressure of getting the words right. I was proud of myself. Madison 6B
On the day of the spelling bee I was excited to compete. I hadn’t really practiced the words that much I had only quickly looked over them so that made me a bit nervous. I thought that it was a great experience to practise spelling and overall I really enjoyed it. Lauren 5C
The spelling bee was fantastic! This year BBPS was trialling something new. We were going to have a spelling bee. All of year 3-6 were included. The way it worked was that each classroom in year 3-6 would have a mini spelling bee and the person who got the most words right in each house would eat to go to the real spelling bee! Then all the year 3 house winners from the classroom would verse each other in the finals. Then the 4’s, then 5’s so on, and the winner of each year level would get a $10 canteen voucher and the runner up of each year level would get a $5 canteen voucher. It was an amazing experience and heaps of fun. The words were very hard and if you didn’t make the finals it was still extremely fun to watch the finalist. But the finalist were so very nervous up on the stage. Nonetheless I’m sure everyone had a blast! Ramon 6C
