Grade 3 Enviro Edu Visit

On Tuesday, 3G went to see Enviro Edu animals in the Learning Centre. They came to teach us about Australian Native Animals. My favourite animal was the sand goanna because they are strong and can climb trees. Corbin 3G
My favourite animal was the Murray Darling Carpet Python. Charlie 3G

Naidoc Day

Yesterday we had our NAIDOC Celebration. It began with a whole school assembly. Elijah Brown made the Acknowledgement to Country, Eva Morgan presented the NAIDOC speech, Jacob Rayner and Leila Williams raised the flag. I was very PROUD of our students and could not think of a better way to begin our NAIDOC activities. Activities included cultural games with students from Chaffey Secondary College Clontarf Academy, Dance by the Girl’s Academy also from Chaffey. We were also very fortunate to have Uncle Willy Hannah and Uncle Ernest Mitchell sharing stories, sharing their cultural knowledge and playing the didgeridoo. Aunty Kathy and Uncle Peter Petersen along with the 5/6 Koori students have painted a beautiful picture to commemorate our 2017 NAIDOC celebration.

Aussie of the Month – May

Rory is the most caring and considerate student. He is always aware of how his classmates are feeling and what he can do to help. He assists all of the students and teachers across the school in many ways. Rory has an amazing sense of ‘what needs to be done’, He continually shows initiative knowing when and how to do things so that it makes the lives of others easier and more enjoyable. He is prepared to give up lunch times and recesses to lend a helping hand.
Rory is highly successful with his work, he never gives up, is well aware of areas he needs to improve in and adapts his learning to be the best he can be. He seeks help when he needs it and always follows our norms to help keep himself and others safe.
The teachers in his area greatly appreciate him and love his sense of humour. All of our lives are better having Rory in them.
