Welcome to the penultimate week of the 2010 academic year!

Everyone enjoyed Pet Day on Wednesday.  There was a lovely relaxed and happy atmosphere as everyone concentrated on preparing their entries for the various sections.

Waiting for the judges to do their thing was made more bearable because of the fun generated by the team games - gumboot throwing, tug-o-war, ball and spoon (we couldn't afford the eggs!), sack races, etc.

We are looking forward to  our Responsibilities Assembly on Tuesday morning at 11 am and hope you can make it too.

Of course the highlight of the week ahead is the trip to the Aquatics Centre and Rabbit Island.  Hope the weather stays as hot as it was this weekend.  Students are encouraged to bring their togs every day from now on as the pool has been filled and we  will go for a swim each day, weather permitting.

News and Home Tasks Term 4 Week 6

Funny how everyone seemed to be a little tired to day... I wonder whether going hard out for athletics on Saturday is the reason?
Thanks for coming along and supporting your child. It was a fantastic family event.

We are all looking forward to the Red Carpet disco on Thursday night.  Time for me to find some glad rags to wear...

News and Home Tasks Term 4 Week 5

Looking forward to another great week. Preparation for athletics on Saturday is the main focus for this week.  Think of ways you could prepare yourself as part of your home learning - a run, throwing a ball at a target, ... what can you think of?  Share your ideas with the class at roll call time.
