Week 9 Learning

 I always enjoy looking through the photos at the end of the week and remembering all the great learning that has been going on. I hope you enjoy them too. The kids have been working hard on a variety of projects this week and are looking forward to showcasing them on Monday morning. It would be lovely to see you even if you can only manage a few minutes. Some are still work in progress but most are finished.

Thanks to those who were able to make it to the Community dinner on Thursday. It was lovely to see so many families and there was a lovely buzz around. I think we were all enjoying having a school event and catching up with everyone.

Have a restful weekend.

A message from our Enviro Leaders - From Jasmin and Briana:

Mr G has met with the Environment Group and discussed our worm farm and how the worms are starving.  We brainstormed and have decided that we could have a food scrap bin at school to collect food scraps for the worms.  The bins will be placed around the school next week. Please look at the picture to see what the worms can and cannot eat.

Thank you.

Week 8 Learning

 Lots of projects happening this week in Room 2. You'll enjoy the photos. I've been so proud of the kids working pretty independently this week as I have been out two days on Classroom Teacher Release and Management Release. 

The projects will all be finished for you to come and have a look at on Monday of the last week of term.

Thanks to all the students who played a part in mass today. I was so proud of you and I received lots of lovely comments from teachers (and Mr.Macmillan) about how well you spoke.
