Excerpt from Newsletter 19th September 2019
Walkathon 2019 - I would like to express my gratitude to our students and families for the fantastic support they have given this year’s walkathon. Whilst money is still coming in, we have as of writing this taken over $4,500.00. Our sister school in the Philippines, Banacon Island School will put the money to good use to install solar panels and to run a feeding program for the many students who need it. I know they will be very grateful. Victorian charity State Schools Relief will also put their share to good use assisting needy Victorian government school students. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
Congratulations - 6T
Well done to 6T students who presented their Rome projects to appreciative student and adult audiences earlier this week. The variety of presentations and the depth of knowledge the students demonstrated in their learning was wonderful to see. My favourite student comment was, ‘wow! I can’t wait until I’m in Year 6!!’
Congratulations - 4/5G
Congratulations also to the students and parents of 4/5G who enjoyed an International lunch to complete their unit of work on International Studies. The array of different foods was amazing and the students writing out of recipe origins were extremely interesting to read. I was also impressed by the wonderful table manners exhibited by the students and their willingness to try new unknown dishes. Well done to you all.
Congratulations - 6S
Many thanks and well done to the students of 6S who used their last formal cooking class to cook a ‘Masterchef’ style cook-off last week. The students designed their own menus, then presented their offerings to the appreciative judges, Shelley, Sue and myself. They were ’judged’ on presentation and flavour of their dishes. The remainder of the staff enjoyed the considerable leftovers after school that day. Well done Nikki and students who allowed your creativity to flourish.
