This morning, special techy guests from Accenture visited our Learning Area to share their coding expertise.
It goes without saying,
they were impressed with the coding knowledge our 3/4 students already possessed!
Wanted… Parents, Carers or Helpers,
to walk to and from the swimming pool
with the 3/4 students.
There will be two groups, 9 am and 12 noon.
Please us know if you can help.
Whilst getting ready for the presentation of our
Passion Projects, some students are making terrific visual aids.
This week two students filmed their erupting volcanoes to include in their presentation in the coming week.
Congratulations to every student in the

In particular we applaud these Rock Stars
who received medals and certificates!

Book Week – reminder
On Monday, 20th August we will be celebrating Book Week. At assembly we will have our Book Week parade where students come dressed as their favourite character. Please start talking to your child about their outfit for Book Week. It is great if they can use clothes and props from home. We love the homemade variety!!
Following the assembly, students will be involved in cross-age art activities based on the short-listed books.
It promises to be a fun day for all!
Students have been presenting their Passion Projects to their 3 /4 Learning Area. Over the next few weeks in term 3 some will be published in this blog. Keep on checking in to see a sampling of the presentations!
In the 3/4 Learning Area we discuss current affairs to deepen our understanding of the world around us. One such discussion & investigation has been about ANZAC Day.
We understand that we do not celebrate this day but rather commemorate it. Please visit this link.
The 3/4 learning area will be running the Monday 30 April assembly next week.
We shall be sharing some camp videos & handing out medals from last term’s Mangahigh Maths Challenge.
Please join us if you are free.
One sleep to camp… yesterday we sent home a letter about camp. Place it on your fridge door as a quick reference guide.
The countdown is on! Camp is only a few weeks away for the grade 3/4 students and the excitement is building 🙂
Wednesday 18th – Friday 20th April, 2018
Here is a letter from Cave Hill Creek with some information about what to bring to camp and how to keep up-to-date via their website and social media. Students were given a copy of this letter to take home.
