Touch typing begins week 7

We have had an amazing response to our Touch Typing session and we are pleased to announce that due to the enthusiasm from our girls we will be offering both Tuesday and Wednesday mornings.

Sessions will begin at 7:45am and finish at 8:10am. Please note that this time is only for Touch Typing where we expect our girls to independently and quietly work on their typing skills only. We will trial this for the rest of the term and review it again for Term 2.

Session will start next week on Tuesday 14 March at 7:45am.

We can’t wait to get typing!

No assembly in Week 7

Dear Parents

We just wanted to let you know that there will be no assembly on Friday in Week 7 the 17 March 2017.


how to make quality comments

We have been learning about what makes a quality comment and how to write them, in preparation for the Student Blog Challenge. The girls have left a comment about what they have learned. Let’s see how effective their comments are and if they are putting what they have learned into practice.

Practising our typing skills

With an increasing use of technology in our classrooms and the one to one laptops in Year 6, we would like to offer the girls an opportunity to develop good typing habits. 

BBC offers a fun way to learn touch typing and develop speed and accuracy through playing games.

We would like to offer a 25-minute session each week in the Year 6 classrooms, for the girls to practise their typing.

Please indicate your interest in your daughter attending a BBC Dance Mat Typing session in the Year 6 classrooms, by replying to this post by Wednesday, Week 6. 

The lesson will begin at 7.45am and finish at 8.10am.

Please indicate your preference for either a Tuesday or Wednesday morning and please note that whichever morning receives the most interest will be chosen.

You can visit the link below to see the program called Dance Mat Typing.

Please check your daughters’ uniform.

On Tuesday at the swimming heats, Lauren Seeto’s named school uniform went missing. In addition an un named uniform was found in the change rooms which is not Lauren’s.

We would be grateful if you could please check to see whether your daughter has the correct uniform or is missing hers.

Thank you.

Do-nut forget your donut money!

Thanks 6J for your input with the pun here 🙂

We have been creating avatars.

In our literacy groups we have been creating avatars for our blogs.

Girls will be leaving a comment here so that we can see the avatars they have created.

Welcome to Year 6

Dear Parents/Caregivers,

Today we had a wonderful day getting to know your daughters and setting up structures and routines in the classrooms. We look forward to a great year and meeting with you again next week at our Parent Information Evening.

Thank You

Dear Parents/Caregivers

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your kindness and support throughout the year. We have felt so privileged to have had the opportunity to teach your daughters and to get to know them as individuals. It is with sadness that we say goodbye to them today, but we know that we are lucky enough to have the honour of watching them continue to flourish as they move through the “Wilderness.”

Thank you all for your generous and thoughtful gifts. They are all very much appreciated.

We would like to wish you all a very safe and happy festive season with your families, and we look forward to seeing you all again in 2017.

Many thanks.

Kindest regards

Jill and Heather
