We will walking together and leaving the school before lunch and returning before the end of the school day.  Girls will need to bring a packed lunch on the day so that we can leave before lunch and make the most of the sun.

If any parents would like to join us, please speak to Heather or Jill beforehand.

Filming with Thomas

Dear Parents,

Next Thursday November 10, Lucy Booth who is the Project Manager on the Digital Technologies Hub project for Education Services SA, is visiting our classroom to talk with students about the excellent work they’ve been doing with the humanoid robot Thomas.

On the day, she would like to film the girls with Thomas in our class setting and hear from a few of them on what they’ve been doing, what they enjoy and any challenges they’ve had.

All of the girls have come home with a consent form which will need to be signed in order for them to participate. Please return by Monday 7th November 2017.

Solar Boat Trials

Tomorrow and Wednesday of this week, both Year 6 classes will be walking up Hawkers road to a Wildy family home to trial their solar boats in their swimming pool.

The girls will be accompanied by their class teachers and Mr Mike Wilmer who has mentored them with this program.

Let’s hope for plenty of sunshine!

Canberra Success

Dear Parents/Caregivers                                  18 October 2016

Welcome back to Term 4! We hope you have all had a restful break and are ready to face the exciting conclusion to a fabulous year. “The Train” has already left “the station” with a busy and productive first day back at school.

As you know our Year 6 cohort has recently undertaken, a very successful educational tour of the national capital. Our students were given the opportunity to participate in a variety of educational programs with a focus on Australia’s history, culture, heritage and democracy.

We were so proud of our girls who exhibited incredible resilience, impeccable manners and demonstrated outstanding knowledge and understanding of the many places they visited.

The Australian Government recognises the importance of all young Australians being able to visit the national capital as part of their Civics and Citizenship education. To assist families in meeting the cost of the excursion the Australian Government is contributing funding per student under the Parliament and Civics Education Rebate program towards these costs. The rebate is paid directly to the school upon completion of the excursion.

We look forward to the term ahead although it is tinged with sadness at the thought of our girls moving into Middle School next year.

Kindest regards

Jill and Heather
