Book Week was a fantastic success and students and staff engaged in a number of activities that celebrated literacy and reading. At the dress up parade we saw a display of wonderful and imaginative costumes and in class, students enjoyed an interactive Book Week livestream incursion. Our library was transformed into a magical area where teachers and Admin staff held entertaining book readings throughout the week. Some classes went on an excursion to the Beechboro Library where they took part in a presentation by award-winning children’s author, Josh Langley. Book Week truly was a wonderful celebration. Thank you to our parents, staff and students for making this an enjoyable week.
NAIDOC Week was celebrated across our school with students learning about and celebrating the achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and their culture.
Students took part in a variety of activities including Aboriginal inspired artwork. Students got creative and came up with a story about how an animal got a certain feature. They then carved symbols and signs onto card to tell that story.
Students also took part in sand art where they wrote a story and then decorated the ground in traditional symbols that depicted their story. As in Aboriginal tradition, the area was then used for celebratory dancing.
