The Annual Science and Engineering Challenge Day.
3/4L's Assembly Performance.
This week, 3/4L performed a play based on the story, Edwina the Emu. They all did a fantastic job and had the entire school mesmerized from beginning to end.
Stage 3 Primary Ethics.
In Primary Ethics, Stage 3 have just finished their fairness topic with a ‘Visit to Liguria’ to discuss fairness there. The people on the planet of Liguria have poor vision – hence the sunglasses.
We’re starting to think about human and animal rights next week.
1/2H and Minecraft.
The latest addition to 1/2H's English rotations is Minecraft.
Using Minecraft, we create some of our spelling words for the week in Creative Mode and we use any blocks we choose to add colour, patterns and design.
1/2J and GarageBand.
This week, students in 1/2J have been learning how to use GarageBand on the iPad. We'd like to share some pictures and a couple of music samples made by some of the students.

Silver Awards and Citizens of the Week, Week 5.
5/6BM Creating Crystal Art.
Students in 5/6BM used the iPad app, Matter, to create some unique additions to pictures taken around our school.
Check out more from this activity on 5/6BM's class page.
1/2H and Harptoons.
1/2H used a number of books by Steve Harpster to create artworks. Steve Harpster is a professional artist / author / artist (yes, double the artist) whose books teach anyone to draw by starting simply with a letter or number. It's really easy and super fun!
Students stood in front of a giant green screen and described their artwork. This video was then imported into the iPad app, Green Screen by Do Ink, and the image of their artwork was displayed behind them.
Week 3 Awards.
Congratulations to all Silver Award receivers!
Big Friends in Big Places.
1/2H Collecting Data.
Students in 1/2H have been looking at column graphs and how to display data collected from a variety of sources. The source for this week was Ten Pin Bowling scores.
By flipping a few tables on their sides, we made our own bowling alley where the ball could bounce off the 'walls' if there was enough force.
Ten of us took turns having two bowls so we could all graph the scores to make our own column graphs.
It was a lot of fun!
Silver Awards. Week 1.
Congratulations to our latest Silver Award recipients!
Dogs Are Not Allowed on School Grounds.
Did you know it is ILLEGAL to bring dogs and other animals into any school grounds in New South Wales? You can be fined up to $1,100 (ten penalty units) for doing so.
Section 14 of the Companion Animals Act (1998) prohibits dogs on school grounds except where the Principal gives permission. If permission is granted, dogs must be kept on a leash when in school grounds.
Dogs are not allowed on school grounds for many reasons, most are common sense today, but to list a few:
The only dogs that are allowed on school grounds are police dogs, assistance animals (guide dog, reading dog, etc) or a corrective services dog.
As a Government school, we are bound by the legislation of the Animal Welfare Policy to enforce and report on any violations.
We understand that there are moments when you want to take your dog for a walk and the beginning, or end, of the school day works out to be an ideal time. But please, organise another time to take your dog for a walk that wont bring them onto school grounds.
Thank you for your understanding of this matter.
