From the Principal

Hello everyone,

Summer has arrived with a blast of heat and everywhere in the school people are busy working on end-of-year activities. This is a time of endings and transitions as students start moving classrooms and preparing for what will come next year. Our older Kindergarten children are preparing for the move into Class 1 and their final Kindy festival in the last week of school. Our Class 6 children have been doing some transition activities in preparation for their move into the High School and our Year 10 students are preparing to sit their exams.

With all this activity, it has been lovely to pause during the week and enjoy some of the really lovely things happening across the school. I have really enjoyed listening to the ensemble perform for the Primary School and then listening to the sounds of the Class 6 musical performance floating up the hill. I have also enjoyed calling in to see Class 3 rehearsing their play and then going down to the D&T room to watch some of our High School students casting aluminium to make a range of beautiful and functional items (it’s a really interesting process).

Yesterday our Year 9 students worked with great focus to put together the Zonta birthing kits. The students had fundraised to purchase the materials and then worked carefully together to assemble kits which will go to women living in developing countries to help reduce the risk of infection during childbirth. It is great to see our students working together to support such a great cause.

Finally, this Wednesday our staff gathered together for a staff photo. It is quite a few years since we have done this, so it was great to come together to capture a moment in the life of the school. I hope you enjoy the photo. (Ric couldn’t resist adding his own little ‘footy photo’ theme to the picture.)

Peace
Nerrida

Year 8 Tobias

tobias2016

A big congratulations to the Year 8 students on producing some wonderful Tobias projects this year. Tobias is a year long design based project for all Year 8 students. Students are strongly encouraged to find a mentor outside of school to help guide them through this process. We spend 1 hour a week in class formulating a project proposal, developing, analysing ideas and evaluating design projects.

A huge heart felt thankyou to all the mentors in the community who helped guide Year 8 students throughout the year. We know it is a huge commitment and we also send a lot of gratitude for the work you put in. Some of the projects produced are of industry standard and it was a wonderful presentation night. Brooke did a wonderful job preparing these students for their confident and entertaining speeches.

Year 9 ~ Zonta Birthing Kits

2016 saw our Year 9 students working on various projects as part of their community service program. One of their aims was to raise money to purchase equipment for Birthing Kits Foundation Australia.

This week Shannon Morris and three midwives came to assist Year 9 in putting 600 packs together.
These kits will be distributed to remote regions of developing countries with the assistance of a health professional who gives instructions on how to use the kits correctly and dispose of the waste safely. Giving women hygienic births and decreasing infant and maternal mortality.birth-kits
