Week 10 term 2

Tuesday was a long day with Parent-Teacher interviews in the afternoon and evening. This was a great opportunity to discuss students learning after reports going home last week. We hope they were helpful and informative. I enjoyed meeting some parents for the first time and touching base again with others.

We have been doing lots of Maths testing this week- post tests to determine what progress has been made and pretests so we can regroup for next term and plan to address needs. It has been reassuring to see such wonderful progress over the term as some students have gone up in leaps and bounds.

The students had their last basketball coaching session today and music with Mrs Houtman-Zouwe. So much for her retirement- she has been in most days this week!

The students enjoyed a relaxing RICH Reward session on Thursday afternoon- either watching a movie or using devices and being treated to some lollies.  Another group of children helped to plant up the seedling in the tree unit for Trees for Survival. We got the job done quite easily and before the rain let loose.

We have been working on descriptions of our environments this week and we have some amazing writing coming along. The class has been designing the graphics for a skateboard- another art work for Calf Club.

We had our Workers of the Term assembly on Friday afternoon. We farewelled Mrs Dallas who is leaving to have her first baby. Stella and Jak were awarded special certificates, Katelyn earned an achievers sticker for her certificate for being a speech finalist.

Taleah was our Player of the Week, Harry was our Star of the Week and he also topped the class in Mathletics- Boys reign this week!

I hope you all manage to have a break with your families. Wouldn't it be ideal to be basking on a tropical island instead of wrapped up warm indoors while the rain pours down at this time of year?
