On Wednesday 30 April the school’s ANZAC Service was held. Mr Doug Johnson was our official guest. The assembly was conducted by our student leaders and they did a fantastic job. Thanks also to the sound system operator, flag raisers and wreath layers, the choir and Mrs Morrissey. Mr Johnson was very impressed and would like to hear the choir sing at the combined assembly next year!
On Wednesday 9 April students from 1M & 1/2W participated in some science experiments with students from 4W and 3/4F.
The egg experiment was freeky. The eggs were put in vinegar and it took the calcium out of the shell and made them soft.
The next experiment was with balloons. We put Bicarb Soda in the balloon and vinegar in the bottle, put the balloon over the top of the bottle and shook the soda into the vinegar and then the balloon blew up!
Now it was time for the pencil experiment. We put water in a plastic zip lock bag and pushed sharp pencils right the way through the bag. No water came out.
The final experiment was with milk, food colouring and detergent. We put milk on a plate, dropped food colouring on top and then added detergent and we waited for the magic to happen!
Tuesday 8 April, all of the Catholic, Protestant and Orthodox scripture groups combined for the Easter Scripture Assembly. The assembly was led by our students and many other were involved in the assembly activities. Thank you very much to the scripture teachers for organising this event and the students for some great performances.
After quite a delay due to the box being misplaced, we have finally received the equipment that was ordered through the Woolworths Earn and Learn Program in 2013. We used the points to purchase language, reading, maths and science resources. Thank you to all the families that helped by collecting the Earn and Learn stickers last year.
Responsible, Respectful, Safe Learners.
