The Memorial Garden around the flagpole is now complete. The plaque was installed on Friday 26 June. A very big thank you to the volunteers who helped with the spreading of soil, planting and mulching of this new garden.
On Monday 22nd June our Year 6 students attended an enrichment day at Wollongong High School of the Performing Arts (WHSPA). The day was designed to provide the students with a taste of life in high school. They participated in a range of activities including science experiments that tested water acidity and surface tension, creative writing, dramatic expression, visual arts, and sporting activities. It was a great day and all of the students were enthusiastic and very well behaved. They all also were treated to a barbecue lunch provided by WHSPA students. A further transition to high school day will be held on Thursday 3rd December 2015.
The P & C and volunteers had a lovely morning on Sunday 21 June. There was a mix of painting of the snake and hopscotch games and completing the Memorial Garden around the flagpole. Both tasks were completed with assistance from parents, teachers and students. Thank you P & C for organising the working bee and to all the volunteers who came along and helped.
Imagine a day full of fun and singing, well that’s what we experienced. On Wednesday 17 June the choir set off on a bus to Corrimal East PS. From the second we got off the bus, we were all excited to start singing.
Our first song was ‘Live Louder’ which got us wide awake. Then after singing a few songs we had a short lunch break. We then got seated quickly to start singing again, but instead of singing together we split into firsts and seconds.
A couple of songs had solo’s and from our school Matilda and Lisa tried out and did a fabulous job. Matilda
got the solo for ‘Listen to the Music’ – she has a beautiful voice.
After recess we did some more singing but then unfortunately we had to come back to school. So I recommend being a part of choir next year
Students, staff and visitors had a great day on Friday 5 June for the school Athletics Carnival. The carnival ran very smoothly thanks to the wonderful organisational skills of Mrs Hickey, the volunteers from WHSPA and the staff working on each event.
A significant number of students are going on to represent our school at the District Athletics Carnival on 23 & 24 August. Congratulations and well done everyone!
