What an exciting week we had with our Musical last week! I'm so proud of everyone who tried so hard and performed beautifully in front of a large audience. Thank you to those students who are remembering to show our school expectations each day. Have a fabulous week.
1G with Miss Gilmour
I can't believe the year is nearly over! Well done to everyone for doing a terrific job in our Musical last week. Everyone looked amazing on stage and should be super proud of themselves. We have lots of activities planned for the rest of the year so make sure your child is coming to school everyday. Our note for our Christmas party has gone home, make sure your child returns it as soon as possible to ensure they can participate in all activities. Have a great week everyone.
release from face to face with Miss Gregory
Wow, can't believe the year has gone so fast and there is only a few weeks left! All of our Musical practice paid off last week when we put on a fabulous show. All of the students should be very proud. In the classrooms, 1G have been learning about local places and how it relates to us. KM love learning about all the different technologies within our world. Dhurrumiri have been exploring Earth and Space and can't wait to make our rain gauge.

Welcome to Week 8 everyone! What an extraordinary Musical week we had last week. We had the most wonderful time dancing the day and night away to FOOTLOOSE!! Our students worked so hard to learn the dance and performed amazingly on the stage. All students should be very proud of themselves. In other news, we have been working extra hard on developing our reading skills this term with a focus on closed passages. In Mathematics, we have been learning all about positional language and how it can help us locate items on a map or grid. I hope you all have a wonderful week!
barrangga room with miss wallace
Welcome to Week 8! What a fabulous week we have had singing and dancing. The Musical has been such a fun project and Students from Barrangga and Dhurrumiri have enjoyed keeping their feet loose while dancing to the 80's hit FOOTLOOSE! In Mathematics we have revisited length and put our measuring skills to the test, measuring lots of places and objects around school. Looking forward to another fantastic week as we go into week 8.
STAGE 2 NEWS
2C with Mrs Curry & Mrs Morgan
A big thank you to everyone who came to watch our school Musical last Wednesday. It was fabulous to see the final production come together with all our students up on stage after many weeks of rehearsing. We hope you enjoyed the show as much as we did! Presentation Day is next Friday 1st December at 12 noon. We hope you can join us!
2V with Mrs middlebrook
What a fantastic journey we've had in Stage 2, especially with our shining stars in the school Musical, where they wowed the audience with their performance of Matilda! A big round of applause for their hard work in singing and dancing—it truly paid off. In the classroom, 2V has been diligently working towards completing all their Key Learning Area units for this term. A special highlight was our engaging dive into Science, where we created a digital clock using a lemon, wires, and copper and zinc plates. We're sure your child will have some fascinating details to share about this experiment! With the weather warming up, we kindly remind all students to bring a water bottle and their school hat every day. In addition, our Fridays have been filled with pool fun, honing our swimming skills. As we head into Week 8, let's continue this momentum—it's hard to believe we're on the downhill run of the term! Have a fabulous week!
2/3S with Ms Carter
With only a few weeks left of term what a great way to celebrate the year with the Musical. It was fantastic to see student's confidence grow as they danced and sang their way into the spotlight. Our budding scientists delved into the world of static electricity. They discovered the wonders of positively and negatively charged objects through hands-on activities. The class dove into a zesty timekeeping adventure turning lemons into clocks. This activity taught them about conductivity and the incredible power hidden within natural resources.
STAGE 3 NEWS
3J with Miss Muddle
A huge thank you to everyone who helped out or came to watch the Musical last week, the students had an amazing time! Stage 3 have a busy few weeks coming up so keep an eye on the calendar. In Mathematics, we have started reading and interpreting data from different sources and in English we have been reading the novel 'Storm Boy'.
3P with Ms Palmowski
Wow! What an amazing performance last week at the Musical. It was great to see so many smiling faces and the dedication students put into rehearsals and the performance on the night was truly commendable. There are still so many events coming up and the Year 6 students are busy practicing their dance for the Year 6 Farewell. In Mathematics, we are learning about data and graphs. In English we are focusing on making inferences using clues from the text and our background knowledge. Have a great week!
3L with Mrs long
I hope everyone enjoyed the Musical last week. Our students have put a lot of time into rehearsals, I think I have been singing Dancing Queen in my head for weeks. As the term is drawing to a close, the calendar is loading up. There are lots of dates to remember and to write in our diary's, from Year 6 Day Outs to Presentation Day even Year 6 Ringing the Bell. So students don't forget to give your parents/carers all the notes that are being sent home. Goodness there is only one more newsletter for this year after this one!!!
Library/STEM with Miss Donnelly
It has been a busy week this week in the library as we've been doing our stocktake. That means every book has come off the shelves and been scanned to check that it hasn't been lost. This has also been the week that our robots have gone off to another school. However, we've borrowed a new and exciting product to replace it that students will get to start to explore next year.
