Our Italian Day celebrated the richness of Italian culture. Students dressed as spaghetti, there were numerous Mario's and even a pizza table! Students gathered again in multiage groups throughout the school. Each group decorated masks, lay on the floor and drew on the bottom of tables recreating Michelangelo's experiences, and even recreated Pinocchio. Later in the day students laughed and enjoyed a performance and feasted on gelati. A special thanks to our senora for her coordination of the day.
Our classrooms continued to celebrate learning as parents visited classrooms in the afternoon. There was cutting and creating in the Prep rooms, calculations of lunch orders in the 3/4 area and a mini rich task in the 5/6 area. Parents enjoined learning lots themselves as some watched and others dived into learning side by side with their children.
It was a great reminder that learning is indeed a life long experience. Thanks everyone for joining in on this week of learning.
There was laughter, furrowed brows, smiles and lots of discussion around numbers today. Students participated in multiage groups to play lots of games highlighting a range of maths concepts. It was great to see and hear older students breaking down addition concepts and explaining mathematical ideas to other students. everyone enjoyed the games as well as the collaborative spirit that saw everyone learning together.
Thanks to our Maths team for organising this unique learning experience and preparing for the sessions.
Draw a breath and join us for a week full of learning!

Before school on a Friday morning can often be a quiet time but it was obvious something exciting was happening last week. One by one, students began to nervously pop their heads into the fishbowl to see what all of the fuss was about. Soon enough, a trickle turned into a wave as word spread - The Great R.P.S Book Swap had begun!
Students, parents and teachers alike enjoyed browsing through our selection of books, with a number finding brand new homes. It was also great to hear those students who hadn't brought a book to swap saying things like "I'm going to get this one next week!" A few students even tried to hide the book they wanted amongst the others!
With the swaps so far, we have made a great start to our fundraising efforts for the Indigenous Literacy Foundation. The Book Swap will be open in the fishbowl every Friday morning between 8:20 and 8:45am - all you need to bring is a book to swap and your gold coin donation.
See you there!

This book is made up of lots of short stories. My favourite story in this book is Pinky Ponky the Shonky Wonky Bonky Donkey. I like this because it is a tongue twister and it is very interesting. This book was interesting because it had words that have been made up.
I recommend this book for people who like tongue twisters and funny books.

The Earn & Learn prizes are finally here. Everyone in the school has played their own part in getting new sports equipment and fun activities for the maths garden. First of all we would like to thank everyone who got stickers from Woolworths and turned them into all these wonderful prizes.
One week ago we helped Ms McIntosh with big boxes full of activities and sports equipment. Once we finished ticking off all the precious treasure Mr Jackson asked us to make a sculpture using the new Giant Polygon equipment. Piece by piece we built the Giant polygon set and soon we were adding the mirrors. In about 30 minutes of work we had finished our masterpiece. Who knew, shopping at Woolworths for stickers could get our school these awesome prizes.
