Wow! What a great way to celebrate Education Week. We had an abundant number of parents, grandparents, and friends visit our school yesterday. The day started with an assembly in the Hall where we heard a wonderful poem written by Antony and Olivia from Year 6.
Grandparents share all their love and always lift us up above.
In their eyes we can do no wrong, they make us feel safe like we belong.
They care for us and understand when we’re in need of a helping hand.
They give us hugs when we’re upset and tell us there’s no need to fret.
Our Grandparents are like our best friend and they’ll be there for us until the end.
After the assembly grandparents and friends were taken on a tour of the school which included visiting classrooms. To conclude the morning activities, there was a special morning tea in the staffroom.
After lunch, it was time for my favourite activity ‘Yard Art’. All the students worked in their small multi-age group lead by a Year Six student to produce fabulous artworks based on a picture storybook. I was compelled before I left school that afternoon to go and have another walk around to savor the experience. It’s well worth a visit to see the artwork before it disappears.
Family Careers Night was a huge success. Thank you to all the families who returned to school in the evening and enjoyed experiencing the varied activities on offer. The teachers did an amazing job. The Aerobics display was a lively fun way to conclude the evening followed up by the passport draw won by Ella from Year 3 /4.
