Teddy Bears Picnic
We were very lucky to have the weather clear up beautifully on Wednesday just in time for our Prep and Year 6 buddy teddy bear picnic. It was terrific to see our students, families and teddies sharing lunch together. I know that during graduation we often see pictures included of when our year 6 students were themselves preps eating lunches with their own buddies and it always makes me reflect on just how much growing up happens in the precious primary school years.
Our school grounds are currently undergoing a number of really exciting and student centred changes. This week has seen very pleasing progress on our new multipurpose courts with the fence removal and the area to be concreted marked out. The newly painted chicken coop pieces are currently drying and will be put together very shortly! The redesign of the area near the sandpit continues and is beginning to take shape. Thank you to Pip and Fiona who have worked hard to design and organise such spaces.
School Social Media accounts
Whilst we do not encourage the use of social media accounts for our students we recognise it is a terrific platform for sharing events and celebrating learning that is taking place at school with our parent community. If you have personal Instagram or Facebook accounts please ‘follow’ or ‘like’ the Old Orchard accounts.
To find our accounts you can search ‘Old Orchard Primary School’ on Facebook and ‘oldorchardps’ on Instagram.
A reminder for all students and parents that we are at the tired end of the term. Early nights and some relaxing weekends are in order for some of our students so that we all enjoy a productive and positive learning time during the last 2 weeks of school.
Have a terrific weekend all, we look forward to meeting with you at parent teacher chats next week.
