The famous Ormond Primary School ‘PYJAMA DAY’ is back!!

The Junior School Council (JSC) are delighted to announce that their first event for 2017 is a whole school ‘Pyjama Day’. This means you come to school in your pyjamas!

When: Thursday 16th March

The JSC are using this event to raise awareness about the great work they do in the school community and beyond.

Harmony Day

Harmony Day:  “Everyone Belongs”

Tuesday 21st March is Harmony Day. Our diversity makes Australia a great place to live. Harmony Day is a celebration of our cultural diversity – a day of cultural respect for everyone who calls Australia home. It is held every year on 21 March which coincides with the United Nations International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.

 

The message of Harmony Day is “everyone belongs”. The day aims to encourage people to participate in their community, respect cultural and religious diversity and foster a sense of belonging for everyone.

 

At Ormond PS, all students will be recognising and celebrating Harmony Day with a range of activities. Students will be encouraged to come to school in their normal school uniform whilst wearing “a touch of orange”. This could be orange socks, an orange hairband, a hat, a tissue paper flower brooch, whatever you choose, just a “touch of orange” to enhance your school uniform!

We would also like students to bring in a cut up orange or carrot to share at recess. In the classroom, the students will be engaging in a range of activities, reading multicultural books to start a class conversation about recognising themselves in a global world where “everyone belongs”.

 

Look out for the eye catching orange posters our Junior School Council representatives have made and displayed around school for this information.

Anzac Badges

Anzac Badges will be available for purchase over the coming weeks. Prices range from $1 to $5. JSC Representatives will visit classes so students will have an opportunity to purchase items. If you would like to purchase any Aznac badges please ensure you have your coins ready.

House Cross Country

House Cross Country Championships

To encourage participation and enthusiasm for running generally and the upcoming Term 2 District Cross Country trials, we have decided to hold an Ormond PS House Cross Country Championship on Tuesday 28th March. All students, Year 3 to 6 will be participating and walking down to Allnutt Park straight after recess on that morning at 10.50am. The event will commence with a House Parade upon arrival followed by the races, starting with the Year 3 & 4 students and finishing with Year 5 and Year 6. We are currently working on a detailed program that will be sent to you via a Compass permission form in the next few days but for now, mark the date in your diary..…it promises to be a competitive event!

 

There will be Cross Country training held each Wednesday morning at school from 8:15am.

Grandparents & Special friends Day Prep - Year 2

The Prep, Year 1 and Year 2 students would like to invite their Grandparents and Special Friends into their classroom on Wednesday 29th March at 9:15am.  There will be a fun activity to complete together in class.

 

At 10:00am they are welcome to make their way to the school hall for morning tea, where the students will delight our guests with their singing.

 

We are asking for any parents who will be available to assist with the setting up of the hall/tea & coffee that morning to please let the class teacher know. We look forward to a wonderful morning together.

Footsteps

For the past 3 weeks, we have been participating in the Footsteps program. It has been heaps of fun and everyone has been working so hard. Now, it's time to let all our hard work pay off!! Come along to the Footsteps Disco! The theme is Black, White and Bling! Here is what some of the students say about the Footsteps Program!

"I like the dance, because it makes me happy!" - Georgia, 2B

Year 4 Botanical Gardens Excursion

As part of our Humanities topic about Australia’s first people, last Friday week, Year 4 went to the Botanical Gardens to learn what indigenous life was like before the settlement of Europeans. Some students shared their experiences from the day.

 

"I learned that aboriginal people used possum skins as blankets for their babies. I learned that the wedge-tailed eagle in Federation Square is called Bunjil." - Laura

"I learnt that aborigines believe a wedge-tail eagle created them." - Josh

 

"A smoke ceremony involves smouldering native plants to produce smoke that is cleansing and wards off bad spirits." - Mitchell

"I learnt that the smoke ceremony is to welcome someone that is staying for a short time." - Fonjer

"I found out that the women and men have their own business that only they can know about." - Alice

"I found out that the indigenous teenagers had to climb a dinosaur tree to become a man. The dinosaur tree has a boy cone and a girl pine cone." - Rosa

"I learned that to make a clay painting I needed ochre rock, water and another rock for smashing and mixing the ochre rock. Also, that aboriginal women used digging tools to find food." - LuLu

"To make string, you get straw from Spinifex grass and loop it evenly around your finger, twist the right piece under and keep going." - Zoe

"The Botanic Gardens had so many plants I never knew existed, I mean talk about a giant zucchini! It was taller then me” - Mia 

"The thing I liked the most was going to the children's garden and playing in the water. I learnt about the different types of leaves that go in the smoke ceremony and what they stand for." - Ashton

 

Year 5 ACMI Excursion

On the 6th of March, all Year 5 students went to The Channel and ACMI (Australian Centre for the Moving Image).

 

First we went to The Channel. It is a small place in the Arts Centre. In The Channel children can learn about filming and editing using a program called Movie Studio Platinum. We filmed with different sorts of shots and edited to make an advertisement. We learnt loads!

 

Next we went to ACMI and enjoyed every bit of the Screenworlds, an ACMI exhibition. At Screenworld there were games and activities to help you imagine what it was like in the past, seeing the development of technology on and off the screen. They had games like Lara Croft and Mario Bros from 30 years ago and then you could also see and play the upgraded version. There was such a large difference!

 

Some groups went to Bombay Talkies next to Screenworlds. At Bombay Talkies we found out about how much it takes to make a movie. If a scene goes for 2 seconds it's 10 pages of work. Amazing right? And a long time ago they didn't have sound for movies, so they would have to place parts of the dialogue or script as written text into the movie.

 

All in all, all the children had the time of their lives and enjoyed every moment of being on the excursion.

District Swimming

Well done to the students who so wonderfully represented Ormond in the Moorabbin District Swimming Carnival last week. The students had a fabulous day with the Girls relay with Caitlin, Arden, Elly, and Tilde making it into the Kingston Division Finals as well as Tilde and Toby making it through in individual events. The finals were held today with the girls putting in a strong effort but narrowingly missing out on a place and Toby putting in a sterling effort coming away with second place.  Well Done!

 

Inter-School Sports Round Up

Tennis

The Ormond Hotshots Tennis team kicked off the year brilliantly with a 5 game winning streak including the action packed lightning premiership. Mrs Hosking along with the hotshot captains, Elliot and Jed, have done very well at coaching the team. The training sessions have been going very well with an excellent amount of people turning up and creative games such as king and around the world. So far the A, B, C and D teams have all done extremely well contributing their fair share of points to the overall score. Overall, the Ormond Hotshots Tennis team has done exceptionally well and there's no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
