Year 8 Home Group Challenge
The year 8 weekly Home Group Challenge is continuing to be a huge success. Since the last newsletter we have had the soccer competition and Tetris challenge. 8F narrowly took out the soccer while Josh Busch from 8A grabbed the honours for the Tetris challenge. The current scores with one week left of challenges are as follows:
8C – 240
8A – 200
8F – 150
8E – 120
8B – 60
8D – 60
The term 1 competition is drawing to an end and a champion will be announced but scores will also be accumulating to an overall 2017 champion.
Year 8 Camp
Whilst discussing Year 8s, the Year 8 camp is approaching. The dates are 15th-18th May and 29th May – 1st June so expect camp letters to be sent home soon.
Just a reminder that students are expected to be in full College uniform unless they have PE. The days when the Year 8 home groups have PE and must wear sports uniform can be found on each students timetable on Compass.
Rippleside Park Excursion
Next Thursday the 30th we are heading to Rippleside Park to celebrate a successful Term One. Permission forms have been distributed to students and we would like these to be returned on Monday. There is no cost associated with the excursion for students, so if you have not seen a permission form can you please question your child about this and encourage them to collect a form from the Junior Sub School Office.
Rewards Based Incursion
Each term we like to acknowledge different students for their effort and or improvement within the classroom. We have identified two students from each Year 7 and Year 8 class that we will be offering a relaxing afternoon with pizza and a movie on the last day of term. Selected students have also been given permission forms to participate in this incursion. Each term we would like to ensure that we have a variety of different students acknowledged. Well done to those students selected for our first incursion for 2017!
Horrible Histories Excursion
This week we were able to take a small group of students to the Horrible Histories Exhibition at the Wool Museum. All students that attended thoroughly enjoyed this experience. After the exhibition we were able to also view the Wildlife of Gondwana which captured the interest of some students. To have examples of different dinosaurs where artifacts have been found locally is amazing!
Best wishes to all families of the Easter period and stay safe
