I would like to sincerely thank everyone involved with the Year 6 Exhibition held last Thursday.
The students engaged in 9 weeks of preliminary associated tasks including research, meetings and digital technology requirements encompassing Movie-making, PowerPoints and the filming of their news reports.
They say 'It takes a village to raise a child'. In this situation, it takes a team of staff to ensure that the Year 6 Exhibition is a success.
I would like to share the ‘thank you’ provided by Donna (Year 6 Coordinator) to our team of staff so that you too can read the number of staff who have supported our students over the 9 week journey.
Message from Donna Appel (Y6 Coordinator)
A huge thank you to everyone who supported us with Exhibition this year. It is absolutely a team effort and while yesterday was all about the students, I think it's important to recognise the input of the staff too.
Mentors - thank you very much for volunteering your time to meet with groups and steer them through the 'journey' - we really appreciate the effort involved in completing weekly reflections and ensuring that the students were up to date with their work.
Year 5 teachers - thanks for the use of your partitions and for evacuating your students and allowing us to rearrange furniture in your Great Space for our Opening Ceremony.
Melissa Ball, Jo Taylor & Deb Murnane- thank you for your time and expertise in helping us with assessment yesterday. The kids were desperate to share their knowledge & each interview took ages!
Brent Plowright - thanks for helping to kickstart things last term with setting up the 'Green Room' for filming and providing step by step instructions for how to 'loop' TV ads and 'publish' or 'export' movies. We all missed you here yesterday!
Lou Buckley & Janelle Diggins - thanks for everything you have done, from proofreading and editing work to making and putting up displays and of course the much appreciated coffee runs!
Hanna Le Clerc - thank you for your organisational skills and calm and composed manner in making sure everything was completed on time, set up properly, ticked off etc. You are the queen of checklists and you definitely kept us on track!
Claire Badley - enormous thanks for all of the above, but especially your ICT skills... thanks for filming heaps of news reports, recording all the raps, taking photos and creating movies and slideshows and setting up the opening ceremony with the IWB and sound field (all stuff that freaks me out!). We are so lucky and grateful that you managed all the computer-y stuff
Every one of us contributed to the success of Exhibition in our own way, offering experience and specific skills to ensure everything came together. I hope you all noticed how symmetrical our displays were... that was me!
It's all back to normal up here... until Mini-Fete...!
