RSL Poppy Appeal 2018

Remembrance Day 11 November at 11am

Do you know what Remembrance Day is all about? It’s our opportunity to stop for one minute’s silence at 11am to pause and reflect on the many brave service personnel who never made it home safely to their families during times of conflict.

 

By purchasing a poppy from the Poppy Appeal box at reception, you’re helping our local Pakenham RSL and Berwick RSL in supporting veterans who have undertaken military service with the Australian Army and their families.

 

With items priced between $1-$5, there is a little something we can all purchase and show our support to our local RSL. Student leaders will visit classrooms during the short week of 7 November (after Student Free Day/Melbourne Cup Holiday) to gather donations in exchange for pins, wristbands and poppies.

 

On Friday 9 November we will have a photo shoot of everyone wearing their pins, bands and poppies at both campuses during recess at Officer campus (11am) and lunch at Narre Warren South Campus (1pm). Remember to wear them leading up to Sunday 11 November to show your support.

 

When our RSL representatives return to collect on the week of 12 November, let’s do our best to fill our tins and put a smile on their face in a show of support for the work they do.

PB4L Report 
Week 5 - Service

Can you remember the Tough Mudder pledge? “I help my fellow mudder complete the course”. Helping others is a must to complete the course in one piece. If you don’t turn up to Tough Mudder with a team you soon find yourself in one. It was nice to have team members provide the muscle in the group to help give us boost up the walls or help pull us out of the water.

 

You can see the photos below of Blessing and myself carrying a heavy log. One of my favourite obstacles was the Block Ness Monster (see photos below). Basically it was a block on a rotating axis that required a lot of helping each other as only two or three could catch a ride while others pushed from one side and other pulled from the other side. You couldn’t have the “Me first” mentality on this one as you had to look around and see who was going on and who was left to pull and push.

 

On the last block our whole team was there except for Sam. On each turn we were asking “Where is Sam? Where is Sam?” You can see the excitement on our faces when we all finally see Sam coming over the block. His response was “Sorry guys I was helping others get over!”

Everyday we have the opportunity to serve those around us. The question we have to ask ourselves is, “Are we willing to put someone else's need before ours?” We all know the Golden rule - “Treat others the way you would like to be treated”. We all loved to be served, so lets start serving those around us.

Year 4 School Sleepover

What a night! Year 4 students enjoyed an afternoon of fun, hot chips, laughter, new friendships and a warm night out on the OCP oval! Tents were put up by students who have now learnt the difference between a 'fly', 'base', 'pole' and 'pegs'! Whether there was much sleeping, we are still yet to find out!

Thank you to Mr Waldrip, Mrs Capon, Mr Capon, Mr Nuske, Ms Taylor, Ms Wells, Mrs van Dyke, Pr Lagi & Helen for you help in running the Year 4 Camp.

 

Well done to all students who made it through the night on their first school camp. A lot of fun was had by all.
