Early Years and Primary
Early Years 1 – Pop Up Playground
On Tuesday, our Early Years 1 students invited their parents onto the campus to help build a temporary playground made of cardboard. This was a wonderful exercise in creativity for both students and parents and everyone seemed to enjoy this new experience. We would like to thank the parents that joined us for this activity – Photo 1 / Photo 2
Book Week
All Early Years and Primary students celebrated “Books and Literature” throughout the previous week. There were many wonderful activities happening in each of the year levels that you may have seen on social media or via Tapestry and Dojo. Thank you to all of the parents that volunteered to read a story to their child’s class.
Field Trips
We are delighted to share that the lifting of certain health and safety restrictions means that our students will now be able to participate in educational trips in order to support the learning that they do in the classroom.   Some students will soon be visiting a rainforest while another year level has a visit to a butterfly sanctuary scheduled. 
Shakespeare Festival
On Friday the 6th of May, our Year 8 students will be participating in our traditional Shakespeare Festival.  Due to social distancing limitations, we are unable to invite our Community to join us for this festival in person.  However, it will be available to all members of our Community in virtual form via the school’s Facebook page.  Performances start at 10:30 am and last for approximately 30 minutes each:
