Grade 5 Camp Update

Due to holiday traffic for the bus drivers, we are just departing Camp Coolamatong now. We are looking like reaching school sometime between 5 and 5:30pm. I will try and keep you updated as we go.

T20 Cricket Tomorrow

Here is some information for those grade 6 students going to T20 cricket tomorrow.

– Please be at school at 8.45am and meet in the gallery. We will be leaving at 9.00am sharp.

– Students need to wear school uniform. 

– Students need to bring their snack, lunch, drink bottle, sunscreen and school hat.

For those students not attending cricket, you will need to go to the office when the music goes and you will be told which classroom you will be in for the day.

Also, a reminder that payment is due tomorrow for graduation bears. Can you please ensure all payments are received tomorrow.

Camp Reminders

Hi guys,

Just a few reminders for camp next week:

– Arrive at school at 8:30am and take your luggage to the shed.
– If you have medication you need to be at school at 8:15am and meet in 6K’s (Grade 6 Camp) or 5B’s (Grade 5 Camp) classrom.
– Bring your asthma form in if applicable (Grade 5’s you will receive this on Tuesday afternoon).
– Bring your snack and lunch for the first day in a small backpack. You also will need a refillable drink bottle and your pencil case.
– You are able to bring one normal sized bag of lollies. Please make sure you are sensible with them or they will be confiscated.
– Devices such as iPods and iPads may be brought to use on the bus to and from camp. They will be collected once we get there. You may then see your teacher to use your iPod as a camera but you are not to sit and play games with them during free time. You are not allowed to bring a phone under any circumstances. No photos are to be uploaded on social media.
– Everyone must bring a hat (caps are fine).
– Bring sunscreen and insect repellent.
– Everyone will need a pillow and a sleeping bag (these are not supplied by the camp).
– Bring your bathers in case we end up going for a swim.

I think they’re all the major things. Have a restful weekend and we look forward to a great time with you next week!

Kids had a Hoot with Kahoot Vocabulary!

As part of their vocabulary study, students formed teams to complete an interactive quiz based on challenging words and definitions. Students were given the definition and four options and had to decide what word fit the definition by answering on their iPad. Well done to The Dominators on taking out the Vocabulary Crown!
