Thank you to all our families who came and supported our official launch of the Stop and Drop Zone in Beaconsfield. We are so proud of our families and appreciate their interest and willingness to teach road safety to their children by encouraging them to walk to and from school. Today was a huge success and we were pleased to see so many families joining in and sharing the fun. The stickers that had been placed strategically along the footpath between the Stop and Drop Zone and Beaconsfield Primary, have been specifically designed by our students with the help of Kate Beveridge and Mrs Inglis. They looked amazing and all the students and parents that made contributions to the design should be very proud. We hope to see more families walking, riding and scooting to school, especially with the weather improving and knowing that each child should do a minimum of 60 minutes of exercise each day.

Research a famous celebration from around the world and create a mini information report on it. Your information report should have at least 3 subheadings and some diagrams/pictures. Choose a celebration that you don’t know much about.

This Friday we will officially open and launch one of three “Stop and Drop Zones” at O’Neil road. This is a particularly special day for students and staff as they have been working closely with the Cardinia Shires’ Kate Beveridge and Bicycle Victoria to design specific stickers that have been painted on the pavement in support of getting children to actively come to school. A selected group of students have designed the logos that will be officially launched by our Mayor, Brett Owen. The students in grade 5 & 6 have been particularly supportive of our healthy achievement program and are terrific role models for siblings and fellow students. As an added incentive you will go into the draw to win a $400 voucher to spend at a local sports store. We will meet you between 8:15 and 8:30 tomorrow morning.
Today the girls volleyball team competed in the regional finals at Springers Leisure Centre. The girls won their 2 matches to be at the top of their pool and compete in the grand final. After winning the first set, they lost the second but came back to win the deciding set 10 – 2. Congratulations to all the girls who will now compete in the State Championships next week.
Just a reminder for all grade 5’s that you need to be dropped off at Berwick College, not Beacy Primary at 8.45am outside the leisure centre. See you in the morning!
Just a reminder to all grade 5’s that the permission form for the Kickstart Program at Berwick College on Wednesday is due tomorrow morning.
Irrespective of what high school you are planning on attending, we would like all students to attend this excursion as this is a terrific experience and gives you a taste of what high school will be like.
Create your own celebration for your family. This might be to celebrate an achievement that has taken place recently or just to celebrate what your family does for you. You need to come up with a way to celebrate, for example cook something or create a game based on things they like. You might be able to create a song or poem about them. Make it into a big fun event and take photos to document it.
As of Monday 9th November 2015 our SRC Leaders will visit classrooms to sell Poppies for Remembrance Day. Prices range from $2-5 each. If students miss the classroom visits, they can always visit Grade 6J to purchase anytime.
Thank you for your support.
Here is a video of the Grade 5’s trip to Camp Coolamatong filmed using a GoPro. It goes for 26 minutes so maybe find an appropriate time to sit down and watch it. We will put together a video of the Grade 6 Camp when we get all of the photos in.
