Grade 6 Uniform

Today, your child should have received their grade 6 uniform. Please ensure you have the correct items and sizes that you ordered. If there is something wrong, please contact Noone Imagewear directly, not the school office. It is imperative that all items are named clearly as no more orders can be reprinted if replacing lost items.
 

House Athletics

As per the FlexiBuzz announcement on Tuesday, the House Athletics will be held on Wednesday the 20th March. All students in grade 3 to 6 are expected to attend. As we are now going paperless with our excursion notices, parents will need to go onto QKR to pay and give consent for your child to attend. Please also indicate if you can be a parent helper on the day. Any questions, please see the office.

Homework

Mindfulness

“Mindfulness means paying full attention to something. It means slowing down to really notice what you’re doing. Being mindful is the opposite of rushing or multitasking. When you’re mindful, you’re taking your time. You’re focusing in a relaxed, easy way.”

Task: Create a brainstorm/mindmap of all the things you like to do that help you be mindful. For example: listening to music, going for a walk or reading a good book.

You may like to colour code the activities you do and draw pictures or logos to represent each one.
