Students vs Teacher/Parent Footy Match

For those parents who are competing in the football match tomorrow. We are aiming to start the match at 1:00pm. So if we could meet in the grade 5 rooms (portables next to the oval) at 12:40 to discuss game plans and strategies. The oval is still a tad muddy, so it would be a good idea to wear football boots if you have some, otherwise runners are fine. The match will consist of two 25 minute halves against two teams of students.

Look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow in their sports colours!

Hoop Time Future Stars

The note and payment is now available on QKR for those students attending the Future Stars Hoop Time.
The teams are attached for those students involved, please see QKR for the venue information and date.
We will require parents to assist in transporting the kids on the day, so please fill out the forms to make us aware of how you child will be transported.

Blog Question

Your teacher has put you in charge of organising the end of term class party. You need to consider where this will take place, what food/drink will be available and what games/activities you might play. In your homework book, create a t-chart with the headings ‘Goods’ and ‘Services’. List the goods you would need to purchase and the services you need to hire for your party. E.g. Pizza would go under the ‘Goods’ heading and the delivery of the pizza would go under the ‘Services’ heading. Now create an invitation to invite your classmates to the party. Ensure it is presented attractively.
