What a fortnight we have had! Cyber Safe Incursions, Preps in Pyjamas, Virtual Assembly, a visit from ex-footballer Fraser Gherig and Simultaneous Storytime - just to name a few.
Such a lovely evening last night with our Prep's in Pyjamas family night. It was wonderful to see so many children, parents and teachers in their pyjamas. Many thanks to Sue , Louise and Nadine for their presence and support on the night. This evening is always special and an opportunity for us to gather in prayer. As one of our parents stated, "It was cuteness overload, and such a special night for the preps and their parents".
Our Year 6 students travelled to Albert Park Lake for sailing lessons this week. Learning some new water skills, our students learnt how working together is so important as they sailed their way around the lake learning how to steer and use the sails. Here are some quotes from our Year 6 students:
“When you are about to tack you need to ask your partner “Are you ready?” and look around you to be safe” - Kanisha
“It was really interesting to go sailing! It’s not something that we would usually do and it was really rewarding!” – Mitch
