This week the students in 2 Blue thought about something they are grateful for. Some of the students thought about the last two months and what they enjoyed at home while others were grateful to be back at school this week. Enjoy watching the short video of 2 Blue students sharing what they are thankful for this week!
J.K. Rowling, the author of the Harry Potter books, has a new book available online called The Ickabog. Chapters are being added regularly – Chapters 1-5 are available now if you go to:
The website has a link to a competition for children aged from 7 to 12 years old to design illustrations for the hard copy of the book which is due to be published in November 2020.
Students from Australia can send their illustrations to the UK publisher.

When you come back to school you may notice a few changes in the library…
We have expanded and moved the favourite series shelves to include some book boxes by popular authors. Wimpy Kids books have moved to these shelves as have other books by your favourite authors…take the time to have a look next time you visit.
We have been very busy purchasing new books and getting them ready to borrow.
Have a look at the photos – you will see just some of the books we have added to the library in the last few weeks.
Have you participated in our VIRTUAL HOUSE FUN RUN yet?
All entries close this Thursday night.
Fill in the google form sent to you addressed to your student email.
Remember you only need to do ONE 30 minute run. (NOT one each day!)
So get out in the fresh air and walk/jog/run for 30 minutes and enter your distance covered.
CONGRATULATIONS to the 93 students who have already logged their distances, but we need lots more.
So far our Year 1 and Year 5 students seem to be our most active.
DOMINIC (RED House) and followed closely by Bunurong (GOLD House) seem to be doing the best in the Virtual House Fun Run SPIRIT award, judging by the photos and videos I have received. Well done and keep sending in your photos and videos to firstname.lastname@example.org
As a whole school we are also competing against Wantirna South PS and St Bernadettes. So everyone, from Prep to Year 6 let’s get active and participate.
