Our New Veggie Gardens

Our New Veggie Gardens

Recently, our Environment leaders have been working with Miss Hiscox on our school’s veggie gardens. We drew maps of where we would like plant different fruits, veggies and flowers and then discussed what was the most suitable options. On Wednesday 18th of September we got together with some students from the Prep and grade three level to weed, prepare the soil and plant our new garden.

Here are a few pictures of us at work …..

Torch bearers and SRC

Torch bearers and SRC

This afternoon as part of our final assembly for the term we presented the SRC (Student Representative Council) members of each class and the TORCH bearers of term 1 2019. All candidates for the SRC were required to write a letter saying why they think they would make a good SRC member to represent their class. The TORCH bearer of the term is a special award given to students who consistently display all the TORCH values (not just during this term but throughout their school lives.Β  Congratulations to all our SRC members for 2019 and to our TORCH bearers for term 1.

Here is our SRC members for each class for 2019 …..

These are our TORCH bearers for 2019.

(: Year 6 Safety Swimming Day :)

(: Year 6 Safety Swimming Day :)

Today the year 6’s participated in a ‘Safety around Water’ program at Knox Leisureworks to boost their knowledge and confidence about water safety. During this program we accomplished a series of activities including throw and pull in rescue, throw rescue, 25 metre freestyle and 25 meter any stroke. We also had to tread water for 2.30 minutes and then float for another 5 minutes. The best part of the day was at the end of the session when everyone went on the water slide. Today everyone show confidence, respect and we all tried to do the best we could.

Great job grade 6’s!

Lego Engineering in the 5/6 Level

Lego Engineering in the 5/6 Level

In 5/6 level we have continued the Lego Engineering program this term as part of building STEM into our learning at Holy Trinity. Last week one of the projects we built was a rescue jeep. We learnt about how a winch is used to pull different vehicles out when they get stuck in mud, water or sand. As well of having fun we learnt how when the winch works by itself when we added a battery. When most of the groups completed their model they worked on trying to improve it by pulling a heavier load or making the winch work faster. Here are a few of the students in 5/6 D in action……
