New School Captains for 2021

New School Captains for 2021

Today the 2021 school captains were announced and were presented their badges by our current school captains.

This term the year five students have been preparing themselves for their upcoming leadership roles and part this preparation involved having a leadership day where they learnt about some of the different types of leaders we find in our world, the leadership qualities we admire as well as the different leadership roles available when the students are in year six. Each student was required to write a letter to Mr. Downie informing him of the leadership qualities they display as well as the leadership roles they would like to undertake in 2021. Some students applied for the role of school captain and it was pleasing to see how well the students did in their applications. Well done to our new school captains who have big shoes to fill when Jess, Josh, Sienna and Aiden move onto year seven.

Here is the video of today’s announcement.

Below is the Google Meet Timetable for classes (including Specialist Google Meets). As you will notice the times for class Google Meets should be the same each day.

There is also a specialist Google Meet time for each class during the week where you will to some learning with the Specialist teachers at the allocated time. It is important to remember that no matter what specialist lesson you have it will always be the same code, You will also stay on your Google Meet throughout the session and your specialist teachers will swap over half way through the session. Most class teachers will explain how to access their specialist Google Meet but here is a quick summary …..

DFL in Year 5

DFL in Year 5

Since we have all come back from online schooling the Year 5’s have been participating in DFL (which stands for Dice Football League). At the start we were all randomly given our own football team but it was not the football team that we barrack for. To play the game were each given two different coloured die and we had to choose one dice to be the goals and one to be the behinds. At the moment the Demons (me) are on top after we defeated the Swans in a classic. We are looking forward to continuing the DFL next term.

Here is the current ladder positions in our class.

In addition to whole class Google Meets some students may have smaller group sessions as well and may be asked to use the Google Meet app to enter their session. If you are asked to enter a special code or meeting name you may need to check in your emails for what the code is. This video may assist you with how to use the Google Meet app to do this ……
