Wayne Thiebaud Inspired Delicious Cakes

Wayne Thiebaud Inspired Delicious Cakes

 Year Five and Six students created some awesome ‘pop art’ style cakes this week They were able to choose two methods for designing the cakes. They could use a dice roll to choose the type of delicious cake and decorations or they could free pick them from a chart. I love the variety in all the different works.

Online STUDENT Cyber Safety Sessions- Monday Sept 13

Online STUDENT Cyber Safety Sessions- Monday Sept 13

Teaching children to be cybersafe will help them to engage with the online world safely, responsibly and discerningly and can assist to protect them from online risks.

Sometimes children are faced with online situations that they simply don’t know how to handle. As a school we recognise the importance of Cyber Safety education. Therefore, children are taught the knowledge and skills they need to prevent cyberbullying, protect their personal information and how to deal with inappropriate images or behaviours they see online.

To complement the Cyber Safety education that we currently teach at school, Shannon Mullavey has organised sessions with Inform & Empower, who presented to parents earlier this year. Rather than wait until we can conduct these sessions onsite with the students, they will now be held Online. We require students to attend the Incursion session designated to their level. Teachers have built the Cyber Safety Sessions into the student’s learning next week (see Learning Grids).

Online Cyber Safety Sessions Monday September 13

  • 9.30 to 10.50 am – Years 5 & 6 – 80 min
  • 11.40 am to 1.00 pm – Years 3 & 4 – 80 min
  • 2.00 pm to 2.45 pm – Preps, 1’s & 2’s – 45 min (Yes Preps can attend as well)

COST: FREE (covered by School Budget)

Parents, where possible, are asked to watch the Online Cyber Safety Session with their child/ren. We encourage a family discussion after the session to reinforce the learning that the children have been involved in.

Cute Complimentary Coloured Birds

Cute Complimentary Coloured Birds

Wonderful Grade One artists created cute as a button birds this week.  They were encouraged to use one colour for the bird and the complimentary colour as the background. They did a super job, sometimes the rainbow calls and it’s hard to confine yourself to two colours and that’s the benefit of being an artist, there are no rules. I love them all.

SRC – New School Uniform

SRC – New School Uniform

This term our SRC (Student Representative Council) have been regularly meeting to work through what our new school uniform might look like in 2022 and beyond.

Over the past couple of weeks we shared some of our wonderful ideas including labelling our designs.

Some of ideas included introducing a tie, having a hoodie and creating a uniform that can be worn by both girls and boys and having just one uniform that is a bit more ‘sporty’ and can be worn on both PE and non PE days.

We would love you to add your thoughts about the below designs into the comment section of this post.

Here are some of the designs that our SRCs came up with …..

PRAYER SERVICE CELEBRATING OUR DADS & FATHER FIGURES

PRAYER SERVICE CELEBRATING OUR DADS & FATHER FIGURES

Father’s Day is a day for people to show their appreciation for fathers, grandfathers and father figures. Father figures may include stepfathers, fathers-in-law, guardians (e.g. foster parents), and family friends. This special day reminds us how much we love our fathers, grandfathers and those who are like fathers to us. We take the opportunity to say THANK YOU for all they do for us.

Below is the Prayer Service I have put together for Father’s Day. Some teachers have used this Prayer Service with their classes. Families are also encouraged to pray together as a family using the Prayer Service to recognise and pray for the fathers, grandfathers and father figures in their lives.
