House Cross Country 2022

House Cross Country 2022

On Friday 18th of March all students from Prep to Year 6 participated in our annual House Cross Country event at Egan Lee Reserve.

This year we had a number of firsts including the students in Prep to Year 2 having an opportunity to participate in the event for the first time and the event taking place in term one (it usually happens in term two).

Mr. D had measured out a one kilometre circuit for everyone to follow which began on the training soccer fields and followed a track around the back of the main soccer field before returning back to the starting line again. Each class has been preparing for our cross country during their PE sessions this term.

Our Prep to Year 2 students completed one lap of this circuit (1km) whilst the 3/4 students completed two laps and the 5/6 students completed 3 laps.

Our District Cross Country team is chosen from the students who compete in our cross country and usually include students from Years 4, 5 and 6.

Thank you Mr D for organizing amazing fun day and thank you to our wonderful parent helpers and staff for assisting with the running event. Everyone overall did amazing and it was great to see everyone doing their best to keep active.

Here are the results of the students who came first in their Years 3 to 6.

Year 3’s: Jackson & Avery

Year 4’s: Luke & June

Year 5’s: Eden & Darcy

Year 6’s: Ella D & Nathan

Here are some photos from the day ……

Prep Learning

Prep Learning

This term has been a very exciting one for our Prep students as they settle into school. They have learnt lots of new topics including understanding their letters and sounds in words, and counting and understanding all about numbers to 10.

The Preps have also enjoyed learning about data and graphs in Maths, learning the sign of the cross and school prayer in RE and learning some Auslan with Miss Lucy.

Even though the Preps have learnt so much new in class sometimes the biggest learning for them is on the playground with their friends with support of their wonderful year six buddies.

Overall, the Preps have settled into school really nicely and have enjoyed their first term at HT.

Here is our wonderful Preps in action ……
