Our School News
There is a new camp newsletter under the newsletter tab
The weather is meant to change to rain on Thursday and Friday this week. We do not want students to miss out on camp activities. Therefore we will move camp forward to Tuesday and Wednesday. Students will stay over on Tuesday.
Computational Thinking: We have been focussing on computational thinking this week. This is an important element of the Technology Curriculum. Over the next couple of weeks students are rotating around teachers. Teachers have planned different computational thinking tasks and activities to introduce students to the concepts. You might like to ask your child about their learning.
Basketball: Commences on the 13th March for older students. Mr Sefton will be sending out more information shortly. Unfortunately Mr Sefton is nursing a broken bone in his foot at the moment, so these will go out as soon as he is back. We will however only be able to enter teams if we have a manager and a coach. So if we do not have enough parent support some students may miss out. If you choose to coach or manage your child will definitely be on your team.
