Hello Parents- we have had an interesting short- long week as we managed to fit a lot into it. We were fortunate to have grade 5A peers take time out from their busy exhibition work to come and teach us what they knew about graffiti art. That involved a lot of listening, following instructions, creativity and stepping outside the comfort zone. The final products are great and we are very proud of them. See below
Good to see you all at your children’s conferences today and great to hear their voices proudly explaining their learning to you.
Monday is Earth day and we are all being encouraged to wear green to show support for this very important day. We have a calendar of suggestions related to the SDG’s that are teaspoons of change-easily carried out- to make a difference. Monday will also be ‘meatless’ in the school canteen and we are encouraging students to bring ‘nude food’ – no plastic wrappers- in their snack boxes for the next couple of weeks. Who knows it may just become a habit. It’s time to be creative and think about how we use to manage without zip lock plastic bags and cling wrap- I am old enough to remember when they were introduced and we all thought they were marvelous inventions- not understanding the consequences for our Earth at that stage. Thank you for your support with this.
As you all know the week after next is a very short week- two days at school- and we come back into BOOK Week. On that Thursday morning ( 2nd May) there will be a special assembly. Everybody comes dressed wearing either a costume/ hat /sign from a book and we have a grand parade- it is a lot of fun and raises the profile of the importance reading. Thank you for your support with this too!
