Welcome to Term 1
Students begin Term 1 considering their roles as leaders, both formal and informal, within our school community. They will have the opportunity to apply for a variety of leadership roles, including formal roles, such as Student Government, School Captains, House Captains and broader roles such as Junior Canteen Assistants and Henry's Helpers. This will be followed by an investiture assembly later in the term.
Our integrated inquiry and literacy centres around STEM and enterprise education to be enjoyed with the school community in our Enterprise Showcase.
We also have two STEM experiences planned with a sport science excursion to BioLAB and a visit from the Earth Ed, Sustainable Energy Trailer.
Literacy at Home:
Encourage and support your child to read 5 nights a week minimum.
Ask them questions about their book to support their reading goal - who, what, when, where, why, and how?
We will be learning about and working with:
Practise number facts eg 7x8, 8x7, 56÷8, 56÷7… even 7x0.8, etc.

Parent / Teacher Partnership
We encourage parents to contact us at any stage to share knowledge about your child that may affect their learning, or if you have any questions or concerns – the earlier, the better!
Class Dojo is a major form of contact. We use this app as an interactive communication portal between us and you. We send home reminders, requests, student learning goals, and anecdotal class stories now and again. It is there for parents to send us important messages and absence notes as needed.
Please directly contact the office for any immediate changes to your child’s day, eg change to the end of school pick up. Our primary concern is teaching and we may not pick up a Dojo message until after 3:30pm. The office is a safer bet for everyone.
Grade 6 Graduation Tees will begin their ordering process very shortly. Look out for the notes coming home!
