On Monday, our Year 6 students will be traveling over to Rottnest for their weeklong camp. This is a very exciting time in the lives of these young students, as they are away from their families for this extended period of time, but provided with many opportunities to develop leadership skills, resilience and take part in new experiences while developing their knowledge of Western Australia’s history.
It was so wonderful to see the children dressing up as their favourite book characters yesterday, to celebrate Book Week. I was super impressed with how many students (and teachers) got involved with this. With the theme of ‘Dreaming with eyes open’, it is a good reminder for us of the importance of reading and using our imagination.
Welcome back! I hope all families had a wonderfully relaxing and fun holidays, ready for the busyness that Term Four always brings! As I visit each of the classrooms, I have already been able to see the way the students are engaging in their learning and getting ready for the end of the year.
