The voting process took place on Monday the 6th February, Our Year 5 and 6 students had two minutes to pitch why they should be voted as a Student Councillor. Then all year 5 and 6 students were to vote for their preferred candidate. Successful candidates were announced at the Assembly on Friday the 10th of February.

Being read to, and reading to others, has a dramatic positive impact upon a child's learning. The purpose of this buddy reading session was not only for the upper primary students to read to the lower primary students and to share their love of reading, but also for the lower primary students to read to the upper primary students. Even those emergent readers were able to tell a story based on the pictures and develop their concepts of print. Interestingly, a Year 6 student received a lesson on trucks from a Year 1, a Year 2 and Year 6 student engaged in a rather academic conversation about the book on oceans, and when it was time to go a couple of the 1/2’s were ready to leave with their new found friends!

On Monday we had a shooting star crash into our classroom. We had star dust everywhere! For Talk 4 Write this week we are looking at the song Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. We have made a story board by drawing pictures and are sequencing the events of the song.
Room 20 Classroom Upgrade Process
The works are still in progress, but we are very happy with what we are seeing so far...
Our year 4's from Room 1 spent an afternoon planting some gorgeous geraniums with Ms Marie to spruce up the front of the school.
Now we water, wait and watch them grow.
