Book Week Parade

Each year across Australia, The CBCA brings children and books together celebrating CBCA Children’s Book Week. During this time schools, libraries, booksellers, authors, illustrators and children celebrate Australian children’s literature.

2017 Theme: Escape to Everywhere
Imagination drives creativity and innovation. It allows us to envision and escape to worlds beyond our own, to times other than the here and now. It turns boxes into racing cars, dining chairs and blankets into pirate forts, and dress-ups into sweeping ball gowns. Imagination is behind every fairy tale and picture book we cherish from our childhoods.

In Room 11 we have read so many exciting novels this year that we just couldn’t decide on one. We are Escaping to Everywhere through our cooperative readers, class novels and favourite stories of all time.

Aubin Grove’s celebration of Book Week Parade will be held tomorrow morning, Friday 22nd September, at the Little Girls Courtyard commencing at approx. 9am.

Hope to see you there.

Open Night

Open night is upon us. The classrooms will be open for viewing from 5:30pm- 7:00pm tonight (Wednesday). This is a great opportunity for everyone to wander around the school to have a look at all the wonderful learning going on in our school.

The Year 6 students have been working hard on completing an iBook which we would like to put on display tonight. For this we have asked if the students can bring their laptops to school with them this evening and put their narrative on display. Then when they head home they take their laptop with them.

The choir and SIM students will also be performing in the Under Cover Area throughout the evening from 5:30pm. All choir and SIM students have been asked to arrive at the music room at 5:15pm.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Atwell College Applications for Year 7

Atwell College visited us today to talk to the year 6’s about Year 7 at Atwell College in 2018. They have asked that all application enrolments forms for students who will be attending next year be returned to the College by Friday 24th September. If your child did not bring one home the other day and they require one, please just let me know, as we have a couple of spares.

It was mentioned at the meeting that when you return the completed forms, you are asked to do this in person and take all original documentation they ask for with you as they will photocopy them onsite. Otherwise you are required to have all documentation certified before taking in the application.

Thank you for supporting the Year 6 Big Week Out & Graduation!

Swimming extra

Just to add to the earlier note, as we are swimming during lunch it is advised that we do not order lunch from the canteen for the fortnight.  The students will be asked to eat their lunch at recess and then snack on their recess on our return from the pool. Therefor lunch items will not be available from the canteen at recess.

Normal order for us will resume in Week 5.

Thanks for your understanding.

Swimming Lessons Week 3 & 4

Swimming lessons start on Monday. Room 11’s lesson time is 11:40am. That means that the students can come to school in normal uniform, then straight after recess can go and get change into their bathers and put their uniform back over the top before we head on the bus.

The only change for us is that the students will be changing back into their uniform at the pool. This means they are required to take their a small bag with their underwear, towel and brush with them.

Graduation and Class Photos

Tomorrow is our school photo day. The Graduation photo will be at 8:20am in the morning so all Year 6 students are asked to arrive by 8:15am and head down to the undercover area in their full school uniform (no leaders shirts please).

Faction Captains are asked to bring their faction shirt to change into for those photos.

Our Class photo is then later in the day and students are asked to be in full school uniform (also no leaders shirts please).

Term 3

Hi Everyone,

I hope you have all had an enjoyable break. School is back tomorrow and we have class/school photos this week. Room 11’s class photo and the Year 6 photo are both on this Wednesday 19th July.

Also, the swimming notes and payment are due back this week. Swimming will commence in week 3 and run through until the end of Week 4 of this term.

Looking forward to seeing all the kids back tomorrow 🙂

Winter Solstice

We are celebrating the Winter Solstice this Wednesday 21st June with a Pyjama Day. The students are encouraged to come to school in their winter pjs but are asked to wear school shoes. During the day we will be observing an hour without power.
