T4W6 Honour Certificate Winners

Congratulations to this double duo of boys this week, Lucas K and Braden! Their combined positive attitudes toward learning and abilities to achieve work of a high standard are forces to be reckoned with!

Hands-On Coding!

After successful experiences drawing and solving our own codes for mazes, it was time for the real thing this week! Students were hands-on in creating a maze and algorithm (code) for a large maze. They had to then switch with another group and use a Bee-Bot to manoeuvre through the maze! Have a look at the videos below for the two highly successful groups who managed to enter the correct code and had a very happy BeeBot 🙂 Well done to all students for their amazing sense of direction, growth mindsets, perseverance, collaboration skills and ability to actively take on feedback!

    

Students not returning

If you are not returning to Aubin Grove next year, can I please ask that you let me, or the Front Office, know as soon as possible. Our school expects a drop in student enrolments for next year, owing to the establishment of Honeywood PS, so in order to plan for the number of teachers and classrooms required, it is essential that we have the most accurate information possible. 

Thank you in anticipation.

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween, from a very spooky Room 40!

R U OK Day (13/10/17)

AGPS is raising awareness for R U OK Day, this Friday 13/10/17. 

Positive mental health is becoming a prevalent area of concern, particularly amongst mondern youth. Establishing strategies to promote positive mental health and how to identify unhealthy thoughts or feelings is extremely important.

To recognise the importance of R U OK Day, this Friday we will:

  1. Wear yellow! Something small or yellow head to toe would be great! No gold donations needed.
  2. Creating artworks with talented artist Elle Campbell.
  3. A number of activities to learn all about what mental health is, what our current state of mental health is and how we can support our mental health!

Looking forward to seeing all students in a bright yellow this Friday!
