ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL AWARDS
The Slime Splatacular was eventually held on the 8th of November and the kids and staff had an absolute ball. The children did laps of an obstacle course designed by the JSC and built by the Grade Six Camps group whilst dodging slime and coloured powder being thrown at them by Staff and JSCs. There was not a clean person left in the school by the end of the day and the school raised nearly $7500 from the day. Congratulations to Casey Loffler-Douglas who raised the most money in the school, collecting a whopping $950 by himself. For those students who raised money, your prizes should be here within the next week. Well done everyone.
The swimming program started this week with the Grade Prep – 2’s attending their lessons at the Ford Swim Centre.
From all accounts, the program has started successfully, with the students participating in water experience sessions aimed at stroke development and water safety.
The Grade 5/6 ‘s attended the Waratah Beach Camp this week. From all accounts, the students were had a fantastic time working through a range of activities including the: aeroball, giant swing, ropes course and initiative games. These experiences give students the opportunity to build on their personal development skills within a non-school setting, which can only be of benefit.
