On Friday 17 June the year six girls participated in our interschool competition by playing netball in the Eagle’s Cup.
This week we played against St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School. After weeks of training and an enthusiastic commitment from all the girls towards all training sessions Mrs Ryan and Miss Corkhill were very proud to see their teams succeed with a win. Miss Corkhill’s teams’ final score was 18-0 while Mrs. Ryan’s team battled it out for a 21 -16 win.
It was great to see all the girls working as a team, supporting each other and most importantly showing good sportsmanship towards our opposition. Well done girls!
On Tuesday 16 February, the Year Five and Six classes attended an excursion to Parliament House in Perth. The purpose of this excursion was to allow students to have the opportunity to gain a better understanding of what ‘democracy’ is all about and to understand their role as active citizens who are able to vote and make decisions about issues affecting their lives.
The students had the opportunity to visit Parliament House where they learned about the Upper and Lower House. They also participated in a workshop on the three levels of government which supported them to identify the roles and responsibilities of the three levels of government in Australia: federal, state and local.
In another workshop, we participated in a ‘hands on’ activity which reinforced the importance of the voting process and the laws associated with this privilege.
We have had a positive and productive start to Year Six and we look forward to a great term where we will consolidate our leadership skills and concepts and understandings in all learning areas.
This week the Year Sixes met their Year Two buddies and began their new leadership responsibilities by helping and guiding them as they settle into school. They were all very attentive and did a great job establishing a rapport with their buddies!
We look forward to the term ahead and all the wonderful opportunities that it will bring! Thank you for your anticipated support throughout the year!

It is hard to believe that we are quickly approaching the end of the term! This means that it is time for the students to begin preparing their EduDance costumes. Fortunately, the costumes for this year are simple. The Year Four students will be required to dress in beach or Hawaiian style clothes. This will mean that students need to wear board shorts or colourful shorts and a rash/sun shirt or a bright t-shirt. (No bathers or bikini tops)There will be no need for accessories such as sunglasses or hats, as these will only get In the way of the performance.
Students will be required to wear normal sport shoes for the concert.
We are letting you know about this now, as you may like to start organising these items.
We thank you in anticipation and we look forward to seeing you at the concert on 4th December at 2pm.

Year Four Teachers
Welcome back to what we anticipate will be a very productive final term of Year Four. The students have begun the teaching and learning program with enthusiasm and a hard working attitude, which is great to see.
In Maths we are learning about graphs and how to conduct effective surveys by creating quality questions and then collecting data. We are discovering how graphs make it easy for us to interpret data visually. The students created survey questions then asked other class members what their favourite takeaway foods were. Next we recorded this data using tallies and then interpreted the results.
