On Wednesday of last week the season of Lent began with Ash Wednesday. As a school we celebrated by coming together in our undercover area, praying and receiving ashes.
Later that day in our classrooms, we wrote Lenten Promises. We defined what a promise is, first of all. Then we thought and wrote about who we would like to PRAY for, what we would GIVE this Lent and what we would FAST from. These special Lenten Promises are displayed across our classroom and the front office. If you pop into the office this week, make sure to check them out! Some of us wrote on cross templates, and some of us wrote on leaves.

Mrs Cogger has found this great competition to keep you engaged and occupied and to develop your creativity.
It’s the Toyota Dream Car Contest. We have so many quality and creative artists at the school. Why not have a go at designed your own dream car entry for this competition?
Students who are wanting to enter the competition are required to draw or paint a picture of what they imagine their dream car will look like.
There are three different age categories for the competition:
- Under 8’s
- 8 to 11 year olds
- 12 to 15 year olds
The top three place-getter winners in each of the age categories will be chosen and one of these lucky students will be selected by the judges as the ‘Australian Dream Car Contest Champion’.
The child who wins first prize in the competition will win a $2,500 VISA Gift Card for their school, and another $2,500 VISA Gift Card for themselves. There are also eight $275 VISA Gift Cards to be won for the other winners across the age categories.
Here are a few important questions to consider
When do students have to get their artwork in by?:
The competition closes at 11:59pm AEDT on the 28 February 2021, so it’s a great activity to do this week while you are at home.
Do students basically have to be Picasso in order to enter this content?
Nope! It’s about creativity, not perfection. Each entry will be individually judged based on its message, uniqueness and art characteristics.
Do students have to post their artwork in? Do I have to post it for them?
Not this year! This year the Dream Car Competition is accepting entries online, so there is no need to package and post your class entries. Head to the Dream Car page and follow the bulk upload process. Remember to keep your original artwork in a safe place. You’ll need it in order to be eligible to win the amazing prizes.
Here is a link to the competition with all the further and important details.
All students are welcome to bring their drawings to school and Mrs Cogger will make a display. Make sure you scan in your drawing to enter it. Mrs Cogger cannot do it for you.
Since we are starting a new school year in a new classroom with a new teacher, we needed to sort out some new class agreements and routines. – Olivia
In Five Gold we created a set of class agreements that are positively framed and help us to be the best leaders we can be this year. – Nate
Check out our class agreements below! – Joe
In Five Gold we have created a class jigsaw to show our class values!
