On Tuesday 22nd August the Year Five and Six classes had the pleasure of a visit from author Nadia King to celebrate this year’s Book Week. Nadia is the author of Jenna’s Truth, a touching story inspired by true events about a young girl who was bullied in school. Nadia also told us about her life and offered these tips for getting started as a writer.
- Dream your story
- Use writing prompts
- Live your life
- Be nosey
Overall it was a very relevant and interesting presentation by Nadia. The students asked some thoughtful and meaningful questions which will assist students when writing their own narratives.

Here is an overview of our learning for Term 2!
On Friday 10th February, students from years 5 and 6 took part in our ‘wellbeing day’. Students were grouped in their houses and rotated through four different activities for the day. Miss Hynes & Miss Thomas led a healthy eating session where students enjoyed delicious, fresh dips along with celery and carrot sticks. Mrs Ryan held a meditation session which incorporated reflective music and quiet activities and finally, Mr Naden and Jacob Aquino organised different fitness stations and team building activities which involved a lot of running, jumping, muscle building and communication. All activities were aimed at improving our physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing and of course, our teamwork skills and house spirit!
The day was a huge success and we look forward to more Wellbeing Days in the future!
