Years 5 and 6 Program Leader | Mr Brendan Ganley

Well done to all our runners at the Cross Country on Monday

It is only Week 2, however, with shortened weeks and a short term, extra work outside the classroom is very important.

This is a significant week, as always, with services across the country to remember our Anzacs. The connection and bonds with our men and women who served and who are continuing to fight across the world are maintained here at school and in our local communities through our remembrance services. Thank you to the parents and students from Years 5 amd 6 for their support of the Lenten Appeal. Unfortunately, the weather was against our completing the Lenten Walk and Fair for this this year, but the donations that came in were fantastic.

By now all students will have had an opportunity to take in the results and comments in their report card for Term 1. By now each student should have established personal strategies and goals for Term 2 with your teacher. Parent /Teacher interviews are taking place for the next two weeks and there is a reminder that students will conclude school at 12.45pm next Wednesday.

It is only Week 2, however, with shortened weeks and a short term, extra work outside the classroom is very important. Assessment calendars were handed out in the last week of Term 1 as a guide to plan and avoid the panic at the last minute. Our Year 5 students have been working extremely hard at their Literacy and Numeracy skills to start off Term 2. Creating good study habits is very important.

This term, Year 5 classes will be celebrating mass in the Chapel. This is a great occasion for students to celebrate with their families. This Tuesday, mass will be celebrated by 5 White. All parents and extended family are most welcome. Mass will begin at 7.45am.
