Celebration Event

The students were thrilled to receive invitations from Year 2 to attend their special celebration event to conclude their unit on Celebrations.
Kindy enjoyed musical statues, sack races, red light/green light, pass the parcel and some delicious party food to finish off.
Thank you to Year 1 and Year 2 for inviting us.

KC Mystery Reader

Last Friday Mrs Fisher was our Mystery reader. She read us the A Christmas Carol. It was fun to read a classic Christmas story. 

Strings Show and Tell With Year 1 and Kindy

KC and KB had some wonderful 'teachers' (year 1)  showing them how to play either a violin or a cello. 
They listened to a short performance and then were buddied up to have a go on the instruments.
It was an excellent way to prepare them for learning a string instrument next year.

KB Mystery Reader Week 8

Hello Everyone,
This week our Mystery Reader was Mr Gordon. He read a funny book called The Cranky Bear by Nick Bland.
KB really enjoyed joining in with a BIG roar with Mr Gordon. We also discussed what made some people cranky and maybe there is a reason behind it !?!
Thanks Mr Gordon.

Term 4 Week 8 Reminders

Blazers and Hats
Just a reminder that blazers are not compulsory for school in summer unless it's a cool day or Presentation Day.
Hats need to be worn before school and on the way home from school.

Permission Notes
Your child received a note about going for a walk to deliver Christmas cards to our neighbours. Please return the permission note as soon as possible. If any parents are available to walk with us, please return the slip as well. We only need about 3 helpers for each class.

Mini-Fete on Thursday 26 November. Let's hope we have cooler weather for it.
Keep sending in any old toys for the toy stall.
The snow cones were a huge success today. Almost every child purchased one and enjoyed sipping it in the cool classroom at lunch time.

News Topic
Tell us what you love about about Christmas.

No Sound Of the Week or next week.

Last week for swimming lessons.

Ready for Swimming

We think the children look very cute in their poncho/hooded towels.
Here are a couple of photos of them before we left for swimming lessons.
