What an important day it was with the whole school cleaning up for Clean Up Australia Day! It was so exciting because the Environment Team ( that my friend and I are on) go around with one class each, helping the clean up with small rubbish bags. Happily, NONE of the bags were full so that means we're a very environmentally aware school! Please tell us what you did for clean up Australia day!

Today at school, John came to talk to us about chemical science. We had to pretend we were in a glass and imagine we were atoms and we all had to join up to each other using our hands and we were a solid!!. Then John separated us into pairs and we could move more freely! We became a liquid!! Then he split us again and we were on our own, free to go anywhere... which made us gas!! So that's how we learnt the difference between solids, liquid and gas.

At school our amazing ICT teacher gave us an interesting surprise. We were given a mystery toolbox that had unusual things in it.The toolbox was a fun way to learn about cyber safety.The students gathered the information they had learnt and put it into a creative and joyful video. Enjoy the movie and cheers from Dylan and Ciaran!

When we came to School this morning we were set a task by our teacher. It was to answer the question, 'Why Do We Go To School' and the whole class contributed. We brainstormed the answers and wrote them down on our Chrome Books. We came up with a number of great answers that we put into a google doc and our teacher thought they were brilliant... see below for some quotes about our thinking!

Do you wonder why we all come to School?
Well let me tell you why it is so important...
We come to School to learn about Skills for the future that will help us evolve in life to become more independent and responsible…
We also come to School to take action and learn to learn.
School also encourages us to take action and work at our goals(Mine is Maths!).
Here are some reasons why Senior MY thinks we should go to school!My first reason is for us to gain an education to help us prepare for the our future jobs and life. I think it is good to make friends and relationships with new people, that means we will never be lonely again.It is good to become independent, responsible and to be inspired to take action in the world. I think it is good to express ourselves-develop deeper thinking. Also to work for our goal and hopefully get there. Last but not least to learn to learn! I hope now that you have read this you will love school even better than before. Elisa
We come to school to help us take action into the world and develop our own thinking skills.The most important thing is to learn how to learn really think dive deeply and express yourself.We also come learn about not just our community but the world and environment around us.“So don't just sit there go outside go for a walk and learn” You may not notice but learning is all around you.

School inspires us to get good jobs. School helps us to be independent and responsible for when we get older and leave our parents and live on our own. School helps us to think more deeply and to reach our goals. School educates me for future jobs and skills for the future and the last thing of all is we learn to learn. Brandon C

Prayer for Today : As we set out, all well rested and open to new beginnings, we paused to take a look at the wisdom of nature!
The amazing story of the flight of geese led us to reflect on those qualities that would create "lift" in our classroom.
