Dear families,

We hope you have had a lovely weekend.
Thank you to those families who made it to the beach yesterday for the clean-up.

Our active learning was in full swing last week.
We had a Mexican friend of the school, Pedro, come to make his national dishes with Year 2.
Year 3-4 were preparing their open afternoon of sponsored events on the theme of Water for All. See below for your invitation.
Year 3 created some stunning model volcanoes, while Year 5 designed and tested their own skydiving parachutes.
On Thursday, Year 10 had a great trip to the IAB theatre to see Shakespeare’s lovely comedy Twelfth Night.

Looking forward now to the next two weeks:

 

Week 6

 

Water for All: sponsored walk, gallery and presentations by Years 3-4

Please come along to Year 3-4’s sponsored event and presentation on those parts of the world that do not have access to running water.

Come and support them!
