PJ and Movie Day!




Our fantastic Student Council organised a PJ and Movie day for our whole school! We got to dress in PJs (even the teachers) and watched a movie together within our senior syndicate. Thanks to our FAB student council!


Year 6 Cycle Safety!

This term the year 6's in Room 7 participated in Cycle Safety. This is a FUN programme where we get to learn different skills around cycling and what we need to know when cycling on the road. We had sessions in class where we learnt the road rules, sessions around our school grounds where we got to practise new skills and we went out on the road  to complete our overall learning. Thanks so much to the great cycle safety team that taught us!







Well done Skyla!



This term, Skyla competed for the school in the 2016 Primary Schools Trampoline Championship! Well done!
