Term 2 has been a very busy and productive term in the Primary school.
All students participated in our Cross Country with some students representing the college at regional events. The P-2 students had lots of fun recently at their Tabloid Sports participating in relays and novelty events.
A committed group of students from Years 4-6 were involved in the college’s production of Seussical in May. Currently a group of Year 3-6 students are rehearsing for Wakakirri which is a dance competition where stories are told through dance. They will be performing at GPAC early next term. The Year 6 Robotics team has been busy building robots and are now testing them using a variety of tests to identify the team robot for the FLL Competition later in the year. The Choirs visited Alan David Lodge and each Choir has performed at an assembly.
This term has seen the Year 3-4s have fun at Camp Kangaroobie, and the Year 5-6s go back in time when they attended the costumed school during their camp at Sovereign Hill.
The Year 5-6 group learnt about debating through a workshop activity and then planned and presented debates at class, house and regional level. The students learnt a lot through this activity and gained a lot of confidence speaking to an audience. There have been a range of different excursions this term: Preps went to the Geelong Library for a visit; Year1-2s visited the Melbourne Museum; and Year 3-4s went to the Ceres Sustainability Hub. We have also had visits from Bravehearts (P-2), the Life Ed Van (P-6), the Hope Tour (Years 5-8) and ALWS Awareness Day (Year 5-6).
This term saw a change in the way we report to parents. This new report format was explained to parents across three different sessions and also via a Care Monkey notice before being accessed through PAM. This along with the continuation of our Seesaw posts to parents helps communicate student learning.
Looking forward to Term 3 and lots more exciting activities and developments.
