Yesterday the Year 5 and Year 6 students returned from a 3 day camp at Camp Cooba, the students all had a fantastic time and learnt many new skills and conquered a few fears along the way.  A special thank you to the staff that attended with the students and contributed in a myriad of ways.

Week 4

 

 

On Monday the Year 3-6 students had a visit from the Sydney Thunder cricket team.  As part of the presentation the students listened to a talk by the Australian Dental Association on ways to keep our teeth healthy.  We were reminded about healthy eating and how being active is an important part of living a health lifestyle.  All the students loved finding out how fast they could throw a ball using the radar gun.
