An Author’s Visit – Amanda Graham

Amanda Graham came to visit our school and remind us of the importance of the Premier’s Reading Challenge – well done those of you who have completed the challenge and returned your form already!

Amanda Graham read us one of her books called “Picasso the Green Tree Frog” and she also taught us how to draw a shark using shapes!

Thank you Amanda for coming to visit our school and share your story and drawing talents!

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter break – the children shared so many stories with me of time spent with family and friends, resting and relaxing, and going away to special places and cities.

We did a crafty Easter bunny or egg with our buddies before we went on our break:


Harmony Week ending with our parade and food celebration!

Thank you all for being involved with our Harmony Week celebrations. We hope you enjoyed the parade – Room 9 definitely enjoyed being brave and trying new and amazing foods from different cultures!

I appreciate all the families that contributed food to our shared lunch and to families who dressed up or wore orange to celebrate the day.



Harmony Week – 14th March-16th March (Week 7)

Hi everyone,

Last Friday, you should have received a note about Harmony Week. On Friday 16th March, the students can wear their traditional clothes to school. If they don’t have traditional clothes, they can wear orange clothes. We will have a whole school parade at 9:15am, where we can share our cultural clothes with our community.

Also, it is a shared lunch on the 16th March. Please bring in a plate of food to share from your culture, keeping in mind for student allergies – no nuts as there are students who are allergic. If your child is more particular about their lunch eating, please pack enough food for them, if they’re not feeling too brave to try new foods.

If you need a spare copy of the note about Harmony Week, please ask for one at school.

Happy Harmony Week!

Mrs Macdonald


Public Holiday Monday 12th & Pupil Free Day Tuesday 13th March

See you all back at school on Wednesday 14th March!


What is a good friend?

In the last few weeks, we have been discussing what it means to be a good friend. We talked about what we can do with our friends to make us feel happy and safe.
