Book Week Celebrations and Competitions 

Term 3 is nearly upon us and in August we will be celebrating Book Week at the Junior School. The theme this year is ‘Old Worlds, New Worlds, Other Worlds.’

Pop-up Bookshop to Kick Off in August

Students will visit the bookshop with their class on Monday from 9am. Payment method will be determined closer to the date.  

Allowing your son to make his own choices on what to purchase is a great way to encourage him to read!

Book prices will begin at $15.00.

History Hysteria Showcase

In term 2 Week 9, Year 5 students hosted their annual History Showcase. This was the students’ culminating event for their term’s History research, from which they chose a historical figure and historical event from the 1800s-1900s. This inquiry unit explored the significance of people, groups, places, and events that have led to the development of Australia. The day proved to be a huge success, with parents coming onto the grounds to witness the hysteria that took place. 

A huge thank you to all of the teachers for their tireless work, Mr Brennan for being our guest judge, the parents who attended, and finally, well done to all of Year 5 for their incredible efforts. It was undoubtedly one to remember!
