Term 2 Projects

 Last term 5/6J students had to complete a project on an Adventure Sport. They got to choose the sport and the activities they wanted to complete.

Everyone did a fantastic job! Check out these images of some of the students’ chosen activities.

Olympathon

Last Wednesday was our Education Week Open Day. We began the day with open classrooms and invited parents and visitors into our classroom to watch our Morning Routine.

Next we had our special Open Day assembly, followed by a hot dog picnic lunch. Year 6 sold drinks to raise money for their farewell.

After lunch was our Olympathon. We participated in many Olympic sports including high jump, rhythmic gymnastics, hockey and shot put. We also collected sponsors to fundraise for this event.

Finally we were all set to have some sessions with Cricket Australia and the Greater Western Sydney Giants AFL team. Alas, we were hit with a freak hail storm so had to abandon that plan!  Asides from the weather, a great day had by all.

What did your school do for education week?

Sports Expo at Panthers CUA Stadium

What a treat for Stage 3!  A $2 coin got us on the bus to Panthers CUA Stadium to participate in a sports expo. We got to try out a range of sports and our instructors were various sporting experts.

We were split into 2 groups, and visited Golf, Hockey, AFL, Netball, European Handball, Karate, Gymnastics and Athletics.

At the end of the day we all received a show bag with some free goodies and lots of information on the sports we tried.

Here are some shots of the group with Miss B:

And here is a time lapse video of Andrew – created with 30 or so photos!

District Cross Country – Written by Solomon, Christan and Cameron M

On Friday the 30th of April our school participated in the District Cross Country.  The day started and everyone was nervous and excited  at the same time. It was time for the first race, before we knew it the gun fired and they were off.  We were all anxious to see who would cross the finish line first.

We all did great considering there were over 120 runners in each race. Everyone in our school finished the race, which was an accomplishment in itself. Most of our runners ran in the top 100, that is something we should be extremely proud of.

Congratulations to all the participants in the District Cross Country and congratulations to all the runners. Good luck to Solomon at the Regional Cross Country.
