Week 7 Term 4 - Musical Week!

Image
 Good morning all, As we reach the end, I think it may be easier to focus on one week at a time and the events of that week. It has been a long weekend of report writing and I'm almost there! I did take some time out to catch up with my mum for her birthday in Bunbury and be entertained by these two monkeys! I hope you had time to relax and enjoy the weekend and celebrate with me the joys of not having to pack a lunchbox this morning with the little cherubs having an extra day off to rest! MUSICAL!!! A lot of information has been sent out about the Musical Performance and Matinee, so I am going to scale it back and keep it brief: MATINEE: Tuesday 24th November @ 2pm in the hall. Thank you to those who have been able to offer their services for makeup starting at 10am and to the stage dressers who will work their magic Tuesday morning. xxx FRIDAY NIGHT PERFORMANCE: Friday 27th November @ 7pm in the hall. A text will be sent out later in the week to state the timings for the makeup

Welcome to Week 6

Good morning all, I'm back on deck and feeling good!  I have just realised that we are now super close to the finish line and it's that time of year where no matter how hard I try to slow everything down it is just not going to happen! With reports on the go, musical next week, graduation around the corner and our final excursion less than a month away, I feel that I am going to be constantly running...so apologies if I do miss something along the way. Please let me know if I do, and I'll get on top of it straight away! On Friday the students had a lovely day at the Cricket Blaster Carnival with Mrs Martin. The students represented the school well with plenty of talented cricketers amongst us I hear. They were so lucky the weather held out...what a nice way to spend a day out of the classroom. As we were away for the assembly last week, we have missed celebrating a Merit Award and Star Citizen. These will be caught up this Friday, what a big day it will be for 6R! On a more

 Good morning everyone, I hope you had a wonderful weekend where ever you were: lazing around in Hamelin Bay, catching some rays at a surf comp in Perth or just happy chilling at home! The weather was perfect for getting out and into the water! Unfortunately I am writing this from home, as my hay fever has turned nasty and I am very croaky, sore and snuffly. I am off to the doctors soon and hopefully I can get something to help clear my head. This is definitely not the time to get sick, as there is far too much to get sorted for the end of the year. Fingers crossed I'll be back tomorrow. I want to take this opportunity to celebrate the very talented young artist, Zahra Love, who won the Peace Prize Competition for 2020 on Friday afternoon.  Kaye McCormack from the Lion's Club presented Zahra with a certificate and $100 gift voucher. Kaye was most impressed with the quality and detail the students put into this task, interpreting the theme 'Peace Through Service' in such

 Good morning all, JUST A SHORT ONE THIS WEEK... Welcome back to another week! As the children are coming off their sugar highs from Halloween, I noticed some tired little munchkins yesterday. I know my boys were the same in the Ricciardone household and some early nights are required this week. As the end of the year ramps up a little and hormones and growth spurts are kicking in, I am asking that where possible you make sure your child is getting as much sleep as possible to allow their bodies and brains to rejuvenate. At assembly last week we had two 6R champions to celebrate, first Ed received our Merit for his hardwork, persistence and 'never give up' attitude and then Sophie won Mama CC (MJR Award) for using her initiative and helping others in need. Congratulations to both our super stars! Click here to see Ed Receive his award... REMINDERS - WEEK 4 GRADUATION POWERPOINT-   Thank you to those who have already done this...however for those who haven't can you please r

Week 3 Term 4

 Good morning all, This term just needs to slow down...before I know it I am going to be saying farewell to you all and my hormones can not deal with those emotions just yet!! What an incredible bout of weather we are having, summer is coming and doesn't it feel GOOD! It was lovely to hear the students recounts of their weekend and the fun they've had with family and friends. At Friday's assembly we celebrated Remy for the growth and maturity that we have seen over the past couple of weeks. He is currently sharing such great knowledge and creative ideas in our novel study of 'Once'. Click here to see Remy receive his Merit award... I am really excited to share our new display that highlights our novel study on the novel 'Once'. In both activities on the board, we attempted to describe the physical and personality traits of the protagonist character, Felix. First we used the 'Crystal Ball' tool to draw a visualisation of what we thought he would look

 Good morning all, What an incredibly beautiful weekend. We couldn't have asked for better weather to start our summer sport commitments and not to mention, a bit of socialisation at the same time.  Assemblies are back...and on Friday we celebrated the lovely Saffi for her incredible start to our final term. She is showing great focus, producing some excellent pieces of work last week. I have to say that, all of the students began the term well, they must have had a great rest over the holidays! Click here to see Saffi receive her award... IMPORTANT MUSICAL INFORMATION Firstly students are now allowed to wear their Sports uniform Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday . The additional day is because of the Musical rehearsals taking place on a Wednesday and we can only do our best dance moves in comfier clothes!! MEETING NOTES: Last Wednesday, we had a Musical meeting, thank you to the few who were able to attend. Below is the minutes of what was discussed on the day. Apologies if your name

Welcome Back to Term 4!

Good afternoon everyone, Welcome back to our final term together! I hope you and your children have managed to have a fun and restful break. I switched off in week one and am truly grateful for it now, as I feel refreshed and ready for a busy final term. As I think about how quickly this year has gone and how close we are to the end I can't help but reflect on how much the students have grown and matured. I am looking forward to an important term together, working hard to prepare them as best as I can for the transition into high school next year. WEEK 1 - REMINDERS TOMATO PLANTS Mr Lee is asking if any clever little munchkins managed to continue growing their tomato seeds from term 3 and have baby tomato plants growing to bring them back to school. He would like to use these to fundraise money, along with the worm whizz later on this term. ASSEMBLIES This term, assemblies will recommence on Friday afternoons. As we are still in Phase 4 Restrictions, parents are still not allowed t
