A busy start to the Term for everyone! We have just completed 4 days of water safety with our R-3 students. Thank you to the staff who have supervised throughout the week, also to Leah and Fiona who have coordinated the program. It is quite a task to manage the buses, supervision, rearrange NIT programs and yard duties. Feedback from staff and swimming instructors have been really positive. It’s great to acknowledge the values that our students demonstrate daily.
Our Year 4/5 students will participate in Surf Education and the Year 6 students will participate in Aquatics in Term 4.
The Year 6 students will be attending camp at Mylor next week from Wednesday – Friday. The students are really excited, as are the attending staff. Some of the activities planned include archery, bouldering, giant swing, bridge building and team building activities.
Get excited for Book Week! As well as our regular “Book Week Parade” on Friday 26th August @ 9am, we will be hosting the Scholastic Book Fair. This is a great opportunity to purchase reading material for your family. The Book Fair will be open from Friday 18th August (3pm-3:30pm) and Monday 21st - Wednesday 23rd August (8:15am – 8:45am & 3pm – 3:30pm) The Book Fair will be held in Room 3, just follow the signs!

You’re invited to complete the 2023 annual parent survey, which is now open.
In the week beginning Monday 31 July you should have received an email from the Parent Survey Team with a unique link to participate in the survey.
The survey takes less than 10 minutes and will help us understand:
- what we’re doing well
- where we can improve
- what’s important to you.
Your answers won't identify you or your child. Only collated feedback will be provided to our school.
Information collected will inform school improvement planning and activities at the school.
The survey closes midnight Sunday 27 August.
If you would like to participate in the survey, you can use our school’s unique link to the survey.
In Room 9 for Science we have been learning all about the weather!
We have talked about the different types of weather and seasons. We designed our very own weather charts and next week will get to make our charts.
We have discussed the importance of using our senses to describe the weather and we have become very good at recording the weather in our weekly weather booklets!
This term in Science our two classes are expanding our knowledge from the Earth to other celestial bodies that make up our solar system. So far we have painted planets, researched about our chosen planet and then last week with a partner we had a challenge to produce a poster in 35 minutes about the sun and its role within our solar system.
This is just the beginning of our space focus, stay tuned to see where our spacecraft travels to throughout the term.
Wednesday Week 2 the MALPA Students went to Calvary Hospital for a tour. Students got the opportunity to meet with Doctor Sharad to learn about what it takes to be a doctor. He gave them some important information about reading medicine labels and left them with inspiring take home messages.
Students learnt about the hospitality side of the hospital from Tony and what it takes to make sure all the patients are given fresh healthy meals everyday. The students loved the tour of the kitchen and enjoyed meeting the Chef.
Students enjoyed a delicious lunch from the kitchen before being given a lesson about basic first aid and CPR. Thank you to Calvary Adelaide, Belinda, the kitchen staff, nurses and doctors for having us and answering all our questions.
At the start of this term Children's University introduced a new incentive to celebrate students who have challenged themselves in a range of different learning activities. During the July holidays, we had a superstar participant who completed over 60 hours! This ranged from various experiences around Adelaide, through to numerous activities on the Children’s University Learning Portal.
This award was handed to Keeley from Room 21. Well done Keeley!
