Reflections Part 1.

As half our Team is away on camp, I took the opportunity to ask our Year 5s to jot down their reflections on 2016.

The highlight was working as a team & getting things done. The good stuff were the events that happened eg R2SD, NWS2SD, W2SD and getting Platinum at the end of Term 1. The not so good was some of the Team didn't want to go to meetings or they didn't work their hardest. The best thing was working as a team & setting up events for students to use AT.

Our Junior Green Team and coordinating staff have been working hard to come up with ideas on how to make the roads around our school safer. Parents, staff and students often comment on how dangerous it is for our students to be crossing a main road to get to school every morning. We are petitioning to get a lollipop lady at or near the roundabout on Safety Bay Road so students are able to cross safely onto Baldivis Road. If you are a student, teacher, parent or community member that commutes…

Final instalment of the CHALLENGE.

Last but by no means least, our final class participant in the Challenge, Room 17. I had been given a few hints on what this was like so I was really looking forward to seeing it completed.

How We Walked Over October.

For this year's WOO we were very busy! We had hosted walks (W2SD), Walking Wednesday Passports and a Farewell WOO Challenge.

Our school was given lots of WOO stickers from the Heart Foundation, so we decided to have a classroom challenge. Each class was given 300 stickers & asked to create something showing AT. The classes were given all of October to complete the challenge. We are judging next week.

We have made some WW Passports where each Wednesday in October that you…
