On Wednesday our sensory activity will be making natural perfumes and massage oil using rice bran oil and essential oils. We'll also be painting, cutting and pasting, and playing with all the lovely toys and equipment in our beautiful new Kinder room!
On Thursday we'll get out the clay and get messy in the bush! We'll be cooking sweet potato on the campfire, and searching for bugs, mushrooms and animal tracks.
On Friday in the Hall we'll be playing with balloons and bats. We'll read a fun story about a friendly fish and make a sparkly fish to take home!
We hope to see you there.

On Friday, students from 5/6, 2/3 and Prep welcomed Yumi-sensei back a second time this year to look at Shodo, or Japanese calligraphy. Yumi-sensei discussed the history of Shodo and how kanji within the Japanese language has evolved over time. Grade 2/3 & 5/6 students created their artistic writing pieces by using sumi ink, washi paper and Japanese calligraphy brushes, while Preps used paint and brush to do the same. The kanji that we concentrated on was hana (花 - flower) and it was great to see some of the preps demonstrate their growing knowledge by highlighting the two meanings of hana (flower and nose) to Yumi-sensei. Also, a number of students challenged themselves to write more kanji, such as river(川), moon(月), sun(日), mountain(山) and sea(海).
It has come to our attention that there has been a couple of cases of headlice in the school, so we ask that parents be very vigilant with their children's hair. Notices will go home with the children in the classes that are affected.
