We have a team of students participating in the Huon and Channel Cross Country event at Huonville tomorrow. We wish these students all the best for the day.
We farewell Willow and Fynn and their parents this week as the family undertakes an adventure to Germany. We will keep in touch and look forward to hearing about their experiences.
Currently we only have breakfast club running on a Wednesday morning it would be great to have some volunteers to fill the gaps on Monday, Tuesday, and Friday. It is a great way to get to know our students and helps them start the day in a great way.
The arborists have had a tidy up in our Bush Playground and we have a few tonne of firewood on offer. A wood splitter would be handy for some larger rounds but there is also quite a bit of limb wood. If you are interested contact the office on 62666240.
A Mathematical Challenge for all
Use your detective skills…
Remember persistence is always beneficial to our mathematical discoveries.
Enjoy and please come and share with me.

This will be our last week focussing on preposition words.
Next month we will be thinking about Inquiry - asking questions, wondering about the world and exploring ideas deeper.
On Wednesday (9-11 in Kinder) we will be cooking yummy savoury fritters, making prints from bubbles and making collages.
On Thursday (9-11 in the bush) we will be cooking corn on the cob in our campfire, and making a trust walk with ropes.
On Friday (9-11 in the Hall) we'll be reading the story "We're Going on a Bear Hunt", and then we'll use the obstacle equipment to go on our own bear hunt!
This Saturday is our monthly Bush Playgroup morning - 9-11 in the bush! We will be learning all about scats (animal poos!) and the other signs left by the animals that share our bush playground.
All Smarties sessions are free, and open to all children aged 0-5 and their Mums, Dads, families and carers.

Grade 2/3 have been investigating the properties of water and how we use it.
As a scientific inquiry into how water behaves, we constructed a walking rainbow using seven cups, water, food colouring, a spoon and paper towel. We poured a small amount of water into every second cup and added different food colouring to the water.
We stirred it well and then folded our paper towels so that every cup had two paper towel ends in them. The water very quickly began to travel up the paper towels using a capillary action.
The empty cups had water trickling down the paper towels and into them. Over the next two days the colours blended. We will display our rainbow somewhere around the office area for everyone to see.
