Pink and Purple.
It is great to see a sea of pink and purple at Glen Huon today. It is wonderful to be able to support Grace and her family to get the medical support she requires. Grace is one of our LiL students and will attend our kinder next year following in the footsteps of her big sister Elana.
We currently have a lunchtime focus on building basketball skills. Basketball lines will be painted on the court in order for the students to be able to play a game. Mrs Tucker, Mar West and Deanne Murtagh are supporting the students to learn the rules. It is great to see them play together.
Due to unforseen cicumstances Smarties will be cancelled on Wednesday and Friday. We will run our Thursday session in the bush with the support of Tania Steenholdt from wayrapparti. She is planning some exciting activities in the bush.
Last Tuesday 3rd September thirteen students set off for Kingborough Sports Centre to compete in the Primary Schools Volleyball Tournament. Whilst some teams were quick to show us skills they had practiced inside their school gymnasiums, we were soon able to fine tune our own and make a powerful comeback.
Each game lasted 7 minutes, as soon as one game finished the next started. Thankfully, we had a few gaps in the program to practice or rest. We played a total of 10 games altogether!
A great effort students, we hope you continue your involvement in the sport.
Miss van der Schans and Deanne Murtagh.
We have learnt many interesting facts about the properties of prime numbers (numbers that can only be made by multiplying 1 and the number itself. That is, they have no other factors).
You need to use prime numbers to solve the following puzzle.
Each row, column and diagonal adds up to 666.

Thursday 12 September is R U OK?Day – a day when we’re reminded to ask, “Are you OK?” and to remember every day of the year to support people who may be struggling with life’s ups and downs.
At Glen Huon Primary, we know that regular meaningful conversations can make a difference. And you don’t have to be an expert to ask how someone’s going. Just a great mate and a good listener.
This year in the build-up to R U OK?Day we’re shining a light on the times we should be asking our friends and loved ones this important question. We want everyone in our school community to know that if something’s up with someone you know – there’s something going on in their life or you notice a change in what they’re doing or saying – it’s time to trust that gut instinct and ask them “Are you OK?”
R U OK? is a national charity dedicated to inspiring all of us to have regular, meaningful conversations to support anyone struggling with life.
You can learn more about the signs and how to ask R U OK? at www.ruok.org.au
