Our class has been having a focus on what it means to be a good friend. When we discussed this in our class meeting the children came up with some AMAZING ways that we can be good friends. The following words are directly from the children. I am so impressed with their thoughtful answers and the vocabulary they are using!
- Appreciate your friends
- Use your manners
- Offer your friends help
- Look after new friends
- Make your friends feel better if they are sad
- Say hello and goodbye every day
- Say sorry to your friends if you need to
- Say thank you if your friend shares a toy
- Be kind
- Be thoughtful
- Be respectful to your friends
- Include your friends in games
- Ask them “Are you ok?”
- Care for each other
- Help them when they are hurt, get them an ice pack from the office
- Sit with your friend if they are unwell
- Give them space sometimes
- Let your friend play with someone else if they want to
- Always speak nicely to your friends
- Give them your smile
Prep/One have also been involved in the Huon Valley Council’s Heartfelt Project. We have been writing caring messages and making hearts. These hearts will eventually be part of an exhibition that the Huon Valley Council will host.

The Australian Maths Competition is ready to challenge again this year. Students from Grade 3, 4, 5 and 6 can enter.
They will have 60 minutes to solve 30 challenging and fun problems. Materials that are normally available in the classroom will be available to help make sense of the challenges, paper will be ready to draw on, make a table, fold and re-orientate to clarify the information provided. The answer form ready to transfer your solution to.
Here’s some samples that you might have to consider….
There is no obligation to take part, but if you like to challenge your problem solving strategies, this is a great chance to do so.
Please have a conversation about the competition and if your child is keen and you would like them to enter, their teacher has a permission form to complete and return to the office by this Friday, 26thth June. We need permissions by this date to allow enough time for postage of question booklets. Glen Huon Primary is covering the entry fee.
I already have 10 entries… are you the next?

Now that we are experiencing regular freezing temperatures in the Huon Valley and the wood heaters are well and truly alight, I thought I would highlight National Burns Awareness Month (MBAM). NBAM is an initiative of Kidsafe, Australia’s leading community organisation dedicated to child injury prevention, and held in June each year as there is a significantly increased risk of burns during winter.
NBAM aims to drive greater awareness amongst the Australian community of burns prevention and the correct first aid treatment for burns.
Most burn injuries are preventable and appropriate first aid can minimise the impact and severity of a burn injury. Children can play an important role in keeping themselves and their families safe. Kidsafe offer a range of resources to further children’s learning. The resources are aimed at children from preschool to 13 years and they can be done at home. To access these resources and for more information go to:
