Year 6 Farewell

Tonight we had a fabulous send-off for our graduating class of 2017! It was a bittersweet evening as we are sad to say goodbye to our kids, but we are so excited for what is ahead of them. We are so proud of each and every one of you and wish you all the best for high school and beyond. Have a look through the memories of our Year 6 students and photos from the farewell below.

Presentation Day

Thank you to everyone who celebrated our 2017 achievements with us today. What an amazing year it has been! Below is the photo slideshow from the presentation this morning if you’d like to watch it.

Christmas Carols

Thank you to everyone who came along to celebrate the festive season at our Carols event. Well done to Miss Hibbert and our talented students for their beautiful performances!

Walk a Mile Koori Style

Yesterday our Year 6 boys took a stand against domestic violence and violence in our community by joining in the Walk a Mile Koori Style march. We joined with many other schools across the Hunter and made our way through Newcastle streets to King Edward Park where we made a solemn oath to ‘never be violent, never be silent’. At the park we enjoyed mountains of food, drink, lollies, ice blocks and other treats while we saw bands, including the really rockin’ Police Band, and traditional Indigenous dance performances. Thank you Ms Chapman and Mr Slade for organising this event for our boys.

Tie-Dye!

A huge thank you to Jane for continuing the Year 6 Art Cave tie-dye tradition. Students did a fantastic job making their shirts! Just remember to not wash them with the whites.

Wonder

Today, Stage 3 had a WONDERful day as they headed to Hoyts Cinema to view the film ‘Wonder‘, which is one of our Stage 3 novels. The movie was a beautiful dramatisation of the book. Afterwards, we headed to Centennial Park for lunch and a play in the sun.

6B, what was your favourite part of the film? Did it make you laugh, cry, both? Leave me a response below. I’d love to hear your thoughts.
