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.
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.
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.
