Year 6 Students Fly High
Last Wednesday, our Year 6 boys and girls headed to Tyabb Airfield for their annual Flight Excursion. This hands-on component of the Year 6 Aviation unit sees each student offered the opportunity to fly in a duel controlled Cessna, with a Flight Instructor. It is always an amazing and memorable experience and one that our students have been enjoying for 20 years.
I thank the boys and Mrs Neilson and Mrs Heymanson for their involvement in the activity and for being wonderful ambassadors of our School.
Our Junior School boys got in the spirit of Movember with a special Assembly, featuring Kahoot questions and discussion, with the students having the opportunity to wear a ‘mo’. Our Junior School Teachers joined in the fun too. A sausage sizzle fundraiser was held at lunchtime. This provided another opportunity for us to discuss mental health and wellbeing with our boys.
It was certainly a most enjoyable day on Friday for our Preps and Year 1s as they held their annual PJ party! Activities during the day and after school included special games, a movie in our School theatre and a visit from the Ice Cream van, and each boy decorating his very own ‘I survived the Prep and Year 1 Pyjama Party’ T-Shirt! My sincerest thanks to Ms Peters and Mrs Sloane for organising such a fun event.
Dads and Lads
Our annual ‘Year 2 Dads and Lads Evening’ was a fun and energetic event. We saw our Year 2 boys join with their dads for games in the gym, a BBQ and then a very spirited and competitive session of Ten Pin Bowling and Laser Tag at Chirnside Park Oz ten Pin Bowling. Thank you to all the dads who made the occasion fun and memorable.
