Term 4 - Week 6 Update

Good afternoon parents,
Below are some updates for week 6.

Leadership Speeches:
The speeches were presented yesterday. They were brilliant! Everyone spoke extremely well and I was very proud of their efforts.



T20 Blast:
Mrs Sinclair has sent out a note this afternoon about a T20 blast day at GMAS this Friday 17th November. Please return this note tomorrow. I went to this event last year and it was an excellent day. Attached below is a copy of the note that was sent out.



Remembrance Day:
On Saturday the country celebrated Remembrance Day. On Friday afternoon we read through the poem Flanders Fields. After this, we created our own poppy fields in remembrance of the people that have fought for our freedom.



Hopman Cup:
Yesterday afternoon we were visited by Jason from tennis WA. He had with him the one and only Hopman Cup. This was an awesome experience for the students to be involved in.

Term 4 - Week 5 Update

Good afternoon parents,
Below are some updates for week 5.

Leadership Speeches:
Thank you supporting your children during the creation of their leadership speeches. There have been many helpful ideas coming from home and it is excellent to see parents and children working so closely together.

Next Monday 13th November the students will be presenting their speeches in front of the school.

Book Week dress up:
A reminder that this Thursday 9th November, is our book week dress up day. The theme for this year’s dress up is “escape to everywhere” and the students are encouraged to dress up as their favourite book character.

Stationery:
As we are nearing the end of the term, some of the students have been missing lead pencils, but especially glue sticks. All of the glue sticks that I have purchased have run out. If your child has any at home from their original booklist, could they please bring them in.

Week 4 - CARE Values

Good afternoon parents,
Below are some updates for week 4.

C.A.R.E Values:
Today we had a big discussion about the school values at OLC. We broke down the four school values:
·         Compassion
·         Appreciation
·         Respect
·         Excellence

We spoke about how as leaders of the school next year it is vital that we show the school values, as younger year groups will be looking up to us. It is very important that we show these values outside the classroom, but just as important is to show these values inside the classroom to fellow peers.

If you could continue this conversation with your child that would be much appreciated.

iPads:
I would just like to remind everyone that iPads need to brought into the classroom everyday. As well they need to be fully charged. The classroom is starting to become a haven of iPad charging. As we move into the LEADing lights system, it is extremely necessary that iPads come in fully charged.


Leadership Speeches:
The leadership speeches are coming along beautifully. Below are some pictures of the students peer assessing their speech. This created some great discussion between the students.
