• Week 3 Term 4 2014

    Class placement 2015 We are again starting the big task of placing all students into the best classroom learning environments for their 2015 learning opportunities. Due to the unusually high number of students who have enrolled unexpectedly at our School this year we will not be posting class lists before the end of this year, as we have done in past years.  Instead we will be allowing for the new families to arrive and be placed in the best locations. This may mean having to re jig numbers and class level combinations. More information will be sent out as we get closer to the end of the year. This is a last call for any unknown information that you think may be relevant and help us with class placement or information you believe we should know i.e. cousins being separated etc.  Please let your classroom teacher know so this can be recorded on our cumulative record even if you mentioned it a few years ago please remind us just in case.  


    BYOD -  Bring Your Own Devices

    Now that we have our computer network up and running effectively with wireless connections and safety systems, we are ready to invite our Year 5 & 6 students to bring their own devices to School to aid their learning in 2015. We are on an exciting journey and devices will add to the depth and breadth of student learning in a way that can not be achieved with pens and paper alone. Having direct access to a device while learning and creating is much easier than having to sit and wait for your turn. By allowing students to bring their own devices we can improve the facilitation of learning and teaching in an inquiry based, collaborative environment. We are not asking, or expecting, you to purchase devices for your children. However we are offering the opportunity if you wish to take it up. We will be allowing 2 different devices in 2015; a Chromebook or an iPad or iPad Mini.

    We are holding an information evening on Thursday 13th November about how the learning and teaching will look in 2015 for our Senior Syndicate, what safety protocols are in place and generally answer the many questions parents may have. The meetings will be held in Karaka 15. Due to numbers we will be holding 2 meetings. Year 4 parents are invited to attend from 5:30 - 6:30pm and Year 5 parents from 7:00 to 8:00pm. We hope to see you there.


    The International Competitions and Assessments for Schools (I.C.A.S.), are independent diagnostic assessments with a competition element. These exams are voluntary and user pays from Year Four- Year Six. All papers are reviewed by experienced teachers to ensure that they are skills-based and relevant to what students are learning at school. Throughout the course of the year students are offered the opportunity to sit international exams in the following areas: Maths, English, Spelling, Writing, Science, and Computers.  I.C.A.S. exams are monitored by teachers in schools under normal examination conditions. Administration Guidelines are provided with I.C.A.S. papers to ensure that the same conditions are afforded to all students sitting I.C.A.S. Over one million student entries are accepted from over 6,300 schools in Australia and New Zealand annually. In addition, students from over 20 countries including Hong Kong, India, Malaysia, Singapore, South Africa and the USA participate in I.C.A.S. each year.  Thank you to all students who entered the competitions.


    Well done to all students! Below are the results for the students who scored merit, credit, distinction and high distinction. We also wish to congratulate those who received participation awards. It takes courage to take these exams and we are very proud of you.

    Entertainment Book Thank you to all those who purchased an Entertainment Book this year. Through sales we have raised $1,668 with little effort for our School. I know, for  many people, it is an essential piece of equipment that they keep in the car to get the bargains. Now it is also available as an App for your phone.



    Group Day Another perfect overcast and wonderful day. 32 of our students competed at Matangi last Wednesday and performed well. Congratulations to you all and to your pets. Thanks once again to all the parents involved and supporting.
