Well another term is over and what a big, busy and exciting term it has been! So in this final post for the Term 3, I thought it would be appropriate to acknowledge and celebrate some of the outstanding student achievements we are very proud of – many of which have had the wonderful support of our class teachers and our Learning Enhancement Teacher (Mrs Katie Cooper).
Achievements in Junior School
This term students from Year 2 to Year 6 have been independent workers, focusing on areas of personal interest and independent inquiry.
Siyan Ai from Year 6 competed in the National Spellmasters competition finishing a commendable third in round 5. She progresses to the Australian finals in November.
Twenty-four students competed in the Australian Maths Talent Quest this year, completing a myriad of mathematical investigations based on personal interest and areas of expertise. All students who entered received award certificates.
To conclude, two students entered the National History Challenge, ‘Triumph and Tragedy’. Phoebe Bourke (Year 5) writing an Australian History essay about children in Australia during the Second World War and Adya Pandey producing a PowerPoint about Malala Yousafzai. Both Adya and Phoebe have progressed to the state final which will be held in October.
The school congratulates all students on their effort and achievement.
Best wishes to everyone for a relaxing and enjoyable holiday break.
Mrs Melissa Graham
Head of Junior School
