What a magnificent week!
The inaugural Wellbeing Week proved to be highly successful. Our school’s culture is based around positivity and filling others’ buckets. Last week, the students certainly involved themselves in all aspects of the week.
The Junior School Council ‘Can Drive’ netted 780 cans of food for the Salvation Army to distribute to needy families.
Also our ‘Come as your Hero’ Free Dress Day collected $480.00 for State Schools Relief.
The ‘Bucket Filler’ activity conducted by the Year 5&6 students proved to be highly successful with the students demonstrating great leadership skills conducting lessons for the junior students.
Lunchtime sports activities were well attended. It was great to see so many teachers outside conducting clinics. My highlight was the aerobics and Bollywood dancing conducted by Mrs Epstein and Mrs Dhami in the Wentworth Building.
Finishing off the week with the Valet Service proved to be an appropriate end to the week. It was quite touching to see our Year 5&6 students walking the younger students to class. The positive conversations and rapport between the students highlighted that we should be extremely proud of the students at our school.
