Gallery Viewing Term 1

The 5/6 M and M Gallery Viewing Team did a wonderful job sharing all our Term 1 learning with our school community. It was great to have our blog to showcase some of the great work we have done during the term and the ‘Harlem Shuffle‘ was a BIG hit with all the visitors to our room. We also enjoyed going around to some of the other classes and seeing what they have been learning about. Here are some photos of our team in action – well done team!

Sign Holding!

Our class excitedly line up at the door, holding our inspirational signs and thinking about what might happen when others see our posters. As we start to walk down the stairs towards the door, we are all pretty nervous. Once we get out the door, we raise our signs, and everyone sees them. I can see the students reactions and most of them are probably thinking, ”What are they doing?”, ”Why are the doing that?” and ”This is so weird and unusual!”. Once we start to walk up the stairs towards the school opening, we can see the smiles on all the parents faces and I’m sure that the whole class feel heartwarmed. We wave at any cars going past and they wave back and smile, and sometimes they even honk! I observe the way that all the car honks sound different. When a car honks, we all cheer. It was such a great feeling when someone waved, gave a thumbs up, honked, or even just smiled at our posters. It made us feel successful and satisfied. I think this whole experience has helped our community by cheering people up and giving them positive quotes to think about. This was a very fun and joyful experience. I hope to do it again in the future.

Guest Post by Hannah R Dunalley Pick Me Up Project

For Integrated/Religon we are suppoting Dunalley Primary school in Tasmania. We are brainstorming ideas about how we can make their day. The reason why we are supporting this school is because it was burnt down. The only things remaining were a very old chimney and the sign at the front of the school. So far we have watched a video about their school. The video showed us photos of their school before it burnt down and after it had burnt down. We saw how beautiful their school was especially being by the ocean which is why we thought it was a little bit of a surprise that it burnt down. One of the sad things was they had just built a brand new playground for the students. Some of the ideas we have had include sending them each a letter from us, having a lolly jar competition to raise some money to buy some things for them and making some bits and pieces for them. We hope they can get back on track for a really happy life. Here is the video!


Four day hike on Maria Island

On the 23rd February, my mother and I hiked our way through the wilderness that rests on Maria Island, located off the

eastern coast of Tasmania.

This was to be a fabulous experience full of invigorating walks, load bearing packs and treasured moments, lapping up

the world as God created it to be.   We travelled by bus from Hobart to Triabunna, boarded a boat from the pier and anchored

just short of the shore off Maria’s coast.  We placed our 10kg packs on our backs and waded through the crystal waters

to land upon a majestic but deserted beach.  We trudged along the beach and crossed an isthmus to reach another beach

which led to our first camp.  For the next four days we were to live without power, flushing toilets, televisions, computers

or even radios.  Heaven on a stick!
