Indonesian Fun!

Last week the junior grades joined Miss Ireland in Indonesian to learn about Indonesian food. Students were taught about popular dishes in Indonesia with Miss Ireland bringing in some yummy curries, snacks and Nasi goreng for students to admire. Students then joined in on making and tasting traditional Javanese banana pancakes! YUM!

Grade 1/2 Incursion

Dear parents,

Just a reminder that there is an incursion planned for tomorrow. At this point we are hoping that we regain power so that this can run smoothly but we have some backup plans just in case.

The information below was printed in last weeks newsletter.

“On Wednesday, 15th March our Grade 1 and 2 students will be visited by Captain Eric from CHIPS (Christians Helping in Primary Schools). Our Investigations topic for the term has been focused on students’ emotional health, in particular recognising our feelings, how to get along with others, solving conflict, showing persistence and being resilient. Captain Eric is an extremely engaging and fun presenter who will cover these topics in a 45 minute session. We are very excited to have Captain Eric visit Beaconsfield Primary School again.”

Regards,

The 1/2 team.

Camp Quality Puppet Show

Today the Camp Quality pupetteers came to talk about the power of positivity with our grade 1-3 students. Together, Kylie and Dean were able to overcome their fears to teach the children about some of the hardships that cancer patients face and what we can do to help.

We would like to say a huge thankyou to Camp Quality for their time. You can go to www.campquality.org to donate or to find out more information about this wonderful charity that assists kids with cancer in making them smile.

You can also message Kylie if you have any questions by going to www.campquality.org.au/message-to-kylie.
