Welcome back to Term 3!
We hope you all have had a lovely break and are ready for an exciting term ahead that includes our School Camp, ‘Boxwars’ opportunity, our continued inquiries work and much more!
WE HAVE A NEW (SORT OF) STAFF MEMBER IN THE 3/4 TEAM, WELCOMING STEVE MARKS!
Joining us til the end of the room, Steve will be working with us Tuesday-Thursday. A familiar face for some of the Year 3s, he’s really looking forward to working on student projects to unleash their creativity!
SCHOOL CAMP MANYUNG!
Thanks to all of the parents who have volunteered in coming along to help with the camp. We are currently finding out numbers of who is attending the camp so please if you have not handed in your child’s expression of interest form, complete as soon as possible!
Medical and Information forms will be handed out at the end of Week two.
This term, the school is hosting and participating in the filming of a pilot TV program called ‘Boxwars,’ on Wednesday 27 July or Thursday 28 July if weather is poor on the Wednesday. Boxwars, in partnership with Bruce Kane Media (B.J.S.E P/L) are making a Pilot for a Kids TV series with the support of the Australian Children’s Television Foundation. (Bruce Kane has a long relationship with the school, as a parent at Princes Hill. He was also involved in running the Entertainment at the School Bazaar from 2005 to 2012) Calico togas have been made for all students. Students will be involved in decorating the costumes next week using Print Blocks that Hannah has made with some students and making their Roman accessories that they will then wear as part of the crowd scene.
A detailed letter has gone home with your child on Wednesday 13th July. Please fill out the form and have it returned to the school if you are happy for your child to participate as part of the crowd scene. Boxwars creators will be presenting to the students at assembly Friday 15th July @ 3.00pm
For your information, the instrumental music instruction sessions will commence next week on Friday the 22nd of July.
And just a reminder – The instrumental music instructors advise their students on the specific amount of ‘at home practice’ that is required for each individual. Please support your child in making time to practice throughout the week between their classes. Thank you on the behalf of Nic Carmen (Year 2 Teacher).
If you have any concerns or questions about the Boxwars program, school camp or anything else don’t hesitate to come in and ask!
