Oatlympics Day

Standard

Today Prep SD celebrated the Olympics by participating in the Oatlympics Day. Prep SD had so much fun dressing up in Green and Gold to support the Aussies competing at the Olympics. It was great to see that all of the children and their families got behind this special event, as it only occurs once every four years.

Thank you Mum’s and Dad’s for all of your help!

Special thanks to Mrs Gamble our sport teacher for organising such a successful day.

100 Days of School

Standard

On Friday the 22nd of July the Preps celebrated the fact that they had been at BIG school for 100 days. We enjoyed making a headband, our class party and practicing counting to 100 throughout the day. Pop into the classroom to see what your child will look like and what they will do when they are 100 years old!

Reflecting back to the Preps very first day of school, I am so very proud of how far our little people have come and all that they have learnt.

Congratulations Preppies and Happy 100 Days of School!

Miss Dudley

We are continuing to use our weather each morning to discuss what the weather “feels like” and “looks like” each day using words such as; freezing, cold, warm, hot, cloudy, rainy, story, windy and sunny.

Don’t forget:

Friday 29th July we will have our coin line-up for the schools sponsor child Kibra. Please encourage your children to donate a few dollars ($1, $2 and 50c coins) to help keep Kibra in school and give her the education she deserves.
