BLP Clubs

As the term comes to an end so does our first rotation of Building Learning Power (BLP) clubs for the year. This term the children have had a wonderful time taking part in the different BLP clubs on offer. The Tinker Time Club created the most amazing projects from bird houses to dog kennels. The Coding Club loved designing pathways for the BeeBots to travel through. The Craft Club designed and created the first initial of their name. The Dance Club have been learning a dance that they will perform at un upcoming lunchtime assembly. The Veggie Garden Club have planted the winter crop and are tending to the plants that are already growing. The Gravitrax and Lego Club have created the most amazing constructions and the Games club have learnt how to play many new board games together. At the start of next term our children will choose a new club, which they will be a part of for Term 3.

When I Grow Up!

As we are nearing the end of our Term 2 Integrated Studies topic of history, the Surf Coast Preps were given the opportunity to reflect on all the wonderful learning they’ve experienced.

This week, the Preps focused on the past, the present and inquired into the idea of what they would like to be when they grow up.

Torquay – Then and Now

We have been having an amazing time in Year 1 recreating Torquay! We have split into groups and created the Torquay we see today, and the Torquay of ‘back then’. Year 1 have focused on the incredible differences that have occurred over time. On our Surf Coast walk, we were able to discover all the historical landmarks of Torquay and compare them to what they are today. Using our creative skills, we have created a 3D model of both versions of Torquay. We ae very much looking forward to presenting our model to the Torquay Historical Society next week! We will be putting on a delicious morning tea that will see us practising our well-tuned skills in the kitchen when we partake in historical cooking! What an amazing effort from everyone this term to make Integrated Studies so interactive and exciting!

Year 2 Geography

This term in Geography the Year 2 students have been learning about continents, oceans and Australia’s place on Earth. Their latest endeavour has been an investigation into our local area including the path we took along the Great Ocean Road from Torquay to Aireys Inlet to our camp at Angahook.

Year 3

It is incredibly hard to believe that we are in the second last week of Term 2 already! Scarily this means that we’re halfway through the year! As well as being a short term, it has been quite a disrupted term with almost everyone in the class being off for a week with COVID.

Thank you to all of the Year 3 parents who made the time to attend the celebration of learning conferences this week. It was funny to see how nervous all of the kids were but how proud they were to show you what they had been learning in year three so far.

National Collection of Data on Students With Disabilities

Every year, all schools in Australia participate in the Nationally Consistent Collection of Data on School Students with Disability (NCCD). With data collected on the first Friday in August (this year, on the 5th), the NCCD process requires schools to identify information already available in the school about supports provided to students with disability. These relate to legislative requirements under the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 and the Disability Standards for Education 2005, in line with the NCCD Guidelines (2021).   

Please see the attached NCCD Fact Sheet for more information.

A MYTERN Thought for This Week

Life will throw you curve balls. That's part of the journey - especially since COVID.

So, if you experience moments of feeling out of control, don't judge yourself. It doesn't mean that you are failing.

Grab that wheel and pull over if you have to.

And know that you're doing an awesome job. 👍👏
