Preparing for Year 6 Exhibition

Each year our Year 6 students showcase the outcomes of their learning journey through the IB Primary Years Programme at the Year 6 Exhibition, presenting detailed information on a range of sub-topics within an umbrella topic. At our recent St John's Campus Assembly, the Year 6 students shared about the process, key concepts and roles that are involved in preparing and presenting the Exhibition. It was also an opportunity for the students to practise before they share this information with parents at the Student Led Conferences and Exhibition Information Night on Thursday 22 June. 

During the Assembly we also celebrated the group of girls that were involved in the Crows Girls Football Tournament recently. The team was coached by Darryl Wakelin. Well done to the girls involved!

Reception Jolly Phonics Dress-Up Day

On Friday, students from our Reception classes enjoyed the opportunity to dress up as their favourite Jolly Phonics characters. It was wonderful to see so many students, as well as their teachers and classroom assistants, joining in with the spirit of the day.

PNG Visitors

On Friday 16 June we were pleased to welcome three special visitors from Papua New Guinea to our campus. Bishop Jack Urame, Pastor Kinim Siloi and Mr Bernhard Kaisom joined us for our Chapel service and then stayed to talk with us about our partnership with the Siassi Islands in PNG. Thank you to Mrs Wells for coordinating this visit. We now look forward to five staff members travelling to PNG later this year to discuss future partnership plans with our friends from Siassi.
