Yes it's actually true. No list this week, but do encourage your child to read and continue with the studyladder Mathematics tasks that have been set.

These may be purchased through the office. Students need to get a ticket for when their family is going but I believe don't have to pay. They are going fast now.

CAMP Parents

A big thank you to the parents who came away on camp with Navigators 1. Catherine and I couldn't organise and run camps such as this without the great parent support we get. Could Camp parents please fill in the camp evaluation form and get it back to us before the end of this term. Thank you. We were so lucky the weather was kind to us when we went.

CAMP PARENTS MISBEHAVING. But don't worry Ms W and Mrs D got them sorted out !!!!

Welcome To Term 3

Welcome back.  Be ready for a fun packed, adventurous and busy term with Movie making, camp and sports. Check out the Inquiry Page for examples of documentaries made by children. Study these to get ideas of special effects and filming techniques that can be used in movie making. Experiment at home and school taking video footage and using apps such puppet pals. The more research and experience you have in cinematography the better our documentary will be. So get started and enjoy.
