Week 7 Update

Good afternoon parents,

Welcome to Week 7...the term is flying by at a rate of knots!


End of Year Excursion - Please make sure that all notes and money are in by this Friday 24th November.

Graduation - Is on Friday 1st December beginning at 5.30pm. Please arrive at the church by 5.15pm at the latest.

St Mary MacKillop Orientation Day - Is on this Thursday 23rd November. I understand that you have received communication direct from SMMC with specific instructions for the day. 

If your child is not attending SMMC they are welcome to attend school on this day and will be supervised accordingly.

Milo T20 Blast - We had a fantastic day on Friday at GMAS, the kids all really enjoyed getting the opportunity to experience T20 cricket and it was wonderful to see the students reconnecting with old friends and making some new ones.

I am sure that we have quite a few budding cricket stars in the making! Mr Danaher did have to go out there and show them a thing or two in preparation for his 50th game on Saturday!


We have been very hard at work experimenting with creating limericks and odes and we are now moving on to creating our very own ballad. I did ask the students to channel their inner 80's rock god to get an idea of some of the real power ballads of the time! 

In maths we have been looking at Order of Operations (Brackets Other operations Division Multiplication Addition Subtraction) which introduces students to early algebraic equations  and we have now moved on to interpreting timetables and time lines which the students will find useful for next year. 

We have also been looking at some of the influencing factors in migration to Australia and how our country came to be so multicultural!


Besides reading, there is no assigned homework for this week.

We will be having our health test on Wednesday and I have asked the students to spend time over the next couple of nights going over the material for the test.

Have a wonderful week,

Mrs Delane
