Thank you Administration Block 1 Teddy Bears Picnic Block 1 students and teachers wore their pyjamas to school on Wednesday for their annual Teddy Bears Picnic. Teddy bears were lucky enough to be allowed to sleep over in Block 1 but unfortunately were very naughty and made a great big mess of the classrooms. Teddy’s were paced on red dots for time out to reflect on their behaviour! Thank You Crow Alert A very special Thank You to Bouvard Recreation Centre and also Marcell Brewer who have donated $315 worth of free products for the P&C Thermo raffle! Crows have been getting into open school bags and stealing lunches so please make sure student lunches are sealed in a lunch box and school bags are kept zipped closed. Thank you. Calendars are available for purchase from Administration for $5.00. Proceeds will go towards the continuation of the chaplain service. This week in Japanese, students tried their hand at Japanese flower arrangement or ikebana. Ikebana is based on simple design with only a few branches and flowers used. Students had a real flair for it and we now have some wonderful arrangements around our school. Thank you to all the families who contributed the beautiful flowers and leaves. Well done to Navana, Lok and Ezra on their beautiful creation.
