Inquiry: Should I Help?


Posted by owenf | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on May 31, 2016

Throughout this term the Foundation students have been learning about a big question, ‘Should I Help?’


They have learnt about the enterprising qualities of other young people and are now being enterprising themselves by raising funds for our school sponsor child, Rameses, who lives in the Philippines.


The Foundation students have brainstormed different ideas of how to raise the sponsorship funds for Rameses. They have elected to organise that on Thursday 9th June the whole school is invited to participate in Winter Pyjama Day. Students (and staff) are invited to wear their pyjamas to school for the day. All each child will need to bring is a gold coin donation and if you like, your teddy too! A note will be in this week’s school Newsletter.


They have also decided to make Jelly cups which will also be on sale on that day for 50 cents.

Hopefully we will raise the funds to support Rameses and his family but also have some fun too!!

Recently the Foundation students have been learning more and more about different iPad apps and computer programs. It has been fantastic to see the students’ hand-eye coordination develop by using the mouse, keyboard and touch-screens. They have used the ‘Draw’ app on the iPads to create labelled pictures of computers. Here are some outstanding examples of the great work they have done!
