Take a look at the images and videos below to see how they work!

Our school Twilight Sports may have been cancelled however, it didn’t stop us from having a wonderful Sports Daytime event!

Screaming, cheering, chanting, yelling, encouraging, supporting, singing was heard far and wide over at Domeney Reserve as we cheered on our Year 6 buddies, our class mates, our friends, our brothers and sisters and our team mates.

Thank you Mrs Livingstone for organising this for us.

To add some very practical experiences to our current unit of Inquiry we recently went on an excursion to Base Camp Kids. It was fabulous! All of the students thoroughly enjoyed participating in our two workshops. After putting on our aprons and getting into it, we observed the chemical and physical changes occurring in the mixing and baking of cookies. Then in the Science lab we put on our lab coats, rolled up our sleeves and got into reversible and irreversible changes making Oobleck and slime. It was so much fun becoming like real scientists.

Throughout this year we have spent time learning how to practise mindfulness.

We use the ‘Peaceful Kids’ program which aims to lessen anxiety and stress and increase resilience in children.

The program helps children to learn:

  • The different ways to practice Mindfulness and integrate it into their lives.
  • Their feelings and how this relates to anxiety and stress levels.
  • How to understand triggers for stress and how to calm down when feeling stressed.
  • About the physical symptoms of stress and anxiety and learn how to self regulate.
  • Worrying and how it affects their happiness.
  • Different types of thinking that increase anxiety or lessen anxiety.​
  • Ways to create a balanced lifestyle including lots of chill out time and being in the flow.
