Middle School Newsletter 2017: Volume 9

Middle School Newsletter: Volume 9
Term 2 
Weeks 9-10

What has been happening in the Middle School?

Wow! Another term done and dusted! While we have been super busy, we still can't believe that we are half way through the year. This term has seen a focus on expanding our science knowledge and skills, with our chemical and physical science units. We hosted a whole school open night and our learning was supported by two separate invisits. Our clever and brave Year 3s spent three days in early May demonstrating their knowledge as part of the NAPLAN assessments and the remainder of the term has featured a range of assessment and reflection tasks for our upcoming student reports. Our Middle School team has continued to evolve and we look forward to working closely together again next term! From camp in August to the swimming program and a focus on history, it's sure to be another fun filled term of learning!

bCyberwise - Online Safety

Most children are unaware of the digital footprint they leave every time they post online and the harmful effects it can have on themselves, or on others. Similar to regular discussions we have with the students encouraging them when interacting face to face, the same applies online.

Always T.H.I.N.K.
T- is it TRUE?
H- is it HELPFUL?
K- is it KIND?
