Primary School News

 Evening of Eminence

On Tuesday evening the Primary School quad was transformed into a veritable who’s who of women who have a made an important contribution to the world. The girls had spent the term researching their eminent person, creating a biography, a bio-riddle and a stall containing information, souvenirs, questions to ask and of course food that represented their eminent person. The girls were outstanding as they courageously took to the stage, dressed in character to present their bio-riddle, which gave the audience an insight into the lives some of the world’s most remarkable people.

After reflecting on the evening, one Year 6 student wrote:

“I loved learning about my eminent person. What I enjoyed most of all was the process of collecting information, writing and performing my bio-riddle. Not many people know that when Audrey Hepburn was a child, she had to go into hiding and suffered from malnutrition due to food rationing. The hunger was so severe that she made bread out of tulip flowers.” – Rachel McLachlan    

A big thank you to Miss Ball and Miss Speter for supporting the girls on this fascinating learning journey and Ms Ugonotti, Ms Kearns, parents and Primary School staff for attending.

5 Cent Challenge

Last Friday the Primary School took part in a 5 Cent Challenge with all funds raised going towards purchasing items to sell at the Primary School Kids’ Corner stall at Spring Fair. The class with the longest 5 cent piece line won a movie afternoon complete with lollies and popcorn! The lucky class was 6S, who had 6 lines of coins running the length of the Learning Common. Thank you to Mrs Lee, Mrs Whelen and Ms Ekins for their organisation and to the girls for their generosity.

The girls raised $1,227.75 – that’s a lot of  5 cent pieces!
