It has been a big two weeks for student leadership at Loreto, with the announcement of the School Captain and Vice-Captain in the Secondary School and the handing over from the Semester One to Semester Two leaders in the Primary School. 

After a week of inspiring speeches and some advice from the Semester One leaders, I am pleased to announce that the Primary School Leaders for Semester Two 2020 are as follows:

Year 5 Identity Project

This Tuesday marked the end of a term long history project for Year 5 students.  The girls were asked to think critically about their own identities and reflect on how their environment has shaped them. Students had the opportunity to ask friends and family members about their local community and culture and how it has shaped them into the person they are today.  The classrooms were buzzing with energy as Year 5 students showcased their Identity Projects to Year 6 students and special guests. Thank you to Ms Best and Mrs Anderson for providing such an engaging study of personal history. 

Author Visit – R.A. Spratt 

This week the  Loreto Primary School Library welcomed the talented and engaging author Rachel Spratt (whose “nom de plume” is R.A. Spratt).   Rachel is well-known for the popular series: Friday Barnes, Nanny Piggins  and her most recent series of books, The  Peski Kids.

The students were treated to an entertaining  virtual live reading of excerpts from Friday Barnes  as well as  having a Q and A session.  Rachel  also shared some of her techniques, inspirations and gave an insight into her writing process. 

It was  both enjoyable and inspirational, as well as a wonderful opportunity for the girls to develop their  writing ideas  for Write A Book  in A Day  later this term.
