Early Stage One have been investigating volume. They compared internal volume by filling and emptying containers with water. They used mathematical language such as ‘full’, ‘empty’ and ‘about half full’ when explaining their thinking! A perfect learning task for a very warm day!

Stage 3 Outreach Projects We are so proud of Monique, Cianna, Mackenzie & Chloe from Stage 3 for all of their effort with their Outreach Project. This term our students have been serving morning tea to parishioners after mass for a small donation. These generous donations have allowed the girls to go shopping for essential items and gift vouchers to give to families in need that live in our community. Well done team!

Each day, our ES1 students work on their letter and sound knowledge to help support reading and writing achievement! This regular and consistent focus has seen many of our students master all single sounds and many students are able to independently decode unfamiliar words when reading and attempt to write words confidently. What an achievement! ⭐️ These practise tasks are presented in interactive games which are always fun and engaging. Perhaps this is a game you can play in the car on holiday road trips in these upcoming holidays.
