DEAR in Room 19

     

Every morning in Room 19, students get the opportunity

to share a book with their parents or family members.

     

                 

This morning, even though it was raining nearly every family arrived to share a book.

     

     

Reading with your child every day, is great way to instill the love of reading with your child.

     

    

100 Days of School Celebrations

       

Did you know that many classes have been counting how many days they have been at school this year? And yesterday was the 100th day!

Students celebrated the fact that they were 100 days smarter, 100 days older and 100 days taller by completing a variety of fun activities all focused on the number 100.

Students drew what they may look like at 100 years of age, counted collections of 100 items, wrote about what they would spend $100 on and blew up 100 balloons.

Freaky Friday

Students and staff wore their freakiest best to help raise money for Year 6 Graduation celebrations.

Together $240 was raised! A super effort.

 

                                               

                                              

 

Perth City Ballet Visit

Thanks to Act, Belong, Commit and Healthways, the students of Gosnells PS were entertained by the dancers from Perth City Ballet. Students watched an hour long performance and Year 6 students had a chance to learn and perform some Hip Hop moves. A wonderful experience for all involved.

            

                            

Crown Theatre

On Monday the 21th of August the Gosnells Primary School Senior Choir attended and performed in a concert showcasing the West Australian government school and their musical talents at the Crown Theatre.  50 of our talented Year 5 and 6 students spent a term and a half of choir sessions, recess, and lunch time rehearsals, as well as rigorously practicing at home to rehearsal tracks Miss Johnson provided on YouTube to produce our own mini performance of ‘Matilda the Musical’.  Using sections of ‘When I Grow Up’, ‘Naughty’, and ‘Revolting Children’ surrounded by self-devised dialogue, staging and choreography we tied these songs together with our own Matilda inspired narrative.

Our students did an incredible performance to the large audience, getting to experience performing in a prime professional venue and then watch all the other schools and their hard work in an amazing night at the theatre.

 

 

Be U-nique

What an amazing day it was indeed!! Lots of amazing personalities shinning through. Congratulations to all our winners and participants!!

A massive THANK YOU to Lazer Blaze from all the students at Gosnells Primary School for sponsoring the three major prizes.

Celebrating Gosnells

Mrs Rick has been busily organising an exciting new format for our Celebrating Gosnells assembly. This year we will start the morning with a formal assembly to present the class book awards (8:45-9:30). Following this, students will join their family for a picnic morning tea (9:30-10). To finish off our celebration, students lead by Mrs Rick will be presenting the “GPS Street Party” (10:20-11:30) after a long term of preparations and practise!

We really hope our whole school community can join us in this celebration as we welcome in the holiday period. celebrating-gosnells-flier

Walk Safely to School Day

WSTSD_LOGO_10cm Our school is participating in the National Walk Safely to School Day on Friday 20th May 2016. All children are encourage to walk to school on this day. If you live to far away consider parking the car a few blocks away from school and walk the rest of the way.

Regular exercise like walking with your child not only helps them (and you!) beat chronic problems like obesity, heart disease, behavioral and mental health issues and diabetes. It also gives you a great opportunity to teach your child safe ways to behave around roads and traffic.

There will be a special breakfast for those who walk to school on Friday 20th May from 8.00 to 8.30am Remember. Active Kids are Healthy Kids so get planning your own Walk Safely Day journey for Friday 20th May 2016.
