Farm Trip – Room 2

The students from Room 2 visited Kelmscott Farm School yesterday.

        

Students had the chance to cuddle chicks and rabbits.

                                       

Make some scones.

                

View a shearing demonstration and pick some apples in the orchard.

 

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.

            

                            

Meraki Festival

On Wednesday the 20th of June the Gosnells Primary School Senior Choir attended the inaugural Meraki Festival at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre (PCEC) after we were fortunate enough to be afforded the opportunity to attend for free after winning a 50 words or less competition to have our registration paid!  This meant 48 of our Year 5 and 6 students got a full day at the PCEC of rehearsal on a professional stage, dance workshops, team bonding and competitions before coming back in the evening ready to perform in an audience of well over 800 people.

Our group did an incredible job winning Best Theme for our inclusion and acceptance based Musical Theatre item that featured songs from Disney’s Descendants 2 and The Little Mermaid, Annie and Shrek the Musical. We also received very generous scholarships for Aidan and Aden as budding performers, and a $400 donation to make a Yamaha purchase for the school. We have had wonderful feedback from everyone who attended including the adjudicators on the night.  Well done to the Senior Choir!!

 

LEMONADE FACTORY

A great day was had by all in Room 1 making lemonade, although I hear they may have exhausted a vast amount of sugar!!

Room 1 completed an exercise in procedural writing, followed by the making of the lemonade. Suffice to say, it was lots of fun and a great success. WELL DONE!!!!

GARDENING CLUB

Managing the science garden continues as we have now re-planted the topiaries (Duranta Geisha Girl) and have re-planted out the proposed hedge. Experience having taught us that the Tom Thumbs couldn’t stand up to the summer heat, we have chosen Westringia Jervis Gem and Westringia Lilac and Lace to take their place. These natives to Western Australia should do well, and like a good hair-cut, so look out for the hedge developing over the coming months.

General maintenance continues with mowing, raking, watering and adding a fish fertilizer every two weeks to the watering cans to boost plant growth. Our gerberas are enjoying their second flush of flowers, just in time for the ANZAC service.

SEDA 17

Once again the year 11 and 12 students from SEDA (Sports Education Development Australia) came to our school to deliver a series of Fremantle Docker inspired footy clinics. SEDA is an excellent option for students who want to complete their senior secondary education whilst gaining vocational education and training (VET) qualifications that are nationally recognised. Students graduate SEDA as mature, resilient, independent and capable young adults with the ability to both lead and work within teams. For more information about SEDA feel free to speak to Mr De Antoni or you can view their webpage: http://www.sedagroup.com.au/wa/about-seda/who-is-seda-group/
