Hello grade 5 Students, Parents and Caregivers,


Welcome to term 1 2021!


We have had a very busy and exciting start to the year. Students have settled in well to their new classes and have been getting to know each other and their teachers. We have been busy setting up our class rights and responsibilities and doing lots of work around our school values.

We have had some big events already, including students electing their house and school captains. Congratulations to those students who were successful in being elected.


All grade 5/6 students participated in a first aid course run by St John Ambulance on the 12th February and learnt some invaluable skills.

Sports teams have been chosen for term one with many students going to represent the school at the Gala Day on March 12th in Volleyball, Teeball, Basketball and Cricket.


We also have a Circus Challenge incursion on the 17th of March where students will participate in a range of team building activities.

To finish off the term we have a grade 5/6 camp to Phillip Island planned for the 29th-31st of March. More information regarding camp will be sent home shortly.

Please keep an eye on this page for updates on events and student learning.


Thank you

Dominique Delaney and Michael Pace

Term 2 2021

Welcome back to term two grade 5 students and families!


We finished term one with a two night camp to Phillip Island. All the students who attended had an amazing time and were able to participate in a range of activities such as the giant swing, flying fox, canoeing, raft making and swimming. We also visited the Penguin Parade and Pelican feeding at San Remo. It was a wonderful experience and we were very proud of the way the students conducted themselves. It was great to see the students display their independence, especially when this was the first time many students had been away from home. 


It has been a busy and exciting start to term two for our grade 5's. We have had interschool sport tryouts for Netball, AFL and Soccer and we wish all students selected for those teams good luck for the Gala Day on May 28th. We also have a number of students participating in Cross Country on May 14th. 

NAPLAN preparation has been underway and students will be completing the tests during weeks 4&5 of this term. Our Inquiry this term is on Migration and we look forward to students interviewing family and friends!


Thank you
