Pizza oven
We have test started the oven..all working well and ready for the first cook-up. Mosaicing continues with all students expected to contribute in even a small part (after a great deal of discussion around the design).

Year 6 transition
It was delightful to have our Year 6 transitioning students join us. They joined in on lessons with Stage 4 (Year 7 and 8) and contributed strongly to Occupations. Positive and willing, they were very welcome and look forward to haven them full tim next year..

Year 5 joined us in the High School last Thursday. The focus of their morning was Maths and Science and we plan to follow up with a Humanities session in  a few weeks

Showcase
All families are invited to save the date of the High School end of year showcase on Thursday 23rd  November between 9 and 11 am. Students will be showcasing their work across a range of different areas and we would love to have you (families of all stages and areas of the school) there in our audience. Feel free to stay for the whole or part of a session or just pop in for a cuppa.

Curriculum news
Despite the looming end of year celebrations, students are continuing to push forward in their learning. Students are preparing for showcases with a number of opportunities to hone public speaking skills in presentations and debating. Road safety, the Freedom Rides and stencil art are also being studied. Feminist philosophy has been our focus in Stage 5 with students also preparing a written response which presents a philosophical reading of a non-philosophcal text. A number of students are exploring imaginative texts writing some insightful pieces many in response to our thematic study on Home, Memories and Belonging. We hope to share these with you in future newsletters or at showcase. 

Work experience
A reminder to Year 10 students to submit their documentation if they hope to be involved in our work experience program this year. All documentation must be finalised this week if students are to take part. If not, the expectation is that students will remain at school for the week.
