Our Student Representative Council have brought Marty’s Garden back to life. As a part of the SRC initiative, our students have helped rebuild our school vegetable garden.
We received an incredible donation of butterfly attracting plants, vegetables, herbs, potting mix and even a mandarin tree from Bunnings Warehouse Marion after Mrs. Howard-Jones' Year 6 class wrote persuasive letters seeking their help. Sally from Bunnings Warehouse came to deliver all the donations to 6RH on Wednesday afternoon. The students were all over joyed to receive them and see their persuasive language was successful!
Thankfully, the skies cleared ahead of the opening of the Lacrosse Carnival allowing participating schools and students to make the most of the Carnival. Students used this Carnival as a culmination of our Year 5/6 Physical Education unit focused on invasion and Lacrosse.
Year 3 students went on an excursion to the Adelaide Zoo to support their learning in Science this term of ‘Living Things’. Students participated in education sessions, where they learnt about the life cycles of various animals, their prey and predators as well as their habitats. In these sessions, students had the opportunity to create a habitat for a green tree frog, including all things the animal would need to survive.
Year 2 students went on an excursion to the Adelaide Botanical Gardens as part of their HASS learning. This excursion gave the students an opportunity to further their understanding of the Indigenous Australian culture and their deep connection to the land.
The students had a wonderful day exploring the many plants in the gardens and finding out interesting facts about everyday plants that they did not know.
Congratulations (again) to Tyson who continued his success in SA Long Orienteering Championship over the weekend by placing First in his age group!
The Championship was held at Twigham about 40km north of Burra in the Southern Flinders Ranges. With terrain and a course that was quite challenging we congratulate you Tyson in your how he performed and your dedication to the sport.
It was early on a freezing cold Wednesday morning but the excitement of 75 Year 4 students was palpable. After having an earlier camp cancelled, we were fortunate enough to head to Illawonga for two days and a night.
For many students, this was their first night away from home and they are to be applauded for their bravery. Needless to say, not a lot of sleep was had. But hopefully the memories will last well beyond any tiredness. The children brought a fantastic attitude to camp, and as a result had a great time!
On Monday, 6 June the Year 6 students had the wonderful opportunity to visit the Migration Museum, Centre of Democracy, Art Gallery of SA and the Adelaide Central Markets.
This excursion enabled students to further develop their learning in Australian Migration History and the links we share with Asia in Geography.
The students had a wonderful day exploring our rich Australian culture and discussing the many exhibition pieces and the impacts they have had on our country. One of the highlights of the day was students being able to purchase their lunch from the Adelaide Central Markets focusing on 'Asian cuisine.’
Our Year 6 students had a day of Faith, friends and fun as they participated in Day 1 of the (2022) “Journey to Emmaus” Retreat Day Program at Christ the King School with students from McAuley, Stella Maris, St Bernadette’s and Christ the King.
It was with great joy we welcomed back Father Michael for our first Whole School Mass for 2022.
It was wonderful to have Father Michael back in the school, and our community was able to recognise his Silver Jubilee, the 25th Anniversary of his Priesthood with flowers and a gift. We look forward to more community gatherings like this throughout this year.
For the first time in the schools 36-year history, we entered a Knockout Girls AFLW team. We are incredibly proud of the girls who attended several trainings in the rain and unfavourable conditions. Our girls absolutely loved the opportunity to participate in Round One, wearing the traditional away white guernesy.
