Term 3 will be a busy term with Grandparents’ Day this week and Book Week in a few weeks’ time, Talent Quest for Legacy Cup, P – 2 Athletics and many other events.
The Theme for Book Week this year is “Books Light up Our World” and our Annual Book Week Parade will be held on Thursday 27 August. Start thinking about the costumes for your children as we encourage all students to dress up for this activity. It’s such a fun day for everyone – even for the staff.
At the end of Term 2 we held our Legacy Cup Competition – Big Thinkers (Prep – Year 2) and Challenge of the Minds (Years 3 – 6). It was a great competition and the students had a lot of enjoyment with some close competition. House Spirit was high and the scores changed considerably during the rounds and the winning House wasn’t decided until the very last round. The overall results were:-
Challenge of the minds (Years 3 – 6) 1st Sinai
Big Thinkers (Prep – Year 2) 1st Zion
Overall points Zion 5 points – 1st
Sinai 4 points – 2nd
Ararat 3 points – 3rd WELL DONE ZION J
This term we have the P – 2 and Years 3 – 6 Talent Quest “Time to Shine”. Please encourage your children to be practising for the auditions which will begin very soon. We often discover some interesting talent during these auditions and the finals. Auditions will begin in Week 3.
So, Term 3 promises to be another exciting term which will conclude with Student Led Conferences in the last week of school.
