Year 4B Procedures

Over the last couple of weeks, the Year 4B class has been writing and creating procedures.  We have then showed and presented them in class.  We have had a very large variety of topics, from making fruit kebabs and milkshakes to folding origami cranes.  It has been very interesting and, more than often, delicious.  We have all had a great time and learnt a lot about procedural writing.  Look out for our pictures in the 'Gallery' next week.

Step Up

Step Up is in full swing.  The students have adjusted well to the time change and appear to be charging around the oval like they never have before.

 The new Super Coaches are doing a super job.  Today they added all the Walk-a-thon laps to the Step Up cards so the children will be happily surprised with their cards tomorrow.  

It is wonderful to belong to a healthy, happy and active school.  Keep active, everyone.  




Irish Dancing Finalists

Sisters, Lucy (Year 6) and Heather (Year 5), are on their way to the Irish Dancing National Championships to be held in Canberra in October.  The girls have been dancing for eight years and this is their third national competition.  They will perform two dances. They have also qualified for the Irish Dancing World Championships in April, 2015.   We are super proud of you both.  Good luck, girls. 

T.O.M Preparation

Tournament of Minds has kicked off with the four teams being given their challenges last week.  They are preparing for the Regional Final on Saturday, 30th August.  They have been busy bees this week, meeting at lunchtimes and after school to address the components presented in their challenges.  All four teams are very enthusiastic, organised and collaborating well with each other.  We couldn't be more proud of them and wish them well in their preparation.

Cross Country

On Wednesday 23rd July, 2014 we took our best team of long distance runners to complete in the Interschool Cross Country Carnival at Alderbury Reserve, Floreat.    There were 13 Catholic schools competing for the shield.  Our team members ran their little hearts out and were exceptionally behaved for their teachers.  Heather Burke from Year Five placed first in her year group.  Well done, Heather.  Overall, the boys placed second and the girls placed sixth.  Our school placed fourth in the competition.  We send a big thank you to Mr Kenworthy for preparing the team and also show our appreciation for Miss Tyza and Mr Brown who coached on the day.   Go, OLG.
