The Candyland Disco 2017

The Student Representative Council is organising a School Disco with a CANDYLAND theme.

You can dress of wear an item related to the theme. Think of lollipops, candy-cane, your favorite chocolates and sweets. You may even get an idea by thinking of Willy Wonka  from Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate factory.

There is a show-bag for each student and lots of competitions and games. There will be some prizes for the best dressed students.

Get a dance crew of 4 organised for the dance battle where you can impress the crowd with your amazing moves and compete for prizes.

Use the audio file  below to practise with your friends.

Good luck it will be a fantastic night.

Crazy Hair Day

hair1

This term we had Crazy Hair Day. The reason for this was because everyone wanted to do an activity for the whole school and for cancer research. Everyone had to bring a gold coin donation. People came to school with some wonderful, weird and crazy hairstyles.

 

We had a treasure hunt where peoplehair2 had to go looking for clues to find the mystery person from a selection of photos of children with unusual hairstyles. The first two people to identify the mystery person won a prize. Prizes were also awarded to students with creative hairstyles.

At the end of the day everyone had a great time being at school with their crazy hairstyles and we raised $600 for Peter Maccallum Cancer Centre as well!

 

Lego Master Builders Competition

This September the Student Representative Council organised a school wide Master Builders Lego Competition. Each class was provided with sets of Lego and students worked in pairs to design many amazing and very creative pieces.


Students worked together to build homes, robots, vehicles and some weird and wonderful machines. All winners from each of our classrooms were photographed.

The SRC judged a winner from each level and these students received a Lego Basics set as their prize.

Congratulations SRC for another successful and fun-filled activity!

What did you like the most about the Lego competition?

Explain why you might like to do this again next year?

The Great Easter Key Hunt

Have you very watched the Amazing Race on television?
Well we had our very own amazing race as an Easter activity here at school!!

Students worked in teams of 4 and had to complete challenging activities to receive a clue.

The five activities wereSlide4

  • Easter Bunny Dress Up
  • Holy Week Jigsaw Puzzle Challenge
  • Palm Sunday Dramatization
  • Egg and Spoon Obstacle Course
  • Pull the Egg out of the Sticky Goo

Once the teams had all five clues they assembled the words to create an Easter message, “Alleluia, Jesus is Risen, Alleluia. ”

After this they took a key and tried to open the prize box.
When the key failed to fit the lock the team ran back to the key table and tried another.

And what is in the prize box?
Easter eggs of course!

The SRC enjoyed organizing this special event.

Lunchtime Activity Day for Year 4 Students

The SRC is planning to run some lunchtime activities and competitions in our school hall for the Year 4 students.

SRC

They are targeting these children because they missed out on the disco and because they might be encouraged to join the SRC in 2015!

The SRC is planning a number of activities that the Grade 4 students will rotate through. They are looking at the 2013 student survey to work out what type of activities might be popular.

They thought the following type of activities might have you motivated and excited…..

  • cooking / food making
  • art competition
  • sport/physical activity
  • dance/music competition
  • technology challenge

What do you think of these ideas?

Are there any other activities you would like to have included?

 

Eastertastic Egg-ar-art Competition April 3rd

The Eastertastic Egg-ar-art Competition was a huge success! The students were extremely creative in their designs. They had 15 minutes to produce their ‘egg-art’ masterpieces and coped well with the pressure of the competition.
The SRC did an amazing job planning the event, decorating the hall with balloons and streamers and in organising a selection of music that had the students dancing on their way to the tables. It was a difficult decision selecting the finalists and winners. Many amazing egg designs missed out on being chosen. However everyone had a great time. The event ran smoothly and there were lots of happy, smiling faces!
Five hundred dollars was raised and this will be given to the Royal Children’s Hospital during the Good Friday Appeal.
Well done SRC we can’t wait to see what you will be organising next!
