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!

This is the 2nd time our Principal for a dayschool has participated in Principal for the Day. It is an excellent way to highlight the importance of student voice and student leadership within our school.

Principal Tyson was already well known to many of the students at our school because of his friendly outgoing personality so of course he was a popular choice when elected.

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.

A Special Visitor

Mayor3Recently the Mayor for our Community attended our SRC meeting. He told us that it is important to have a go at leadership opportunities especially at a young age as this helps develop the skills and confidence to become even better leaders in the future.

The Mayor explained that you can learn how to become a leader and grow into the position by being involved. He emphasized this by telling us that when he first had to give public speeches he would write out the whole speech word for word. Over time and with practice he learnt how to use cue cards with the main points when giving talks. Now he speaks naturally and with confidence without cue cards at major events.

The students asked the Mayor many questions about leadership and his role on the Council. Did you know that the Mayor acts as the chair person at the council meetings? At our SRC meetings students take turns at chairing the meeting. The chair person introduces the topics for discussion and helps the meeting to run smoothly.

It is important for students at our school to have a voice and make contributions to decision making in our school and community. The Mayor was impressed with what the students knew about their local community and they shared their thoughts and ideas about what could be improved.

We would like to thank the Mayor for coming to our school and we look forward to our continued involvement in our local community.

SRC Orientation Day 2015

The Student Representative CouncilIMG_3218 met for the first time in 2015 on Monday 23rd February.

We began at 8:30am with a breakfast in our school hall. We had pancakes, cereal, yogurt, toast and fruit salad. “Yummy!”

During the IMG_3225day the students played “getting to know you games” and “cooperative games.” Through this process the members developed a bond of trust and respect for each other.

Students enjoyed the Web of Names IMG_3230activity. They passed a ball of string to another SRC member and said their name. Each person held onto their length of string as the ballwas passed around. This created a web which symbolized the bonds we were forming as a group.

We also established our meeting protocols and learnt about the roles and process that we follow for our weekly meetings.

IMG_3229The SRC gathered some ideas from other students throughout the school and began to plan their first activity.

We are planning a GREAT RACE with an Easter focus.

We hope you will enjoy our first event for 2015!
