European Day of Languages

Today the school celebrated the European Day of Languages. Yr 6 students participated in the event; they acted a playlet where they used the words ‘good morning’ in the different languages. The students have already been exposed to German through the FLAP (Foreign Language Awareness Programme). They will also be having an introduction to the French Language in the coming term.

Yr 1 – Outing to Popeye Village

Yesterday year 1 students went to Popeye Village. The outing was related to games and play. Play is essential for a child’s emotional, social and physical development. Through play children work out who they are and how the world around them works: Play helps children to develop confidence and self-esteem. Here are some photos of the event:
