Powerpoint Presentations


After weeks of hard work, our 5th & 6th class students got the opportunity to showcase Powerpoint Presentations to the class! A huge amount of hard work went into these projects, and the end product was absolutely magnificent! Everybody should be extremely proud of what they achieved and we look forward to more wonderful presentations to come!

Our overall top three finishers in the end were Holly, Kevin and Adam! Well done to you all and congratulations!

Star of the Week


The task of choosing Star of the Week this week in the 5th & 6th class room was a difficult one! This week’s theme for Star of the Week was, ‘ Being a bookworm’. Our current crop of students in 5th & 6th are always great to get stuck into some silent reading whenever they get a chance. In the end,it was decided that the whole class group would receive the Star of the Week prize for such a great class effort in reading, not just this week but all the time! Well done to all in 5th & 6th and keep it up!
