Happy Father’s Day to all our Dads! On Thursday another fabulous Father’s Day Stall at was held at St Robert’s. A huge thank you to our many Mother’s who helped with everything. We hope all our Dads have a wonderful day and enjoy the small gift your child chose for you at the stall (and the hugs that go with it). Here are our two Foundation classes visiting the Father’s Day Stall – they were very, very excited!
iPad Information Sessions The first session was run by the students of Year 4 this afternoon. The children gave parents a great insight into the way they use their iPads in the classroom and parents were also able to ask lots of questions of both the students and the teachers in the room. There will be 3 more sessions this week – Tues 9.10am, Thurs 2.15pm and Friday 9.10am.
It’sBook Week! Teachers and students have been busy reading and enjoying the short-listed books for 2016, and if you’re walking around the school make sure you check out all the fantastic class displays. The winners of theBooks of the Yearhave been announced by the CBCA but I bet each class had their own favourite. A reminder also to parents and children that one of the highlights of the year – our fabulous Book Parade – will be held on Friday 26th August.
During the last two days, our four Year 5/6 classes have visited Deakin University to ‘fine-tune’ some aspects of their ‘Fast Cars in Schools Projects’. We moved through three rotations – Physics Lab where students tried some aerodynamics and friction experiments; Bio Lab where we tested our own cars’ reaction times with iPads; and the Test Track where we trialled our fast cars and learned where we needed to make modifications.
A highlight of our visit was the HighVoltageLabRoom where we experienced an amazing version of the Star Wars soundtrack synchronised with flashes of lightning.
