Two teams headed off to Nunawading Stadium to play the Regional level of Hooptime. The students involved tried their hardest, showing fierce determination to do their best. They had a wonderful day and demonstrated great sportsmanship.
Last week the students began their five weeks of Yoga. Jo talked to the students about the importance of breathing and allowing their body to be calm and relaxed. All students responded to the session. We are linking these sessions with work in the classroom about using calming strategies to alleviate worries. We are also discussing the importance of recognising that some worries are the same for all people and others are specific to individuals.
Thank you to all the parents and students who made an effort to dress up and support our annual Italian Day. The students worked through different activities such as Bocce, building the Tower of Pisa, waiter races and Soccer. After play they were treated to a magic show with Luigi Zucchini. All left the hall saying, “How did he do that?” The show was very clever and entertaining.
This week the Year 3/4 students were lucky enough to meet and hear from Dianne McGrath, a candidate for the Mars One Mission. Here is the direct link to her profile:
It was an amazing experience to hear from such an interesting person who is aspiring to spend the rest of her life living and doing scientific research on Mars.

This term we are talking about how we deal with worries and self- calming strategies. We will be reading “Waiting For Mum” and ” A Big Bag of Worries”. Through Art, SEL and Literacy we are sharing our worries and exploring ways to stay calm. It’s very exciting that we will be participating in 5 Yoga sessions starting on the Thursday 23rd of October!
It’s always good to share ideas about how to manage frustration and anxiety. So…
…Post to the blog your way of keeping yourself calm when things get tough. ( Invite Mum and Dad to post a response as well!)
