Thank you to everyone who has collected and donated their plastic bottle tops for our Bottle Top Mural. We are filling many tubs in the Art Room but we still need more, so keep saving and rescuing them from landfill and our waterways!
The next exciting stage to this project is the design.
We would love as many designs as possible, from all year levels that follows the theme Beneath the Surface of the Bay.
What to think about when creating your design: What creatures do you see or know exist in and around our bay? What activities happen in our bay? What does our bay look like? What colours do you see?
Please deliver your designs to the Senior School Art Room by Friday 14th May after which Carolyn Cardinet (the artist working with us on the project) will collate to create a final design made from all of your ideas. We can’t wait to see your wonderful artworks brought to life in the mural!

Respectful Relationships is off to a wonderful start in Term 2, with our focus on positive coping strategies.
5B students Holly, Sophie and Scarlett had the following to say about the topic so far:
One way of coping when things get hard is through positive self-talk, the conversations we have in our own head. An example of this would be when you do a presentation, you could think “this isn’t the worst thing in the world,” or “I can do this!”
Kids Stalls a hit!
The sun was certainly out on Saturday for our Market and it was HUGE.
It was lovely to see so many of you whilst handing out our World Famous egg and bacon rolls!
The biggest hit of all was our Kids Market Stalls with our young philanthropists and entrepreneurs selling home-made items, second-hand goods and more.
Our Grade 2 students - Sadie, Addi and Frankie - raised over $400 for our Story Dogs through selling their very own published books and other items. Their goal was to raise $100 for Story Dogs - but they BLITZED it!
They can't wait until the next assembly to present their donation!
Well done - we are so proud of you!
