  1. Change Expo

    AMpMon, 15 Sep 2014 07:57:29 -040057Monday 14, 2009 by Grade56neighbourhood blog

    Dear 5/6 Families,

    We would like to invite you to our Change Expo. This Expo will present the ideas, influences and creations the students have developed during their investigation into,

    “What drives and motivates change?”

    Some students have worked on ‘pop-ups’, investigating what it means to affect change in the attitudes, behaviours and understandings of others. Another group of students have investigated people who have made change through their significant contributions to society. The final group have explored various changes that have occurred in society through invention, shifting paradigms and adaptation.

    The Expo is being held in the 5/6 neighbourhood on Thursday 18th of September and will be open to the parents anytime between 5-6pm.

    It is encouraged that all students attend the Expo at this time, to present their learning to the parent community. The doors will be open at 4:50 for students to come in and prepare for their presentations.

    We apologise for the late notice of this invitation, however we look forward to seeing you there!

    ~  5/6 Team

    (Robert, Tash, Anna, Tim & Kate and all of the 5/6 students)

  3. The Great Book Swap

    Book Swap


    To help raise funds for the Indigenous Literacy Foundation to buy books for remote indigenous communities who don’t have access to books we’re holding a Great Big Book Swap. It also means we all get to have a new book!!!
    There are schools involved across Australia and the target is $100,000 to buy 10,000 books.
    If every child can please bring a book to school on Weds Sept 17 that they love but no longer want and a gold coin donation, then they can be part of the book swap. By donating a gold coin, they can then swap their book for a new book that someone else has donated.
    They just need to bring their books to the gym before school starts on Weds Sept. 17 and the gym will turn into a huge book swapping bookshop at lunch time. 
    Hopefully everyone will be involved so we can all raise money for a very important cause and have a terrific new book to take home. Check out the website for more information:
