Friday June 10

The event we had all been waiting for all year, the Grade One sleepover, was a huge success! The children were excellent self managers and set up their beds in the classroom all on their own! They also managed all of their belongings and were very responsible for brushing their own teeth and hair. Well done, Grade Ones! The evening started off with a walk around the school in the dark with our torches, followed by a 'Story Under the Stars' on the roof of the Infant School. The Grade One teachers performed a favourite story by Julia Donaldson called 'Room on the Broom'. Then it was back to the classroom for pajamas, popcorn ann the movie 'Minions'. Miraculously, all the children were asleep by 10:15 and slept through the night until 6:00! In the morning, after packing up and getting changed, we all headed to the canteen for a pancake breakfast. This was followed by a 'Jump Jam' session led by Mr. Hamish Betts. Ms Mary and I were so proud of all the children in Grade One LJe for showing resilience, independence and for being such good friends to each other!

Another successful event we had this week was the Grade One Swim Gala. All the children participated with enthusiasm and good sportsmanship. Thank you to our parent volunteers, especially Lola and Matt, who spent the entire time in the water making sure the children were going in the right direction! Please enjoy the swim gala video below.
