Term Three • 2017

Can Do Kids

Children can proudly look back on their achievements and quality of character in what has been a busy and eventful Term 3 for them. They have taken on many different challenges, from learning, sport events, widening horizons through electives to creative through our end of term production and lunchtime art. We look forward to seeing what they have managed to achieve in the production. We have entrusted the senior children in particular to take on a lot of the challenges themselves, with teacher support, in a very short timeframe. It has been fantastic to see so many children being Can Do Kids. [Read More...]
