This week we celebrated harmony day working on how we are all unique and valued members of our school. Inclusion & diversity was the key message of "Everyone belongs."
During STEM this week our grade 2/3's have been learning about how to lift heavy things using a pulley system. The designs created were put to the test in front of the class. Each group needed to consider how best to get their loaded cup to the top of the well.
Our buddies work has seen the planting of our seedlings as part of our Healthy Me study. We hope to see the results harvested from the garden early next term. Working together each Friday afternoon is a highlight of the buddies program here at Simpson PS.
Next week's menu includes: warm milo, stewed apples and our regular toast and cereal options. Parent helpers most welcome. Please check with Tabatha that your WWCC is on file.
DET has asked schools to ensure families who were loaned ICT devices during lock down have them permanently available. With this in mind I would ask any families who received school i-pads/macbooks to please pop in and fill out a quick acceptance agreement so that the device is permanently yours.
Each week we focus on behaviours that fit our C.A.R.E. values to give out our awards. Congratulations to Bianca, Thomas, Avannah, Mia and Ted who all displayed consideration in their classrooms this week. Thinking about what others need to help with their learning is an awesome skill to have.
