Today many kids from Year 3/4 participated in the District Cross Country competition. There were 5 schools competing and HWPS came fourth. Everyone ran so well and most completed the race with a sprint across the finishing line. Well done, L3!! I was very impressed with your running, encouragement and enthusiasm! (Olivia)
Next week each class will develop an environmental pledge (promise) in celebration of World Environment Day (Wednesday, 5th June).
Each class will work at trying to stick to their pledge (promise) all week.
What could you pledge to do at home on an environmental level or on an individual level to help our precious environment?
What an exciting Elimination Final! Ogres v Monsters –
The Monsters were tireless in their encouraging and the Ogres worked so close as a team when they fielding.
Fin received the highest amount of runs on 11 runs!!! Our second biggest hitters were, Julian, Amy Se. Henry and Tom (34O). Fin scored the highest amount across all games, even the Grand Final!
I wonder which class will win next time?!
The M&M’s lead the first innnings by 18 points. Lightning fought back, unfortunately they diidn’t win.
Congratulations to the M&M’s who won by 12 points (102 v 90)

rock artThe kids have commenced work on their new unit, ‘When Plants Attack’ to tie into their Inquiry unit of life cycles of plants and animals. We will imagine what man-eating plants look like and illustrate them in oil pastel. Stay posted to see our exciting results…beware the plants are watching you!!!!
On Friday, the Ogres and Octopussies played each other in a game of Rapid Fire. It was a tight match, infact, it was a DRAW at 67 points!!!
Unfortunately, the Ogres could have won, except they lost many points for moving before the hitter ran! Perhaps the Ogres will win next week?
There was also a terrible accident…a misphap between a person and a dog, who shall remain nameless! 🙂
Congratulations, Year 3s! You’ve worked so hard this week! Well done! 🙂
Our year 3/4 students have just completed a 5 week dance program with visiting teacher Georgia Lombard. During these sessions the students explored beat and rhythm and invented movements to music. The students created their own dances around the theme of Australian Animals and performed these in front of their teachers and classmates on Monday. It was terrific to see our students working together performing their original dances.
