Wow! What a busy last two weeks of term!
All the Preps have impressed us with their persistence and great attitudes while making excellent progress in just two intense weeks of swimming. We finished with a fun day on Thursday and the students had a blast enjoying inflatables, a rain cloud and making a splash with a few jumping bombs. The Preps really need to be congratulated on their amazing effort over the two weeks, showing a great attitude and willingness to learn and be safe around water. The teachers at Just Swim raved about the students from Laburnum. A big thank you to all our wonderful parents who helped each day.
Last Friday gave us a chance to relax as it was the JSC Pyjama Day. It was wonderful to see so many Preps taking part in their PJs, dressing gowns, slippers and onesies. Thank you everyone for your gold coin donations, altogether we raised over $800 for the Royal Children’s Hospital.
We have also been busy designing our own toys as the conclusion to our Science and Design and Technology units. Just look at these amazing creations!
“Hot Pies! Cold Drinks! Prep Superstar Footballers!” It was fantastic see the Preps dress in their team colours for their first Laburnum Footy Day! The Brown and Gold appeared to be the most popular colour amongst the crowd! The school was even lucky enough to have the Melbourne superstar Christian Petracca come and speak. Fun FACT, our very own on Kate Spillane was Christian’s Under 8 Basketball coach. So she basically taught him everything he knows. All of the Preps sung and danced to each theme song and loved having a kick before school, at recess and after school. I am almost certain that there are a few future premiership captains amongst the ranks.
As we lead into the Term 3 holidays the Prep Teachers would like to wish all the students and their families a sensational two week holiday. Term 3 has had some many wonderful highlights including 100 Days of Prep, Wacky Wednesday, Book Week, Pyjama Day, Swimming and outstanding efforts in all of our learning focuses. Term 4 is set to be a busy, productive and amazing finish to an already outstanding year.
