Last Wednesday’s at school all students began a four-week badminton coaching program. The school acquired an annual grant from Sporting Schools to fund the coaching sessions, so the program is free to families. Each class will participate in 40-minute sessions for the remaining three Wednesdays this term. The sessions are led by a qualified badminton coach and included in the program is equipment for the school to allow us to continue playing badminton in the future. Badminton was chosen to allow students to participate in a racquet sport providing a great opportunity to improve their movement skills as well as their hand eye coordination. As a result of this, class sport will not take place for the rest of this term. Please have your child wear their House Shirt on Wednesday instead.
Home Reading Awards
Home Reading is one of the most important homework activities. Research shows that regular home reading with your child will help in all learning areas of school, such as comprehension, vocabulary development, spelling and writing. To encourage home reading with K-2 students they have been keeping a reading log and receiving stickers at different milestones. When they have read 100 times at home they receive a special reading certificate. This certificate is equivalent to a bronze award. We are beginning to have some students reach this great accomplishment. At the assembly on Monday led by the Koalas these students will be receiving their reading awards:
Koalas: Thidarat, Benjamin, Oliver G, Ashima, Aaron, Toby, Frankie M, Reece, Evelyn
A really big congratulations to sisters Hannah and Mika from year 1 and 6 respectively for entering and winning awards in the Inner West Council Book Week drawing and writing competition. They will be receiving their awards in the amazing new Marrickville Library on Thursday this week. Once again, well done Mika and Hannah. You have to be in it to win it!
