On the Thursday the 27th of July the Junior School had their annual Athletics Carnival. We all had a wonderful time cheering on our house, racing and watching everyone do their personal best! Most of us participated in the 100m race and the 200m race. Some girls who really enjoy running chose to race in the 800m races and the 1500m races. Also some people did the field event eg. High Jump, Long Jump, shot put and discus! We are all thankful for Mrs B and all the teachers who helped plan the day.
In term 2, the year 6 leaders have been helping other girls. Girls in k-6 come together and enhance their learning and friendship skills in peer support.
Creativity is one of the most important highlights of peer support. We complete many fun activities that link to this topic. This is a wonderful opportunity for us to communicate with our peers.
One of the things we created was a hover-ball puffer which was an exciting and enjoyable project each of us made.
Peer Support was a pleasure to SOAR as creative Rosie girls!

Today in peer support we created a scientific push using force, we did this with air. These are the steps our groups did. First we decorated a plane oval shape of paper. Second cut to the middle of the oval. Third swirl the paper into a hat shape. Fourth sticky tape the the hat shape. Fifth get a straw and sticky tape it to the hat. Sixth scrunch up some tin foil. Last put the ball in the hat and blow. It should go up and out of the circle.
In Healthy Harold we learnt about drugs and if they are good for you or not. We learned about the drugs in cigarettes and how you can get addicted to them and how it‘s very hard to stop smoking because of the nicotine. Libby split use into groups and we had to complete a puzzle in a certain amount of time. Year 4 also played a fun game when there was a brain and angel, the angel would say ow and we were all veins and we had to send a message to the brain.
I think we can all say we had such a fun time and learnt so much about how not to take drugs.
