School photos – Catch up day

Midland Photography will be returning to North Morley on Thursday 15 June for a photo catch up session. Those students that were away on photo day will have the opportunity to have their individual or sibling photo taken during this time.

From the Science Lab

In Earth and Space Science the Year 5 students have been learning about the Solar System. We were fortunate to have our School Scientist Dr Karen visit us to talk about her job as an astrophysicist. To conclude the session the students completed an activity to scale the Solar System on a piece of paper as long as their arm. The students thoroughly enjoyed Dr Karen’s visit. This is what some of them had to say:

” I liked how she showed us how far away everything is.”

 “I enjoyed the videos and the scale the universe activity.” 

“I was interesting how long the universe is, and it was fun doing the scale mapping.” 

“It was exciting to see the different ways they look at the universe e.g. x-rays and ultraviolet rays.”

Culture Café

We were so excited to see so many families come together for our inaugural Culture Café. Stories were shared and new friendships were made. The Culture Café is an opportunity for families to come together and share their culture so we can learn and grow together as a community. We look forward to seeing you at the next one!

Pokémon Preview Sessions

This is proving to be a very popular way to spend Friday recess!

Italian Schools Competition

A big congratulations to Year 5 Bella who received a “highly commended” prize and trophy for her year level in the competition.

Bella, her family and myself attended the official presentation on Saturday 3 June at the Italo Welfare and Cultural Centre. 

It was a great afternoon where we saw works of entrants across 25 schools that participated in all year levels on display. Work that was surely of a very high standard, with lots of effort and creativity put into the students’ work.

Also I’d like to congratulate Joshua Year 6, for his outstanding work recognised by the judges. MAGNIFICO!

Thanks to all students who took on board this great community competition. Grazie!
