Basketball

On Friday Ben, Luke & Riley ran a really tight basketball clinic for Middle S. They had three rotations of drills that targeted specific skills required to play basketball in a team, followed by a short game of half court (the class was split into 4 teams).

Grandparents

Yesterday, we continued to celebrate the 50th anniversary of our school, with a Mass, sausage sizzle and tree planting. We also invited all our grandparents to join us in our classroom and share our learning! So many of them joined us on this special day, where we were blessed with glorious weather! Here's a slideshow Middle S created that shows us with our grandparents

Some history of our school

 



In 1985 John Fulton moved next door to our school. John grew up with 9 siblings and his mum and dad. He takes care of our school doing important jobs such as mowing the grass or taking care of the office.
When John grew up he had 40 kids in his class.
His family used to go to church in the school hall because they didn't have the church to go to. John got the free bus to church with his family.
When he moved here he said that the shops were still here.
Also, John said that there used to be horses in the area, as he once found a horseshoe in his backyard (he brought it along to show us). There were also lemon trees and black berries.
