Year 4


Welcome Back to Term 3
We hope you all enjoyed seeing some of the work your child is proud of during the student-led parent teacher interviews.  It was great to see how well students did in leading these conferences!  Year 4CL students have already settled back into the school routine for Term 3.  We have welcomed two new class members, ‘Charlie and Sultana’ (our Spiny Leaf Insects) and most students are excited about having the opportunity to care for them and take them home for a weekend visit.  Some of the exciting events we will be participating in this Term are the Athletics Carnival, the Footsteps Dance Program and our campat Allambee Camp!!
