2020 Christmas Concert

2020 Christmas Concert

Another successful, entertaining performance from all students. Well done staff and students on the fabulous all singing, all dancing Christmas extravaganza. Another successful end of year assembly. It was great to be able to host a larger group of parents on site now that we are moving into less rigid, restricted procedures.

The Big Day Out at Woodman Point Recreation Camp was a huge success. Students were well behaved and had great fun with the archery and water activities. Thanks to the P&C and Mrs Griffiths for funding the excursion and provision of the amazing lunch. Such a wonderful memory of the last week of Primary School.

 

Thank You Assembly and Volunteers Morning Tea

Thank You Assembly and Volunteers Morning Tea

On Friday 4th December we showed our appreciation for all of the volunteers that work with us to make our school a wonderful learning environment. We thanked our Cultural Committee, Board members, P&C, Grounds Committee and all of the other wonderful helpers that give their time to help our students achieve their very best.

The assembly was also be a chance for the students to personally thank Sheila for the many years running the Community Bingo in the Hall – we are sad to see her go but are so grateful for all of her fundraising efforts and the benefits to our school and students have been immeasurable.

EC2 Assembly

EC2 Assembly

Our students from EC2 gave an amazing performance at the assembly held on 20 November where they performed 2 songs.  The first was a wonderful rendition of “We are Australian”, with the addition of the Auslan Language which they had been learning over the previous few weeks.  The 2nd song was a Wiggles song, “Stop at the Lights”.

 

Dolphin Watch Excursion

Dolphin Watch Excursion

On Thursday 19th November, the Year 2-6 students travelled to Matilda Bay to take part in the Junior Dolphin Watch excursion. The students conducted a scavenger hunt of the river and surrounding area to determine what types of activities were conducted in the area and what litter had been left behind. They then tested the pH, temperature and saltiness of tap water and river water and compared the two. Later they labelled a diagram of a river dolphin and tried to identify some of the local dolphins by their dorsal fins.

 

Fire Fighter visit to EC1

Fire Fighter visit to EC1

Today our kindergarten class was treated to a special visit from the Success Fire Fighting branch.

As part of our community helpers program this term, this visit was a huge hit.

Four fire fighters showed the class all of their safety equipment, their radio communications and a full tour of the fire truck. Each student was able to have a turn of the fire hose and received a special stamp.

The fire fighters radioed to base and the students got to hear a special message as well as the lights and sirens show.

A wonderful morning was had by all and the staff and students would like to thank the fire fighters for taking the time to speak to us today.

Community Helper Police Service Visit

Community Helper Police Service Visit

The kindergarten children have been very fortunate to have Police Officer Sam And Police Officer Chloe from the Cockburn Police station visit us today.

We learned what the role of the police officers in our community involves, how to contact them in an emergency and why they are so important for the community.

We then got to make our own hats and use the police stickers to turn each student into a junior officer.

The officers then showed us all their equipment, turned on their radios and took us out to see the vehicle. All students got to sit in the front seat and have their picture taken. We even got to watch the lights and sirens.

Spearwood kindergarten EC1 would love to thank Officer Sam and Officer Chloe for coming in today.

 

St John Ambulance Service Visit

St John Ambulance Service Visit

The kindergarten students at Spearwood Primary have been fortunate to have a visit from the St John Ambulance service today.

As part of our community helpers program this term, the students were able to see first hand how important the ambulance service is. We all listened to Blade give her talk about when to call an ambulance and what an emergency is. We then got to go for a climb up inside the ambulance, test out the chairs and the bed and have a go at some of the equipment. At the end we were treated to a lights and sirens demonstration and all the students were gifted a sticker.

We would love to thank Blade from the St John Ambulance service for taking time to show us her ambulance today.

A visit from Ranger Kylie

A visit from Ranger Kylie

This term as part of our kindergarten program, we are looking at ways in which people in our community can help us.

We have been very fortunate to have the City of Cockburn ranger services come to class and have a talk with our students.

Ranger Kylie brought all her ranger equipment and demonstrated how she catches snakes, captures dogs and we even got to watch her talk to base with her walkie talkie. We then followed her out to her ranger vehicle and got to see inside.

The kindergarten students had lots of wonderful questions and enjoyed the whole morning. Ranger Kylie even gifted each student a special teddy bear to take home.

Thanks to the City of Cockburn for sending Ranger Kylie to our school!
