Year 6 WACKI Film

In association with our Community of Schools, Year 6 has completed filming for the WACKI (Warrawong and Community Kids Images) Film Festival.

Our film was designed, filmed and edited by the students of Year 6 and will premiere at the festival which starts at 6PM Wednesday 23 November at the Gala Cinema in Warrawong. Parents and Year 6 are all invited to this event and we would love to have as many parents and Year 6 students as possible. Year 6 did a fantastic job and are eager to show off their film. Tickets are $1 and combos (Popcorn, Drink and Lollypop) are $5. Tickets can be purchased from Mrs Nicastri between now and Wednesday.

Australian Mathematics Competition Awards

Last term, 19 students in Years 3-6 were nominated by their teachers to participate in the Australian Mathematics Competition.

Students were up against the best young mathematicians in the country and were tested on their mathematical knowledge and problem solving abilities. It was a tough test and we're very excited to announce that some of our students were awarded distinctions (top 20% of their year and region) and credits (top 55% of their year and region) for their efforts. Those students are listed below: Peyton Jujhara (Y3) - Distinction Crissa-Mia Kennedy (Y3) - Credit Chloe Bruce (Y3) - Credit Riley Da Costa (Y4) - Credit All of the students who participated should be exceptionally proud of what they achieved. Congratulations!

Thanks to the many families who have already sold and returned raffle tickets for the annual P&C raffle. It has been fabulous to see the support from our fantastic Lake Heights community.  Don't forget that each classroom has a basket for collecting non-perishable items to be included in the raffle. Chocolates, candles, gift packs and other small gifts would all be appreciated.
