πŸ‘©β€πŸŽ€πŸ•Ί DISCO DANCING AND DIVAS! πŸ’ƒπŸ§‘β€πŸŽ€

What fun! The Kids' Council, under Mrs Rusca's tutelage, organised a fantastically fun Friday fundraiser last week, in the form of a disco.

To ensure their friends enjoyed themselves, Mrs Rusca and the Kids' Council team created a playlist that included a song of choice from everyone in the school, provided a collection of props to use in a photo booth, planned a game of limbo and a musical statues competition, as well as a whole-school macarena and conga line!

Acknowledging the way a whole-school focus on reading and writing improvement has helped students achieve their learning goals, the Kids' Council decided to dedicate funds raised to the Indigenous Literacy Foundation. πŸ–€πŸ’›β€οΈ With a small entry fee and glow sticks for sale, they raised $93!

We suspect there will be another disco on Kids' Council's wish list again next year! πŸ˜‰

πŸ§‘β€πŸ”§πŸͺ¨ THE POWER OF PLAY πŸͺ΅πŸ‘©β€πŸ”§

"Play is a vital part of our human experience. Intrinsically motivated and done for enjoyment." (Dr Justin Coulson, psychologist).

Yesterday, outdoor lunchtime play was a classic example of the quality social interaction, creative thinking and problem-solving that these experiences provide:

Teacher: "Ooooh, what's happening here!? You've developed this a lot over the past few days."

Student 1: "Well, there's a big rain coming, so we're going to see if putting plants here will help the water stay in the creeks as well as fill up the dam."

Teacher: "Tell me about that. What are you thinking?"

Student 2: "Well, actually, not just plants because I'm using moss and that doesn't have roots like plants."

Student 3: "Really? But it will still let some water through to the dam won't it?"

Student 2: "Yeah. And it will hold the creek bed strong so it doesn't cave in and wash away."

Student 4: "And the rain will help the other plants grow roots which will do that too."

The conversation went on. They talked about water flow and erosion. They talked about dirt, mud and clay. They dragged bits and pieces from The Jungle to their construction site. And the creeks and dam evolved.

And this morning, the rain came.

Recess awaits, and the engineering minds will again go to work!

πŸ‘©β€πŸŽ¨πŸŽ¨ ARTISTS IN RESIDENCE πŸŽ¨πŸ‘¨β€πŸŽ¨

You don't have to go far to find artists in Auburn, hard at work. And it's no different at APS!

This term, as a strand of The Arts, students across the school are studying Visual Arts. Aligning nicely with this, and enabling us to get a grasp of our students' prior knowledge and skills so that we could design learning programs that meet their needs, the House Challenge was a portrait competition.

While judging is complete (with winners, below), the online gallery prepared for voting was too good not to share! We hope you enjoy scrolling through the artwork of our students, here:

And for some context:

Each term, Kids' Council and teachers work together to plan a House Challenge that provides not only for all students to engage and share their many diverse and unique gifts and talents, but for our House Captains more varied and authentic leadership opportunities (traditionally limited to the Sports Day event). Term 1 this year was an outdoor construction challenge in The Jungle. Next term, the House Challenge will turn to physical prowess, coinciding with the return of our Sports Day; followed by a Masterchef cooking competition to finish the year's challenges.

Meanwhile, in The Arts, we turn to Media Arts and embark on a journey to explore the use of technologies to share a message. Think QR codes, 3D cameras, digital storytelling and Virtual Reality....how exciting!

πŸŒŸπŸ‘©β€πŸ« 40 FABULOUS YEARS! πŸ‘©β€πŸ«πŸŒŸ

Every once in a while, you encounter a real diamond. And we just so happen to be lucky enough to have one right here, on staff!

Congratulations, Mrs Prince, on 40 years of service with the Department for Education! A significant milestone by any standards; but especially in dedicating your life's work to the education and wellbeing of others, and our future. The number of students and families whose lives you have touched and influenced so significantly in that time is far beyond those who attend/ed the school or your classes.

Sue, you continue to be one of the most dedicated and committed educators, who gives so much to the students you teach, and the teachers you lead. You inspire us, each and every day.

Congratulations!

And, thankyou, from the bottom of our hearts. ❀️
