Our very own Australian Girls Choir member
A big congratulations to Grace Pacurariu (Yr 4) for being selected into the Australian Girls Choir.
Grace has had a passion for music and singing since she was a little girl! Grace loved to sing and when she turned 4 years old, she started singing in church with her father. She enjoyed this so much her parents decided to take her to professional singing lessons and she started with ‘Musical Creators’ and also joined the Parklands Christian College choir. Her passion and joy for music and people led her to decide to apply for a place in the Australian Girls Choir.
We are so happy and proud that she obtained a position in the Australian Girls Choir and know she will represent her parents and Parklands Christian School with pride – congratulations Grace!
Prep F has had a funtastic start to the year! We have been learning our numbers 0-10 and even used the numbers on the fence on the oval to engage our number recognition. Our hands on learning of our letters and sounds each day has us exploring with natural materials such as leaves for Ll and using household materials such as shaving foam! One of our favourites is playdough which we use nearly everyday to help with strengthening our hand muscles with exercises before writing and even use it to practice our numerals. We love learning and are having loads of fun too!

Year One has had a busy few weeks since swimming began in week 3!
We are all working well together and have really been enjoying our learning as a whole class, in small groups and as individuals!
We’ve also been concentrating on sentence writing and are getting better at remembering our finger spaces. In Math we have been concentrating on numbers to 100 and enjoyed learning about addition. Math games are always a favourite!
Looking forward to sharing more about Term 1 next month!

Learning, laughing and living have all been in abundance in the Grade Two classrooms! The students have been engaging with a diverse range of activities while focusing their studies on Native Australian Animals, life cycles and the changes in objects from past to present. Our Maths studies have been a revision of grade 1 concepts as well as rich enquiry tasks developing their problem solving skills. This term the students have been learning and applying their learning of google slides. Whilst doing so they have also been learning about online safety and how best to protect themselves and others while online. Our half way mark was capped off with a fabulous excursion to the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary where the students consolidated their learning while interacting with Australia’s unique fauna.
This month Year 6 students have been learning all things leadership. Our students have enjoyed leadership challenges and character building teamwork in our camp at Burleigh Heads CYC. The students participated in kayaking, tubing, raft building and lots of hiking. Once we returned to school the students were selected for their leadership roles in the Primary School. We’d like to congratulate all recipients of a badge position on their new responsibilities. This year is building up to be a great year of growth and development for our all our Year 6 team.
