Primary Trashion Show 2015

September 14, 2015

Hannah Bennett, our Primary Principal, writes: “This week I have seen for myself that Trashion really is the new fashion. In Primary we have been busy designing and making our costumes for the house fashion show. Each house has chosen its own theme and every child has made their own, very fashionable, costumes out of recyclable material. It has been great to see children working together across year groups. I am particularly impressed with our Year 5 and 6 children who have been supporting their younger peers to make sure that everyone has a unique costume ready for the house competition. Another highlight of the week, for me, has been seeing the range of ELOs (Extended Learning Opportunities) that our students have chosen to complete. In one year group alone, I have seen homemade videos, wolf themed cakes, puppet shows, Powerpoints, creative writing and shopping list addition. I am amazed at the imaginative ways children have found to pursue their own interests and build on what they are learning about at school! I was also impressed when I took a trip to the Early Years campus for our parent workshop. The coffee morning was so positive, it was the perfect way to start my day. We also got some great ideas, such as ‘meet the teacher’ coffee mornings, that we have already started planning into our term dates. My week finished in the Year 4 classrooms where I was lucky to stumble upon a chocolate tasting session that the children were completing, to build their vocabulary, as part of their ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ topic. A delicious end to an exciting week.”
