What an exciting day we had today!
Today we welcomed our 2021 Kindergarten students to Dudley Public School as we started their transition to ‘big school’. Year 5 were wonderful buddies, encouraging our little learners with a variety of activities and giving them a school tour. We look forward to seeing them again in Week 6.
Outdoor Classroom Day
Tomorrow is Outdoor Classroom day and the international theme is Love the Outdoors. Learning outdoors has been shown to impact student behaviour, engagement and general wellbeing. It also teaches critical life skills such as problem-solving, teamwork and creativity. Classes will undertake some of their learning outside. Look out for photos from our Outdoor Classroom Day in the next few days.
Stage 3 have been involved in several design challenges run through NSW DoE over Term 3. Our Cool Controller team were successful in winning their competition and our two Game Changers teams will participate in a semi final on Monday. These opportunities develop creative and critical thinking, collaboration as well as organisation and persistence. Teams learnt about the value of constructive feedback when working on a project over several weeks. I would like to acknowledge the efforts of Miss McPherson, Mr Horadam and Mrs Sullivan for their guidance of students in these projects.
