Year 4 St Helena Island

Last Friday morning, we loaded onto the bus, our group of convict substitutes to transport them to St Helena Island in Moreton Bay. Mrs Klinge had been busy allocating them all a number so that they could experience the way that prisoners were known on the island. Although we were able to travel using modern transport, the reality of the isolation, lack of facilities and the workload expected of the prisoners were clearly demonstrated during the excursion. The children witnessed an assimilated flogging of a prisoner and one of the students was involved in the flogging using the Cat 'O' Nine tails. Thank you to all those who joined us on our real-life adventure.

Chinese Students Visit Year 3

Last Wednesday and Thursday Year 3 had the pleasure of hosting students from China. The Year 3 students enjoyed working with the Chinese students and helped them understand English in relation to calendars. They also managed to learn a few basic Chinese words. Many Year 3 students also relished having lunch and playing with their new found friends. It was a wonderful experience for all!

Year 5 back to school

It has been a great start to 2018 with Year 5 students settling back into school routines demonstrating pleasing organisation and time management skills. We are enjoying our agile learning environment which has lots of colour and amazing furniture to support our learning journey. Students have also enjoyed their swimming at the Caboolture Pool with plenty of fun had by all. Using laptops is a priority this term in preparation for our Naplan next term. We are looking forward to an "inspiring" year!

Year 6 Leadership Day

A positive, supportive and fun-filled atmosphere was how the Year 6 students spent Monday 29 January with the leaders from Lutheran Youth of Queensland as part two of their leadership journey. There were many exciting and challenging activities which enabled the students to work collaboratively to solve various problems throughout the day. It was a day to make the students aware of themselves as well as those around them. It has definitely been a day of encouragement to help the students become the best possible leaders in 2018 at St Paul's.
