YOU CAN DO IT Program

The You Can Do It program focuses on developing the full potential of children of all ages, to become highly successful and happy people. By delivering this well-being program in our school we aim to develop the full potential of our students to become independent learners, develop their leadership capacity and be self-managing and resilient when dealing with challenging situations.

Throughout the program students will learn about:

  • Setting goals
  • Various emotions
  • Confidence
  • Persistence
  • Self-acceptance
  • Positive self-regard
  • Managing time
  • How not to worry about things

In Term 3 our focus foundation was RESILIENCE; in Term 4 we will be focusing on PERSISTENCE.

ART EXPO 2015

What an amazing Art Expo we hosted at our school in the last week of Term 3! With the theme of ‘Alice in Wonderland’, our students magnificent creativity was show cased over a number of days. The multi-purpose room was transformed into a delicious, brilliantly colourful tea party;

Thank you to all the students for sharing their magnificent work and to our Visual Arts teachers, Luisa Macheda and Sonia Boots for organising such a tremendous event.

 

Science Week

We enjoyed celebrating Science Week 2015 with a fun, exciting Science Activity Day. Students took part in many creative Science activities throughout the day; they enjoyed making sherbet, 3D glasses, slime, taking a close up look at worms using magnifying glasses, making an electrical circuit and lots of other various investigations. The range of activities allowed students to explore the different areas of Science; Biological, Physical, Earth and Space and Chemical.

Moorella the Cow!

Moorella Duffy has dramatically changed her appearance over Term 2. She is looking quiet ‘glamorous’ and is almost finished. Together, the students, Mrs Sonia Boots, (one of the Visual Arts teachers), and parents from our school community, have created and completed a fantastic design for Moorella Duffy.

Shortly, Moorella will join many other cows for the judging of her design, before she returns to Reservoir Primary to take pride of place somewhere in our school yard.

 

Family Night 2015

On Wednesday the 18th of February we had our annual Family Night. Our school community gathered together in a casual, friendly atmosphere. Families brought food to share from their various cultural backgrounds. The food was amazing and really delicious. We also had the famous ‘Mrs Franzone sausage sizzle’, jumping castles, and music and dancing. It was a great evening.
