Great Cycle Challenge

Miss Fraser is taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge throughout October to fight kids’ cancer!

Right now, cancer is the largest killer of children from disease in Australia AND 3 children die from cancer every week.

Last year Sarah Round (Prep teacher) participated in event and rode 500km. This year other teachers are taking part and we have made a Killara Primary School team, where we aim to raise funds to support the Children’s Medical Research Institute to continue its work in developing treatments and finding a cure for childhood cancer.

Miss Fraser’s goal is to ride 50km by October 31st. If you would like to sponsor her challenge you can do so through this fundraising page  – or support our team. *All donations are tax deductible.

Stay tuned for my riding progress!

Thank you for your support.

Family Blogging Afternoon

Today, the Learning Lizards invited their family members to come into their classroom for a Family Blogging Afternoon!

 

Students made invitations either using paper or Microsoft Publisher on the computers to give to a special person in their family.

We had mums, dads, aunties, grandparents and other family members come along.

First, Miss Fraser gave a quick speech about why we blog in our classroom and the benefits of blogging, such as improvements in literacy, community building, geography & internet safety.

The students and their special visitor then had a challenge to complete! They had to visit our blog and other blogs to help answer the questions on the quiz.

When they finished the challenge, students showed their special visitor how to write a good quality comment.

 

Well done to the winners of our challenge – Charlotte and her Mum, Rose!

What a fabulous afternoon full of fun and learning! Thank you to everyone for coming!
