Book Week Celebration

What a fantastic Book Week we've had,

There's been books read by teachers in the library, short listed books read in class daily and, the pinnacle of our celebrations........Dress Up Day!!!!!

What an awesome turn out we had. We spotted classic literary characters such as Juliet (sans Romeo), modern classic characters like Hermione and Harry, plenty of Dr.Suess, some Hungry caterpillars and some students and teachers stuck in Wonderland!

It was a fun day and great to see everyone, teachers and students alike, get in to the spirit of the day.

Hiking the Centenary Trail with the Hinchcliffes

This year the Hinchcliffes are walking the Centenary Trail to raise money for the Newborn Intensive Care Foundation. The Newborn Intensive Care Unit looks after critically ill babies to help them get the best start to life.
It’s not because walking is our favorite thing to do, it’s because this year marks 7 years since something happened that changed our lives forever.
In 2010 on the 9th of July Elodie, our sister/ daughter was born but sadly she was not well and did not survive. In her time on Earth she was in the Newborn Intensive Care Unit and they did everything they could for her. So far we have raised $3,460 in under a month!
If you would like to find out more about this wonderful service or donate towards it, please follow the links below.

Thanks kindly.

Book week

Don't forget it's Book Week next Thursday 24 August.

Come to school dressed as your favourite literary character or book inspired themed dress.

Should be a fun day for all.

The Awesome Art Show is sneaking up and we're starting to get excited. I preparation, we're asking all of our 5/6 students to bring in a tin/can (not empty please as they are better to stack when full) and a clean, empty, glass jam jar for our art works.
The can needs to be about the size of a Campbell's soup tin (approx. 400 - 425 grams)
Many thanks in advance.

The Future of Education Video Booth

On Tuesday Fraser Primary was lucky enough to have the Future of Education video booth/ideas igloo at our school.

The video booth is part of the Future of Education project and will capture insight, experiences and ideas from the community to inform a policy document about the future of education in the ACT.  

As a part of the project many of our students and some staff members participated by entering the booth and speaking about their experiences with Fraser Primary.

It was both enlightening and entertaining.

Our students were forthright and honest in their responses and we even received some great feedback about our students and their thoughts about the school and teachers.

Below is an email Mr. Deeker received the Thursday after the event.

Hi Mark
I am one of the people on the Future of Education team and I just wanted to pass on some positive feedback.

Reviewing the footage from the video booth that was held earlier this week at your school, it was really striking how supported by their teachers the young people feel - the students consistently spoke enthusiastically about how teachers knew who they were and what worked for them and that they genuinely cared about them.

It was lovely to watch and I just thought you might like that bit of feedback.


Enjoy some happy snaps of the day.....
