A huge variety of onesies and teddies appeared at the school on Thursday this week when the junior School Council organised a Pyjama Day as a fundraiser for Cerebral Palsy research.
Teachers and students came to school in their warmest night attire to support a very important fundraising event. In the afternoon grades organised special Teddy Bear picnic events and participated in lots of fun cross age activities and games.
Thanks to Amy and the Junior School Council for their efforts in organising the day!
Thornbury High School Band visit
The school was rocking on Monday this week when instrumental students and staff from Thornbury High School paid a visit to the school. They played for us for nearly an hour and it was great to see students and staff up and dancing and enjoying the show.
Thanks to THS for arranging the visit and a special thanks to the band for playing a little longer then epxcted so that our student that had just returned from swimming were able to enjoy some of the performance. We look forward to the band visiting us again soon.
Education Week and our 90th Birthday!
Education Week has been a fantastic success so far at Pender's Grove!
On Monday we shared cake and planted a tree for our 90th birthday. The tree is a beautiful flowering gum that is already looking at home in our playground.
On Wednesday we participated in National Simultaneous Storytime with reading and activities about "Too Many Elephants in the House" by Ursula Dubosarsky and Andrew Joyner.
What surprises will Thursday and Friday hold?
Education Week: May 19-23
Lunchtime Activities: Yoga
Our new lunchtime activities have been going very well over the last few weeks.
We have had students involved in such wide ranging interests as computers, dance, yoga, reading, investigations, singing and crochet!
It has been great to see our students involved in some different pursuits than the usual lunchtime games and activities.
Felicity and Rebecca have been working with a group of students on a Friday in a yoga club and the students attending have been loving See the photos for some examples of what they have been up to. Keep an eye on this page for more images from other lunch clubs!
Thanks to a fantastic group of parents, students and staff on Saturday the first step in the regeneration of our Indigenous Graden has begun!
Weeding, digging, cleaning and pruning were the order of the day and our garden is looking more inviting already. Luckily the group beat the rain and managed to keep dry whilst they worked.
The next step is to begin work with our students on designing enhancements to our garden that will likely include seating and new pathways to make the garden an inviting and useful teaching and relaxation space.
