The students and staff have had a terrific time participating in this week's Indigenous dance workshops. Our thanks to Matt who has been working with students over the last couple of days. It has been great to see everyone so engaged in the activities and so motivated by this activity. Please check back over the next few days as we add images and students recollections about the day.
At the NAIDOC workshop,
We danced and danced and didn’t stop,
Until it was time to go
Our dancing was as smooth as a water flow.
At the NAIDOC workshop we learnt how to dance
Like animals and hunters, we had no chance
Against Matt the master, he was the best,
Much better than all the rest.
At the NAIDOC workshop we had lots of fun
But eventually we were finally done
We went back to class to write a poem
And on Monday a dance is what we’ll show’em.

What a great first week back we have had this week. We are all looking forward to some of the great activities and learning experiences that are planned for Term Three.
It has been great this week to see students in F-2 begin their immersions on Celebrating Diversity and students in 3-6 begin their immersions in Space Science. We are looking forward to seeing some great learning as students work their way through their inquiries.
Term 3 is the term for camps at Pender's! Later this term we have our Grade 2 sleepover at school, our Grade 3/4 3 day camp to Doxa and our Grade 5/6 3 day camp to Wombat corner. Let's hope the weather is warmer for those activities than it has been this week!
We are also really looking forward to our annual celebration for NAIDOC Week. NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia each July to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Pender's Grove NAIDOC Week activities will be held between July 27 - 31.
