Thank you for our New Flags



Have you noticed that the flags haven't been flying at our school?

Our flags have been absent this year, as our old ones had worn out and developed holes. It was time to get new ones!

Who to help?

A task of a leader is to reach out and ask for assistance, so two of our representatives were asked to write a letter to Chris Patterson, who is the Member for Camden. Alex, our Captain for Primary School and Victoria, one of our prefects, wrote a letter on behalf of our school. They explained the need of flags and asked if Mr. Patterson could help us.

This request was kindly passed to Angus Taylor, Member for Hume, who helped us out by sending two flags: The Australian Flag and the Aboriginal Flag. A very big Thank you to our Members of Parliament and their staff for their generosity and organising the flags to be sent to our school.



They will be very proudly flown, especially on the upcoming Harmony Day, when we celebrate the diversity that exists in our community.

The Burnt Stick- A Personal Response

Stories can help us see, the experiences and emotions of other people. Using stories to empathise with another person's life can be a powerful way to change the views that we might hold about other people. It puts us into their shoes, and see another person's life through their eyes.

The Burnt Stick is a book written with that intention. The story is about an aboriginal boy called John Jagamarra who was taken from his family when he was 5 years old. He was taken by the Welfare man to live with the Fathers at Pearl Bay Mission for Aboriginal Children, to learn the ways of the white man.

The students in Stage 3 have been learning about how to write a personal response to a story. Personal responses come in many forms but always need to have a summary of the story and a personal response or opinion about it.

The criteria for our personal response is:



The starting point for the writing was to brainstorm ideas about the feelings and thoughts about the story. What would it like to …

"My Country" Poetry Writing

Words can have an impact when we use them in ways that create images and evoke emotions. Poetry is a way of writing that allows someone to communicate these images and emotions in a deeply personal way. They require creativity and thought about a subject, often using a limited amount of words to so.
Dorothea Mackellar is an Australian poet, who uses imagery in her poetry to great effect. They portray her love of her country by creating images of colour and ruggedness through a rich use of descriptive words. The most famous of her poems is called "My country", which the students then compared to another poem of hers called "Colours of the Light".


After completing the lessons on imagery from these poems, we came up with a definition and looked at the words that can evoke the 5 senses. 
To start the process of using imagery in our own writing, we brainstormed ideas for poems. This helps the process of pre-writing. Getting ideas written down assists the students' …
