Assalamualaikum Parents and Guardians,

This term has been a great term for the year 5’s. Time flew by so fast!! The students have been involved in many fun and engaging activities.


At the end of last term, our classes enjoyed a fun and educational excursion to Scitech. The students participated in many activities including watching the perfect firestorm show, experiencing the universe at the interactive dome theatre and other hands on activities.

Book week

Each year the CBCA has brought children and books together across Australia through Book Week. During this time schools spend one glorious week celebrating books. This year the theme was ‘Old Worlds, New Worlds, Other Worlds’. The students enjoyed dressing up for book week this term as their favourite book character.

STEM project

The students were asked to design and construct diorama that shows how animals have adapted to their environments. The students followed the design process which includes ask, research, imagine, plan and create. They all did a wonderful job.

Research about North and South America

In Hass this term the students learnt about North and South America’s countries. Students had to research a country and present their work to the class. The students did an amazing job at designing and presenting their work.


In health, students learnt about how to stay safe online. They were involved in many class discussions about online safety and what it means to them. They learnt many skills to be able to protect themselves online. Next term the students will design a pamphlet about online safety.
