Term 4 [Dianella]

Photography Club


Aspirant photographers were very eager to get outdoors this term to photograph the new blooms of Spring. New blooms, in all their glory, in every green space were photographed by our intrepid photographers. Club members are currently honing their skills to form part of an elite group that will photograph the Year Six Graduation. They will eventually form part of a dedicated media team responsible for photographing all school events.

Basketball Club


In term 4, 20 students were given the opportunity to join the basketball club run by Mr. Bruce. There was a mixture of abilities between the 20 students as approximately half had completed the previous basketball club run in term 2. The progression of many students has been remarkable from both term 2 and this term, as many went from not being able to make a layup/ scoring right close to the ring, to now being able to make lay ups and 3 pointers more consistently. There are several students who stand out. Hisham [...]

Netball Club


Welcome to Netball! Our club has evolved since last term, with the introduction of a professional netballer training and inspiring our students to take their netball skills to the next level; Miss Tammy Mostamandi (aka Year 1C teacher).Both Miss Mostamandi and I have had an amazing experience with the young ladies, who are keen, energetic, and always well prepared for the sessions. We even created a new drill that does not involve the netball at all! Very advanced if you ask me.  Since the start of the term, our students have shown excellent teamwork, and their passing, [...]

UNO Club


Do you know about UNO? It is a fun game about trying to get rid of all the cards in your hand before the other players. But there’s a catch! Certain cards can make other players draw more cards; you can even chain these cards with each other to make other players draw ludicrous amounts of cards. Some of our club members have the most dreadful recurring nightmares of drawing 4, 8, 16 and even a horrific 24 cards at one time! But that doesn’t compare to the utmost destructive and forbidden card that lurks in [...]

Year 6


Literacy The Year 6 students were trained on persuasive writing skills using the ‘Seven steps of writing’. Students learn how to write convincing arguments almost every day of the week and that helped them build a sense of confidence with their writing. To prepare them for NAPLAN, they also had to practice typing their drafted work using Microsoft Words. Numeracy Students learnt a variety of topics which includes measurement, ratio, probability, coordinates and statistics. Since much of this term’s focus was on preparing them for graduation, we spent several lessons revisiting past topics such [...]
