This was our last week of Term Four and our last week for the 2014 school year. We finished the year with a bang with a number of exciting events.
This year we had a class bank account to help us learn about managing money and economics. Throughout the year we ran events to earn money for our account.
Some of the events we organised were:
* ANZAC Day cookies
* A Trivia Night for kids
* Pyjama Day for the whole school
* Kiosk at our school production
* Guess the lollies in the jar competition
* Two raffles (basketball and iTunes voucher)
At the start of the year we set ourselves the goal of earning $1000. We were thrilled to exceed our target and ended up depositing $1365 into our account. Our money was always going towards an end of year excursion and when we knew we had enough, we voted on where we would like to go. We decided on Funfields. Our money paid for our admission and the bus. It was a great way to celebrate the end of the year with our friends and family.
Earlier this week, we held our Grade Six Graduation. It was a very enjoyable night. Our Grade Sixes presented their families with a ‘Memory Book’ filled with photos, work and written reflections of each year spent at primary school. Upper Plenty presented our Grade Sixes with a framed certificate, graduation gift and a yearbook.
You can see some of the clips we presented on the evening below.
We wish our Grade Six Graduates all the very best as they move to new schools and Year 7.
Class Party & Kris Kringle (K.K)
Our class party and K.K was great fun. At the start of December we each drew a name out of a box. We then had to buy a present for this person and place it under the Christmas tree – without them knowing! On Wednesday we opened our presents and guessed the identity of our K.K.
Christmas Carols & Awards Night
Last night we held our annual Christmas Carols and Awards Night. Each class sang a Christmas song and awards were handed out for academic merit (includes effort, achievement, behaviour), sports achievement, citizenship, art and two special awards in memory of past students. Congratulations to all our performers and award winners.
Here’s a little Christmas song we sang today especially for all our blogging friends…
We are now on holidays until the end of January. See you all in 2015.
Merry Christmas everyone!
