A big well done to all Year 6 students for finishing some amazing Clay Animation ‘You Can Do It’ movies at the end of last year. All classes in the school have had the opportunity to vote on the movies that best demonstrated the You Can Do It values. I would like to say a big thank you to all of the classes that voted. The below movie ‘I Want to be an Astronaut’ is about Persistence and received the most votes. Congratulations to movie makers – Finn, Poppy, Sofia and Emma B.
Safer Internet Day (SID) is an annual, worldwide event held on Tuesday 6 February 2018 to help encourage a better internet, with this year’s theme ‘Create, connect and share respect: A better internet starts with you’. We will be discussing Internet safety at school and reminding students of our school acceptable Internet use agreement, which is signed by families and students upon enrollment at our school. We have a Prep – Year 2 and Year 3-6 internet acceptable use agreement. Copies of the agreement are available in the office foyer and are included below.
All classes will be doing activities to celebrate Safer Internet Day on Tuesday the 6th of February. There are many excellent resources and games for students of all ages and also informative parent information about cyber safety available on the Australian Government Office of the eSafety Commissioner Office website. The school Digital Technologies blog has also a parent page with links to parent information.

Watch the clip to learn a little about how this game was coded. We might have some fun in class, playing Google’s Mystery animal game.
Mystery Animal is a new spin on the classic 20-questions game. The computer pretends to be an animal, and you have to guess what it is using your voice. Ask any yes-or-no question you want, like “Do you have feathers?” or “Do you sleep at night?”
