Primary Shout Outs

28th September

Parent / Teacher Interviews

I would like to acknowledge and thank all classroom teachers for their efforts in conducting Parent Teacher Interviews last Wednesday and Thursday. Your careful planning and excellent knowledge of your students ensured the 2 nights were a great success.

Chinese Book Fair

I would also like to thank the Chinese team for organising and manning the Chinese book fair during the Parent Teacher Interviews. We had many parents visit and purchase resources to support their children in Chinese language learning.

Mid Autumn Festival Celebration

Friday night saw an opportunity for primary families to get together and celebrate Mid Autumn Festival at DC. In collaboration with the Chinese parent helpers and secondary students the Chinese team did a wonderful job in organising this community event, which was attended by approximately 300 people. A highlight of the evening, were the outstanding Chinese lanterns which many children spent time making at home as part of the Chinese homework. Thanks to Peter Lasscock and Debbie for presenting the winning certificates.

A number of activities were organised, with families participating to gain a a greater understanding of Chinese culture and specifically Mid Autumn festival. The Chinese parent helper group along with some students put on a short play to explain the origin of the 'Moon Festival'.

Overall a very successful night!

Thank you to the staff who attended the night and shared this experience with the our primary families.
