Two Minutes With a Teacher
1.How do you feel about teaching a new set of kindy kids?
2.If you didn’t have K/1 again what year would you like to have?
3.What do you like most about Camden Public School?
4.Final question, what is your favourite subject to teach?
Mrs Penu really likes teaching the new set of kindy kids because she gets to see them develop and grow. She would also like to teach Year 6 because she likes getting them ready for high school.
Mrs Penu likes how Camden Public School is like a big family and her favourite subject to teach is reading because she gets to see the students grow and get better at reading.
George and Thomas interviewed some students about the swimming carnival in Week 3. They spoke to Ethan - 5/6M, Bianca - 5/6L and Abby in 3/4P.
Ethan’s favourite type of swimming technique is freestyle because it is the first style he learnt. He doesn’t think Mr Munday’s diving technique lesson was helpful because he is a good swimmer. Ethan prefers breaststroke more then backstroke. He likes swimming because it helps his muscles after a long day of scooter riding.
Bianca’s favourite type of swimming technique is freestyle because it’s easy and fun. She thinks Mr Munday’s diving technique was helpful because he gave good advice. Bianca prefers breaststroke more than backstroke. She plays netball, dancing and swimming outside of school because they are fun and active. Bianca thinks swimming is good because she gets to swim and play with her friends.
Abby’s favourite technique is freestyle because she is fast at it. She didn't find Mr Munday’s diving lesson helpful because she has a personal trainer. Abby prefers breaststroke to backstroke as well. She does swimming, netball and dancing because it’s fun.
Mr Hawker's Learning Message
Successful people have a growth mindset. They believe that intelligence or being clever comes with hard work. At Camden Public School we want all our students to have a growth mindset. Our brain is like a muscle and when we exercise it gets stronger, which means we get smarter. To exercise our brain we have to challenge ourselves, work hard, persist in the face of setback and learn from feedback from our peers, parents and teachers.

Two Minutes With Some Students
We asked 3 questions to 4 students from each stage, Ella-K/1P, Hannah-2/6W, Ryan-4M and Elias-5/6L.
If you could have a superpower for one day, what would it be and why?
Ella wanted to fly so she could fly to her brother. Ryan wanted super strength so he could lift heavy things. Hannah wanted to fly so she could touch the clouds and Elias wanted to have a force that allowed him to control different things.
What is your favourite subject in school and why?
Ella likes art because she loves to draw. Hannah likes maths because she likes to solve the questions. Elias likes P.E. because he likes to run around and to stay fit at the same time and Ryan likes maths because it is fun and challenging.
Do you have any pets and if you do what are their names?
Elias has a dog named Tilly and he has a guinea pig named Lou Lou. Ella has a dog named Chloe. Ryan has a dog named Roxy and Hannah is getting guinea pigs and naming them Nibbles and Nubbles.

Before riding a bike, always check that your helmet fits correctly by placing 2 fingers on your forehead between your eyes and your helmet. If there’s not a two finger space, your helmet is too high or low and you must adjust your helmet just to top of your fingers.
Remember this: No helmet = No riding your bike.
