Our excursions and activities have been set for the rest of the year. In an effort to assist parents with financial planning we have listed the excursions by term and then by week. You will see that many of the events are for free. When there is a cost we have in many cases used school funds to keep the cost as low as possible. Some of the excursions are yet to be finalised. Click here to see the excursions and activities for the rest of the year. Keep checking back to see if there are any changes.

EXCURSION REPORT MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART
On Tuesday, 17th of May, the NAP classes visited the Museum of Contemporary Art in Circular Quay. Below is their report.
Class 5V, Class 6A, Stage 1 and Stage 2 students, in the Nee Arrivals Program, and their teachers walked to Fairfield train station to catch the train to Circular Quay. The journey took almost an hour, but we enjoyed our trip there. It gave us plenty of time to talk to our friends!
First, we ate our lunch and then walked to the museum. When we arrived, we were greeted by Ella and Athena, who both work at the museum. Next, we walked around and they showed us many artworks displayed in the museum, followed by making our own artworks. We drew pictures
with pencils, strings and sticky tape! The art experiences were very enjoyable.
We had a fantastic day creating our very own works of art!

New Zealand Conference
I travelled to New Zealand to attend the Trans-Tasman Principal's Conferece in Auckland from Tuesday 31 May to Friday 3 June. The theme of the conference was "The power is in our hands" I was amazed at the diversity of the speakers, who came from all over the world to present to over 900 principals. I am very proud of the work done at Fairfield by our staff and the support we revive from our parents, however we can and should always aim for better for our students. I was very inspired by what I heard and have brought many great ideas back to school. Many of which will assist us in tweaking and improving the educational programs we deliver at Fairfield.
Auckland City skyline
Such a beautiful city, on the harbour and surrounded by lovely hills. Lots of walking for Mr Smith.
Students gave a traditional welcome to the principals.
Sponsors and new friends
I met many sponsors of education, and many new principals from Australia and New Zealand.

A combined orchestra gave us a wonderful performance. so clever.
New Zealand is full of challenges and we were reminded that life is full of challenges, but it's how we respond to them that is important.
A Real Kiwi
I managed to get to the Auckland Zoo for a few hours to see a real life kiwi. A native bird form New Zealand that is very shy and lives in the forests of New Zealand. So excited.
