Sports Day

Friday, 18 September was Sports Day this year and we had some fantastic weather to help us enjoy the all the different events. We had spent a lot of time with Mr Heatherington practising our skills and then got to share all this fun with our family and friends who were able to watch on the big day.

As you can see by the photos we had a fantastic time and Mrs Knipe is sure everyone was thoroughly exhausted by the end of the day – she knows that she was!

 

 

Koko and Kev: the travel buddies

This week we have Koko the koala and Kev the kiwi visiting with us. These travel buddies are visiting schools all around the world and sharing their adventures in each place on their blog: plctravelbuddies.blogspot.com.au The travel buddies started off in the school of a teacher friend of Mrs Knipe’s in Sydney and so far have travelled around Australia and then have visited schools New Zealand, Malaysia and England. We enjoyed reading about all their adventures, though we were a little jealous of the school in Malaysia that had a huge swimming pool as part of their grounds! This is a great chance for us to practice all of our cybersafety and digital citizenship skills for a real audience and we are having a great time writing up information about what our school days are like at Modbury West and sharing some of the highlights of our school via photos.

Here is a photo of all of us with Kev and Koko and we will share some more information about what we have been up to with you soon.
