Years 5/6 Leadership Retreat at Warrambui

Posted on 06 Apr 2016

What did you do at Warrambui? Ah, where to start? We did numerous things, each one better than the last! There was no time to waste so we started as soon as we got there. There was archery, orienteering, a tricky obstacle course and the mysterious mission survivor in which we had to get a bucket of ‘toxic waste’ into a safe place. But there were challenges, such as getting through a spider’s web, making a diamond blindfolded and going through some quicksand with just a couple of planks. We also had a movie night with popcorn.

So what did you learn about yourself from being at Warrambui? I learnt that it doesn’t matter who you work with as long as you work together to get the job done.

Swimming Carnival fun!

Children enjoying the swimming carnival

What a fantastic day the K-6 students had at the Swimming Carnival on Tuesday 1 March. The sun was shining, the water glistening and the students were cheering! It was great to see the house captains leading the cheers and everybody participating enthusiastically in both the junior and senior rotations.

Special congratulations goes to Stonehaven who come away with the most house points on the day. House results:

Stonehaven – 222 points Gloucester – 190 points
Gowrie – 186 points Isaacs – 158 points

Turner School would like to say a big thank you to Allison Chapman for organising the carnival and to Renee Gill, Alex Lily, Heather Walker and David Conley for representing the staff in the house relay.

Years 5/6 Market Day

Posted on 04 Dec 2015

Student buying something at Market Day

Market day was a giant 5/6 project this term. Organising stalls, posters and prices was a huge learning opportunity and paid off by being lots of fun! On the day there were food stalls, activity stalls and many more amazing ideas from the 5/6s. We started the day by having a whole hour to set up, but even though that sounds like a long time there was a lot to prepare. Then all of a sudden the huge waves of salivating, excited children came pouring out of their class rooms having seen our colourful posters. We tried our best to fight them off but with our amazing bargains and irresistible prices they kept coming back. Market Day was a great success! We all had a great time and are looking forward to next year! Nea E, 5/6SH and Phillip E, 5/6LS

Turner School Fete success!

The rain held off, the temperatures were really pleasant, the stall holders were all well prepared and the hundreds of children, families, staff and community members who visited our fete had a wonderful time! The day was a success on every level and by every measure. The atmosphere was relaxed and happy and the committee led by Heather Kettle, Pip Chapman, Helen Bell, Kirsty Brook and Di Jones did a wonderful job to bring it all together. On behalf of the whole Turner School community, thank you to the fete coordinators and their big committee of keen and talented stall holders. More photos  -->
