Concert 2016 – We are Children of the World

Junior choir singing

What a wonderful celebration on intercultural understanding through song and dance our end of year concert was this year. The weather gods were kind and the balmy evening started with the P&C BBQ, drinks and coffee and then flowed into the combined bands and all the team items.

With more picnic rugs than ever this year families enjoyed the lush grass and sat back and enjoyed what many have said was one of Turner’s best concerts ever!

Our children and staff demonstrated what wonderful talents they have with every item a hit.

2016 Fete success

Posted on 07 Feb 2017

Food stall at the 2016 Turner School Fete Our annual fete was really wonderful and the day went without a hitch, demonstrating the expert team behind the scenes. Kirsty Brook, as convenor ensured it all went off very well and every stall holder and their support team put in many, many hours on the day and before.  This year’s fete was full of even more music than usual and that added to the buzz and community feel. The financial success of the day is brilliant and your P&C will work with the community to decide how it will be spent . We know every child will benefit from the success of the fete.

2016 Years 5/6 Market Day

Students serving food at the 2016 Year 5/6 Market Day
Market Day was held Friday 18 November 2016. Students from across 5/6 researched, designed and created some incredible stalls and the day has been declared a huge success by all who attended.

Everyone enjoyed Market Day despite the blazing sun and humid temperatures, as there was a range of drinks and ice creams to keep everyone cool and refreshed (plus sunscreen and hats).  There was a variety of food and drinks, products and games like the sponge throw, There was nail painting, henna tattoos and Oobleck; not to mention stress balls and fun balloon animals. The market place was streaming with people, bright colourful products and foods. The burrito shops seemed to be hot spot and collected over $500 between them. All 5/6 students enjoyed preparing their stalls and browsing around in their spare time.

Years 5/6 Leadership Retreat at Warrambui

Posted on 06 Apr 2016

Children climbing through a rope spider's web

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.

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.
