Room 17 and 18 businesses

Over the last six school weeks, Rooms 17 and 18 have been putting their learning of Economics and Business to good use by creating a range of products soon to be available at your fingertips! The Kidpreneur program has developed students' skills in gathering market research, resourcefulness with money, analysing needs and wants in the market and putting it all together to create reasonably priced products.

We are thrilled to be raising money for the RSPCA and helping animals in need to find a home. Thank you for supporting our businesses and our developing entrepreneurial minds! Available from November 8th on the QKR app!

Uniforms

Please remember to name all hats and jumpers as we are inundated with lost property as the season changes. Jumpers now come with the RagTagd Smart Tags so whenever a Smart tagged uniform is placed in lost property, you will automatically receive an SMS letting you know that it's there - how great is that!

Lunch boxes and drink bottles should also be clearly named. Students are able to collect any lost items from the lost property cupboard in the Ngungana building any time. Younger students can take a buddy to help them find their belongings. Uniforms are available to be ordered via the Qkr! app. Orders will be delivered to the child's classroom within a few days. It is therefore important that student details such as room number are updated in Qkr. 

Year 6 Windcheater - All Year 5 students who are returning to Mitcham Primary in 2022 will have the opportunity to try on sample sizes of the Year 6 Windcheater. To ensure the correct size is selected for your child we encourage you to attend the try on session. More information will be sent to families shortly.

Performing Arts News - Stars In The Arena

On Saturday 11 September, 51 Mitcham students participated in this years Festival of Music choir performance at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre. It was a massive feat with students meeting at school at 12:30 travelling to the AEC to rehearse.

They were given a short break to eat and have photos taken before returning to the stage for the performance at 7:00pm. It was an amazing spectacle of sound, lighting and laser effects and even finished (to the surprise of students) with fireworks. Despite the teachers being exhausted, students were still full of energy and gave us a surprisingly good rendition of "Sweet Caroline" on the bus trip home. Congratulations to all performers!

Digital download spare forms are available in Mr Ebert's room and should be returned to the office upon payment. Links will be sent directly to families once the video has been published. Please be patient, it might take a few weeks.

Library News

The Premiers Reading Challenge has now finished. Congratulations to the 504 students who completed the challenge. Awards will be handed out next term.

Great Book Swap

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Great Book Swap at Mitcham. Together we raised $740 for the Indigenous Literacy Foundation. Money raised goes towards books and literacy resources for Indigenous Australians living in remote communities.

It’s nearly school holidays and I encourage our students to borrow books from the library to read while away from school. If you or your child have received an overdue notice please return the book promptly so that the next person can borrow it. If your child is unable to find a book please send me an email to let me know and I’ll mark the book as missing, ensuring they can borrow next time they visit the library. I understand books get lost or damaged and often misplaced books turn up at home and can be returned later.

Yours in Reading

Science News

It has been an incredibly busy and messy term learning Chemistry.  Students have had so much fun exploring materials and how they react with each other.

Your children were involved in many of the following experiments: Oobleck slime, Borax slime, putty, wizard's brew, perfume potions, chromatography, lemonade, marshmallow towers, travelling ink, sherbet, bubbles, snow, chocolate dipped food,  melting experiments, gummy bears in different solutions, popcorn, rainbow paper, rainbow liquids & decomposing materials.  Students have learnt about solids, liquids and gases and their properties.  I have learnt to not give Receptions black sticky slime to play with!  (Just putty!!)

I have been so impressed by the way students have adopted new scientific language into their oral language when speaking with peers, as well as writing up experiments.  We have had a big focus this term to use Scientific vocabulary wherever possible.

I would love to give a great big thank you to Rick Irving, a grandparent in the school.  He has given up a lot of his time to collect and label rocks, fossils and seeds to donate to the Science room.  These donations make the Science room so engaging for students. 

I'm getting excited about putting away the slime for another year, and setting up a Biology classroom next term.  The room will be filled with plants and animals.  Students love donating mini beasts to the classroom (dead and alive) as well as beautiful flowers and plants from their garden.  All of these interesting items are greatly appreciated so I can provide many hands-on experiences. 

Have a lovely Spring break. See if you can collect things for the Science room.

Casual Day - Friday 24th September

Our next casual day fundraiser will be held on the last day of Term 3, Friday 24th September, supporting the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Make-A-Wish is an Australian charity that creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.

Several of our Mitcham students have received a wish, which has supported them and their families and provided a positive focus during challenging times.

Each child's Wish Journey is carefully planned and delivered over several stages to create a positive, lasting impact. Wishes are designed to complement a child's medical treatment, working to calm, distract and inspire at a time they need it most. When a wish is realised, a child discovers that despite their situation, anything is possible. In this way, wishes deliver both an immediate boost and long lasting effect on the lives of sick kids, their families and communities.

Through SRC discussions and class meetings, students have elected the casual day dress theme to be purple and yellow. These colours have historically been connected with Make-A-Wish.

We look forward to seeing everyone in their purple and yellow clothes. Students may wear a little colour or wear a lot, but please make it SunSmart! Don’t forget to bring along a gold coin donation.
