As we arrive at the end of week 3 of Term 3 we have already had lots of events on – including the Year 3 Camp! This term is one of the busiest we have had in years and we love seeing the excited faces of our students as events occur. Next week we have our Parent / Teacher interviews followed by our Year 6 camp in week 5.
Today our Preps celebrated their ‘100 Days of School’. The students looked amazing and our Prep teachers organised a wonderful day filled with exciting celebrations.
Today 83 of our Year 3 – 6 students competed in the District Athletics competition at Landy Field. At the time of writing this I do not have any results, but we wish our students all the best!
On Tuesday the 27th of July, the Grade 6 Debating Teams hosted a debate against Drysdale Primary School. The topic for both debates was ‘We should adopt an opt-out system for organ donors’. One team was Affirmative – Gemma, Neve and Matilda, and one team was Negative – Emi, Florence and Tadhg. It was a tough debate and everyone had so much fun. Both of the teams from Bellaire PS ended up winning, with Florence and Neve being awarded Best Speakers for their debates. We are so excited and hope to win the next one.

This week the Grade 3 students went on camp to Camp Wyuna in Queenscliff. All of the students had a wonderful time experiencing new things. While there, students visited the Marine Discovery Centre and the Queenscliff Maritime Museum, as well as activities including archery, a giant water balloon sling, and playing GaGa. It was a fantastic first school camp experience and, for many, their first time away from home. We would like to thank all of the staff and student teacher volunteers who joined us on camp to make this such a positive experience.
