Year 6 Camp Reflections

On 27 July we left school to go to our Year 6 camp. When we got to camp we sorted out our dorm and unpacked our bags. During our free time we played an ultimate hide and seek.

Then we split up into groups to do different activities. Our first activity was flying fox, what an amazing activity! One of our favourite snacks was next up, Gelato. We then had kite making next, we used these kites in our free time. In the recreation room we had a quiz and game night, and we had a huge BPS Pictionary game. Our team was the winner for both rounds.

It was a terrible idea for the adults to give us donuts right before we had to go to sleep.

The morning wake up was too early for us. The activities we had for the day were catapult building, rock climbing, team building and archery. Another yummy treat we had was icy poles and watermelon slices. 

We will always remember our second dinner, Taco Thursday we called it. That night we had a movie night, and we watched the Karate Kid.  Before we went to bed everybody was saying “wax on, wax off”.  The next day we had more amazing activities like “Geocahing” and “You Can Do It”. One more delicious lunch and it was time for the bus ride home.  

It was a wonderful experience that we will never forget.

Year 5 Camp Reflections

Camp was super duper fun. We had a blast doing rock climbing, orienteering and archery but my absolute favourite was search and rescue, because we got to jump in the rain, use walkie-talkies and we got to open a safe full of medical things. The food was delicious. We had burgers, scones, cookies and watermelon but my favourite was Mad Mexican. We had burritos and tacos. My favourite part of camp was the dorms. I was in one with my best friends and it was super fun because we played charades for game night. It was the best two days ever, especially with all my classmates.

Lottie, Year 5

Camp is the best, I want to do it all the time! The dorms were awesome and the food was absolutely the best. In search and rescue it was so funny to see Noah jump up and find him. I saved us from being lost, then we had lunch. We had burgers. It was so good, Gordon Ramsey would adore it! Then we did orienteering. We went through secret tunnels and paths and we went to every spot in the camp. Then afternoon tea was so good - we had scones with jam, then we had dinner, Mad Mex, then we did quiz night. In the morning we had bacon, toast, egg and baked beans for breakfast, then we did archery and I hit the bullseye. After that we did rock climbing – it was so big, I went about 50 metres high and was the fastest one! It was the best, even Mr Dique did it! I wish I was always at camp.

Ethan, Year 5

Some of the best experiences on camp were orienteering, search and rescue and rock climbing. Although there was lots of rain, it cleared up the next day. I enjoyed being in the dorms with my friends. There was a serious dorm inspection and we won! Our name was the Pink Flamingos. The food was wonderful. It truly was a remarkable experience. I wish I could go back again this year.

NAIDOC

“Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up!”

We held our 2022 NAIDOC celebration on Friday 22 July. National NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia in the first week of July each year (Sunday to Sunday), to celebrate and recognise the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. NAIDOC Week is an opportunity for all Australians to learn about First Nations cultures and histories and participate in celebrations of the oldest continuous living cultures on earth.

This year’s NAIDOC theme was “Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up!”. Students worked with their classes to explore how Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have taken action to fight for justice, and thought about the way Australians can stand alongside Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as advocates and allies and how the future might look when we all Get Up! Stand Up! and Show Up!

Students also participated in some on Country learning, observing and recording what they saw and heard. K-Year 3 students explored our local Country on our school grounds and Year 4-6 students walked to the Derbarl Yerrigan (Swan River) and our local wetlands. In our on Country learning, our focus was on learning more about Whadjuk Country – the culture, local plants and animals – and strengthening our connection to Country.

This year, our students have started working on Acknowledgements of Country in their classes. Students from across the school shared some of their acknowledgements at our Wanjoo (Welcome) assembly. We have been fortunate to receive a PALS grant for our project “Hands Up, Hands Down, We are on Whadjuk Ground”. This year and next year, we will be learning more from traditional owners of this Country and developing respectful and meaningful Acknowledgements of Country for our school, including artwork around our school grounds.

Thanks to the great team of staff who helped organise this year’s NAIDOC celebration – Nicolle Lockyer, our Aboriginal and Islander Education Officer; Nerina Patroni, Kristy Hamilton and Liz Olsen for organising the early childhood activities; Lucia Schuster and Darelle Seal for organising the Year 1-3 activities and Karen Winterburn for organising the Year 4-6 activities.

Science Week

National Science Week is Australia’s annual celebration of science and technology and thousands of individuals – from students, to scientists to chefs and musicians – get involved, taking part in science events across the nation.

Science Week is designed for everyone – it’s definitely not restricted to schools and universities – with events and activities and talks and shows for every age group.

It provides an opportunity to acknowledge the contributions of Australian scientists’ to the world of knowledge. It also aims to encourage an interest in science pursuits among the general public, and to encourage younger people to become fascinated by the world we live in. www.scienceweek.net.au

We will be utilising STEM equipment from SciTech. The regular Science program will be collapsed, and students will have the opportunity to trial technology linked to Science. Bayswater PS would like to formally acknowledge and thank David Hoskin and the SciTech team for lending us this equipment.

Our art program will have Science linked activities!

STEM EXPO 

We will be hosting a STEM expo, where students can enter a project that they have created at home and can bring to school to share with their peers. The STEM expo will be held after school on Wednesday 17 August between 3:15pm and 4:15pm, in the Science room.

Our theme is Space and Earth Science, however, to foster curiosity and encourage creativity, all STEM project entrees will be accepted. There are lots of project ideas on the science week website, Pinterest and Google.

Please use the link if you would like to enter your child: https://forms.office.com/r/XMw81WcnEV

We look forward to seeing what our students will discover!

Tree Planting Day

Terrific Tree Planting

What was the best thing about tree day? It was making new friends and giving life to many, many trees. My new friend and I really loved giving life to three more trees. Trees give oxygen to not just animals but to us and most life on Earth. Without trees, we will suffer from a lack of oxygen and eventually die! Please plant trees for the future of this beautiful, wonderous world we call home, Earth!

by Louis, Theo and Iknoor

 

Tree Planting is a Yes!

This special day is to help the environment by planting trees. We were lucky enough to plant trees with some Year One buddies from Room 11. We showed them how to dig a hole and plant a tree in the ground. Then we told them some facts about trees that we had been learning in class. We loved making new friends and helping to improve the environment. I think our buddies enjoyed this time too.

Your Move

Over the past few years, Bayswater Primary school has been involved in a government initiative called “Your Move”. Your Move is a free program that provides information and support to help schools find more active, healthy ways to get around before and after school.

Schools can use the “Your Move” website and post about the great things that they are doing within the community relating to this. In return, the schools receive points which can be redeemed for a wide range of prizes and incentives. 

Mr Doney would like to create a “Your Move” team with some parents/caregivers of the school. The role would require communicating with Mr Doney to help organise activities and to post them on the “Your Move” website.

Please email jesse.doney@education.wa.edu.au if you are keen to assist with such a great cause.

Canteen News

Canteen updates

Dear parents and carers we have had an influx of "late orders" being called into the office for children's lunch orders. The cut off for online QuickCliq orders is 9am. This is to allow parents enough time to get orders in before school starts and our canteen manager sufficient time to coordinate and prepare the orders.

Did you know orders can be placed in advance on QuickCliq? You can order for the week or month ahead, top up your account balance and view your orders at any time on your QuickCliq account. 

The online menu is also the most up to date version and shows current availability of things like Sipahh straw flavours and our Monday specials. 

Please be considerate of our school office staff and our canteen manager as late orders create additional work for them.

 

Canteen Volunteers

Friday is our busiest day in the canteen and we always need extra hands. We have a class room volunteer roster for these days however this term we have had some difficulties filling these slots. If your class is rostered on please consider helping out. We only need you for 3 hours - 10 am to 1pm and it is always fun, plus your children love seeing you at school!

If you are regularly available on a Friday and would like to go on our standby list please contact Bernadette at canteen@bpspc.asn.au

Many thanks for continuing to support our canteen.
