Hi Grade 9!
A quick reminder to go to the PAC after lunch today for the GCD rehearsal.
You MUST BRING your stories today. You should leave your bags in your lockers.
See you later
Grade 9 we will have our final preparation session for the GCD Launch today in block 5 in the LGR. See you there with your stories!
Where should I go for Block 5 today?
Grade 9: Go to Upstairs Cafeteria for GCD launch preparation with Mrs Clarke (note; change of location; not LGR)
G6 -8: Go to the room where your UN Goal Group meets – ask your Advisor if you are not sure and check locations below
If you have not chosen a UN Goal see Mrs Clarke today or send an email with your choice.
How might we share our Xblock projects? How might we set effective goals for our projects? How might we deepen our learning in Xblock?
The answer to all of these questions begins with data! Beginning today Mr Jacobson and Ms Merrylees will begin collecting some of the data we need to help us answer these questions.
What do you need to do?
Grade 6: Go to the LGR at the start of Xblock today (block 3) to find out
Grade 7: Go to the LGR at 11.20
Grade 8: Go to the LGR at 12 noon
See you later for more on data…!
Reflection.. did you know it comes from the Latin word ‘reflexio’? Hmm. So what? In our GCD session today we will be digging deep into reflection. Why do we do it? How do we do it? When do we do it to really make it meaningful? Find out in Block 5 today. See you then.
Find out by looking at lists posted on the windows of the LGR or use the password protected link here (password shared in email to your Advisor):

Mr Brown has shared the seating plan and will project it in the PAC for you to find where to sit.
See you this afternoon!
You need to be seated at 1.45 in the PAC for the Awards Assembly today. This means that you need to go to lunch straight away at 1.20, eat and then make your way over to the PAC. All bags should be in lockers.
After 1.30pm today some Grade 7 students will be taking action to raise awareness about climate change. Take a few minutes to go and see the powerful messages they have created in their Humanities classes outside the PAC and in the quad.
The gaming room will be closed for the remainder of the school year. Take the opportunity to go outside, talk to your friends or go to the gym.
Enjoy your last game free days of the school year,
Are you in Grade 6? If yes…then Grade 5 need your help today. Please come to the LGR at the end of lunchtime (start of block 5) for a short meeting before we head downstairs to the Grade 5 classrooms where you will tell Grade 5 all about Middle School.
See you at 1.50pm.
Dear Mandarin Phase 3 Students…a reminder to be in the LGR at the start of break today to meet your partner from the local school. This will be a super quick meeting as Grade 9 will need to get to the Science Fair asap. Don’t be late!
