e have had a great start in ⅚ Red with a new mix of both students and teachers. Mrs Williams and Mr Bentley, together with Mrs Marshall, look forward to walking into the classroom every day to a unique, welcoming and motivated group of students.
The best thing about our class is that everyone is welcoming. We are learners - if it's hard we don't give up! We have fun while we are challenging ourselves.
Term 1 has begun with the realisation that Grade ⅚ gives us leadership opportunities and responsibilities. We aim to be good role models and strive to be the best version of ourselves. Grade 6 students were proud to receive our leadership badges at the Commissioning Mass and we made a promise to do our best as leaders in the school.
We are excited to work with the Kindergarten and Prep students as part of the buddy program! Grade 6 students will resume their role as mentor and friend for the Prep students and Grade 5 will work with Kindergarten students.
On 7th May St Cuthbert’s headed to Wentworth Park to compete in the annual Cross Country event. This was the first time that it was held at this venue and it certainly gave us the chance to shine!
Grade 5/6’s leadership was on display, from cheering on younger students and helping them to know where the course was run, to assisting staff to pack away at the end of the day.
It was also a wonderful opportunity to “dig deep” and test ourselves to compete to the best of our ability. We were extremely proud of our achievements! We also wish to acknowledge Max, Laura and Maddie, who finished either in first or second place in their age group.
James and Izak were able to raise the House Cross Country trophy at the end of the day and were gracious in their acceptance speech when congratulating all students, but particularly Rogers House. We loved it!
