Term 2, Week 10

Arts & Academics Update

We look forward to seeing our students shine next week during the Arts & Academic Festival next Monday, with the schedule of events below. No doubt, students have been prepping and practicing in anticipation of days filled with fun and competition. Who will be the winning house for 2024?

A few FAQ’s 

Scheduling  – Events will commence as scheduled, however we are unable to confirm exact year group/specific student performance times.

Whilst every attempt is made to keep to the schedule, last minute changes may be necessary and will be made at the discretion of the primary leadership team. 

Audience – Parents are welcome to attend events marked with ‘Audience Welcome’ on the Schedule. Many classes will also be participating as audience during these events.

Certificates and placing – Points are allocated to houses for student participation and placing in events.  Certificates are awarded at the end of each section.

Where there are a small number of entries in a particular catergory, the categories may be combined or certificates limited to just a 1st and 2nd place.

Media – Monday Morning

Media entries will be pre judged. Videos will be shown to students on Monday followed by awarding of the winning certificates in each category.

Public Speaking – Monday Afternoon

This is an individual event. If students choose to use props, they must handle them independently without assistance.

Prepared Speeches should be:

  • No longer than 3 minutes
  • Be written by the student

Impromptu Speeches:

  • Students will be provided a topic card and 20 minutes to prepare.
  • Speeches should be no longer than 3 minutes

Drama – Tuesday Afternoon

Please see below for links to scripts

Drama Monologues 2024

Drama GROUP scenes 2024

Should you have any further questions, please contact Rosie eacarramar@ststephens.wa.edu.au

 

No Icy Pole Sales for the Remainder of the Term

Please note that due to interschool commitments and the Arts & Academic Festival logistics, the House Captains will not be selling icy poles for the remainder of the term. The sales will resume in Term 3.

 

 

Children’s University – Monthly Challenge

CU often posts a Monthly Challenge on its online learning portal.  This month, the challenge is called “Window Wonders” and here are the details.

This year’s June Challenge is brought to you by our amazing CU member, Allie! As we cozy up this winter, let’s embrace the beauty outside our windows.

Here’s how to join in:

  1. Describe the view: Find a comfy spot and look out your window. What’s the light like? What’s the weather doing?
  2. Draw what you see: Grab some paper, draw a frame as your window, and then create a picture of what you see outside.
  3. Make a suncatcher: Add some colour to your room by making a suncatcher. Let the sun create beautiful patterns in your space.

You can submit your evidence online or bring it to me at the next passport signing session.  There are only five more passport signing sessions before the 2024 Graduation deadline.  They will be in the primary forum from 8.15am on the following days:

  • Thursday 27 June
  • Thursday 1 August
  • Thursday 15 August
  • Thursday 29 August
  • Thursday 12 September

Please keep in mind, the last few often get quite busy with people trying to get all their hours logged in time for graduation.

Children’s University

There will not be a passport stamping session this Thursday as I will be away on Year 12 Retreat.  The next passport stamping session will be Thursday 13 June.

In the meantime, here is an activity from portal to keep you busy.

Learn your name in Morse Code

Morse is named after Samuel Morse, one of the inventors of the electrical telegraph.  What is an electrical telegraph?  Think long-distance communication using sounds or signals as letters to send a code rather a physical message exchange.  Morse code has been used for 160+ years but is quite different today from when it was originally developed by Samuel Morse.

For this activity, use your research skills to find the international morse code and then make a video of you and one other person communicating your names to each other using only a torch. Upload the video on the portal, email it to me or bring it to show me at the next passport stamping session.

This activity is worth a stamp and one hour in your Passport.

For students who have accured enough hours for graduation yet, don’t forget to log on to the CU portal.  The web address and log on details for the CU portal are inside the front cover of your passport.  Click on one of the tabs at the top of the page and begin exploring all the exciting ways you can learn outside the classroom.   Here is one I found where you can learn more about Antarctica and earn 90 minutes in your passport.  Feel free to print this out, complete the activities and bring it to the next stamping session.

Tournament of Minds

Tournament of Minds is a problem-solving program for teams of students from both primary and secondary years. Tournament’s aim is to enhance the potential of our youth by developing diverse skills, enterprise, time management, and the discipline to work collaboratively within a challenging and competitive environment.

They are required to solve demanding, open-ended challenges from one of the following disciplines:

  • The Arts
    A new discipline for those who have a love for the visual and performing arts!
    The long term challenges will involve research before developing a creative interpretation in response to the Challenge. Plenty of opportunities for artistic expression in the form of dance, song, musical instruments, theatre and all forms of the Visual Arts.
  • STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics)
    A new discipline starting in 2018.
    The combination of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics principles provides an integrated approach for students to deepen their conceptual understanding and use their creative and critical thinking skills to solve the challenges within an authentic context.
  • Language Literature
    Language Literature Challenges will involve in-depth analysis and research of texts from a variety of fields.
  • Social Sciences
    A journey through the moral and ethical issues confronting society in the 21st Century.

Tournament of Minds is an opportunity for students with a passion for learning and problem solving to demonstrate their skills and talents in an exciting, vibrant and public way. Try outs for students in Y5 and 6 will be held after school on Tuesday May 21 3.20pm – 4.20pm in CH6 with Mrs Byrne.

To try out you need to be able to commit to after school rehearsals every Tuesday in T2 and T3 (3.20 – 4.20 pm) and be able to attend the regional presentation at ECU Joondalup on Saturday 31 August 2024; where you will be performing your ten-minute drama/solution. No preparation is required for the try outs, you just need to be comfortable on the stage and be a team player. I look forward to seeing you next week.

Arts and Academic Festival 2024

We are very excited to announce the launch of the Arts & Academic Festival for 2024!

Entry Forms will be available in the Forum from Monday 13 May for students to collect for the areas in which they would like to enter.   Additional information for each of the sections can be found below.  There are categories available for students from Years 1-6 to enter, specific information is noted on each entry form.  As this is a House competition, a reminder that all members of a group must be from the same House. A list of students in each house is available to view at the A&A desk to assist students in choosing a partner.

Completed forms (together with any attachments) need to be submitted to the A&A Entry Desk which will be available each morning from 8.15am – 8.45am Tuesday 14 May to Friday 24 May.   We ask that forms are checked & signed by parents & they will be checked again as they are submitted.

The entry deadline is Friday 24 May.  A Festival Schedule will be prepared and advertised on the blog in Week 9 after all entries have been processed.  So join the fun and get ready to shine for your House!!

Mother’s Day Stall Success!

We would like to thank all the Parent Reps who coordinated the Mother’s Day stall this week as well as the many volunteers who helped manage the stall. It was a huge success! Together, our community raised a grand total of $2000, which will go towards the Evening On The Green at the end of the year. Well done everyone!

Wishing all the mums in our community a relaxing Mother’s Day filled with love and laughter.
