Over the past 2
weeks Room 8 has been participating in swimming lessons at Starfish Swim
School. The students have not only learnt new skills and techniques but enjoyed
the opportunity to learn alongside their peers.
Term 3 saw us looking at the Education Brief and what our students
believe Oaklands should look like as we move toward a Modern Learning
Environment - Collaborative.
There brief was to look at what they wanted
our inside and outside learning spaces to look like, as well as what they would
like to see inside them. From here, the students then opted into one of two
groups - the design and layout of learning spaces (inside or outside) or
furniture design. The students were excited at the prospect of redesigning our
school and thus, leaving their mark.
Deacon have been busy working in the garden with Mr McAven. They have been
digging holes and preparing the garden to plant potatoes ready for Christmas.
The budding green fingers even made the local newspaper.
