Miss Hunichen is back again!! Another grade of Prep children. She is sooooo excited to be welcoming 22 new faces to New Gisborne Primary School and is looking forward to many new adventures. Explore our blog and get ready to meet the DELIGHTFUL children of Prep D. After exploring our blog please leave us a comment.
Unfortunately there will be no school tomorrow or Friday because of the fire in the art room on Tuesday night. Our classroom is all ok and all of your things are safe.
We will find some time early next term for you to complete your excellent dinosaur projects and so that you can watch the last episode of Walking with Dinosaurs.
Mrs Hollands and I hope that all of the children with chicken pox get better very soon and that those of you who haven’t had them stay well over the holidays and thatt you don’t get them.
We also hope that you all have a lovely and safe holiday and we will be very much looking forward to finally seeing you all again after the break. Mrs Hollands is looking forward to her holiday to America while Miss Hunichen will be enjoying the sunshine in Bali with Mrs McConville.
Don’t forget to leave us a comment
to tell us what you are doing on the holidays.
School is back on the 18th of July and that weekend a fun run is being held to raise money for our new Art Room. We hope you will all join us.
Mrs Hollands and I thought you might like to practise some of your keyboard skills over the holidays. Dance Mat Typing is a great place to practise. It teaches you where to put your fingers and before you know it you will be able to touch type without looking at your fingers!

Last Friday the 24th of June, the children at New Gisborne Primary School participated in a ‘Jump off’ day as part of the Jump Rope for Heart fundraiser.
The children over the past term have been learning how to skip during P.E sessions and we have been impressed with the amount of children coming to school with their own skipping ropes, practicing every chance they have.
The Jump off day was held in the gymnasium and was set up as a circuit. We rotated around eight different skipping related activities. They included hoop skipping, an obstacle course, colouring in the skipping boy/girl, individual speed skipping, long rope skipping, trick skipping and jumping activities.
Mrs Hollands and Miss Hunichen also showed off their skills to the children! Mr Goodyear did a wonderful job in organising the day and we thank him heaps!
Well done to all who have raised money for the Heart Foundation. So far, N.G.P.S have raised over $5000.00. Keep up the terrific skipping!
This week you chose the dinosaur that you wanted to research and you began working on your borders. Weren’t those pieces of paper huge? They were hard to fit on the table. You made your headings using WordArt in the computer lab and we will stick those on next week.
Next week Mrs Hollands and I will also be giving you some information on your dinosaur. For those very clever children we thought you might like to start researching your own information.
Here are some websites which will help you find some information.
