Gr 3/4 Animators Advertise Aths Day

We further explored two iPad apps today in Art. Drawing Pad was used to create each photo or screen shot that made up our short movie advertising the upcoming Aths Day. One person was the animator and their job was to create one page whilst the photographer snapped each screen shot. Well done to 3/4KM and 3/4K for these impressive short ads. I liked how you all worked well in your groups to quickly make decision and have the projects completed in the short amount of time available.

Hi to everyone in the HWPS Sporting Community.

It’s been a busy term in Sport & PE at HWPS. Our Swimming carnival was a huge success with over 200 students at Ashburton Pool for a great day of swimming. Congratulations to all students involved with Freeman taking the title! Well done to all students that progressed to Kew District swimming, Boroondara Divisional swimming & Eastern Region swimming.

Interschool Sport has been running smoothly thanks to the dedication of all our students, Grade 5/6 teachers and helpers. The results and sportsmanship has been outstanding. We all look forward to Gala Day at Mcleay Park on Thursday 3rd April.

It’s been great working with all the new classes in PE in Term One. The Foundation students have settled in nicely. Our Running Club on Tuesday mornings received overwhelming support with over 70 students gearing up for Cross Country! Keep working hard everyone!

HWPS Cross Country is on Thursday 24th April. Thanks to all the parents and teachers for your input and support this term!

Take it easy. Sam 🙂
