Welcome to Year 5

Throughout the term, the Year 5 students have completed some mind blowing work. We have worked collaboratively with the Year 6 class during our ‘Talk for Writing’ program and we have already seen some amazing persuasive writing pieces as a result. The students have truly adapted well to the expectations of Year 5 and it has been wonderful seeing students make Jesus real in our class everyday as they display virtues of respect, kindness and compassion to all. Welcome to Year 5!
