This week, students in the Grade 1 and 2 were treated to a special visit from St. Johns Ambulance as part of our Integrated Topic. Students learnt some basic first aid including:
- What is an emergency and what isn’t
- What to do for a nose bleed, burn or snake bite
- What it means to be conscious and unconscious
- What number to call for an emergency
The session was wonderful and full of real life skills that students may need to use in emergency situations. Students seem to especially enjoy the game at the end and Joel playing an unconscious grandpa! Everyone was sent home with some goodies including a colouring book, a certificate of attainment, and a sticker.
Today is PJ Day at Coburg North Primary School. Everyone came to school dressed in their favourite pyjamas. PJ Day is to raise some money for the Good Friday Appeal. 2B are feeling very comfortable in their pyjamas.
Yesterday evening was the annual Coburg North Primary School Twilight Sports evening. There were lots of different races and everyone had a great time.
Miss Post is taking part in the World’s Greatest Shave.
Please sponsor her to give Aussie families facing blood cancer the emotional and practical support they need. You will also help fund vital research so more people survive blood cancers like lymphoma, leukaemia and myeloma.
You may not know it but blood cancer is the third most common cause of cancer death in Australia, claiming more lives than breast cancer or melanoma. And every day another 35 people will be diagnosed.
Click Here to visit my shave page and sponsor $10 today.
These funds will ensure someone being treated in hospital gets a personal visit from a highly-trained health professional so they get the extra support they need.
No matter how much you give, it’s an extraordinary way to make a difference.
Help me make the most of my World’s Greatest Shave experience and sponsor me today!
PS – Next time this photo will be of me and my bald head J
Today we got to have a basketball clinic. Mike from the Coburg Giants came to school and taught us some different passes and some new games. We also learnt where different areas of the basketball court are, such as the baseline and the centre circle.
Today was Crazy Hair Day and there were a lot of interesting hairstyles in 2B. It was to raise funds for Camp Quality. We also got to see a play with the Camp Quality puppets, which was great.
We have been learning about Cinquain poems in class. Cinquain poems have to have five lines and they don’t rhyme. There are rules you have to follow for each of the five lines.
Here are some examples from our class.
