The Walking Bus!

What better way to celebrate Walk Safely to School Day than with pikelets, muffins, fruit and a morning walk around Mount Ousley! At 8:15am, the MOPS Walking Bus headed off on its inaugural journey, ending in a delicious healthy breakfast at the school gates. Thank you to all of the kids and parents who joined us for the event! We had over 50 children participate, which was an amazing result for our very first Walking Bus. (A special thank you to the families who don't live in area, but still drove to the start of the trail just to participate!) If you'd like to see some photos of the journey, click through here

UN Peace Ambassador

Natalie N, one of our students, has been selected to represent the Oceania region as a peace ambassador at the United Nations in New York City in March. WIN News ran this story on Natalie's achievement.

We're all so proud and wish Natalie and her family all the best for their upcoming adventure. What an opportunity!

Natalie - Child Peace Ambassador

During September, students in Year 5  joined up to a website called "Friend Our World". There were lots of games on the website and the students had a great time playing them. They weren't just for fun, though. Every game taught the students about other countries and cultures around the world. They played against students from all over the world, developing their knowledge of geography, languages and global citizenship.  

Tournament of Minds

Seven very creative MOPS students travelled to Nowra on Sunday 25th August to compete in the annual NSW Tournament of Minds. Molly, Riley, Aidan, Taya, Mathew, Maggie and Louis had been working on a challenge for the past six weeks and were ready to present their solution. Over the six week preparation period, these students had written a script, organised props, and rehearsed so that they were ready to give a grand performance.

The Results Are In

Well, the results are definitely in - we have some very grubby hands in Stage 3! Martina made a return visit last week, bringing the agar plates with her. Inside there were many, many exciting things to count.
