20/05/2015
Kadhego students are focusing on Maths this term and improving their knowledge and achievement results in number. We are working on new, fun ways of working and improving. The Grade 3 and 5 students have done their  NAPLAN testing , they put in extra preparation time before and after school, they enjoyed a breakfast and morning tea program over the 3 test days to make sure their brains are fuelled and ready to work to their highest potential.
In Language and culture this term we are looking a Malu and Traditional recreation games, students are engaging in the Full Immersion language program and making great progress with the language and continuing their cultural connections. The Gardening Club is also assisting with the planting and preparation for NAIDOC day. We look forward to NAIDOC day all term and the opportunity for all students to engage with the harvesting and cooking process for the community feast and activities held at the school. Traditional dances are a massive part of the day and all students play a part in displaying these to the community.
Kadhego had two Grade 6 boys training to go to Brisbane for the Boy’s Touch Footy tournament. We are very proud to have had 5 boys try out on Thursday Island and so excited to see how the selected boys go in the state competition. Our Grade 4, 5 and 6 girls are also training at lunch time and after school, we have two Grade 6 girls selected to go to Cairns for the girls Touch and league Footy- Well done Naioki Dai and Cassandra Dau. We are proud that Cassandra Dau has been selected to go to the State competition.  We wish those four students the best of luck!
We are making a lot of changes to the school grounds in the coming months including new drinking fountains, new smaller seating for the early years classes in the eating area, new basketball hoops and other improvements, we are all looking forward to these things and seeing how much they improve our playground.
The Grade 6 students worked hard last term to be awarded their students leader badges, we are very proud of their improving leadership skills in the playground and in the classroom. Taking on extra responsibilities like the sports equipment every day, running sport activities with the junior students at lunch time, using diaries every day to improve their organisation and accountability in preparation for high school and playing a part in the community ANZAC day parade. These students are a credit to the school and themselves, we are excited to see their continued growth over the coming term.
Our Grade 6 Teaching Assistant and member of the P and C, Miss Kinau Akiba was selected to be the Non-Teaching staff representative on the Student Council. We are very proud of her and know that she will do a great job of representing not only the Top Western Island campuses but all campuses in the college.
Under 8’s Day is happening again and the teachers and teaching assistants are planning and organising exciting activities for students and families. A teddy bear’s picnic, face painting, games and arts and craft are just a small part of the fantastic day.
We have many exciting things happening at our campus and on our Island in the coming term, while these are all happening, our school is still focused on the things we do well, such as attendance, our phonics, spelling, comprehension and reading levels, attending homework club, wearing correct school uniform and our academic results.
We are looking forward to great term and wish all other campuses the same.
