- we have a Union Jack in the corner of our flag, because we are a colony of Britain,
- the seven pointed star is called the "Federation Star" and it has 7 points, which represent the states and territories of Australia, and
- the group of stars on the right is the Southern Cross which is a special constellation that can be seen in the southern hemisphere, which is where Australia is.
Last year, our school participated in the Coles Sports for Schools programme. Our friends and families collected vouchers when they did their shopping at Coles and then we could spend them on sports equipment. We managed to collect 38,000 vouchers and our order arrived this week! We unpacked it all and took some photos. We feel very lucky to have so many new things and we can't wait to play with it!
As a special treat this afternoon, our class visited the Year 7 classroom. In a few weeks, our school is having a fair and the Year 7s will be having a face-painting stalll. They needed some volunteers to practise on, so Mrs N volunteered us. It was lots of fun!
Love from The Smarties and Mrs N
