Healthy Habits

The students in Mrs Snodgrass and Miss Bullen’s classes have had lots of fun learning about being healthy and staying healthy. They have looked at ‘safe sneezing’, ‘safe coughing’, washing our bodies and hair, cleaning our teeth, wearing the right clothes for the weather and eating healthy – not too may lollies and sweets!
To showcase what we have discovered and are practising we will be presenting at the assembly to the fantastic song – Mr Clicketty Cane!


Invitation to Robotics Workshop

3 lucky Coffs Harbour Public School students were invited to attend a recent FIRST Australia Robotics Workshop on Saturday at the Coffs Harbour C.Ex Club. Bruce, Nico and Samaneh wrote a submission on what sort of robot they wanted to build and were successful in being selected as well as other local students. By all reports, Bruce, Nico and Samaneh had a wonderful time and were excited to have the opportunity to play with some exciting technology and work as part of a team. What a fantastic experience for them. If you look closely at this NBN News report you may see some familiar faces!



K-1B News

K-1B students have enjoyed visiting TAFE to participate in a range of individualised structured play activities. During our TAFE visits students are able to explore and take turns in many different sensory, motor and practical tasks such as cooking. We are so excited about our upcoming assembly performance “Happy and You Know It” on Thursday 21st June at 2.30pm. Looking forward to seeing you all there!

The students love learning sign language and are doing a beautiful job. Here is a glimpse of their progress…keep it up KG!!

KW’s Dreams…


Exploring great artists in 3/6C and K-6B

This term in visual arts students will view pictures of famous artworks and create their own. So far this term, the students have learnt about and created work by Wassily Kandinsky, Andy Warhol, Morris Louis and Jackson Pollock.

Jackson Pollock Marble Madness

Jackson Pollock (1912-1956) was a famous and controversial American artist best known for his abstract expressionist splatter paintings.

The students worked hard at capturing Pollock’s abstract style in their own Pollock inspired artworks. Well done 3/C and K-6B…your artworks look fantastic!!



5K are out of this world!

This term, 5K are beginning to study ‘Our Solar System’. The students are undertaking research and developing an understanding about our planets and other celestial objects in the Solar System and beyond. Students have already started creating a model of their planet and found many interesting facts already.
