Atwell Kindergarten teachers hosted their annual Pirate Day event last week. The children and teachers had an exciting day, dressing up as pirates and attending a multitude of fun indoor and outdoor activities. The pirates banded together under the Atwell Tree for a hearty lunch before going on a hunt to find buried treasure, and then finally, sharing the booty among the crew at the end of a very busy day.
Last Wednesday the annual Atwell Kindy Fun Sports Carnival proved once again to be a popular event. The day began with the children marching out in teams to be greeted enthusiastically by the spectator families. The Kindy children participated in The Bear Hunt Obstacle Course, The Humpty Dumpty Egg and Spoon Relay, The Kindy Cup Horse Race and the Gingerbread Man Running Races. The Kindy parents also got into the spirit of the day by running in the energetic and very competitive Roll Out the Barrel Relays.
Our Deputy, Mr Jones once again did an excellent job announcing the events and our Principal Mr Doherty made his debut at Kindy Sports Day as our official starter. Claire Zappa and Shayne, our school chaplain helped out with tricky situations on the track or in the bays . The very capable Year 6 Faction Captains found their inner Kindy child and joined in the races whenever they had the chance. All this coupled with a glorious spring day made it an enjoyable and memorable event for everyone.
This year the Kindy classes each chose a book to study in the lead up to Book Week. At school, the children were engaged in various creative activities linked to their book, including decorating a door to illustrate the text. The children, dressed as characters from their book, paraded on the bike track and went to different areas of the school to show off their costumes to their peers and teachers. A great day was had by all. The Kindy Team would like to thank our families for their efforts to create such a range of delightful costumes. The children looked amazing.
