Today was an exciting day for 4KM and 4KJ as it was the Awards Ceremony for the worldwide Edublog Awards.
We were honoured to be shortlisted out of hundreds of nominations in many different categories.
Many students stayed in at recess and watched the ceremony on the interactive whiteboard at 11am. There were some fabulous results for 4KM, 4KJ and their friends. The top five in each category were recognised.
Best Class Blog
We came THIRD out of the shortlisted 34 blogs! Mrs Yollis’ Classroom Blog came FIRST. Congratulations to our blogging buddies.
This is the second year we have placed in the top five. What an honour.
Best Teacher Blog
Mrs Morris was thrilled to come FOURTH in this competitive category. This is the first time her teacher blog has ranked in the top five.
Other Great Results
Many of our blogging buddies also experienced excellent results to recognise the fabulous work that they do with educational blogging.
Mrs Yollis and her class came SECOND in the Most Influential Blog Post category and her former student, Jaden, WON two categories.
Mr Avery and his class came THIRD in the Best Use of Media/Video category.
Mrs Hembree and her students came THIRD in the Best Librarian/Library category.

All of our blogging friends, teachers, students and classes are winners in our eyes.
This year, 4KM and 4KJ have discovered how blogging can help us improve and grow in so many ways. While awards are nice, we all know that personal improvement is what counts. This is something we have definitely won!
