Last Day of Term One – Happy Easter!

Today, Friday 30th March, is the last day of Term One.

The students in 4KM and 4KJ have had a fantastic start to the year and everyone is looking forward to the two week holiday break.


Today was a special day because it was the Leopold Primary School Cross Country. It was held on the school oval and all students from Prep to Grade Six were involved. The students in the 8/9/10 age group had to run a challenging 1.2km route around the school grounds. The 11 years age group had to complete the course twice, running a total of 2.4km.

Here is a bird’s eye view of the route the Grade Three to Six students ran.

It was terrific to see everyone try their very best during the Cross Country. Some special achievements to acknowledge:

Elijah (4KM) won the 8/9/10 boys event.

Hannah (4KJ) won the 11 years girls event.

Becky (4KM) came third in the 11 years girls event.

Participating in the Cross Country and cheering for all of the other students was so much fun.

A big thanks to Mr Hair for organising this terrific school event!


It has been a busy nine weeks for 4KM and 4KJ. We enjoyed practising a variety of reading strategies, focussing on descriptive writing and learning about place value in Maths. Some other highlights include:

– Skyping with Mr Avery and Mrs Yollis

House Athletic Sports

Talking to British adventurer, Alistair Humphreys

Learning about Australia

Reading Day

Quadblogging with Mrs Yollis, Mr Salsich and Mrs McKenzie


We are looking forward to Easter, which falls in the very middle of our holidays. We wish all of our blogging buddies are very Happy Easter! Enjoy some chocolate and have a relaxing break!

We will be back at school for Term Two on Monday 16th April.
