Farewell, Mrs Morris!

Today is the last day of Term Two. It is also the last day of school for Mrs Morris, as she is expecting a baby girl in a few weeks!

Mrs Morris has been teaching at Leopold Primary School for nine and a half years and she has made a big impact on many students and teachers during that time. Mrs Morris has also made many connections with teachers and students from around the world through blogging collaborations. She is now looking forward to the new adventure of motherhood!

Mrs Morris and her husband, Nate, are very excited about the birth of their first child. To farewell Mrs Morris, we held a class party at school yesterday. Everyone enjoyed the activities, games and party food, and Mrs Morris had fun sharing this special time with 4KM and 4KJ.

 

Miss Jordan asked some of Mrs Morris’s blogging buddies to record messages on this VoiceThread. Others are welcome to contribute too!

Here is a special message from Mrs Morris.

We welcome Mr Bao to Leopold Primary School as he takes over 4KM for the remainder of 2013.

Miss Jordan, 4KM, 4KJ and everyone at Leopold Primary School will miss you, Mrs Morris! We can’t wait to meet your baby girl!

*****

We are all looking forward to a two week holiday after a very busy eleven weeks at school!

Term Three begins on Monday 15th July.

Swap It, Don’t Stop It!

4KM and 4KJ are enjoying our new term topic, Healthy Choices.

Last week we learnt about an Australian government initiative called the Dietary Guidelines for Children and Adolescents in Australia. We know it is important to eat a balanced diet with foods from all of the different food groups.

Yesterday we learnt about another campaign the Australian government is running. Swap It, Don’t Stop It is a national program aimed to help Australians make healthy food and exercise swaps.

It’s all about swapping some of the things you do now with healthier choices.

The Swap It, Don’t Stop It website has a lot of excellent advice about making healthy choices.
