Book Week Bookmark Competition Winners

During Book Week we ran a competition for students to design a bookmark that illustrated what they love about reading. We were so impressed with the wonderful designs that the students submitted, which made it very hard to choose our winners. However, we managed to narrow it down and would like to congratulate our two infants and four primary students who have won the competition. They will receive a prize, and their bookmarks will be printed and available in the Library for students, staff and parents to take and use.

Congratulations to Jimmy (1T), Asher (2R), Nick and Ryder (4J), Terence (5B), Felix (5B) and Owen (6J) for your creative, award winning designs.

PYP ‘Attributes of the Learner Profile’ Display

Our current PYP Learner Profile display is for the attribute of Thinkers. According to the IB, if we are communicators ‘we use critical and creative thinking skills to analyse and take responsible action on complex problems. We exercise initiative in making reasoned, ethical decisions.’

This display shares books about people who have embodied this characteristic throughout their lives, including Stephen Hawking and Ada Lovelace.

We also have a section in the display where students are encouraged to record the name of someone they know who demonstrates this learner profile attribute. We invite you to participate in this discussion by chatting to your son/s about what being a good thinker looks, sounds and feels like, and sharing with them someone you admire who shows the attribute of being a good thinker, or a time when you have had to be a thinker yourself.
