On Friday the 4th of March all of the grade 3-6s went to the football grounds to compete in the field events (long jump, shot put and vortex) and the 800 meters running. We moved around in Grade groups to compete in each event. Lots of people won ribbons and everyone tried their best. Thank you to al of the teachers and parents that helped with the different activities. It was a fun afternoon!
On Monday the 7th of March, 2016 the primary classes (3-6) went over to the Longford football grounds, for our annual athletics carnival.
All the students tried their best to get a place and have fun. A special thanks to Mrs Scott and Mr Tantari for their outstanding work in running the carnival and our KMHS students who came along to help. Lots of students won a ribbons and stickers, but a huge congrats to these people from our class who made it to the Northern Midlands.

What do you enjoy most about the Athletics Carnival?
To begin the new year in 4/5 Farran we did an activity on mason jar pictures with information about ourselves. For example age, grade, about our family, what we want to be when we get older, our full name, favourite colour, food and more.
We also had a chance to share about our holidays with the class and then write and draw about it.
We created some Art where we had to draw a picture of our holidays in some glasses. On an A4 piece of paper we drew a portrait of ourselves and when we finished the glasses we glued the glasses onto our portrait.
I think they look really cool.

What are some our your favourite things?
On Friday the 11th of March our school hosted a Pink Stumps Day. Pink Stumps Day is where you wear pink and raise money to support the McGrath Foundation. The McGrath foundation is a Breast Cancer Support. They raise money to employ more breast care nurses for women recovering from breast cancer. Our School supported it by wearing pink and having a Staff v Students cricket match and Cricket based activities. This year we raised $460.06 which means we beat the amount we raised last year ($317)! Thankyou to everyone who helped out with organising Pink Stumps day. A special thank you to Mr Tantari for the cricket activities, the Grade 6 Daily Fitness Leaders for the running of the activities and to Mrs Farran for organising the whole day. Also a huge thankyou to everyone who supported such and important cause by wearing pink and making a donation.

On the 10th of March Thursday Grade 5 students from Longford Primary School went to Prospect High School for a Science Discovery Day. Seven different schools attended the day to compete against each other. The maths and science based activities were called Earthquake, String Along, Eco House, Get a Grip, Minipult, Get Over it, ElectraCity and Mars Buggy. Some of the activities were hard as well as fun and some were just fun. Our school won two of the activities for the day (Get over it and Minipult). At the end of the day scores were close but the school that won was Hagley. A big thank you to the University of Newcastle for organising the fun day we had and to Prospect High for hosting it.
It was a great day and we hope we can attend next year.
