“Familiarity breeds contempt”. I have always thought that this is a harsh saying. Contempt is a strong word. However, I have also found that there is a lot of truth in this. At the very least, familiarity often leads us to take things for granted. At the very worst, we can ignore or become blind to the things that are right in front of us. It seems like the more we know something, the more…

2016 NAPLAN Results: Year 7 and Year 9

It is always important to keep NAPLAN results in perspective. They provide useful feedback for teachers, as they indicate the strengths and weaknesses of students and allow them to focus on areas that need improvement.

No matter how good the results are (or the reverse), it must be…

Rube Goldberg and the LEX@R Kids

Who is Rube Goldberg, you may ask? Goldberg was a cartoonist in the 1930s and 40s, famous for “inventing” complicated machines designed to do extremely simple tasks. His cartoon drawings were popular in newspapers and the game Mousetrap is a good example of a Rube Goldberg machine.

Year 5-6 Learning Extension (LEX@R) students have been learning about work and simple machines. We have examined God’s plan for work, as well…

Year 10 Work Experience

The Year 10 Work Experience program was a resounding success again this year. The comments from employers were, on the whole, the best we’ve had.

Most of the students had a wonderful experience at a large variety of different workplaces. I would like to thank the students for their excellent conduct and courteous behaviour, and their…

Togas, Music, Food, Dancing, and the Olympics

In Wilson Pre-Primary Red we have been learning about the world’s most spectacular sporting event – the Olympic Games – which are about to start in Rio.

We have been investigating why and how the ancient games started and why we have them today as the Modern Olympics. We brainstormed ideas and posed many ‘I Wonder’ questions. We made suggestions about the things we wanted to do and know. We wondered why the Olympic…

Keep Your Heart with All Diligence

The story of the journey that the people of Israel took fleeing from Egypt, crossing the Red Sea, crossing the desert, and wandering for 40 years is retold a number of times in the Old Testament.
