June Whole College Assembly


The June Whole College Assembly agenda was indicative of the range of experiences and learning that students have undertaken during Term Two.

The Featherbrook Award was presented to Akshadha from 2G and Arthur from 56B. Ms Juanillio and Mr Ellis proudly told the assembled audience of the ways that these students demonstrate college values every day in their learning and interactions with others.

Student Leaders who were presented with their badges at the Year 3-8 Assembly last week were recognised with a group photo.

Amelia 7A (playing Brook) and Zuni 5/6C (playing Feather) in the up and coming Featherbrook’s Got Talent gave the audience a taste of what is yet to come. The whole cast has been busy in rehearsals as they bring Featherbrook’s Got Talent to life! An important announcement was also made ‘Featherbrook’s Got Talent will be showing for one night only at the Wyndham Cultural Centre on Thursday the 10th of October at 7pm.’ Please put this date in your diaries!

Jitesh and Sachi made a presentation about the importance of paper recycling. This is something that students and staff alike are focussing on at the moment in our drive to achieve Five Star Sustainability.

Guitar students Ayush, Avya, Sid and Viraj from year 3/4 entertained us with an instrumental tune ‘He’s a Pirate’ from Pirates of the Caribbean. These students have been taking guitar lessons with Eddie from PMI (Primary Music Institute). Their team effort clearly demonstrated the value of collaboration.

Hadley and Katrina along with other students from years 5 and 6 shared their artwork and learning from the recent Indigenous History and Dream Time Stories Incursion. This experienced assisted the students to deepen their thinking about the Essential Question: How has the past influenced our lives today? as they explored the Inquiry throughline of Ancestry.

The final token weigh in of the term took place to finish the assembly. Students from all houses are to be congratulated for demonstrating behaviours from the SWPBS Matrix in order to be awarded tokens. The margin between each house was close with less than 300 grams between first and fourth.

We wish the whole college community a happy holiday and look forward to when school resumes for Term Three on Tuesday 16th July.
