Today was a special day as we officially opened the primary Tunnel and Orchid. Special guests from the Credit Union SA, Nat Cook and Barry Temme, joined Caroline Green, staff and very excited students as the ribbons were cut. Our guests were delighted to meet the chooks, including 2 birds new to the REC family. Our sincere thanks to the Credit Union SA and their School Community Rewards program for their ongoing support of our fundraising efforts that help make such wonderful facilities possible.

In Design and Technology this term, our 6/7 classes (Mr Wall, Ms Lush and Ms Read) were given the task of making their own side-show games for Remembrance Day.
“We were put into groups of four or five. In our groups we were required to discuss possible game choices and skills required for our games. To help us choose we discussed The Royal Adelaide show games and researched how these games worked and whether or not they were effective.
Once we had planned and designed our games, we moved on to creating our games. We used recycled boxes and used whatever sources were available at the time. Once we had created our masterpieces, we tested them out with other upper primary classes. They were all effective and fun to play. We then had to evaluate our games by developing an investigation on how we worked as a group and if the game was effective.
Remembrance Day finally came around and we set up our games up under the cola in front of the McClure unit. All funds raised by our games went towards the establishing Nature Play spaces within the school, creating a great, fun atmosphere for the day.”

Congratulations to the year 12 Child Studies class, who collected over 30kg of Vegemite and raised $115.40 for the ‘Kickstart for Kids’ initiative. Ian Steel (Founder) from Kickstart for Kids came to talk with the year 12 students about his program and how it helps kids throughout South Australia. Kickstart For Kids provides breakfast and lunch programs along with a mentoring program for South Australian schools. Kickstart for Kids currently provides breakfasts and lunches to 200 schools in the north, south and western areas of Adelaide. Presently, they are providing 35,000 breakfasts per week! This is amazing, so to get behind them be sure to visit their website at – http://kickstartforkids.com.au/Read More
During week 8 of term 3 (07/09- 11/09), an assignment done by the year 12 Child Studies class helped to raise awareness for a children’s charity called ‘KickStart for Kids’.
This charity provides sandwiches and breakfast for children in South Australia that go to school without having any food in their stomach, or lunch in their lunchboxes. This non- profit charity makes over 5,000 sandwiches per week to give to these children. These sandwiches are mainly vegemite or vegemite and cheese, however vegemite is quite an expensive spread to buy and often is not donated. As a team we organised a ‘Vegemite drive’ for the whole school to participate in. Both primary and secondary schools were involved in this.
During this week, there were over 45 jars donated, which added up too almost 23kg of vegemite ( a value of over $300), which is absolutely incredible!
Thank you to everyone who donated! Your donations were greatly appreciated.
