Book Week fun at REC. Dress up day is always a day of fun and excitement for the students and staff alike.
We’re pleased to present our first edition of In Focus. A publication designed to share new learning initiatives and programs, and strengthen connections between school and home. Edition 1 has a focus on developing environmental sustainability at REC. We hope you enjoy it.
Our junior primary students are enjoying the ‘Ride-a-Bike Right’ bike education program here at school. Over terms 2 and 3 all JP classes will experience 4 x 1 hour sessions learning to go from training wheels to two wheels on a bikes. The students pictured with instructor Lee-Anne are learning to balance a bike (without pedals) before they move on to bike with pedals. Now watch their confidence soar at home on their own bikes!

Last Thursday 1st June, our 2017 Arts Showcase was presented to the community at the Hopgood Theatre. Highlights were the wonderful dance on display from primary and secondary students, our beautiful choirs and polished band, stunning vocal soloists including Year 6 Jayden P who has confidence beyond his years and Year 7 drummer Noah M who is performing at Year 12 standard. We also saw some innovation with hip hop dancer Vipop C interacting with a robot on stage, thought provoking short films and vibrant art works on display.
We were incredibly proud of how our students and staff all worked together to put on a great show. Thank you for the feedback from our audience sharing that they “felt humbled to be a part of the experience”.
Today we took the next steps towards Reconciliation with a wonderful festival held in the Rob Mutton courtyard. Students from Preschool to Year 12 had the opportunity to share in the experience, whilst having a wonderfully fun day in the sun.
In Science our Year 2/3 students have learnt about shelter; a basic need for all living things, and in History we have discussed how the Aboriginal people lived in Australia hundreds of years ago and connected closely with the environment. In our Technology lessons, students worked in pairs to design, built and test their own models of Aboriginal shelters, that were made from natural materials found in the environment.
