Rostrum Finals 2018

To end this fantastic month we have had our Rostrum Public Speaking contest school finals.

All students from years 3 - 6 prepared a speech that had to go for a minimum of 2 minutes. After they presented to the class, the teachers chose their two favourite speeches to go on to the grade finals.

On the 31st of May, the school finalists presented their speeches. Congratulations to Wambui Taylor for winning us over with your outstanding speech and well done to Ben Quyen in year 5 for coming second.

Great job to all of the people who got into the school finals and tried their hardest. A very special thanks to Mrs. Owens, Mr. Kennedy, Mr. Graetz and Mrs. La Flamme for judging the speeches.  Good job to all the people that wrote and presented Rostrum speeches, it takes a risk taker to stand up and talk in front of people and everybody gave it their best.

There was great sportsmanship with people congratulating their competitors and cheering EVERYONE on. Congratulations to all the people that finished the race and tried their best. Good luck to all those going to the South Weston carnival on Monday the 4th of June, we hope you represent Red Hill well!

Ride2School Day

An exercise session before school is a great way to get hearts pumping and provide a significant energy boost before engaging in the day’s cognitive challenges.  Finding creative ways to combine exercise and travel to school or work is ideal, and for many of our Red Hill students, a possibility. On Friday 23 March, more than one hundred Red Hill students, teachers and parents signed up for the National Ride2School Day.

 

This is the first year that Red Hill has officially taken part in this community event and it has been pleasing to see the number of participants that joined us.  Given the popularity of this day we are looking at making this a regular Week 7 event. Keep your eyes and ears open for more news on this.

 

A very big thank you to the Fyshwick Fresh Food Markets, TREK bikes and PAF Active for supporting us this morning with an abundance of fresh fruit, bike drink holders, water bottles and a great atmosphere.
