ANZAC Day March

What an amazing turnout for the Bribie Island ANZAC Day parade - participants and spectators! So proud of all Banksia Beach students who made the effort to march today, especially those in the marching band. Gosh they are awesome!


Seven steps - Plan for success!

Wednesday, April 13, 2016

Today we were 'planning for success' in writing by coming up with ideas relating to a prompt. Each student had a different category (main character, setting etc) and had to think of as many ideas as they could in 5 minutes. Students were then put in groups and had to come up with a plot outline using one of each of their ideas.

This session was noisy! But as I wandered the room, I could hear nothing but students creating, negotiating and reasoning.
