From the window with a view - week 3, term 3 2017


As we completed Week 3 we entered into the exciting days of preparations for the Fair and Open Day. Posters have gone up around our school and local shopping centres, and banners are hanging along highway. Kindy parents came together on Thursday afternoon to create craft resources for their stall, and the buzz was evident. We are now entering into our final countdown before opening the school to our broader community on Saturday 12th August, so let’s enjoy the time together.

From the window with a view - week 2, term 3 2017


In Week 2 we welcomed students and teachers from our sister school, Hangzhou 3rd District Primary School in China. What an exhilarating experience it was for all. From the moment that the visitors walked up the path and across the lawn they commented, ‘this school is a park’. Throughout their stay they were mesmerised by the sound of the cockatoos, the blue of the sky, the quality of air, the fact that classes could be run while sitting on the floor, and that they didn’t need to evacuate when they saw smoke from the fire pit on bush day, or the student run b-b-q lunch. We are now looking forward to our students visiting their school sometime in the future, as the students really enjoyed the friendship and cultural exchanges.[Read More...]

Welcome back to school for the start of Term 3. We hope that you had a joyous time together over the holiday period. This is the final term for our Year 12 students and we offer them our support and confidence as they prepare for their final assessments and exams. Already this week, Year 6 have been to and returned from their four- day camp to Canberra with Amanda and Andrew. No doubt they have exciting stories to tell! Time elapses in a blink so let’s make sure we take a moment to enjoy the weeks that have passed and plan for our coming events.[Read More...]

From the window with a view - week 6, term 2 2017


On Friday afternoon, our Years 1 & 2 children and their teachers returned with spring in their steps after an excursion to the Locomotive Museum at Valley Heights. In grown up fashion, they travelled by train and used individual Opal Cards! Simultaneously, and through another window, the high school co-curricular cooking group were highly animated after preparing and eating a very hot green curry. As it was a cold afternoon, many of us had a tinge of envy! However, we managed to keep warm in Week 6 as winter arrived.

In week 5, and throughout this term, we have been fortunate that our fabulous sports program has not been washed. The sun shone upon us all at the Huff and Puff Gala Day on Tuesday. Whether in primary golf clinic or boxing, cross fit, athletics and skate boarding in high school, the students are being challenged to develop physical skills and thinking routines outside of their regular fields. Kizz has developed a PE program full of variety and fun.

From the window with a view - week 4, term 2 2017


As we end Week 4, Korowal and our connections have had an illustrious week. We were proudly entertained by three of our recent graduates who performed and wrote for the production of ‘Breaking Bread’ at Wentworth falls School of Arts last weekend. Following on from their tertiary drama studies, Jade Fuda, Aeva O’Dea and Olivia O’Flynn have developed into fine professional theatre practitioners. Then this week, the preview of ‘Cul de Sac’ was shown at the Fairmont. Michael Joy, an alumni parent, has been working on this pilot for 3 years. Jas Ryan (Year 11) and Helena Zadro Jones (Year 12), are both in this film. The performances, production, filming, cinematography, design, sound/music, and locations are beautiful, honest and hauntingly evocative. Michael deserves to be pleased as punch! So too do Jas and Helena!
