Academic Philosophy

Academic Philosophy

Work Hard: In school, smart kids do not always finish first.  It often comes down to commitment and hard work.  So we encourage students to remember to work hard.

Infuse Urgency: Most students only work hard a few days before a piece of work is due because that is when it becomes urgent.  We teach our students to break work up into smaller pieces, infuse urgency into the small tasks and get the work done on time.

Never Give Up: Courage is not the absence of trials, it is the conquest of them.  Winners are those who push through when times are tough, when everyone else is giving up.  That is when success is the sweetest, so we encourage our students to never give up.

 

 

 

Primary Goings On

Artist of the Fortnight

Hi my name is Tahlia Campbell.

I’m in Year 5V and my teacher is Mr Lee. I started at ACBC in Year 4, the first week of Term Two in 2017. Before that I was at St Josephs Primary.

When I am older I would like to become a Veterinarian. My Favourite animals are ponies.

Outside of school I like to draw and watch TV. Outside I enjoy playing with my dog, Bobby.

At school I really enjoy Mrs Orr’s Art lessons and ICT.

My favourite colour is Purple, but I don’t know why - I just love it.

Principal’s Comment: Because it’s a Dockers Colour!!!

 

Pancake Friday

Thank you to everyone who participated in Pancake Day on Friday, 16 February. Mr Newby, the Year 6 Captains, Ms Templeman Twells and Mr Haugh spent the morning cooking pancakes and serving them to the classes. Mr Newby’s comment was how well the Captains worked together and served the school pancakes all morning. He was very impressed with their work effort.

We celebrate Pancake Day as a school to commemorate Shrove Tuesday, the start of the Lent period in the lead up to Easter.
