Term 4 Senior Unit Newsletter

On Friday December 9th , the Senior Unit will be heading out on their excursion ‘Maths in the City’. The day is aimed at using the skills learnt in the classroom about mathematics and putting the skills into practice in the real world. It should be a fun and exciting day for everyone and really promote the students independence as they navigate and communicate with their team about how to approach the tasks. Students will travel in teams of 56 accompanied by either a teacher or parent helper on the day. A note has gone home and we need enough parents to volunteer for the day to make sure the day can run. Teams with their budgets must also shout their helper lunch and coffee so c’mon parents jump in and have a fun day with us!
