Welcome to Term 4. This is a very special time for our Year 6 students, as they prepare to leave us at the end of the year. We wish these students and any other students leaving us this year, a wonderful Term 4.
In Week 10 of Term 3, Year 5 and 6 Japanese students participated in the annual Albany Creek Schools’ Cluster Japanese Speaking Competition. Our participants from Year 5 were Hannah, Emily, Sophia and Taylor. For their first year as Japanese language learner’s they did a great job representing All Saints. Our Year 6 competitors were Emily, Emily B, Tineka, Rhianna, Thiana , Sami and Lucy . Thanks girls for representing All Saints Japanese and I’m sure the opportunity for public speaking was a good learning experience for you all. Well done for having a go!
I once again thank Yoshie, our All Saints Japanese mum, who has now volunteered her expertise as speech checker and as judge in the competition for the 5th year running. We appreciate your help and are thankful for the generosity of the Japanese mums and volunteers in our local school communities that help us out each year.
Well done to all involved and thanks to Albany Creek State School for hosting this year,
