Last week and this week our class have received our medals for both the Premiers Be Active and the Reading Challenges.
For a lot of us this was the first year that we participated in the Premiers Be Active Challenge. Please see previous post here for more info. Everyone managed to undertake 60 minutes a day, 5 days a week for 4 weeks. Staying active is very important and it was great to see everyone being active not only during the 4 weeks but across the entire year! Some of us received a bronze medal if it was our first year completing the challenge and others received a silver medal. Grange Primary school is going to continue to participate in the Premiers Be Active Challenge in the future so everyone has a chance to complete the challenge next year and receive the next medal!
Every year at Grange Primary School we participate in the Premiers Reading Challenge. This challenge involves students reading 12 books with 8 of those books being Premiers Reading Challenge books. Most of us completed this challenge by Term 3 which was terrific! For a lot of us this was our 5th year completing this challenge. Grange Primary school accomplished an outstanding achievement this year as we had 100% of students complete the challenge! Considering there is over 700 students in our school that is a massive achievement and something that the school and local community should be very proud of. Due to this achievement we are now 1 of 55 schools in the state that have been chosen to attend the Premiers Reception where the Premier and Minister will attend and recognize and celebrate all the schools that achieved an outstanding result from the challenge. Ms Sweeney and some students from Grange Primary School have been selected to attend this reception on behalf of the school.
Our school held a special Assembly on Wednesday to acknowledge everyone who participated and we all received our medals! Those students who completed the challenge for 5 years received a champion medal whilst others received a gold medal for completing the challenge for 4 years. It was fantastic to see some upper primary students enter into the Hall of Fame and they received a special medal for their achievements. This is something that we can all strive to achieve one day.
Well done Room 10 and Grange Primary. We can now all add our medals to a special place at home and look forward to next years challenges!
