Thank you to Mt Hawthorn for having one of their teachers attend the first Professional Learning to use the Old Schoolhouse. We look forward to that teacher bringing lots of student through in the near future. If you could not attend the first workshop, watch this space and Connect and Twitter and Facebook for the next PL date in Term 4. Come along and learn how to use the Old Schoolhouse for your next excursion! CONGRATULATIONS Kaye Ward for being the First Teacher to be allowed to bring their class through their Old Schoolhouse! We look forward to seeing you soon!

There has been a change in when schools are required to report in History. This change is due to not all of the Humanities and Social Science components have been develop as yet. Please go to http://k10outline.scsa.wa.edu.au/Reporting_policy/Requirements  to read about the reporting requirements for HASS. Please read the information under the heading Reporting learning area achievement using the Australian Curriculum.

That's all for now!
