Dear Parents and Caregivers,
It was a pleasure to observe our Yr 3-7 students performing at the Capri Theatre for our annual Dance Night. This year Kelly Bodger, our dance teacher, creatively put together a range of dances around the theme of iconic Art pieces. Congratulations to our creative Yr 7 students who cleverly pieced the dances together with an entertaining script. It was great to see the skills showcased by our Jump Rope team and we thank Sue Matthews for capably coaching this team. Congratulations also to Stacey Stutterd for the work that she has done with the primary choir and the Festival of Music choir. Thanks again to all the people who helped to make this night a success.
Next week our Yr 5 students will showcase their collaborative learning through the IBPYP Exhibition. Students have been working really hard in their group to explore issues relating to "Sharing the planet". Juli Bryan, Tanya Taylor and Sara Harris, as well as families, have guided students through this process which includes posing questions, research, visiting experts, seeking feedback and creatively sharing new understandings to engage an audience. We look forward to hearing about their learning next week.
Similarly our Yr 6 & 7 students have been working on a IBMYP 'Student Initiated Project" where they have identified a problem to solve and used design thinking to formulate and develop a solution. They too will have the opportunity to share the process they used to develop a product of personal relevance, next week. Thanks to Eve Hooper, Kylie Mueller, Thyrza Veitch and Vanessa Hiser for supporting students to prepare for this showcase of learning.
Remembrance day is an important day that is commemorated around the world, in our local community and also in the school community. Last Monday Juli Bryan attended a commemoration service at the Soldiers Memorial in Blackwood. I would like to thank Sam D and Megan M who proudly lay a wreath on behalf of our school community. Thanks to students from Ms Hiser's class who made the wreaths.
Our SRC leaders, Lachlan, Sebastian, Alana, Indi, Sam and Nathan conducted a service at our school on Monday which included all students assembling in the amphitheatre to reflect and show their respect.
Thanks everyone for buying the poppies for Remembrance Day 2019!! (and to Karen in the front office for organising them!).
We raised $163.60 for the Mitcham RSL
A great effort by the Coromandel Valley Primary School community!!

This year, members of our school community participated in Children’s University which has been a great opportunity for students to continue building successful habits of learning outside of their classroom.
On Monday of week 5, our 2019 graduates attended their Graduation Ceremony held at Bonython Hall in the city along with a number of other participating schools. Our graduating Students from Yr 3-6 collected learning hours in their passport while engaging in a wide variety of learning experiences outside school hours. Students were joined by families and friends to help celebrate their learning and achievement. Thank you to all of those people who have supported this terrific initiative and who have contributed to its success.
Congratulations to our graduating students for 2019.

Dear Staff, Parents / Caregivers and community
“BYOD is the shortest path to student centred learning.” - Terry Heick
A survey of classes has shown that 80 percent of Year 3-7 students bring a device to use at school to support their learning. This means these students can have a greater choice in how and where they learn, and how they share their learning with others. It also means there is 80 precent more access for the other students to access existing digital devices at school.
You are invited on

In the staffroom at 5:45pm when
