[11/03/20] As the Catholic Church has honoured Saints and Souls over the weekend, our Community Mass this morning id dedicated to those in our community who have gone to God. If you are joining us, please write the name of a loved one you would like remembered in the comments of the live event. Eternal rest grant unto to them O Lord; and let light perpetual shine upon then. May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God Rest in Peace.
The Year 12s went to a huge effort for the highly anticipated Costume Parade. We were pleased to be able to live stream the parade to our classrooms and into the homes of the Year 12 students.
Here is the link to the recording of the Costume Parade.
Our Year 12s have had some great days at school this week. Yesterday was their last full day with uniform signing and House farewells taking place. Today they returned for a final morning, celebrating with breakfast together prior to the much anticipated Costume Parade.
We are proud of the way the Class of 2020 has risen to the challenges of the year and wish them all the best.
There's maths everywhere!
Angles, coordinates, quantities, shapes, lengths, weights, distance and codes.
Our primary students have been involved in maths challenges involving counting, finding shapes, measuring and coding to name a few.
Today is Maths @Marymede Day in our primary school.
Already the year Prep-2 students have begun thinking about the Jellybean Challenge using estimation. All students in Prep – 2 will have chance to put in their estimate of the jellybeans in the jar by Friday. There will be a prize in each class of a Maths Through Stories book with winners announced on Wednesday, 4 November.
Estimation in maths is more than a guess. Benchmarking to tens and hundreds is useful to develop in our students to help with estimation. Estimation is a life skill that helps us to think about the money we might spend, the size of a crowd, the number of chairs that will fit in a space. It does not give us an exact number, but it helps us to think about the world around us.
I wonder what you would guess for the number of jellybeans in the jar?
