in the world
When the world is safe from war
No more shooting
Nature and animals living in green
- green is peace.
No more guns
Nice and quiet
And nothing violent
We use thankful language
When all the world stops the war, then
we can have quiet
When all the world stops fighting then
there is peace
It starts with each different person in the
whole world…...we have to be peaceful
By talking nicely
Saying thank you
Feeling loving to nature and people
It’s asking, “Are you o.k.?”
It's being kind to others everyday
Remember - friendship and kindness.

Relaxing when you are alone
Closing your eyes and feeling
Having fun playing wit h friends
No fighting, fighting can hurt
You can’t shoot people, or they
In the war some Mums, Dads
and children can die
It would feel sad for everybody
There shouldn’t be war ever
Peace is feeling happy inside deep down inside your body
You can share peace by giving a
smile, sharing a laugh
Peace is looking after each other
Peace is looking after everyone
in the whole wide world.
SRC Report: Run for Fun:
Be active committee
The Be-Active committee led by Matthew Horsnell and
Callum Gaspari have been organising the Run for Fun
around Sout h Australia with Mrs Rose, Miss Briggs and
Mr Hudson. The events are held Monday and Friday
mornings from 8:30 –8:45am and Wednesday lunch
times on the JP oval.
We are really pleased with the turn out and the
adults and toddlers receive two pop sticks per lap for their child/siblings
house team. Matthew and Callum would like some more helpers for handing out the pop
amount of students, parents and teachers taking part is increasing each week.
sticks, so parents/carers/senior students please volunteer.
Only last week in the Sunday mail it was reported that Sout h Australian students are not
doing enough daily exercise so let’s get as many people out there walking/running for fun.
A big thank you to Miss Alison Briggs for offering to supervise the Friday morning session.
This was due to her class enjoying it so much and seeing the importance of keeping fit.
CASUAL DAY THIS FRIDAY—footy/sport colours:
This Friday’s casual day is to raise money for our sponsor child Seiha
Sam from Cambodia, we need to raise $480 to cover our yearly
sponsorship fee. This money makes a real difference to not only Seiha
but all the children living in the Sunrise Children’s village. It improves
their educational, health and wellbeing outcomes. Every dollar goes
along way in Cambodia so please dig deep and come in casual clothes and show your
favourite teams colours. If every student donated $2 each for casual day we will not
only hit our target but exceed all our expectations and be able to raise money for our
school as well.
Play Program: Peer Support/Play program committee.
Once a week a team of senior students led by Olivia Smitheram and Danika Hewick offer an
alternative lunchtime activity in the drama room for students to participate in. They set up
various activities and music for the students to play with and provide support with positive
play. Tuesday is for early years students and Fridays is for primary and mi ddle year
students. Numbers are restricted for safety reasons, so it is a first
come basis. If you haven’t attended please come and have a fun time.
The play program and the run for fun will be continuing into term 4.

On Thursday 15t h September GLA9 & GLA10 went on an excursion to the Migration Museum.
Students were provi ded with a booklet. In small groups, students needed to locate animals and
read information about them in order to discover answers. Students were asked to dress in
19th Century school attire. They were able to explore the Migration Museum to discover who
the first people to migrate to Australia were and why they may have wanted to migrate to S.A.
They also learnt what meals children ate and the toys and games children played with.
Everyone had a great time.
