Headphones & Gumboots Reminders

Just some reminders:

In our learning we have been using our Chromebooks for different learning areas. We have been reading and viewing texts online as well as accessing our blog and interactive resources, for example Matific. All students are required to have labelled headphones.

As we have now entered the season of Winter and as we know this type of weather brings about muddy areas around our school grounds. It is essential that all students have labelled gumboots for outside play.

Digital Technology Update!

Since this year began at SMCM, we have been investigating our Digital Technology Policy and User Agreement. We have been learning about the different parts of this policy, unpacked the key words and words we were not sure about. We also discussed what the purpose of this policy is and what are expectations when we are using Digital Technology to help us with our learning.


We will all receive our own Digital Technology Policy and User Agreement that we are going to share with our family. A reminder that once we have read and talked out what it is telling us, we need to tick the boxes and sign to say we understand and agree to comply to it.

We need to bring the whole policy (signed and dated) back to school as soon as possible!

  • Did you learn anything knew about the way we use Digital Technology?
  • Why is it important that we understand our policy?
  • Are there any questions about our policy?
  • Are there any words that you needed to clarify?


Swimming Reminder



Just as a friendly reminder, the middles will be swimming on both

Thursday 15th March and Friday 16th March.

On the 15th March, students will be required to bring an additional pair of shorts and t-shirt to wear over the top of their bathers as part of the Water Safety program.

If you have any questions please contact your homegroup teacher!

Welcome back, Middle School!

Mint, Parsley, Basil, Ginger & Garlic students have made a wonderful start to the school year!

We have been getting to know each other and demonstrating our understanding of the FARM Code, in transitions, learning time, playtime, eating time and when communicating with others.

There are many exciting things to look forward to this term, including swimming lessons and our Inquiry unit, “The Future Is In Our Hands… How can we make a difference?” As part of our Inquiry unit we will be heading out on an excursion to ‘Ceres’ in Brunswick to explore different methods in sustainability.

  • How are you helping your homegroup to create a positive learning environment?
  • How can you use your personal strengths to help yourself and others in the homegroup?
  • What are you looking forward to this year?
  • What do you know about sustainability?
