Enrichment

Term 3

This term the Year Three and Four Enrichment students have been working on creating their own stop motion animation. Stop motion is the most basic form of animation, where a set of still photos, played in a rapid sequence, creates the illusion of movement. This follows the same basic principle of a flip book.

The students have been working in small groups to create a 15 second story. I know it doesn’t sound long but to create a 15 second story, it will take 150 photos, hundreds of re-shoots and a lot of persistence and patience.
We have looked at a variety of existing stop motion animations, picture books and used our amazing imaginations to get ideas for creating these stories. We look forward to being able to share them on the web page at the end of the term.

Anzac Day goes beyond the anniversary of the landing on Gallipoli in 1915. It is the day on which we remember all Australians who served and died in wa ande those on operational sevice. The spirit of Anzac, with its qualities of courage, mateship, and sacrifice, continues to have meaning and relevvance for our sense of national identity.

Yesterday the Year One Class led our ANZAC Day Ceremony. It was a beautifully organised, reverent and thoughtful event, thanks to all the effort put in by Mrs Gundry and Mrs White. We were very fortunate to have two veterans, Chris and Steve, attend from the local RSL Club to make our ANZAC Ceremony even more special. Thank you to Fr Gayan for his support as well.
