Term 2 Ends - 2012

This is the final week of Term 2.  The children are officially 1/2 way through their school year.

The kids had "crazy hair day" at school.  Neo and Zoe got into it.

Copa School's P&C held a mini fete (fair) at the surf club.  It was from 11 - 2pm on Sunday.  Clara volunteered to do face painting, and earned credit through her high school.  Nice!  Tristan won chocolate prizes in a coin toss game at the fete.  Zoe helped me make and hand out popcorn.  Neo went in the bouncy castle 3 times, played the coin toss game, and played with friends.

Saturday was the 5 Lands Walk (MacMasters Beach to Copacabana to Avoca to North Avoca to Terrigal).  Copa school again participated by making art for the event.  Tristan made Icarus.  Zoe made Medusa.  Neo made a gold face.

On Monday 25 June,  I had the honor of driving Tristan and a delightful and accomplished year 6 student (Emma), to the 2012 Multicultural Perspectives Public Speaking Competition.  Tristan and Emma were chosen to represent Copacabana School because of their speaking ability.  The competition comprised of 2 parts: a 3 minute prepared speech, followed by a 1 minute impromptu speech the students had to present 5 minutes after hearing the topic.  There were 6 schools represented.  One winner was selected to go to the next level of competition. Tristan did very well and he looked great :)
We received the school reports from each of our children.  All are doing quite well in school.  We are very proud of their accomplishments.
