Next Friday, YPCC will be holding our annual Wheel-a-thon day.
It is a great day to celebrate keeping fit and also a great chance to possibly win a new bike, from CycleScape which is in Sturt Street, Ballarat.
For each $10.00 you raise you will receive a raffle ticket to be in the draw to win the bike.
Good luck and be sure to watch out for future posts about the wheel-a-thon.
This week we all took the Multiple Intelligence test to find out what type of smart we are and how we learn best. We found out that we are not all the same. Some of us are sport smart, music smart, some are word smart, picture smart and a few more. What type of smart are you? How do you know?
This coming Friday students from POD 2 have the chance to go to the Regent Cinemas in Ballarat to view the ‘Free Birds’ movie.
In this hilarious, adventurous buddy comedy for audiences of all ages, directed by Jimmy Hayward, two turkeys from opposite sides of the tracks must put aside their differences and team up to travel back in time to change the course of history – and get turkey off the Thanksgiving menu for good.
Over the last few weeks the kids in POD 2 have had a real focus on learning NEW words. Learning new words helps us to extend our vocabulary (the words we use) and helps us with our reading, writing and the way we communicate with others.
This week we played a few games to consolidate the meaning and synonyms for a range of words we have been focussing on. The game was great fun and we hope to have round two this week.
We also took on the role of architect’s and took on the challenge to create building scapes using a key and then drawing the front and side views. Working backwards from the views to develop the key was a bit tricky, but as you can tell by the images below all the kids were having a great attempt at solving the challenge. Keep up the great work!

On Friday our school turned RED! We were raising money for MS and our very own Mr. Guest is going to be running next weekend in the colour run to raise even more money.
Congratulations to all who made the effort and to those who donated, even of they forgot to dress up.
Good luck Mr. Guest.
On Tuesday, December 11, students at our school participated in a whole day transition across our school.
Our Grade 2 students spent a day in POD 2, getting to know their new learning space, new teachers and new POD members for 2013.
We had a great day with students participating in a variety of activities throughout the day with the emphasis on getting to know each other, finding out a little about POD 2 and helping the new students and staff feel a little more comfortable about their move.
There was a great buzz in the POD with a feeling of excitement for 2013. It would be great to know what our students are looking forward to in 2013 as a member of POD 2. Please click on the comment button below and share your thoughts.
