Numero Challenge

On Monday 31st October, some of our brightest Numero players in Year 6, and some budding champs from Year 5, travelled to Anzac Terrace Primary School to participate in the interschool Numero Challenge. Congratulations to our students for representing Duncraig Primary School so admirably. The top team came in at 4th Place and a number of impottant challenges were won during the day. Special thanks go to Mrs Jones, who runs the Numero Club each Thursday morning before school and has coached the students throughout the year.

Choir Performance

Our senior choir students have been busy lately, with a performance at last weekend’s Wanneroo Festival, and now preparing for a performance at the Remembrance Service on Friday 11th November at the City of Joondalup service. Thank you to Mrs Ruscoe who has been working with our students, providing opportunities for our choir students to perform for audiences.

Maths Competition Results

Earlier in Term 3, students from Years 3-6 participated in the Australian Maths Competition. There has been a hold-up in the results and certificates getting back to us, however, we have received a report that identifies our top performers across the year levels. Congratulations to the following students. Certificates and full results are expected soon and will be sent home with students.

Canteen Appreciation Day

Today, Friday 4 November, is Canteen Appreciation Day. Our students collaborated during the week to colour a bouquet of flowers for Amelia and her canteen volunteers. Thank you to Amelia and her group of volunteers who keep the students fed with a good variety of yummy food.

Assembly Super Stars

We’ve had two assemblies in the past two weeks, due to the disruption of swimming lessons. Our Week 3 Assembly was led by Rooms 12 and 8, who took us on a walk down memory lane looking at technology as it has changed since its inception. It certainly made me feel old! It was a very entertaining and informative presentation, and the students presented beautifully.

This week, our Pre-primary students from Room 16 wowed us with their reading and reciting as they presented ‘Room on a Broom’. It was joy to see such confident speakers. Well done Room 16!

Here are our Assembly Super Stars from the past two assemblies.
