Starship Foundation - Stars for Starship

Mercury Energy's Stars for Starship Competition

Congratulations Duraiz

On Thursday 16th December Room 3 went to Chipmunks! Why? Because Duraiz's Christmas star won the supreme award in Mercury Energy's Stars for Starship competition in the Year 0-3 category. His star has been hung in a special spot on Starship children's hospital's Christmas tree. The stars are a huge morale boost for patients and staff. It has become a Christmas tradition at Starship. More than 250 schools entered the competition. Duraiz also won $1000 of Scholastic books and a digital camera for the school. Congratulations Duraiz! We had an exciting and energetic day. What a fun way to end the year!

Merry Christmas Lauryn

Lauryn left us a message on our guestbook page so I thought it would be fun to copy it here and the Room 3 children could leave her some comments and messages. I hope she gets them and leaves us some more messages.

Hi Room 3. 

I had an awesome day in the snow today. It was a long plane ride but have had so much fun already. Lots of Christmas lights on the houses at night. I will send photos tomorrow. Miss you all. Hope you are doing lots of Christmas stuff. 

From Lauryn

Happy 7th Birthday to Malin and Piper.

A very big thank you to Malin's very clever mum who made us all a balloon sword, a flower or a caterpillar. They were awesome! What a wonderful surprise!

2nd Annual Potato Festival

On Thursday 2nd December our whole school participated in potato day. As part of our Enviro Schools participation every class started growing their own potatoes during term 3. We watered them and cared for them. On Thursday it was competition time. First we had to decorate our potato container. We added Mr and Mrs Potato Head to ours and we sprinkled magic green glitter onto the soil to give our potatoes a last minute boost! We couldn't wait to find out what was hiding in all that soil. It must have worked because our class won the prize for the overall weight of potatoes!!

There were lots of categories and prizes like the largest potato, smallest potato, funniest potato, best decorated potato and lots more. At lunchtime there were potato sack races, potato throwing contest, potato bake off, find the potatoes, a colouring in competition and you could even buy potatoes. It was a funny and enjoyable day.
