Last Tuesday, 5 teams of Roberts McCubbin students, comprising of 17 students competed at the Robocup State Championships. This year there was a significant increase in the number of teams competing, however for the 4th year in a row, two teams, “Wheels on the bus” and “Jaws” went through to the finals to take out 1st and 3rd places. A fantastic result considering there were 30 teams competing from both the private and government sector. Dylan and Hamish, competing in Riley Rescue also did us proud coming a commendable 6th out of 50 teams! Read More
Thank you to all the students who made the performance such a success. Also a big thank you to Mr Kong and the staff at RMPS and the parents who keep on supporting all the extra activities at the school!
That's a good app!
Ever wondered what the apps on the school app list do?
Well stay tuned!
Over the next few weeks keep an eye out for an explanation about some of the apps that the students use.
It was wonderful to have this very enthusiastic group of 3/4 writers wanting to come and read their stories to me last week. Maddy T, Matthew L, Joyce Y, Scarlett P and Charlotte H had worked diligently with Mrs McNamara who supports literacy through the school, to compose their stories. I was very impressed with their excellent use of vocabulary and descriptive language to engage their audience.
Coping Skills for Children
Starting Skills: Coping Skills for Children
As they grow and develop, all children encounter situations where they feel worried, nervous and sometimes even scared. Starting school involves a big change for your child as they settle into a new environment and begin forming relationships with peers and school staff. Even if your child's transition to school goes smoothly, it is likely that they will encounter some ups and downs throughout their primary school years.
Helping your child to learn coping skills as they start school will allow them to develop and practise skills that will enable them to cope with future changes and challenges.
Watching this video will help you to strengthen your child's mental health and wellbeing now and into the future.
