In ECE7 and ECE8 we have been working on a Technology and Enterprise project to save Humpty Dumpty from breaking when he falls off the wall. First we looked at different kinds of materials, like paper, bubble wrap, cotton balls and ribbon. Then we chose some materials and made a plan of how we would use them. We drew a picture of our design to save Humpty Dumpty. Then we made our safety “clothes” for Humpty Dumpty and tested it by pushing him off a wall! Some of our eggs did not crack but some were smashed to pieces. We discovered that bubble wrap when sticky taped to the egg worked really well.

Students and staff at Kununurra District High School are currently making paper cranes to show our love and support for Alyssa. For those who have only recently joined us, seven year old Alyssa is suffering from DIPG – an inoperable and terminal brain tumor. She was diagnosed in April last year and has been amazingly strong throughout this ordeal. When she comes back to school she will be in Miss Moore’s year two class. We are hoping to make 1,000 paper cranes in the spirit of the story, Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes. Cranes can be handed in at the front desk and will then be posted to Alyssa and her family in Perth.
Thank you to Miss Kyna and her lovely year two students who made one of the first batches of cranes.
Congratulations to Daniel Renowden for winning the Big Barra Award and Kai Clucas for winning the Shining Star Award today. Well done to both of you!! Both from Pre Primary at Kununurra District High School.
In ECE8 at Kununurra District High School we have been busy doing some cooking. This week we made scones and last week we popped some popcorn. We are counting, measuring and learning about science in action every time we do cooking. And it is also delicious!
Congratulations to all the students who received certificates of recognition this morning. Two awards were presented in each category. The first was for Outstanding Book Presentation. The second award was part of Kununurra District Highs PBL Programme, this fortnight classes have focused on coming to school prepared for lessons. Congratulations to the above students, keep up the excellent work!
This week all Pre Primary students at Kununurra District High School were presented with a school hat as a welcome to KDHS. These hats stay at school and hopefully will follow the student into Year 1 next year and then Year 2 and so on. Thanks to Mrs Rapanaro’s class for modelling them!
On Wednesday, 12th December, the ECE students at Kununurra District High School had their end-of-year concert. All of the children did a fantastic job and really enjoyed the experience of being on stage. There was a special appearance by Father Christmas who gave out presents to all the children.
Thank you to everyone who contributed to the day including Mr Kim, Miss Sherie and Mr Bowles on lights and music, Miss Linda for making our banner and all the teachers and assistants who did such a great job preparing the students for their performance. Thanks to all the parents and family members who came to support the Pre-primary’s and Kindys on the day.
In ECE8 at Kununurra Distict High School, we have been reading the story “How the Kangaroos got their Tails”. This is a really fantastic story with great artwork. Last week we made our own mural of this story and it is displayed in our classroom – please come down and have a look. Miss Mandy also came to visit us with some of the baby kangaroos that she looks after. It was really interesting and we learned a lot about kangaroos and wallabies. Thanks so much Miss Mandy!
