Kerr Wins Sports Day 2023
Thursday 9th March was a fun filled day. Students and families joined in the spirit of the occasion and dressed in team colours to bring a sense of joy and celebration to the proceedings as the Team Captains and Vice Captains encouraged students to join in team chants and play with enthusiasm, fairness and positive sporting skills. Thanks to everyone for participating so well, especially family members who supported the day as visitors or helpful volunteers.
Tips for Parents to help their Children with Maths
Parents can support their child’s maths development at home in a variety of ways without being a ‘maths teacher.’ To encourage your child:
1. Make maths fun: Incorporate maths into everyday activities, such as cooking, shopping, and games. This will help children see the practical side of maths and make it more interesting.
2. Practice regularly: Encourage your child to practice maths regularly using online resources, or games. There are sites your child’s teacher recommends. Regular practice will help build their maths skills and confidence.
3. Provide a quiet and organised workspace: Ensure that your child has a quiet and organised space to work on maths problems. This will help them stay focused and minimize distractions.
4. Use visuals: Use visuals such as diagrams, graphs, and pictures to help your child understand maths concepts. This can make abstract concepts more concrete and easier to comprehend.
5. Ask questions: Ask your child questions about their maths homework or concepts they are learning in class. This will help them think critically and develop a deeper understanding of maths.
6. Encourage questions: Encourage your child to ask questions about maths. This will help them clarify their understanding of concepts and overcome any difficulties they may be experiencing.
7. Celebrate progress: Celebrate your child's progress in maths. This can be done through small rewards or praise for their hard work and achievements.
Remember that every child learns at a different pace, so it is important to be patient and provide support that matches their level of understanding.

The APS Festival choir combined with students from Modbury West, Modbury, East Para and Ingle Farm East for a big rehearsal.
We had about 100 voices singing. It sounded great. Also visiting us was Cathy Lange the Assistant Director of Music from the Festival of Music
