Wednesday 29 March was a historic day as the whole school came together for the very first Easter service held on our campus. Students and teachers were moved by the visual presentation of year 5 and students, re-enacting the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus. The 4-6 choir sang superbly and a band of high school students from Reedy creek led inspirational worship. Mr Malcolm and Ps Matt taught passionately from Scripture on the theme of the "Empty tomb" from John chapter 20.
The service will become a hallmark of our school's Christian culture, reminding us all that Christ died that we may have eternal life!
Mr Peter Malcolm
It was a big day on Wednesday March 28. Year 5 and 6 held their Term 1 Culminating Event - The PBL Games.
On Thursday March 29, the Year 6's had a special visit from the Year 12's from Reedy Creek. After a very inspiring chapel they then ran a series of Commonwealth Games themed activities in the Pavilion. The focus was on teamwork, leading by example and being an encourager.
On Tuesday March 20, the Year 3 students had their Term 1 Culminating event to celebrate their Multicultural Australia unit.
After an international dance concert they shared a multicultural feast with their families.
On Tuesday March 6 the Year 2's went to Superbee Honey World in Currumbin.
Here is a recount from Aizelle Lim in 2G.
Our enthusiastic debaters have begun drafting arguments to build upon for our next topic; 'We should know how to spell'. Homework has been set for arguments to be developed with research to back up these initial statements. Please do not rule out bringing stronger ideas to the table as you develop your thinking from surface to a deeper level. As an idea is developed, construct a rebuttal list as well. The more effort applied to drafting stage, the easier it can be for debaters in compiling all of their thinking and research.
- Knowing how to spell, helps our ability to read.
- Technology is not always available when we need it.
- Spelling enables us to understand the world around us.
- Technology allows us to use auto correct and predictive text.
- A lot of countries outside of the Commonwealth spell words phonetically.
- The English language is the hardest to learn as there are lots of rules to remember.
Below are some ideas to research for the Negative team
Mental Health - perfectionism is spelling correctly, but how many are perfect, so this leads to depression for perfectionists
Internet World - we don’t need to spell any more, spell check, talk to text,
Not everyone needs to learn how to spell - it does not impede success eg sports people, entertainers, Good people are labelled because they can’t spell, like who cares? Imagine if they were labelled and never got to succeed. Eg Albert Einstein , Winston Churchill, Jane Austin, Leonard De Vinci, Benjamin Franklin, John F Kennedy
Kids born with learning difficulties eg dyslexia - find statistics of people born with issues that affect eyesight, transfer of information etc. What medical issues are there that affect ability to spell?

Peacemaker awards are given at each fortnightly assembly to students who exhibit the traits of a peacemaker. Sharing, helping others, cleaning up, listening, showing kindness to classmates and waiting patiently for a turn are just some of the many positive social skills displayed by a peacemaker.
Here are some of our recent Peacemakers:
Due to popular demand, King's Pimpama is opening a second day for piano lessons starting from Term 2!
Our piano teacher Joanna Funk will now be at school on Mondays and Wednesdays to teach those already on the waiting list, however, there are still several places available for Wednesdays. Should you wish to take up this opportunity, please follow the "Instrumental Music" link via Compass or pick up an information and booking form at Reception.
To see some of the skills that students will develop in their lessons please visit Joanna's blog where a collection of performances by little hands (many of which belong to King's students) are viewable.
