During Term 4, Stage 2 students and their teachers from St Nicholas of Myra, Penrith were honoured to participate in the author-in-residence partnership with WestWords. The students were beyond excited to have Jodie McLeod come in and work with them sharing her stories and experiences as a professionally published author. The students and teachers were struck by her talents as she shared her story, Leonard the Lyrebird.
Many students have been working hard and following the St Nicholas Positive Behaviour Supports for learning (PBS4L) framework to be safe, respectful learners.
On the 16th of November, 11 girls represented St Nicholas of Myra at the Diocesan Gymnastics Gala Day. The girls applied themselves and persevered across the four apparatus on the day. Overall the girls came 2nd in the blue group of 10 division. Congratulations to you all on a fantastic effort and achievement!
