Medals, medals everywhere.

We read, read, read. and finished our title

 Mr Weatherill must be happy with Room 14 at Grange

We proved to the Premier that we are indeed Super Readers, because we successfully completed our Premier’s Reading Challenge. The year three and four classes got together today to acknowledge all our hard efforts and present the awards for completing this challenge.

First time participants received a certificate. We didn’t have any first timers. However after completing the challenge two years in a row a bronze medal is awarded.


Riley was our Bronze Medalist, doesn’t he look proud.


Finlay completed three years of the challenge and has earned his Silver Medal. Yay Finn.


However most of the class has received their Gold Medals for Four years of commitment.

Well done to – Ty, Hamish, Jack, Kiara, Tyla, Wil, Zahra, Ryan, Maggie, Jessica, Jorja, James Harry, Max, Nelson, Baylee, Lakeisha, Shayla,  Bella.V., Bella.Z., also to Ella, Mica and Pria who were absent .


We had a special Champion Reader in Ruby who has completed the Challenge five times. Way to go girl.

But that’s not all….

Our class doesn’t just take reading seriously, we also take our fitness seriously too. So when were told we could do the Premier’s

 Be fit Challenge we gave it a go.



Ty, Jessica, Jorja, Wil, Tyla, Jack, Ella, Max,Riley, Bella.V., Maggie, and Ruby all received their Bronze Medals for their first go. Whoo hoo.


Lakeisha, Zahra, Finlay, Baylee, James, and Hamish were awarded Silver Medals.  Mica and Pria will get theirs on return from their holiday. Superb effort.


Our two classroom Chipmunks (they always giggle like the Chipmunks from Bugs Bunny) became our Gold Medalists. Now that’s something to smile about .


Fabulous effort everyone. Keep up that positive attitude for next year. I am very proud of you all.

How do you feel about your efforts?

What kept you going when it was a tricky thing to do?

What would you like to say to the ones who didn’t manage to complete their challenge?

    When we were on holiday, we were thinking about our challenges we participated in when our medals would be handed out, whether it was during our cruise or after. which day was it on while we were away?

    Dear Riley,
    Congratulations for getting Medals at school. Are you proud getting those medals?. How did you get those medals?. What type of books did you read to get those medals?. Because I’m really proud I’ve got them on dis play at home. You are a really good reader. What type of books do you read out of novels or picture books?.

    Regards Max

    G’day Jorja,Jessica and Tyla,
    The premiers be active challenge is a bit like Pe because you are being active. Do you like doing all of the fitness and how long before you get puffed out I get puffed out in about 3 minutes. When I start to do everything I go slow and then I at the end of the race I run as fast as I can.

    From Ruby

      Dear Ruby,
      Your comment was interesting because how you did to be active show how to do 12 minute run. What activities did you for the active challenge?

      Hello Ella,
      Thank you for your kind words. We do have a lot of fun and we do work hard too. What part of the week do you enjoy the most? I think seeing you all help each other is fabulous, it shows just how independent you can be. Let’s see how tomorrow goes.
      Kind regards

      G’day Bella,
      Actually I was surprised that you both had achieved that level I didn’t know that the year ones were entering years ago. Now of course you’ll have to make sure your next years teacher will let you join in. No I have never won a medal for anything. I have no idea when the awards will be announced, last year it was close to the end of the term. We will have to keep our eyes open.
      Best wishes Ellen

    Hola Ellen,
    Its a miracle that me and bella got the gold medals for the active challenge that was fun for me and bella. Did you enjoy giving the medals out ? The photos on the blog were great. Do you think we are going to win the best blog ? I think we are going to.
    Best wishes Shayla

      Greetings Shayla,
      I’m not sure it was a miracle instead it was hard work on your part don’t you think? I did indeed enjoy handing out the medals to you all. I was very proud of your efforts. I think you showed the other classes just what you can do well in reading and in fitness. I do not know when they will start the awards for best blogs but I think we could try. It takes lots of work from all our families and friends. We’ll have to keep our eyes open to check.
      Warm wishes Ellen

Thanks for your kind feedback about my reading I d love reading out loud but they have to be good books. I think the ones we chose this year are. The medals are a great idea. I would have loved some when I was beginning , oh well I can look at yours. Hope you are feeling better and we see you soon. You have had an awful time of late. Warm wishes Ellen
