The sun was shining and so was our sportsmanship, our dance skills and our Faction Leaders!
Our Junior Carnival Day for Pre-primary to Year 2 was a huge success, the kids participated in lots of events, received lots of ribbons and we have received positive feedback from parents, staff and the students.
We would like to thank Mrs Putt, Mrs Kenny and all staff involved for their hard work and great organisation to make it such a great day!
Our school complies with The Department of Education Student Attendance Policy therefore absence due to in-term family holidays will be reflected in the child’s attendance record.
BUDDIES SHARE FRIENDLY SCHOOLS ACTIVITY
All classes at MHPS are buddied up with another class to share and learn cooperatively. Friendly Schools Plus is the chosen whole school program aimed at teaching social and emotional learning in a fun and interactive way. Recently, Room 32 got together with their buddies from Room 11 and created the alphabet on how to treat our friends.

FIRST AID FOCUS
Throughout Week 2, students from PP to Year 5 attended First Aid Focus sessions run by St Johns. MHPS make this an annual event to refresh the student’s knowledge of emergency procedures and basic first aid skills. The Year 4 students learnt how to follow Dr ABCD when assessing how to assess and assist a person in need of help.
TOURNAMENTS OF MINDS (TOMS)
Tournament of Minds is a problem solving programme for teams of students from both primary and secondary years. Tournament’s aim is to enhance the potential of our youth by developing diverse skills, enterprise, time management, and the discipline to work collaboratively within a challenging and competitive environment.
This year MHPS has entered two teams of Year 4 and 5 students for the first time. To prepare the teams for the challenging national competition, we invited past national winners from Iona College, to share their experience with the students. The teams also attended an afternoon workshop with Di Rundus (Development officer of TOMS) to help them develop their team skills and planning for the competition.
We wish the teams the best of luck in the challenges ahead.
DRAMA! DRAMA! DRAMA!
Students from Year 4 and 5 are enjoying participating in a 5 week drama course this term. Throughout the course the students learn how to effectively use a variety of elements of drama and work cooperatively with their peers. Lots of fun and laughs are included.

We are blasting off to our favourite time of year in the Library, Book Week, in Week 5. This year the theme is Reading is My Secret Power. What are your secret powers unleashed by delving into a book? Mount Hawthorn students vote for their favourite, so stand by to discover which our favourite book is. Will the judges agree with us?
Start planning for the fabulous Book Week dress up day on Friday 23 August.
The tiger turf will be bustling with colourful magic as the students parade as their favourite book characters.
We have 2 very special guests reading stories on Thursday 22 August. Will they be revealing their secret powers, perhaps as a spy, magician or protector of the peace?
Space walk into the library to see our intergalactic displays, thanks to our very talented Mrs Underwood. We are celebrating the 50th anniversary of the moon landing. Bring your camera to snap a picture of you as an astronaut, but beware of the weightless zone.
