We are back to to school today, Wednesday 27th April. Today is also Miss Jordan’s birthday!
The students and teachers have enjoyed their two and a half week holiday.
What did Miss Jordan do on the holidays?
Miss Jordan had a great holiday and enjoyed eating a few Easter eggs!
In the first week, she visited her family (near Halls Gap) for a few days. It was nice and relaxing being in the “country” and her mum made lots of yummy home cooked meals! It’s fun having a pool but it wasn’t quite warm enough for a swim!
Miss Jordan also enjoyed spending time with friends at some cafes and restaurants in Geelong. She did lots of exercise, read a few books and spent time in the garden.
The highlight of Miss Jordan’s second week of holidays was going to Sydney to attend the Google Teacher Academy. Along with 50 other teachers from all around the world, (including Mr Limb), Miss Jordan learnt about lots of different Google educational tools. It was a fun and exciting few days! She is looking forward to using some of the Google tools in the classroom with 2KJ and 2KM.
What did Mrs Morris do on the holidays?
Mrs Morris enjoyed her holidays with her husband, Nate who is also a teacher. Mrs Morris and Nate spent some time at Nate’s parents’ farm near Phillip Island. There were cattle and fences to help out with on the farm and also plenty of time to read, cook, walk and relax.
Mrs Morris and Nate went to an engagement party where they had to dress up in a “onesie”. Mrs Morris was a skiier while Nate dressed up as a painter with a funny wig.
In the second week of the holidays, Mrs Morris and Nate went to Daylesford. They did lots of walking, eating and relaxing. Here is Mrs Morris in front of the Pioneer Memorial Tower in the Daylesford Botanical Gardens. Guess how many steps there were to get to the top?
Mrs Morris got her long hair cut short in the holidays! It is handy having a sister who is a hairdresser and it is always good to have a change.
A big highlight of the holidays was when Mrs Morris got an iPad 2! This will be useful in the classroom and Mrs Morris is enjoying learning all the things you can do with an iPad.
