Team work means that you are a great team mate. You do your share and get people to work well together.

In each of our classrooms at Barwon Heads PS, we cooperate with each other and work together. When we go outside to play on the oval, whether it be cricket, football or soccer, teamwork is involved. Teamwork occurs at home when you do things to help others, especially your parents.
Can you think of any other examples of times when you have used the Character Strength of teamwork?
WOW! What an amazing morning we had celebrating the opening of the Olympic Games! 3A dressed in the French colors of red, white and blue. Each class (country) got to parade around the arena just like the athletes in the Olympic Games. We had drum players, doves (pigeons) released into the sky and even a cherry picker with the symbol of Rio on it. The Olympic Flame arrived on a motorbike (Mrs Booth and Steve) and a person from each grade level got to run around the arena with it. Mr Roskosch came back and was our master of ceremonies. We enjoyed having lots of parents join in too!
What was your favourite part of our opening ceremony?
On Tuesday all of the Grade 3-6 students from BHPS spent the day at Landy Field participating in our school’s house sports. It was the first time for the Grade 3’s, and everyone was excited and looking forward to the day.
I managed the hurdles and was so impressed by the way the students participated with such enthusiasm. It was a pleasure to be there helping and it was lovely to see so many parents too.
On Friday we welcomed many of our parents and grandparents into our classroom. It was great to share some of our learning. The students performed poems that they had learnt during the week. We shared our Barwon Heads history projects with our families, played maths games and estimated blocks in a jar. It was great to have so many parents write on our blog! Thank you so much for visiting our classroom!
