We're LIVE from Grade 5!

Welcome to the Year 5 Blog

Welcome to Semester 2 for St Kilda Primary School Year 5s – 2018!

Our three Year 5 classes are: 5J (Ms Jones), 5R (Ms Roy) & 5E (Eric).

Semester 2 has had a wonderful start as students settle back into their classrooms, and we welcome back Ms Roy who joined us towards the end of Term 2. We will continue to develop leadership skills, as students work on implementing action plans based on the SKPS Sustainable Goals for the future developed in Semester 1. Of course, a key component of the semester will continue to be the use of the BYOD iPads.

We are looking forward to a fun and exciting semester, working with all members of the community to improve the experiences we share with our students.
