Year 6 – the first semester

Camilla Levine

The first semester

This first semester of 2022 was a very eventful one for many good reasons. Year 6 had an amazing camp in Canberra, which involved going to both old and new Parliament Houses, the National Gallery of Australia, the National War Memorial and more! As well as that, students from Years 4-12 went to Music Camp! Mount Sinai joined us and so did the talented conductor, AJ America, which made Music Camp an incredible learning experience. 

As well as those fun events, Year 6 also got the privilege to do a project called Write A Book In A Day. This is a fun and collaborative project which involves writing a book with illustrations in just 12 hours! Year 6 loved this project because we got together with students across the grade and made a book with the funny prompts given. The books made by the groups of students were given to hospitals all across Australia to kids with cancer to read. Not only were we proud to support this initiative, but we were also proud of the great books we wrote! 

Unfortunately, I am leaving Emanuel school at the end of Term 2 and will miss the school very much. I will miss the amazing teachers and community here at Emanuel, and I am eternally grateful for the amazing education I have been getting at this amazing school.

This has been a very exciting journey for Year 6 and there is more to come! Thank you for having me Emanuel!
