Term 4 is an absolutely magic time in schools and just like the first week of the school year, it is full of range of feelings. We will have our Kinders stepping with excitement into the big yard for the first time, the nerves of getting through auditions for our school production of ‘The Phantom of the Talent Factor,’ through to our Grade 10s undertaking exams and taking the next step in their journey towards Grade 11, understandably with mixed emotions. I’d like to welcome back all of our staff, students and their families, and a special welcome to our new enrolments and families that are joining us at Penguin District School for the final term of the school year.
Congratulations to Year 10 student Dalton on representing Australia this week at the Oceania Track Titles in New Zealand. Daltons’ selection has been capped off with a gold medal in the U19 Men’s Team Pursuit event. A sensational effort Dalton!
During the school holidays Brady in Year 10 travelled to Queensland to compete in the National Mixed Martial Arts tournament where he placed third. Well done Brady.
Penguin District School values the contribution that students make within the community, please keep us informed of significant student achievements by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or send a message via the Penguin District School Facebook page.
The 9/10 Forensic Science class had a play with creating fake blood. They then observed the behaviour of passive blood drips from different heights. Using the average diameter of the 5 best drop stains, students were able to discover a relationship in height and blood spot diameter. In the upcoming weeks students will continue to experiment with blood splatter and observe the differences created by different velocity.

Your son/daughter is interested in representing Penguin District School at an event called Kakka, which is organised by the Don College Outdoor Leadership class.
This event will be held on Wednesday 23 October from 9:00 am until 2:00 pm at Don College in Devonport. Students will return to school before the normal dismissal time.
The team competition (3 people) involves a 1.1km paddle in the Don River (kayak and safety equipment provided), a mountain bike through the Don Reserve (student’s own bike or the school’s), a 5km run surrounding the Don College campus and an obstacle course that all 3 people complete.
Students should wear their school polo top as uniform on this day and come prepared with food, drink and a change of clothes. Socks and shoes will likely get wet and muddy.
Travel to the event will be in one of the school’s buses. If you have any queries or concerns please contact Jade Hughes at school on 6434 2222.
