Last week one of our Year 6 students, Abbey, competed in the Eightball Federation State Junior Championships in Cannington. After the initial trials, Abbey made her way through the finals to finish second overall. She was watched on by 2 World Champion eightball players and even had the final game broadcast on live TV! Congratulations Abbey.
This year’s Book Week theme was Reading Everywhere and we had a focus on the book My Two Blankets, a story revolving around cultural diversity and the life of a young migrant. Students at Hocking were asked to redesign the book cover to convey their own impressions from the story. We had some fantastic entries nominated by class teachers and today we presented a number of our students with awards. Thanks to everyone that put time and thoughts into the event – it’s been brilliant to see the different aspects of the story picked up by the students.
