ACG held a Free Dress with the theme of “Green for our Environment” to coincide with a Unit of Inquiry being investigated by the Year 5 and 6 Classes where the Central Idea focussed on ‘Conflict Resolution’.
Students were asked to acknowledge the various perspectives of people in an issue of conflict and then make suggestions how to come to some form of resolution. The introductory lessons explored all conflicts including war and religious differences, with one class deciding to explore personal conflicts, which extended into a local situation, linked to an international and global concern.

We had a very normal school day. We changed in to swimming suits and on top we wore our play clothes.
Then we had yummy snacks in the canteen. We ate fruit and we drank apple juice and orange juice.
After that, we went for a swim. I jumped in the pool and I heard splashing. But it started to thunder so we had to finish our swim early. Then we had to wait. Finally we went two by two under the umbrella.

ANZAC Day ServiceTuesday, 30 April 2013 09:38
The 25th April is an important and serious commemoration for New Zealand, Australian and British citizens to commemorate those who’ve given their lives in various conflicts. ACG laid a wreath at the Commonwealth Cemetery in Menteng and it was wonderful to see so many staff, students and parents of our community attending this memorable event. The Dawn Service is always very stirring and emotional, and we hope it initiates lots of discussion and thought with our students regarding the futileness of conflict and the high human costs in-volved.
