Hello Swan Reach,
It is highly important for students to apply the 5 keys for successful life-long learning (organisation, confidence, getting along, persistence and resilience) every term, however it is vital that they ‘dig in’ this term to finish with the best possible outcomes. Their ability to persist and be resilient to finish strongly will significantly affect their academic endeavours and results. SRAS encourages our seniors to apply these skills as they hone in on completing their well-deserved SACE accreditation. You Can Do It!
MID MURRAY OUR TOWN (MMOT) LAUNCH EVENT @ SRAS FRIDAY 22nd Oct 2021

On Friday, 24th September, the Year 3-4-5-6 class designed and made their obento (Japanese lunch box) as a celebration of their learning. The students learnt about the history, features, characteristics and daily use of obento in Japan. Students had an opportunity to design, cook and present their obento box. They all did well and had a great time.

On Thursday, 25th September, the Year 7-8 students went to the Japanese Restaurant in Salisbury to celebrate the completion of their Japanese Food and Manners Unit. Students had to order their meal in Japanese and use their table manners, e.g. using chopsticks and starting their meal with a greeting. We also visited the Japanese Reject Shop, Daiso (Mawson Lakes). Students were very interested in the different goods in the shop. Special thanks to Mr Robertson for coming with us.
The photo was of my dish on the Japanese excursion, it was called the grilled pork chop with steamed rice. Over all I had a lot of fun on this excursion. I would definitely go back to the restaurant. By Timothy
If you desire to have anything with rice you will be given a bowl of soup. Each meal will have a different plate. There is the choice of eating with chop sticks or cutlery. By Thomas
On the Japanese trip, we ate our meals first. Then after we were done, we went to the shop Daiso, this has Japanese goods/items for around $5. By Naite
I noticed how their restaurants are better looking and fancier, unlike some of the restaurants you find in Australia. I liked how they had a bunch of decorations. They had a cool little window where you can see what the chefs are cooking. They have the same type of seating. They have a wider range of meals that they eat which is very different to what some people are used to. I liked how they decorated the restaurant. By Ella
There were not many people there. The service was fast in the restaurant. The shop was very cheap with money. My day was great. By Koby
It was a good and neat restaurant. The food tasted really good, it tasted like salmon but the texture was really weird and smooth but the prawns tasted just like prawns with rice. I would recommend the Mobara Japanese restaurant. By Jacob
The Japanese restaurant was very clean and tidy and the food was DELICIOUS! I had crispy chicken with fried rice, the meal was amazing and very filling. I definitely want to go back some time. After we went to the restaurant we went to a Japanese shop called Daiso. I bought a couple of things there. Thank you Mrs E and Mr Robertson for taking us on this trip, I am very grateful. By Cora

Reading for pleasure unlocks the power of information and imagination and helps children discover who they are. Here’s what you can do to help children develop stronger reading skills and a love for reading:
- Set the example. Let children see you read.
- Have a collection of books in your home. Update this collection routinely to keep up with changing tastes and reading skills.
- Support our school’s Book Fair. Allow your children to choose their own books to read.
The theme of our Scholastic Book Fair is Reading Oasis: A cool place to discover hot books!
It’s a fun reading event that brings the books kids want to read right into our school. It’s a wonderful selection of engaging and affordable books for every reading level. Please make plans to visit our Book Fair and be involved in shaping your child’s reading habits.
Book Fair dates: 25th October - 29th October, 2021
Shopping hours: Lunch time in 'Silver Vale' pop-up shop.
Parents/carers are welcome to organise a time to visit the book fair. EFTPOS available.
