Donations Request – VR Phones

Hi Glendale!

Virtual reality is yet another avenue with endless possibilities for our students to learn, adapt and apply skills that will be needed for the future. Consider the training that could be completed for mine sites, pilots could run simulations more often, athletes could compete in simulations of real events.. the possibilities are endless!

What does Glendale need? Old phones!

If you have an older model iphone/ipod touch or android  (I will have to completely wipe all saved data from the device) that you don’t need any more and are willing to donate them to Glendale, then our students will have the opportunity to experience education through virtual reality and be better prepared for the future!

Runners Club – Every Wednesday

Runners club is a fantastic opportunity to get the kids’ brains and bodies moving before the day starts! It promotes fitness, health and wellbeing and will be a fantastic to way to strengthen our Glendale community.

Everyone is welcome to come along for a lap or 2 or 3 or 10! Parents, family and carers too! Feel welcome to extend the invitation as it would be amazing to see as many people as we can join in. Nothing is required to join Runners Club, just come along and get your club card!

Students will need to be supervised by parents until I have arrived at the oval. Parents of students in Kindy and Pre Primary will need to remain for the entire time and take their children to class at the end of the session.

Each student’s laps will be recorded and displayed as the term progresses. Our meeting point is behind the Library between the two ovals.

I hope to see everyone there!

Mr. Marsden
