About Penbank6

We are a group of 24 students.

Some facts about us:

We are 11 girls and 14 boys.

Some of us enjoy basketball, soccer, tennis, swimming, skateboarding, surfing, AFL, athletics, and more. We are a very active bunch of kids!

Some of us love drawing, reading, painting, dancing, singing, writing, reading, and more. We are a thoughtful and creative bunch too!

Our teacher’s name is Justin. We call him Justin.

We are lucky to attend a school surrounded by native trees and wetlands. We have a creek running through our playground. We are fortunate to have a big, lush green oval and a soft soccer field.

We have cows, pigs, chickens and a sheep at our school. Just about every year we get new calves which students take care of. In recent years we have had 2 calves born at Penbank! We have named them Norman and Shoes (Shoes’mother’s name is Sox).

Parents at Penbank school are extremely supportive and their involvement in the school is highly valued.

Each week we have a school meeting (not an ‘assembly’). This is led by two different Year 6 students each week. We think students at Penbank have very good public speaking skills! Each school meeting is highly student-focused and an opportunity to share with parents, teachers and kids all of the learning and experiences that occur at our school.

Penbank School is a friendly school. Please say hi!

  3. Dear Penbank6

    I think that it is great that you all are creative and athletic. We call our teacher Miss McLeod and we aren’t surrounded by wetlands and forests, but we do have a pretty cool playground! I also like how you have named your calf Sox to go with its mother’s name, Shoes. We also have an assembly with our learning teams and each time we have a different class lead it.

    Hope to keep in touch

  6. Hi,
    You are so lucky that you have a soccer field! We only have a blacktop field. Do you have school rules? We do.

  7. Hi,
    My name Jack but my classmates call me JJ I really like that you have a grass soccer field because at my school, we have to play on cement. When I fall down the cement really scrapes my knee.
