2016 Colour Your Classroom Winner

This year Rooms 4, 5, 12 and 13 entered the Colour your Classroom Writing Competition sponsored by OfficeMax and Newell Brands (makers of Sharpie and Paper Mate stationery). This competition is open to all schools across Australia. Students were asked to write a short story about "the person who inspires me".

Congratulations to Laky Roberts (Room 12 - Yolande Lim) for being one of 20 national winners in this year’s competition. Laky’s short story was about his mum.

Laky has won a OfficeMax/Sharpie stationery gift pack and certificate for himself, $500 cash donation for the school which will be put towards next year’s Year 6/7 Camp (Laky’s suggestion) and $500 worth of Sharpie products which will be distributed to class teachers next year.

Thank you to all the students in Rooms 4, 5, 12 and 13 for entering this year’s competition and big congratulations to Laky.

Discover Dance - Out There

For several years we have worked with The Australian Ballet and last year selected students participated in filming a short film. It was very exciting and a fantastic opportunity for our students. You may view it by clicking on the image below.


Labs'n'Life was established in 2007 and has since grown to provide 20 programmes each week covering schools in the Northern, Western, Southern and Country school districts.

At Northfield, the programme commenced in Term 2 this year and provides some of our targeted students with the opportunity to experience success and gain confidence whilst learning how to form and build relationships. The students work with the same dog each Wednesday afternoon. The Labradors use a collection of techniques to provide an environment that supports calming responses to situations, working in co-operation with others, sharing ideas and friends, providing cuddles when needed and the ability to play without restriction. More information can be seen at the Labs'n'Life website: Working with the Labs'n'Life dogs has produced excellent results for our students and so we hope to continue this valuable addition to our school programme.

Walk to Brazil

To celebrate our Walk To Brazil and the beginning of the Olympics, we held our own Northfield Opening Ceremony.
In preparation for the 2016 Olympics, we were attempting to walk the distance between Northfield and the Olympic Stadium in Rio in time for the Opening Ceremony. During terms 2 & 3 students & staff have been walking/running laps of the oval on Tuesday and Friday mornings.

Overall as a school we walked 21300 laps = 8520 km.
Unfortunately we fell short of our target of 34013 laps = 13605 km.

Congratulations to all students for their Walk To Brazil achievements.
