    Celebration of Learninghttp://www.staroftheseacleveland.qld.edu.au/Latest News/Pages/Celebration-of-Learning.aspxCelebration of LearningThis week we hosted our final ‘Celebration of Learning’ for 2021. We were extremely proud to showcase to our school community the remarkable learning that has happened this year at Star of the Sea. Many parents and grandparents visited our display in the O’Dea to look at the work samples from Prep through to Year 6.<br></p><p>The purpose of the event was to share and celebrate the learning growth stories of our students and the impact of our teaching practice. On display were student writing samples from Term 1 and Term 4. When you see these samples side by side, you realise just how much growth our students have made over the year and the impact of our teaching. Well done to both our students and teachers for all the hard work and effort you have made towards your learning and teaching this year. We are very proud of you all!<br></p><p>​<br><img src="/Latest%20News/PublishingImages/CelebrationOfLearning2021a.jpg" alt="CelebrationOfLearning2021a.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:561px;" /><br></p>
