Multicultural Week

At the end of Term 2, the Year 2 students all participated in a Multicultural Week.

On Tuesday we looked at Indigenous Australians. The students did charcoal drawings, decorated boomerangs and got to taste ‘bush tucker’.

On Wednesday we looked at Multicultural Australians. We walked to the Greenvale shopping centre to investigate food and grocery items available from other countries, we cooked rice and used chopsticks to eat it and we made necklaces from macaroni.

On Thursday we studied Australia. The students dressed up in Aussie bush attire and were able to try some Australian food- vegemite sandwich and lamingtons.

We all had a fantastic week celebrating Multiculturalism in Australia. Below are some photos of the students having fun!

Happily Ever After!

During Term 4 our Inquiry topic is ‘Happily Ever After’. We will be studying lots of different Fairy Tales. On Tuesday the 13th October we had an exciting in-school activity by Carp Productions. This show explored Fairy Tales in a fun and interactive way, getting all the students involved in the story. Students learnt not only about the stories, but had an opportunity to experience performance for themselves. We all enjoyed the show, it was really funny!! Below are some photos, even some of our own students performing in the show!
