Student Voice Nursing Home Visit

Student Voice Volunteer Day

On Friday, the 27th of November, the student voice team volunteered their time at the Opal Roxburgh Aged Care Facility in Meadow Heights.

Each student made a short presentation to showcase their hobbies/talents/achievements. The students then played bingo with the residents and then read to them and chatted. We had a great time and the students and residents were sad when it was time to leave!

Congratulations to the student voice members Jalle, Ben, Daniel, Eden, Sandu, Zain, Samantha and Selim; and to school captains and vice captains Darcy, Joshua, James and Isabelle for volunteering their time, and for demonstrating their strong leadership skills and strengthening their links with the local community.

A big thank you to teacher Mareeka Papadopolous for organising the visit and to parent helper Lisa Kenos for her time.

The Great Year Five Bake-Off

The Great Bake-Off 2015 was a huge success. The year five students have been busy all this term exploring recipes, sourcing the best prices for ingredients, creating a budget and preparing advertising posters. Over the weekend they met up with their group to shop and prepare their product for the Bake-Off.

On Monday, the 16th of November, the students set up their stalls and the rest of the school came to visit to purchase their delicious treats! Yum, yum!


We are proud to announce that classes 5SC and 5C raised a total of $677.00 which will be donated to UNICEF Australia to help support and fund children’s rights to education, sanitation, medical care, clean water and nutrition.

5LD and 5SM raised a total of $897.80c to be donated to the Sanfilippo Children’s Foundation, which is trying to find a cure for a rare genetic brain condition where sufferers do not tend to live beyond 12-20 years.
