On Friday the 7th of December, all of the Year 1 students dressed in an outfit that could be associated with a farm. They had developed this idea previously with the goal of raising money for Drought Angels, a charity that supports farmers, their families and the local communities. The students came as farmers, animals, vegetables and scarecrows. Below are some photos from the day.
Congratulations to the 31 choir students for singing great Christmas Joy to all the residents in the 4 Nursing Homes; St Annes Westmeadows, Craigcare Pascoe Vale, Arcadia Essendon and OPAL Meadow Heights.
I’m so proud of their hard work during lunchtime practices and believe their singing and confidence is improving greatly. Looking forward to our future performances in 2019!

In Term 4, the Year 1 students have been busy learning about farms, produce and drought. On Tuesday the 27th of November, all 5 classes had the opportunity to visit Edendale Farm in Eltham.

As the clouds started to build we headed back to camp for afternoon tea, showers, a thunder storm and some indoor games. Dinner was fish and chips and your choice of the most delicious salads you could dream of, followed by ice cream cake for desert.
