Nursing Home Visits – Choir

On Thursday 5th December the choir visited 3 Nursing Homes to sing Christmas songs. The Homes were: OPAL Roxburgh Meadow Heights, CraigCare Pascoe Vale Nursing Home & Aged Care and Arcadia Aged Care Facility (Essendon).

The students were welcomed with open arms and residents sang along to the well-known Christmas songs. Many students received hugs and praises before leaving. The students are to be commended for their professionalism and ability to bring great joy to many older citizens of the outer community.

Well done to all the students for their hard work, practising during lunchtimes each week. They’ll be back in our Christmas Concert ready to sing ‘Here Comes Santa Claus’, which includes a little dancing from some of our Year 6’s.

Year 4 Melbourne Museum Excursion

On Tuesday the 26th of November, students in Year 4 enthusiastically boarded buses and headed off to the Melbourne Museum. As a part of their Curiosity subject, students have been exploring the history of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and the diversity of their community. Students immersed themselves in the IMAX documentary: Australia, The Wild Top End in 3D, which was narrated by Indigenous elder Balang T.E. Lewis. Afterwards, students were able to explore the First Peoples and 600 Million Years: Victoria Evolves exhibitions, making many connections to the history, culture and geography associated with their the learning throughout this term. All students represented our school beautifully and did their school and community proud.

Colour Blast!

This year has been full of exciting learning and new discoveries for our Year 3 students. In Term 3 we explored Earth and Space, displayed curiosity at Scienceworks, and created our Writers’ Festival pieces to put on display. In Term 4, we explored Culture and Communities, celebrating the diversity we have within and around our school community.

To see just how well our community bands together, you don’t have to look any further than our school Colour Blast. An exciting fundraiser that encourages students to raise money to further develop our school. The Year 3 students were unable to contain their excitement as they ran through the colourful course. It is always encouraging to see students and parents get involved in these activities and we could not have asked for a better day!

As the year comes to a close, there was no better way than to send them off with a blast!

Our Trip to the Melbourne Museum

On Tuesday the 26th  and Wednesday the 27th of November,  the Year 1s went to the magical Melbourne Museum. We were lucky enough to spend time in lots of different sections of the museum, and got to see lots of exciting things! We visited the Science section where we walked over the prehistoric dinosaur bridge and saw humungous dinosaur skeletons. There was even a part that you could walk over a fossil!

We also went into the Wild section and saw hundreds of animals from all across the world. Some of the animals we saw included a rhinoceros, an okapi, a hyena, a snow leopard and a pangolin. The touch screens showed us all the facts about animals we had never seen before.

We had a teacher from the museum talk us through a lesson called Grandma’s Toy Box. We learnt about items from the past and how they changed over the years. We found out that children used to play with skipping ropes made from wood and rope instead of plastic. Our teacher also told us that cameras used to have film in them and you had to wait about 2 weeks for your photos to be developed before

Year 6 Camp – Thursday

We woke up to a warm and windy day where we all had to practise our great Aussie salute to keep the flies away. Armed with lots of sunscreen we headed to our activities with one change. our Kayakers became Boogie Boarders. The cool change was a brief shower that brought relief from the heat and we continued on. for our last night at camp we feasted on chicken schnitzel, roast vegies and yummy salads, topped off with ice cream cones. Tonight we will be putting on our disco gear to party the night away.
