On the 29th of May, students in Year 3 & 4 attended an exciting, hands on incursion provided by the Hume Council on Composting and worm farms. Students participated enthusiastically, enhancing the knowledge they have gained this term about worms and the advantages they bring to composting. Students are eager to now construct their own compost systems, as part of their learning in Curiosity.
Over the past few weeks, students in Year 4 have been putting in time and effort to work on their speeches to be a Class Captain. Students have been eagerly awaiting the results and we are proud to announce the Term 2 Class Captains for Year 4 as follows:
4AK– Eliz Atik & Gimash Mudalpath
As part of Safer Internet Day the students in years 4, 5 and 6 took part in an eSafety webinar which focused on helping the children to understand the four Superpowers:
Respect – I will treat myself and others the way I like to be treated
Responsibility – I am accountable for my actions
Reasoning – I question what is real
Resilience – I get back up from tough situations
The students were given the opportunity to identify these Superpowers in different scenarios to develop a better understanding of their how they can be applied to real life.
Our final day at camp included more exciting challenges. Students had one last rotation before lunch and then it was time to head home. Some campers were a little worn out and took the opportunity to have a nap on the bus, while others enjoyed their last chance to share their favourite moments of the camp. Our worn-out adventurers were eager to return to the comforts of home, taking lasting memories with them.
Day 2 at camp was yet another glorious day. In the beautiful sunshine, we faced our fears, collaborated in teams, climbed hills and walls, galloped on mighty steeds, admired the stars and viewed the hills in the moonlight. We chatted together, offered support and cheered each other on. Students demonstrated independence, resilience, kindness, compassion and friendship! What a wonderful journey we have been on. What’s instore for day 3, I wonder…
Year 4 students arrived safely at the Ace-Hi ranch yesterday and haven’t stopped since. They have been climbing, laughing, riding, scaling, swinging and having a great time! The students are settling down for a hearty breakfast ready for the big day ahead….stay tuned!
As part of our unit on Civics and Citizenship, Year 4 students were very excited to welcome the Mayor of Hume Cr Geoff Porter to Greenvale Primary school. He explained his important role in the council. We also learned more about how the council provides services for aged care, children and babies as well as organising waste collection, school crossing supervisors and animal registration. The council is responsible for maintaining our parks, gardens, footpaths and build amazing facilities like Splash.
