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.
In the first week of term 4, year 4 students were busy working hard on their class captain speeches. Using their knowledge of persuasive writing, students delivered well written and confidently spoken speeches to convince their peers why they should be a class captain.
We are proud to announce the following students as the term 4 class captains:

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.
Thank you to those parents who attended the Maths Information Nights for Year 3/4 and Year 5/6. Below are the slides from each of the sessions.
Congratulations to the following Class Captains for Term Two.
