Healesville Sanctuary

On Monday 1st May, the 5/6 level traveled to Healesville Sanctuary to introduce this terms inquiry unit.

We were introduced to some of Australia’s most endangered species.
We got to have close-up encounters with some of them too!
One of the Sanctuary’s rangers told us what we can do it help endangered species.

Which was your favourite animal? Why?
What was something you learnt whilst at Healesville Sanctuary?
What are some of the things we can do to support endangered species?

Did you enjoy the day? Why? Why not?

Congratulations!!

Congratulations to the Girls Basketball, Boys Basketball and Boys Tennis teams for making it through to the Semi-Finals for Inter School Sport.

It was a tough morning. The Girls Basketball team and the Boys Tennis team tried their hardest to make it into the Finals but their competition was just that little stronger.

Whereas, the Boys Basketball team won their Semi-Final game and made it into the Grand Final. It was a tougher game than their first. They tried their best and worked well as a team but unfortunately, they didn’t win. They came runners up in the Noble Park District.

We would like to congratulate all students who made it to the semi-finals and finals! It was great to see you all work as a team, show great team spirit and sportsmanship!

Assemby

This afternoon 5/6 WM and 5/6 MA presented to the school at assembly.
We shared some of the work we have been doing in the class post out trip to camp.
A group of students along with Mrs Watkins rewrote the song ‘Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah’ with lyrics that were about our Phillip Islnad trip.
Below you will find the PowerPoint we used at assembly. Our version of the song is also on the PowerPoint. We have also included the song for you to sing along to.

Leave us a comment and let us know what you think about our version of the song.

Beach Day Fun

On Friday, the 13th of March, the whole school went out for some fun. The warm weather and sunny weather was inviting, and no one could resist the call of the beach.

The students participated in making sandcastles, parachutes, beach volleyball, cricket and beach safety, let’s not forget some free time.
We are all sure that everyone had a blast playing, eating and just simply relaxing, here are some pictures to show our fun.
