Phillip Island Camp

Last week we traveled to Phillip Island for our school camp. We went as part of our Systems and Relationships unit.
It was a busy 3 days with the pelican feeding at San Remo, on-site activities (archery, giant swing, flying fox, free time, low ropes, climbing wall, trampoline), a visit to the Phillip Island Wildlife Park, a visit to Churchill Island, a walk along the Nobbies, seeing the Little Penguins come up the beach/boardwalk and lots more.

Here are just a few photos from the Wildlife Park.

Too Colourful Disco

Last week, the SRC along with Mr Brew and Mrs Rumpf planned and prepared the ‘Too Colourful Disco’.

The school hall was transformed into a disco atmosphere with dimmed lights, coloured laser lights and smoke (from the ‘smoke’ machine).

Each children who attended had to return their permission form the week before the event to ensure entry.
Upon arrival, each child received a bag of lollies, a chocolate bar, a refillable water bottle and cool glow sticks.

The children danced the night away.
There were many awards that were awarded for best dressed, best dance group, etc.
There were not prizes for everyone but Mr Brew does say that all children who were up dancing were winners!


What did you enjoy about the disco?
What advice could you give to the SRC – what could they add/change if there were to organise another disco in the future?

Head to the SRC blog and leave Mr Brew a comment!!!

The Power of One

Today our school watched and some of us participated in ‘The Power of One’ performance. The aims of the performance is to learn about the different types of bullying and the ways we can prevent bullying from happening in our lives. It also gave us tips on how to stop bullying if it is happening to ourselves or to someone else.

The three types of bullying that we learnt about – Physical Bullying, Exclusion Bullying and Cyber Bullying.

The people involved when someone is being bullied are – the Bully, the Target and the Bystander.

What did you learn from the performance?
In the performance who was the most guilty and why? (the Bully, the Target or the Bystander)
