Fish Tank

The fish have arrived! We now have 14 new  tropical fish and 2 apple snails in our science room fish tank. The aquatic plants are growing nicely, and now that the fish have arrived there’ll be more interesting things to look at. Fish feeding will happen twice a day, once in the morning and once in the afternoon. A roster will be drawn up shortly for fish feeding responsibilities. 

Shoelace tying

Thank you Ascent Footwear for running this free incursion for our junior primary students. The Pre Primarys have almost mastered the art of tying their shoes laces. They continue to practice each morning with the practice kits provided.

Paper Making

Do you know what a paper deckle is? The Green Team found out when they made their own paper! A massive thank you to Mrs Harris and Miss Giannakis for your help with this process. We can’t wait to see the end result.  

National Simultaneous Storytime

National Simultaneous Storytime (NSS) is held annually by the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA). Every year a picture book, written and illustrated by an Australian author and illustrator, is read simultaneously in libraries, schools, pre-schools, childcare centres, family homes, bookshops and many other places around the country. Now in its 21st successful year, it is a colourful, vibrant, fun event that aims to promote the value of reading and literacy.

This year’s book,  Give Me Some Space,  is being read by the astronaut Dr Shannon Walker –  from the International Space Station!

National Walk Safely to School Day

On Friday 14 May, we encourage families to participate in Walk Safely to School Day. This is a great opportunity to promote safe walking and active transport to children.
