News & Events
Students from the 5/6 area all participated in the annual Science Fair on Friday 2nd of November. The Science Fair is a wonderful opportunity for students to not only see what other schools are doing in their Science/STEM programs, but to also show case what we are doing. This year we presented our digital portfolios we made using our digital microscopes. All students had a chance to supervise our stall. Special well done goes to Thomas, Lauren, Noah, Taya and Ollie for presenting to 200 students in the auditorium. As always our students represented our school with respect, courtesy and enthusiasm.
Students from the 5/6 area attended the Kids Teaching Kids program on Thursday the 6th down at the Quarantine Station at the Point Nepean National Park. They gave a presentation on how schools can reduce their carbon footprint with a variety of recycling and reusing programs. As always, our students behaved beautifully and represented their school perfectly. Well done to all involved!
Year 5/6 students commemorated Remembrance Day by visiting Fort Nepean at the Point Nepean National Park. The weather was perfect and the children learnt a lot about the fort’s history. At 11AM we held our minutes silence after listening to the last post at the Quarantine Station. As always our children behaved brilliantly and represented their school with honour.
It is with great sadness that we bid Mrs Hill farewell as she begins her life as a retiree; sailing the Greek Islands with Mr Hill!
Gretta devoted her life’s work in making a difference in the lives of countless children. There was never a dull moment as Gretta injected enthusiasm, humour and knowledge into our school. We wish her all the vey best in her new life and hope she doesn’t forget about us! We welcome Mrs Gee to our school as our new art/science teacher as well as foundation support.
The 5/6 students were lucky enough to be invited to the HMAS Cerberus Summer Ceremonial Parade on Friday the 18th of March. Thankfully we decided to brave the cold and the rain because the parade was outstanding to watch. Students then visited the museum on the base where we explored the history of the base for several hours. A big thank you to Chief Petty Officer Mulheron for organising the day.
