This term, we were invited by a Year 2 class from Glenbrook Elementary School (Wisconsin, USA) to assist with a unit on ‘Communities’ they are going to study. Alexis, Ariella and Hannah (3/4CA) assisted by contributing photos to a Google Slide (shown below).
Here is a message from the teacher of that class:
“Thank you so much for all the classes that added slides to the Community Slideshow! I am excited to start having my kids learn about all these great places. Many of you added social media sites or email addresses! This will be a wonderful way to make connections throughout the year!”
– Tracy Wiedeman (Glenbrook Elementary School)
Look at who arrived at St Charles Borromeo today?
Oliver and Oliver. The octopus twins from Colegio Newlands (Argentina).

Here are some adventures they have been on before.
Have a look at the display the Year 1s at Colegio Newlands have made for the project they are doing with our Year 1/2s. How many koalas can you see?
Thanks to Martin (ICT Teacher at Holy Family, Mount Waverley) who sent this photo through while visiting Argentina.
Have a look at the drawings the Year 1 students from Colegio Newlands have made of their favourite Australian animals.

On Friday, Fabian will be inviting the Preps to Year 2 to come and play Google’s Interland.
