Our 5/6 Camp at The Briars provided a range of activities built around cooperation, personal challenges and lots of fun! Whilst the Flying Fox and Giant Swing called for a good amount of courage, Saving Teddy and Crate Building were based on team work and ingenuity. Arm strength and a keen eye was required for Archery, with the Low Ropes demanding balance and poise. Our morning at the beach was simply glorious!
Yesterday 3/4CA began their first PIP for the year! Personal Interest Projects provide an opportunity for students to investigate a topic, question or wondering of their choice- developing both their research and later their presentation skills.
In order to give the grade 3 students some time to first develop their presentation skills it was agreed that all children would begin by completing their first PIP on themselves- including hobbies, strengths, interests and some amazing facts.The students were very excited to get started! We look forward to seeing the final results!

The Year 5/6s have been constructing programs where users can interact with it. Here is a traffic light for a pedestrian crossing that Chiara G constructed. Click on the green flag to begin the program and when you are ready to cross, press the grey button on the traffic light pole.
Chiara has also considered visually impaired users by including sounds.
I wanted to say a BIG thank you to all the families and teachers who supported my team ‘The Wooden Spoons’ for our 100km Oxfam walk. As a group we were able to raise $4,730!!! We are so happy with the amount we raised because we know Oxfam will be able to use that money to help communities around the world.
The walk started off with beautiful sunshine up in the Dandenong Ranges. We were walking up the hills through the beautiful trees. The longer we walked, the colder and rainier it got! We all put on our ponchos and rugged up to walk throughout the night! Our feet were sore, we were cold and wet, but we all were happy and chatting as we went. We kept on walking all the next day, we even walked through Westerfolds Park! It was starting to get dark again and we finally made it to Fairfield Boat House! We had family, friends and of course dogs at the finish line cheering us on. It felt SO good to finish and FINALY go to bed! 😴😴😴
