Grade 3/4 PBL Launch

Nudge a Neighbour, Change a Behaviour!

Today, families were invited to come and see West’s best filmmakers and hopefully change some behaviours! This term, Grade 3/4 students have been working on a PBL (Project Based Learning) Unit titled “Natural Resources: Nudge a Neighbour, Change a Behaviour!” Students have been learning about sustainability, natural resources and their environment, as well as what makes a good team. Students have been working in teams to create videos that encourage others to change their behaviours, to create a better world. We are so proud of all the hard work the students have put into learning and making their persuasive and entertaining videos! 

Dancing at Assembly

Don’t forget the students will be dancing at assembly tomorrow morning, showcasing their moves that Mrs Libby Kennedy has taught them. We thank her for her work at MWPS over the last couple of weeks. The kids have loved it!

New Playground Equipment

The new playground arrived on two trucks on Tuesday afternoon!  The busy task of now installing each part of the playground will continue until at least Friday. There has been plenty of interest shown by the students at the diggers, concrete trucks and progress of the build. We look forward to the grand opening next week. Stay tuned!!


It’s been an amazing week of celebrating NAIDOC Week at West – a time where we celebrate the history and culture of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

·           Corey Payne and Elisha Mangal  - Rock Paintings

·           Christina & Kristy Brims & Jane Barnes – damper making

·           Billie Brims – traditional dance

·           Colleen Johnson – story telling

We will hold a Special Assembly on Friday morning in the gym. All parents/carers are welcome and encouraged to attend.

As part of our celebrations, we will have a FREE BBQ lunch on Friday.  Students will need to bring their snack for recess, as usual, and the canteen will have the usual snacks and drinks for sale, but there will be NO LUNCH ORDERS on Friday.



The District Mini Olympics were held on Tuesday 29th August.  A team of 36 students competed against all of the schools in the District and did Mildura West PS very proud, both on and off the track. 
 Many students finished in the top 2 of their events and will now be invited to compete in Bendigo in the Regional Athletics Carnival.  More information will be sent home soon!
