Grade 6 Project Based Learning (PBL)

The grade 6 children have turned into “Junior Archaeologists” as part of their PBL.

We have been really fortunate to have one of our prep parents, Emma Oliver (archaeologist) lead us in this exiting learning experience. Emma has spent many days getting The Dig ready, thankyou Emma

Students and teachers spent several hours on The Dig yesterday, finding artefacts and researching where the items came from. They will investigate the past, to help understand the present and the future.

Children will be in teams of 3 and spend many hours on The Dig, locating artefacts and then researching each item to understand Australian history. For more great pictures check out the photo gallery.

National Ride2School Day

National Ride2school Day is to encourage our students and families to be involved in any active travel such as walking, riding and skateboarding. Next week we will have our first Walking Bus for Term 1 to coincide with National Ride2School Day.  We have the Walking Bus once a month with the police and Neighbourhood Watch supervising it. Everyone is welcome: walkers, bikes, trikes, scooters and even prams. The ‘bus’ will leave the corner of Washington Drive and Riverside Avenue at 8:30am. You can ‘board’ the bus on the way!!

Have you seen your child at school lately? Log onto Seesaw.

Last Friday we sent a flyer home. Have you logged on to view

your child’s profile yet? It’ll show you a few snaps of classroom happenings.

What is Seesaw?

Seesaw is a secure online Journal to record photos, observations and comments, to build up a record of your child’s experiences during their time with us. This platform allows us to work with parents and carers to share information and communicate the children’s learning in and outside of the classroom.

Why use Seesaw?

We are always looking at ways we can improve our communication with parents. Seesaw will allow us to share more of what your child is doing at school and provide a window into the classroom.



Last Friday Tom Pratt and Ruby Hancock represented the school at the Sunraysia Primary Schools Swimming competition. Ruby competed in freestyle and breaststroke, coming 2nd and 5th in her heats. Tom competed in freestyle placing 4th in his heat. A wonderful effort by both students.
