Last Friday we were joined by Courtney Fink-Downes to learn about and celebrate National Tree Day. We talked about what native trees and plants are - what role they play in our environment and how important they are to our ecosystem. Courtney then showed us how to plant some trees and later in the day we planted them along the fenceline of our car park where we hope that they will grow to be a buffer from the new construction adjacent to the school. It was a wonderful experience for all, and the first time gardening for some.
Our dinosuar week culminated in a dig for dinosaur bones at North Broulee Beach. We had a stunning day for it, with the clearest of blue skies and warm winter sunshine. We dug for bones (and we think some were left buried for the local dogs!), measured out different sized dinosaurs and sculpted dinosaurs, skulls and volcanoes with sand.How fortunate we are to live in this beautiful area.
Our whole school Athletics Carnival was a lot of fun last week! We began the day with our house March Past with Kindergarten leading the way. They did a wonderful job keeping in time with their house team mates and following the captains. Watch the videos below to see the war cries for each team. There are also some photos below of a few of the rotations. For further photos please follow this link to see some fabulous action shots taken by Mr McDonald.
