Fluffy Scones

Grades 3 and 4 were honoured and delighted to cook 10 dozen scones for a retirement celebration for Mrs Carmichael. Everyone was so careful with their folding and kneading, resulting in fluffy, light scones.




In Science, the Level 2 students participated in an experiment which taught them to understand that gravity is a force that pulls objects down to Earth. Student investigated how far a toy car is pushed by a ball when you change the height of the ramp. The students enjoyed experimenting with different ramp inclines and measured the distance using popsticks.

Mural for Mullum

A new mural is planned for Mullum! Mullum was lucky to win a competition held by Smiling Minds and receive funds for this wonderful project! The colour scheme, a collection of colours chosen to help stimulate the senses, will represent our stunning Mount Dandenong Ranges backdrop. The students will contribute to the mural with a collection of 'palm stones' crafted in terracotta clay and marked with impressions, symbolising themselves. The mural will introduce the first chapter in the story behind our school symbol, Bunjil, The Eagle.



Bucket Drumming

This term we have introduced Bucket Drumming!  What a fun way to make some funky rhythms and learn about the basics of drumming.  We are lucky to have the amazing Laura Harris who demonstrated some fantastic skills and rhythms to our students last week.

Mayoral Visit

The Grade 3 and 4 students were very excited to welcome a special visitor on Wednesday morning: Mayor Mike Symon! Students have been learning all about the roles and responsibilities of the local council, and they had some insightful questions for the mayor when he visited. Mayor Symon was very generous with his time and patient in his responses, we thank him for a wonderful addition to our learning this term. 



House Athletics

Athletics Day was another fabulous day at Mullum Primary School! We participated in many different events including sprints, high jump and shot put… just to name a few. 


The students certainly showed off their understanding of TEAMWORK on the day, with the wonderful support they provided each other and the cooperation that was on display through the team events.


A HUGE thank you to all of our parent helpers and of course the wonderful Mrs Pumpa for organising the entire day. 


Oh and of course… Go Wonga for being our overall winning house ❤️🎈❤️🎈

This week we welcomed 5 chickens. They are settling in very nicely and do seem to be getting used to all the children.



Solar Panels

Over the last two weeks ninety-six solar panels have been installed on the roof of the Learning Centre.  This system has been provided by the government through a Greening Schools Grant and will enable us to substantially reduce the school's impact on the environment.  We are working towards becoming a Resource Smart school, as we monitor and measure the use of resources like waste, water and electricity.  With our worm farms, composting systems, paper recycling, reducing waste, nude food lunches, water tanks for the vegetable gardens and now the solar panels, we are well on our way to leaving a smaller environmental footprint.




Throughout Term 3 all classes are working on the Character Strength - Teamwork.  Last Thursday all students worked in their Kooramook (Cross age) groups and participated in a range of team work activities, including cup stacking, hoola hoops, bean bag games, matchstick building.  The cross age activities occur on week 3, 6 and 9 each term and provide a wonderful opportunity for students across grade levels to work together. 



First 100 days

We were so excited last Friday to celebrate our Foundation students 100th day at school. Such a milestone was worthy of dressing up as their one hundred year old self, working with their buddies to count to one hundred in lots of different ways.

Performing Arts

A great start to Term 3 so far with our recent performance by the Grade 5/6 students who presented their Performing Arts Festival, held in the hall on Monday 25th July.  It was a very entertaining afternoon filled with class ensemble pieces played on the xylophones, ukuleles and percussion instruments.  We also listened to some very inspiring solo instrumental pieces from our instrumental students.




The Grade 2’s have been having fun learning how to the play the Ukulele this term.  We have been learning how to produce a good sound and also how to create some funky strumming rhythms as well.
