Sleep under the Stars at Mullum PS

At Mullum PS we recently planned sleep over on the school oval for a night to raise awareness and to experience what it’s like to be homeless.

Families who chose to participate collected sponsorship money to raise funds for The Launch Housing Foundation.

It was a great night that enjoyed by all who attended and has raised over $1700 for this very worthy charity.

Hong Kong Visitors - Monday 7 October

Mullum Primary School hosted twenty-nine teachers and principals from Pat Heung Central Primary School (PHCPS), Hong Kong.  The focus of the visit was to learn more about implementing Positive Education into the primary school classroom.  PHCPS are leading the way in Hong Kong in the implementation of Positive Education and spent a very productive two hour professional learning session with teachers from Mullum Primary School discussing ways to work with our parent communities to create a context, both at school and at home, where students and families will flourish.   

 

This is Pat Heung’s second visit to Mullum Primary School and we are now exploring ways to engage in a formal Sister School Partnership.

School Captain Visit to Parliament House

Our School Captains, Bianca and Gilbert,  joined Dustin Halse MP and other student leaders from across Maroondah, at Parliament House on Friday to discuss community awards. 

 

After workshopping ideas it was decided that a new award called, Ringwood Youth Recognition Award, should be created and Junior School Councillors will determine worthy recipients of this award.  

 

Dustin will then come to our assembly to present these awards.  A great outcome for our students and the work they undertake in our schools every day.

Opening of the new Nature Play space

Mullum Primary School is proud to announce the opening of its new Nature Play space. The positive impact on mental health when people interact with nature is well documented.  Spending time in nature appreciating the beautiful sunsets, landscapes and seascapes all give time for the body and mind to heal and relax.  This appreciation underpins Mullum Primary School’s desire to provide a school context where children’s mental and physical health is considered in the design of spaces inside and outside of classrooms. 

The new Nature Play space, has come directly from the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show in Melbourne, March 2019.  It is the brainchild of Landscape Architect, Richard Bellemo from RB Landscapes, Victorian Schools Garden Program and Nursery and Garden Industry of Victoria. The installation at the Show, featured alternative playing options for children where interacting with the space is limited only by a child’s imagination and not defined by the piece of play equipment.  There are climbing walls, sandpits, stranded boats, a bamboo tunnel and igloo, a mindfulness space, billabong and waterfalls, bikes that pumped water, and steel hills.  The installation has been transplanted into the Mullum Primary School creating new and interesting places to play and investigate.  We know that this space will help our students to flourish.
