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.

Harmony Day

Today we celebrated all things cultural.

Our Persian families taught us about the traditions of Haft-Sin as a welcome to the new year.

Then we were treated to a lesson in Bollywood!



Onomatapoeic Artwork

Grade 5 & 6 students have been working hard on their graphic design skills discovering contrast or complimentary colour combinations.



Hungry Caterpillars

In Foundation, we have been reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. It has been very helpful in supporting our learning about the days of the week and our counting strategies. We created this display to help us remember the order of the days of the week. We also learned about the life cycle of a caterpillar. We had a lot of fun!



Crack the Code

We always aim to read with accuracy, fluency, and prosody (not too fast, not too slow – but just right as Goldilocks would say) We look carefully at the vocabulary contained in the text and decode unfamiliar words by applying our knowledge of letter- sound relationships, using our understanding of morphology (the meaningful parts that make up a word), and by trying to understand the word in the context of the story.


During one investigation we looked at the many different words authors used instead of the word ‘said’. We discovered that we could sort them into groups according to their purpose and intensity.



Kinder Visit

The Kindergarten and Childcare teachers of our Foundation students came for a visit.  They were happy to see we had settled in to our new classrooms and were making lots of friends.
