Microscopes, magnifying glasses and thermometers – OH MY!
Thanks to the generosity of our school community, we have recently purchased some new science equipment including more microscopes, a digital microscope, a number of magnifying glasses, equipment for experiments with batteries, stethoscopes, digital scales and digital thermometers.
We can’t wait for our amazing Mullum students to be onsite and use the equipment. There is something for everybody! The investigations and experiments are going to be so much more interesting and fun with this new equipment.
Mullum Marvellous Mystery Night!
On Thursday, we hosted an Online Fundraising event for our families. It was a Mullum Marvelous Mystery Night! There were many laughs, costume changes and a few bizarre moments throughout the night.
The money we have raised will go towards new sports equipment students will be able to use at recess and lunch breaks.
Thank you to our sponsors for the generous donations which made our event that little bit more exciting! Who doesn't love a prize?
We hope everyone has a wonderful, restful holiday break. We will see you all in Term 4.
Check out our 'Students' tab to see what we have been up to in the classroom. It changes every fortnight.

Specialists in Remote Learning
Our Specialist Program has still been running strong during Remote Learning at Mullum.
In Italian, students have been learning the colour names. They found a range of colourful items in their homes and created posters.
In PE, students where using their ball skills such as throwing, catching and bouncing.
Art has been very creative where students have been using different lines to create artwork.
In Music, students learnt the power of dance and how it can influence our mood.
Last week we celebrated Book Week. Our love for books and reading grew as we immersed ourselves in stories from ''Old Worlds, New Worlds and Other Worlds'.
We had a dress up assembly on Friday where our students came dressed as their favourite book characters. Can you guess who they are?
“You can find magic
wherever you look.
Sit back and relax,
all you need is a book.”
― Dr. Seuss
On Wednesday, we had a whole school Science Day for National Science Week. The theme for 2021 was ‘Food, Different by Design’.
At Mullum, we looked at the chemical changes food can make when it’s mixed with different substances. We had whole school LIVE experiments run by the teachers that students attended via WebEx.
Maybe keep us out of the kitchen for a while. Instead of a delicious home cooked dinner, you might get a vinegar and bi carb soda explosion!
Book Week, 2021
Each year since 1945 the CBCA has brought children and books together across Australia through CBCA Book Week. During this time schools and public libraries spend one glorious week celebrating books and Australian children's authors and illustrators. This year award-winning author, illustrator and film-maker Shaun Tan has illustrated the CBCA Book Week 2021 theme, 'Old Worlds, New Worlds, Other Worlds'.
At Mullum P.S we are very excited to be exploring lots of different books during Book Week. If there was ever a great time to inspire a love of reading quality Australian literature in our young people —now is the time!
During our assembly on Friday 27th August students will present a short highlight of some of the books they have been exploring in class and are invited to dress up as their favourite book character for a special parade.
Keep reading! Keep exploring! Keep learning!
Whole School House Athletics Day
We feel very grateful at Mullum Primary School that we were able to have our Whole School House Athletics Day on Thursday 5th August.
It was a fabulous day where students participated in many activities including long jump, high jump, hurdles and sprints. A special mention to our super star PE teacher, Mrs Pumpa, for organising this wonderful day!
