News & Events

New Nature Play Space

Straight from the International Flower and Garden Show our brand new nature play space will be arriving at school from Monday next week with installation due to start immediately. 

 

The contract landscape architect that has completed much of our recent upgrade on our embankments was needing a new home for his installation at the Show and with money raised from the Parents’ Association over the last few years we are able to pay to have this installed. 

 

The log fort is just one small part of the large new play space that includes a  log tipi, tyre trail, green steppe, friendship circle, new sandpit, water bikes, a green igloo, a bamboo tunnel, wetlands play area. 

Chicken hatching

After two wonderful weeks our newly hatched chicks are leaving us. 

 

We have had many opportunities to observe them as they hatched and dried their feathers; watching them peck and feed for the first time; start to grow their wing feathers and keep themselves warm under the warming lamp. 

 

Our 15 chicks provided many opportunities for our Foundation and Grade 1 students to take observations, draw and label diagrams, pay attention to the features of a chick, discuss care for small creatures and for learning about the cycle of life for a chicken. 

Member for Ringwood visits

We were fortunate enough to have Dustin Halse, State Member for Ringwood, visit our school last week.

 

We highlighted many of our fantastic programs and the new grounds we are establishing for our community to use. 

 

Our School Captains took Dustin on a walk around the school, which included a visit to our Grade 1 and Foundation students and their newly hatched chicks.

Badge Presentation Ceremony

On Monday we welcomed Michael Sukkar to our assembly to present the leadership badges to all our Grade 6 Captains and our Junior School Councillors. 

 

Following the ceremony we headed to the kitchen for a coffee and a chat and don't forget, a good opportunity for a photo.

District Swimming Carnival

Congratulations to Isabel (Year 5) and Joe (Year 6) who participated in events at the Ringwood District Swimming Carnival on Monday 18 February. 

 

Isabel and Joe both swam second in the freestyle and backstroke events in their respective age groups and Joe swam first in the butterfly. 

 

Joe will go on to represent Mullum Primary at the Division Swimming Carnival on 4 March. 

 

We wish him all the very best as he moves on to the next level of competition.

Radishes

Today our Grade 3 & 4 students harvested fresh produce from the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden.  

 

This produce market was open for sale to families after school today.  

 

The list of fresh vegetables included lettuce, bok choy, carrots, spring onions, potatoes, garlic and radishes.  

 

Never before have we had such huge radishes, some were even bursting at the seams.

 

Money raised from the sale of the vegetables will go towards the autumn planting when we return from the break.
