Student - Led Walkthroughs
It was fantastic to see so many of our Mullum Families at the Student Led Walkthroughs on Tuesday night – and of course our whole school launch of the UR Strong program. It was a great opportunity for our students to show, and talk with their parents about the work they have been doing with Friendology 101. Below is a snapshot of some of the great work on display…
Our Grade 1 students have been learning all about farm animals and reasons we have farms as the 'hook' for their new 'Talk 4 Writing' text, The Little Red Hen. They loved spending the day at Edendale Farm where they planted a bean, fed the animals and made creatures out of dried plant materials.
Due to COVID restrictions, our Morning Tea has been postponed until further notice.
We are still accepting donations, raising funds for the Cancer Council that go towards vital cancer research, support services, prevention programs, and advocacy.

Science with the Grade 5 and 6 Students
Our science experiments just keep getting better! The latest in a string of experiments looking at the different properties of substances, was the creation of their very own lava lamp! Students have been looking at the different compounds of solids, liquids and gases, and the physical and chemical changes that occur when these substances are mixed together. In this experiment, students used oil, water, food colouring and Alka-Seltzer tablets to create their very own lava lamp! They watched as the addition of the tablet caused a chemical change in their solution, and with the use of some lamps, turned their reactions into a sight not to be missed.

URStrong at Eastland!
The Maroondah Positive Education Network in partnership with Eastland and the Maroondah City Council are bringing URSTRONG's Friendology program to life in Eastland.
As you might be aware, this program teaches our young people how to manage their own relationship issues via a common 'kid’ friendly language that empowers them to do that.
In this interactive space, different schools in the Maroondah Council will be displaying what they are learning each month, which will be a different topic that fuels friendships – i.e. Friendship is RESPECT in June.
This month Mullum is featured in the UR Strong Friendology Ninja Zone at Eastland. If you are visiting Eastland in the holidays, please call past the Ninja Zone, located in the Link Mall, level 1 near Coffee Club – opposite the Maternal and Child Health Centre.
Our school has partnered with The Fathering Project, and together with their help, we want to keep building our school’s community of Dads and Father-figures.
We will host an official Fathering Group Launch event at the school on Thursday 12 August at 7pm. This is, of course, dependent on the health advice at the time. More information about this night will follow via Compass updates and the school social media accounts.
Pirates of the Curry Bean
Despite the disappointment of not being able to present our Musical at Karralyka Theatre this year, we are very excited about creating and producing a 'movie-esque' production which will be available to purchase on either a DVD or Download, when we are able to return back to school.
We will be using our beautiful school grounds as our sets and backgrounds, and we are looking at the other creative ideas to come into fruition.
A huge shoutout to all cast members, classes and staff who have all been amazing towards the lead up of our Whole School Production of Pirate of the Curry Bean!
