Camp Day

No camp… no worries! Our Grade 3/4 students had a fantastic Camp Day today. They didn’t let a little rain get in the way! From making damper around a camp fire to outdoor games focusing on team work, it’s safe to say it was just as good as the real thing. We are sure there are some tired campers out there tonight.


We are back!

We are over the moon to have all of our students back on site at Mullum Primary School. We are so very proud of our students and their families for their resilience, persistence and hard work during our Remote Learning journey. Our focus in the classroom has been reconnecting with our friends and teachers, and continuing to develop our social skills with one another.


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.


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!


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! 




Fathering Project

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. 

Join our school’s Fathering Project Group Portal 


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.

If you have any questions about the our Fathering Group, please get in touch with Sam Younes via Compass or via or The Fathering Project team here



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.



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.


The Farm!

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. 


Leadership Badge Presentation

Today Michael Sukkar MP, Federal Member for Deakin, visited us to present our student with their leadership badges. Here are our School Captains with Michael.  We welcomed back on site parents of our student leaders to help us celebrate.

Performing Arts

It’s been a busy term in the performing arts with our choir, band and instrumental programs all going full steam ahead! We are looking forward to presenting our Whole School Musical early Term 3 and the cast have already started rehearsals.  Our show for this year is ‘Pirates of the Curry Bean’ and will be held on the Monday 26th & Tuesday 27th July at the Karralyka Theatre!


Mullum Primary School Library Goes Online 

Our gorgeous school library is about to go live on the Raeco website.  Photographers visited this week and captured this beautiful image of our new library space, surrounded by our classrooms and quality books to borrow and take home to share with your family.



Seed Collecting

This week our Grade 3 and Grade 4 students have been harvesting seeds from carrots and beetroots that had run to seed in our Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden program.  We had fun making our own seed packets and look forward to planting them in our garden very soon.




Foundation's First Full Week! 

This week marks a very exciting week in Foundation at Mullum Primary School. Our students completed their first full week! They ​have spent the first 5 weeks attending school on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, while our Foundation teachers completed one on one Numeracy and Literacy assessments on Wednesdays. 

The Foundation students spent the week learning all about the word 'tin' and the sounds that are in this word.

Visit from the local MP

Just before the snap lockdown, Dustin Halse MP for Ringwood, visited our school.  Together with school captains, Maddy and Lucas, we took Dustin on a tour of the new buildings and grounds.  It had been 15 months since Dustin was on site at Mullum Primary School and he was very impressed with all of the recent building and ground works.  Here we are admiring the view across our undercover netball, oval, play facilities and on to Mt Dandenong. 


From the Kitchen Garden

The year in the kitchen started with a mystery taste test. The Grade 3 and 4 students needed to be brave, take acceptable risks and try to identify foods they could smell, feel and taste but not see. Everyone did a brilliant job stepping outside of their comfort zone. Some people enjoyed foods they previously have not liked. We discussed how some foods have very strong tastes eg celery, and were often used combined with other ingredients.


During their Gardening session, the students began learning about worms and composting as they set up class worm farms. These will be kept in the classrooms so that the children can feed the worms regularly and observe any changes occurring.
