Class 5 & Class 2 Buddy day

Class 5 and their Class 2 buddies recently enjoyed a lovely excursion day together into the hills. On arriving at Rummery Park, our wonderful parent helpers set to work lighting a camp fire and helping students to chop veggies for the soup, which simmered while we walked. We looked and listened and noticed the small things…. as we made our way along the bank of Boggy Creek to the spectacular Minyon Falls Lookout. Out in the forest and by the creek, the day seemed to fly by; after a warm cup of camp soup we hopped aboard with our buddies and bussed back to school. Our appreciative thanks to all the parents who came to assist, it was lovely to spend the day with you all!!

Term 4 progress

This term we started with a main lesson called “Secrets of the Sacred Scripts”. Instead of a main lesson book we wrote in a scroll. We made paper out of recycled paper. It was so fun. We also made crochet pillows which took me a while but it was fun and I got there. We also did Pen Pal letters: one to Squamish and one to Vancouver Island. I am so excited about the reply! And something so exciting happened.. We got our FOUNTAIN PENS!! Our latest main lesson is called “Fantastical Fractions”. We only just started but we have still got some pages down. We are back to main lesson books and it is so fun. I love fractions. Soon we will do swimming lessons and soon we will make a small book out of recycled paper we made and make bread boards. I CAN’T WAIT. This term is AWESOME. We had buddies last term but only twice. Hopefully we can do more this term. We also have been doing these amazing drawings. I’ve finished mine!!! And we wouldn’t have done any of that without THE AMAZING ,THE ONE AND ONLY, TEERA AND BETHANIE.

Isabella Class 4

This term we have been doing so much fun stuff. We started with a main lesson called Secrets of the Sacred Scripts. It was a writing main lesson. We wrote to pen-pals and studied ancient writing and had so much fun! At the same time when we were doing our main lesson we were also doing a craft project: making pillows. We made two granny squares then sewed them together. After we finished our main lesson we got our FOUNTAIN PENS!!! We made handmade paper and we are going to make little books with the paper. We are also going to make chopping boards and a raffia hat which we plait then sew it into the shape of a hat. We also did these amazing mountain and sea drawings. I’m really looking forward to the rest of this term. We wouldn’t be able to do any of these amazing activities if it weren’t for BETHANIE AND TEERA.

A day at Ballarat Ragged Asylum School

Class Six immersed themselves in history by role playing a ragged bunch of waifs and orphans in our 1850’s style school. The class learnt about the harsh discipline of Victorian schools, the class system of the time and how genders were treated differently. The children were visited by the infamous travelling quack doctor, Dr Thackery, and subject to some of his more unusual treatments. Rachel Knight appeared as one of her ancestors and took the children on a journey of discovery through Australian archives. To finish the day we re-discovered the fun of traditional games playing hop scotch, marbles and jump rope.

Class 3 Camp

The Class 3 Camp was at Hosanna Farm Stay.
There were lots of animals at Hosanna. There were cows, chickens, a horse, guinea pigs, rabbits, wild boars, a dogs, goats, and we saw two goats being born.

I slept in a very comfortable cabin with four girls and I did a fun activity which was a treasure hunt. The second best activity was holding two twelve hour old goats and milk a cow, and we got to feed a calf and the chickens and guinea pigs.

We went on a walk to see the glow worms. We walked up 14 steps then after half an hour (we walked very fast) we suddenly stopped and kids said there was a wild dog sleeping in the middle of the train tracks. I thought it was true because we had to turn off our lights but it was only the cave, and the cave was full of glow worms.

My highlight was seeing two baby goats being born, they started as a big browny red whiteish bubble, then they popped. The second baby tried to stand up when its legs were still inside the mum’s tummy. It looked like Jesus was getting born because all the other animals gathered around.
