Last Monday approximately 20 of our

students and parents represented our
school at the annual Anzac Day march
and service in Rye. On behalf of our
school community, our school
captains, Mia Taylor and Bailey
German, laid a beautiful gold and
green wreath recognising the sacrifices
made by Australian men and women
during past and present conflicts.
Thank you to our students and their
families for their support on this
important day

District Cross Country

Curriculum Day
Queens Birthday Public Holiday


On Friday the senior students rotated throughout different spelling related activities for the Spellathon. The
grade 3 undercover area was turned into a
chalk filled graffiti of spelling words. The
children from each group chose one word to
cover with 5 cent coins as well, which on its
own raised $38! I think the children enjoyed
the spelling activities. Thanks to all who
participated and dressed up, collected
sponsors and remembered to bring along their
5cent coins.

Tootgarook Wetland Education Program 2016

Our Junior School Councillors will be involved in this program over the next 5 weeks. The first two workshop
will be held at school beginning tomorrow - Friday 29th April. The next three will be held at
Tootgarook Wetlands.
The aim of this program is to engage local students in the environmental significance of the
Tootgarook Wetlands. The students will become Junior Environmental Scientists and learn
about the wetlands through practical workshops to learn about environmental monitoring.
Students will learn how to test water quality and identify local animals. Students are expected
to share this new knowledge to others at school through assemblys, class presentations,
posters or displays. The students will gain new experiences in sustainability and scientific
investigation skills. They will develop a passion and empathy for their local environment.
Through engaging the students in their local environment, we aim to raise the profile and community
perceptions of the Tootgarook Wetlands.
