Term 3 Book Launch, 2019

Stories, smiles and students shining…that’s our Grade 1 Book Launch.

Through term 3 the Grade 1 students have been learning how to write wonderful narratives. They then proof read their writing, illustrated pages, created front covers and author profiles, all ready to share with their families on our special morning. Congratulations to all of the Grade 1 students! You could be famous authors of the future.

Heritage Day 2019

As part of our inquiry unit for term 3 ‘How has family life changed over time?’ the Grade 1 students experienced a Heritage Day at school. Dictation, handwriting and reciting number facts were part of the day. We made butter using cream, a marble and a jar and then ate it on a slice of bread. Olden day games such as pick up sticks, skipping, hula hoops and quoits were also enjoyed by the students. School life has certainly changed over time!

Mrs Sargood visits Grade 1

Mrs Sargood visited the Grade 1 students at Apollo Parkways. She spoke about her family and life in colonial Melbourne. Mrs Sargood showed us photos of her mansion, Rippon Lea, and told us about her large family. Students were surprised at how different childhood was for Mrs Sargood’s children to their own and practised handwriting using an ink pen.

Carlton Football Club - 'Respects'

Grade 3 students were visited by professional AFL players from the Carlton Football Club in the first week of term 3. The players who spoke to the students were Marc Murphy, Matthew Kennedy, Jack Silvagni, Darcy Lang, Harry McKay and Levi Casboult.
