Casey Safety School

On Monday the 31st of March, Prep students went on their first excursion to Casey Safety Village in Cranbourne. Throughout Term 1 the students have been learning about the ‘community’ and ‘safety’. This was a great excursion to consolidate their learning. The sun was out, bikes were ridden, students dressed up as a crossing supervisor and Fire House were all great experiences had by all.

Our Indonesian Experience

Over the last two weeks we have had  Bu Siti and Pak Anto, from our Sister School in Jakata, Indonesia -  SDN Lempuyangwangi -  visit our school.  It has been wonderful having them as part of our staff. During their time at our school Bu Siti and Pak Anto presented cultural information about Indonesia and the Yogyakarta District to all our students through class visits, taught Indonesian and songs and participated in Asian cooking and art activities.  As part of these two weeks our school had a whole school dress up day and students participated in a workshop where they either learned to play gamelan music or an  Indonesian dance, and experienced aspects of Indonesian culture.  When Bu Siti and Pak Anto return to Indonesia  we will be using ICT to  make connections between our students and our Sister School SDN Lempuyangwangi students through a range of online and collaborative interactions between our schools led by teachers and students.
Lessons in the Indonesian language are currently conducted for students in Grades 1 and 2. This will be extended in 2015.

The students learnt about different types of leaders, the challenges and rewards that come with being leaders and the importance of listening to others.  Molly, Alex, Jake and Ella have shared their stories in last week’s newsletter.

Divisional Swimming Carnival

On Wednesday 12th March 16 students from Grade 3-6 who had previously qualified to represented our District, competed at the Divisional Swimming Carnival held at Noble Park. Our District is part of the Casey North Division, where there are a lot of very impressive swimmers which makes it very hard for our swimmers to progress to the next level. However, all our swimmers can be incredibly proud of themselves for their effort they put in on the day and to simply have progressed as far as they did.  Congratulations to Shelby K who has qualified to compete at the Regional Swimming Carnival on Thursday 27th March. Best of luck Shelby!

The children had a lovely time introducing their Buddies to their parents and they ate some yummy treats that their families brought along for them. Thank you to all the visitors for taking the time to come along and share this special time  with us.
