Sustainability News

Students across the school this week have been working hard on a variety of projects to help spread the message about the impact of plastic pollution and ways we can help to reduce it. Class 4BH created some beautiful images of ocean creatures as a response to the book, The Mess We Made, Class 3D came up with some very original ideas about how we can help and Class 2JJ have written a recipe for how to make a delicious carrot and pumpkin soup from imperfect carrots which would otherwise be wasted (a great idea for Halloween).

Watch this space for ways to celebrate National Recycling Week, 8th-14th November.

Year 6 Day Camp – 21st May 2019 (Day Camp photos in our Gallery section)

On our Day Camp we grew our leadership skills of perspective and active listening as we learned about Aboriginal culture and how to fish and hunt. We tried some bush tucker such as damper and kangaroo.  There was so much knowledge and understanding of the land and animals that we never realised, like the Aboriginal people adapted themselves, not the environment. We also did lots of other activities like grinding grain, painting our faces with a totem animal and making fire. Lots of parents came to help us with our barbeque and then we did a night walk through the forest to look for native animals – so many spiders and possums! All our learning was done outside surrounded by beautiful native trees and bushes. At the end of the day, our most prized possessions are our memories of the great time and learning we had at the Perth Hills Discovery Centre. Charli, Emma, Charleze, Anna, Luka, Arwen
