This Thursday is Indonesian Independence Day. The children are finding out just what this means to Indonesia and how they celebrate this most important day. The Garuda, pictured, helps us remember the date. The 17 wing feathers represent the 17th day, the 8 tail feathers represent the 8th month of August and the 45 chest feathers represent the year 1945. So the Indonesian Date of Independence is : 17th August 1945 Selamat Hari Kemerdekaan Indonesia!!

Busselton Jetty Timeline

Today we constructed a timeline of the Busselton Jetty to see how it has changed over the years since it was built.  We had to match the correct year with the correct information and then put it all in order.  When we'd finished, the timeline was so long that it stretched into Room 11!  If you'd like to read it, it is also around the room on the windows and in the wet area.  We found…

They are pictured here singing “You Are a Star.” This is a great “Build Up” song that encourages students to be  happy with themselves just way they are. They also felt very proud of themselves when they memorised their fun facts about vegetables and spoke confidently in front of the school community. What stars they are and…

Book Week Dress Up

Book dress up day was sooooooo much fun!
I know it sounds totally crazy to try and combine these activities into one project. However that's just what the Room 15 students have managed to do over the last few weeks.They researched about sustainable fishing in WA, designed and made an 'Operation' style game to teach others about responsible fishing. So much learning took place on every level. Playing and evaluating the games was great fun for all.
