As part of our HASS geography topic, students have been learning about different countries around the world. They created an online report about their country which included a recipe for a traditional type of food.
Students wrote the recipe as a procedure. They then looked at the ingredients required and ordered everything from Woolworths online while making sure they stuck to their $20 budget.
Students then prepared and cooked their foods in the staff room and served them to their family at open night!
Over the last few weeks, Five Blue have been working hard writing narratives for their buddies. They interviewed their buddies to ask what kind of characters and storyline they would like, before getting to work creating their story.
After completing a draft, students then created a good copy of their narrative on their macbooks complete with animations and voiceovers, and all of this happened with book week sandwiched in the middle! We can’t wait to share our finished stories with our buddies!
On Thursday 24th May, our Year Five’s went on an excursion to Fremantle to learn more about Australian history. Some of our stops included:
- The roundhouse, which was WA’s first prison
- A replica of the Dutch trading ship, The Duyfken, which carried goods to neighbouring countries like Indonesia, and explored some of Australia’s coastline in the 1600’s
- The Fremantle Prison, which we learnt was built by convicts along with other buildings around Fremantle and Perth.
- Monument Hill – where monuments stand to honour soldiers who have fought in wars throughout our history.
We had a fantastic day and we were all very thankful that the weather held off for our excursion. A HUGE thank you to our parent volunteers who helped make the day a safe and enjoyable excursion for all!

On Friday 10th February, students from years 5 and 6 took part in our ‘wellbeing day’. Students were grouped in their houses and rotated through four different activities for the day. Miss Hynes & Miss Thomas led a healthy eating session where students enjoyed delicious, fresh dips along with celery and carrot sticks. Mrs Ryan held a meditation session which incorporated reflective music and quiet activities and finally, Mr Naden and Jacob Aquino organised different fitness stations and team building activities which involved a lot of running, jumping, muscle building and communication. All activities were aimed at improving our physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing and of course, our teamwork skills and house spirit!
The day was a huge success and we look forward to more Wellbeing Days in the future!
