Our Excursion to CREEC!
Canning River Eco Education Centre
How lucky were we to go on two excursions in two weeks?!
Our class entered the Celebration of Science Logo Competition and were thrilled (Mrs Cogger actually jumped for joy!) to find out our class had been chosen… out of hundreds of classes… as the winner!
We won a class prize of a ‘free excursion’ to CREEC!
Mrs Cogger provided us with the opportunity to participate through her task on our Purposeful Practice Grid so we decided that she had to come too!
We participated in a ‘Bush Detective’ investigation where we…
- used puzzles and examples of animal evidence such as skulls, feathers and nests to investigate what lives in and around the Canning River Regional Park.
- applied our detective skills on a nature walk and recorded our observations by making a model of a bush animal to take home.
Sally…our teacher for the morning… was very impressed with our Science knowledge and lovely manners! We had a fantastic time together and can’t wait to show you what we learnt at our Open Night! Thanks Mrs Cogger for another great opportunity for Science!
And we LOVED the playground!
A couple of reminders:
- This night is time for you and your child to share learning together -please make it count – be enthusiastic and positive!
- In addition to going to your child’s classroom, please make sure you visit – THE NUMERACY EXPO in the hall and the BOOK FAIR in the library.
- It is important to note that the Open Night is not the time or place to discuss student learning or behaviour concerns with your teacher- this needs to be done in a pre-arranged two-way meeting time.
- Parents are expected to keep their children with them the whole time (unless a child has been asked to ‘host’ at a particular display as prearranged).
- Young children and toddlers must be carefully supervised at all times and not permitted to touch classroom equipment etc.
- Parents are reminded how much time and effort goes into setting up for Open Nights – please take a moment to thank staff for their efforts. These opportunities only happen through hard work, generosity and a team effort and should never be just taken for granted. A quick email or a word of thanks puts a spring in the step of end of term teachers, who give so much to your children and our school, in so many different ways.
- Mass starts at 6pm – parents are asked to please be considerate and not park in the church carpark, thank you. Some families may like to attend Mass after the Open Night – you are of course very welcome.
We are looking forward to seeing you tomorrow night and trust that you will enjoy a wonderful opportunity to affirm, thank and encourage your children!
Looking forward to seeing you all soon! 🙂

A sincere and heartfelt THANK YOU to all our wonderful dads, and special grandfathers for making the time to pop in to our Father’s Day breakky on Friday!
There is really nothing better than having you all in our school at the one time! Looking out over a sea of smiling faces, enjoying their children’s company is simply magical!
Year One was luckily enough to visit Browne’s Dairy!
In class we have been talking about the features of places, the processes involved in food production as well as learning about the animals involved in these process as part of report writing genre.
We visited Browne’s Dairy to see our new found knowledge in action! We saw a real cow…and got to have a go at milking her…learnt how to make yoghurt as well as taste test a few samples, learnt new facts about the production of milk and saw milk bottles being processed on the factory floor.
Farmer Damien was a great tour guide! He even dressed Mrs Roberto in some hygiene attire and explained all the things the Browne’s workers have to wear…hair and beard net, coat with studs not buttons, no jewellery or makeup and safe footwear…we want no nasty surprises in our yoghurt tub!
Mrs Roberto was a great sport and happily posed for a photo!
We had a great afternoon and were excited to bring home a special Browne’s Dairy bag along with a yummy sample of flavoured milk! Thank you to the wonderful mums and dads who came with us!
We secretly loved the bus ride too…next time we might just drive around in the bus for the day!
Thanks Browne’s Dairy!
