World Earth Day - Australia

By School Council, in School Council - Wednesday, 22 April 2020

This year, the School Council’s focus has been on environmental issues. You told us that you wanted to learn more about animals around the world, so whilst still at school, the School Council had begun to organise a whole school Australian Day to focus on the recent devastating bush fires and consider ways in which we could learn about Australia’s varied wildlife.

As today is World Earth Day, the School Council would like to offer you additional home learning ideas and activities all about– you guessed it – Australia!

Look at the attached document for a range of activities, for all ages, for you to complete at home over the next few weeks. If you would like photos of your learning to be displayed on our Facebook page, send us the photos via Facebook messenger.

Have fun!

School Council

By School Council, in School Council - Tuesday, 26 November 2019

Our School Council representatives, who were elected at the start of term, met for their second meeting of the year.

Representatives were presented with their official badges. They had previously voted for the colour of the badge to be green to represent the Council’s focus – environmental issues.

The council had asked the school for ideas on how to be more environmentally friendly. Today, they went through the suggestions and collated them. The feedback will be presented during assembly on Monday.
