Last week Werribee Primary School had its first ever Spanish Fiesta Day! It was a fantastic day and everyone had great fun! Teachers and students came dressed up in Spanish inspired clothing and learned many different Spanish dances with the help of a dance incursion. The foundation students had some fantastic “Day of the Dead” face paint done by our amazing year 6 students and all them had a blast! We also had the chance to try some Spanish food and the churros were a hit with the students!


We would like to thank all the teachers and students in dressing up and participating in the day and we hope to have another fiesta again!

A MASSIVE Thank you to the Specialist Teachers for organising the day! 🙂

Ole! Ole! Ole!

Posted by Mrs Wembridge | Posted in Student leadership, Sustainability, Year 5 | Posted on September 23, 2017


We became Extinction Fighters at the “Love Your Locals” day at Werribee Open Range Zoo on Thursday 7 Sep. We were one of 11 schools participating. We gave one of the new EBBs (Eastern Barred Bandicoot) a new name. We chose ‘Cherish’ because we love the EBBs. We have had the opportunity to name 3 other bandicoots over previous years – Cooryong, CoCo and Crash. The Zoo currently has 30 EBBs in their breeding pens, as well as Maremma dogs in training to protect the EBBs.

NED came by Werribee Primary School earlier this month and it made a splash with everyone! through the use of awesome and fun Yoyo’s NED was able to help the students at Werribee Primary School to Never give up, Encourage others and to Do your best!

Students had such a great time that yoyo’s were the huge hit! If you still have your yoyo keep practicing your skills to learn new tricks and remember to Never give up, Encourage others and to Do your best!

Here are some pictures of the event!

Scienceworks Years 5 & 6

Posted by Miss Scarrott | Posted in Science, STEM, Year 5, Year 6 | Posted on August 28, 2017

On Thursday the 10th of August the Year 5 & 6 students had super fun day at Scienceworks. They attended a ‘Cool Stuff’ science show, visited the pumping station and had a ball exploring all of the amazing hands on activities in the Scienceworks museum.

Cool Stuff! A 30-minute science show using some ‘very cool’ liquid nitrogen demonstrations to illustrate the properties of solids, liquids and gases. Changes of state, expansion and contraction were all demonstrated using lots of fog, froth and fun.

Get Pumped! –  Students used a museum iPad that included videos, animations and other media to bring to life the amazing engineering feats involved in the construction of the Spotswood Pumping Station in the 1890s. They heard some stinky stories from the straining well and explored the magnificent Engine Room.

Posted by Miss Scarrott | Posted in Science, STEM, Year 6 | Posted on August 23, 2017

On Friday the 18th of August the year 6 students had an amazing experience visiting Suzanne Cory High School. They were lucky enough to participate in a number of hands on science lessons. The visit also doubled as a transition day to give the year 6 students some insight to what it will be like at Secondary School. They conducted various experiments and further developed their science knowledge with support from the teachers and students at Suzanne Cory.

The activities included;

  • Methane bubbles
  • Rainbow fizz flame test
  • Red cabbage indicator
  • Dry ice
  • Motors

The biggest ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs’ definitely came from the methane bubbles session!
