Helping Hands – Plastic Bottle Caps

0

Posted by Mrs Wembridge | Posted in Sustainability | Posted on June 27, 2018

Helping Hands project is a collaboration between disadvantaged employment support group Envision and Rotary Wyndham.

Envision is asking us to collect plastic bottle caps to help to make prosthetic hands for children in Third World countries. The bottle caps are turned into filament – a plastic thread used in 3D printers. The filament is then used to make prosthetic limbs. Bottle Caps are recyclable but different to reprocess due to their size.

Collected plastic bottle caps can be delivered to Room 6 anytime.

DID YOU KNOW?

This tram is filled with 50,000 coffee cups! Guess What? Australians use more than 50,000 take away coffee cups every half hour. That’s 1 billion a year. Watch this for more information: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zF9Rd8Cw-Xc

If we lined up all the coffee cups used each year in Australia they would stretch round the world……twice!

Our Year 5 and Year 6 students spend Term 1 working on creating radio segments in their Music session, and here are the results from the students who completed their segments and are happy to share. Please share this around because the more people who get to hear these amazing (and sometimes hilarious) segments, the bigger our audience!

Walk Safely to School – Friday 18 May

0

Posted by Mrs Wembridge | Posted in Foundation, Sustainability, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, Year 4, Year 5, Year 6 | Posted on May 13, 2018

On Friday 18 May it is Walk Safely to School Day
We are promoting our three Active Travel paths as a way of travelling to school safely.
Staff members will be meeting students at 8:20am at each of the three Active Paths starting points and walk with them back to school
The three starting points are:
1. Westleigh Gardens (Geelong Rd) – Mrs Wembridge, Mrs Pettigrew
2. Rushford Lane Car Park (Synnott St) – Miss Scarrott, Mrs Lacy
3. Soldiers Reserve (College Rd) – Mr Reichenbach, Gina/Riley O’Keefe, Mr Anglim

We understand that some people live too far to allow their children to walk or ride all the way, however dropping children off down the road and allowing them to walk/ride part of the way is still “getting active”!

Foundation story time with author Elizabeth Honey

Posted by Miss Elliott | Posted in Foundation, Library, Literacy, Reading | Posted on March 4, 2018

Foundation students were excited about their recent visit to Werribee Library to have a special story time with Australian Author, Poet and Illustrator, Elizabeth Honey.

Elizabeth Honey shared some of her books with us and the journey she took whilst trying to get her award winning book, ‘Not a Nibble!’ published. The Foundation students loved the stories and poems she shared and were excited to write about them when they got back to school.

Thank you to all the people who helped on the day and a special thanks to Elizabeth Honey and Werribee Library for helping us organise such a fantastic experience.
