Do you have any spare change?


Posted by Mrs Wembridge | Posted in Student leadership, Sustainability | Posted on May 27, 2017

The Common Cents challenge is to collect 300 – 5cent pieces. Classes have been given a poster to mark off the coins collected. Money raised will support the Werribee Open Range Zoo’s Threatened Species Program for the Eastern Barred Bandicoot. Werribee Primary School has supported the Love Your Locals program for several years.

Money will be collected on Thursday 8th June.

Each completed 5 cent poster is enough money to care for an Eastern Barred Bandicoot for one month.

Book Fair and ‘Pirate Day’


Posted by Miss Scarrott | Posted in Donations, Library, Literacy | Posted on May 24, 2017

Next week is Werribee Primary School Book Fair. Our theme for Book fair is Pirates starting on Tuesday 30th May until Friday 2nd June. The library will be open each day from 3.10pm  – 3.45pm.


“Arrrrr me Hearties!”

To celebrate the book fair the Junior School Council have organised a ‘Dress like a Pirate Day’ on Thursday the 1st of June. We want everyone to come to school in their best pirate outfits! That could be a pirate, a parrot, a character from ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ or something that would fit in with ‘Pirate Day’. Your gold coin donation will go towards resources for the library. There will be a parade for all of the pirates in the Learning Gallery on Thursday afternoon. Foundation – 2 will be at 2:20pm and Years 3 – 6 at 2:40pm. The library will be open for book sales from 2:10pm – 3:45pm on Thursday.

Thank you.

Cross Country


Posted by Miss Scarrott | Posted in Sport | Posted on May 4, 2017

Yesterday a fantastic bunch of year 3 to 6 students competed in the Werribee District Cross Country. All students demonstrated our school values and were very successful overall. Werribee Primary School finished 6th out of 10 schools. Manor Lakes finished first winning the shield this year.

Congratulations to the 4 students who have made it through to the next round;

Braydan from 6S finished 3rd

Lou Lou from 5S finished 2nd

Adrijana from 5B finished 5th

Sabrina from 6S finished 3rd

Thank you to Mrs Staehr for organising the day and Mr Hyde, Mrs Smider and Miss Scarrott for helping us on the day. Also, thank you to Hailee (Emily’s mum) for taking some amazing photos.

Press play to view a slideshow of the day.

As I’m getting ready to start running everything goes silent, unexpectedly I hear the word ‘GO!’ I run and I’m pushing myself to the front, I let everything go and just run. I don’t let anything distract me. My competition started dropping behind me and I just kept going. ‘Ahh’ I got a stitch, but I kept my mind on my goal and I pushed straight through it like I’m breaking through a wall. I was going to stop, but I didn’t have long to go, so I said to myself ‘No I’m not giving up I’m going to keep running, but at the same time I have to try to preserve my energy till the end, even if I don’t win I’ve won my own race by bettering myself. ‘ So I keep running and I get 2nd place, but then he came back up behind me and he got in front of me again. Him and his teammate encourage each other down till the final moment but then in the crowd all I could hear was Blake yelling and screaming at me go ‘you’re almost there Braydan!’ So I follow his advice and I start sprinting and I slow down because I thought I was at the end because last year this was the finish line. My mum yells ‘keep running you’re almost there!’ so I start sprinting again, as I go past the finish line I hear Blake, Sam and a few others yelling and saying ‘Yeah! Great job!’ and so I finish 3rd and I get my certificate. My mum comes and hugs me and says ‘One better than last year’ I replied in an exhausted voice ‘1 point for each kilometre’.

Amazing things happen

Do you know what Autism is? The following video is an introduction to autism that aims to raise awareness among young non-autistic audiences, to stimulate understanding and acceptance in future generations. It is intended to be viewed, discussed and shared widely by anyone but especially teachers and parents.

5/6 Camp


Posted by Miss Scarrott | Posted in camp, Year 5, Year 6 | Posted on March 31, 2017

Camp Kangaroobie was a blast! 116 students and 14 adults for 4 days of mud and mayhem. We climbed ropes, paddled canoes, competed in games, tackled an obstacle course, explored the farm, sang songs and learned bush dancing. The whole group had an amazing afternoon at the beach building sand castles, climbing sand dunes, splashing about and just relaxing. Press play to see just a few photos from 5/6 Camp 2017.


Our favourite memory of Camp Kangaroobie

Sabrina – ‘I like the ropes because we worked in teams.’

Blake – ‘When Miss Scarrott spoke to a Donkey it froze.’

Harshita – ‘The night walk because it was exciting and fun’

What was your favourite moment on camp?
