Aboriginal Children's Day Celebration
By Kaiden Bethel 1B
On Thursday 4th of August, the Year 1 and 2 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students went to celebrate Aboriginal Children’s Day at Harris Street Reserve. We did painting, drawing, clay making and sand art. We had so much fun and can’t wait to go back.
Year 5 - Commonwealth Games activity
Some of the Year 5 students have been reading about how the mascot for the Birmingham Commonwealth Games was chosen.
Perry the Bull is bright, colourful, energetic and totally representative of modern Birmingham and the West Midlands. He celebrates diversity, community and the regions heritage as well as its future.
With the Commonwealth Games coming to Victoria in 2026, we researched and discussed what we thought would make the ideal mascot to represent us for the games in Australia. The students named their mascot after their favourite games athletes.
I think you’ll agree that Patty the Platypus (Patty Mills), Cathy the Koala (Cathy Freeman), Cate the Koala (Cate Campbell) and Madison the Wombat (Madison de Rozario) would all make excellent mascots!
