Our Language Expo took us around the world!


👋 Ciao, Hola, Bonjour, Halo, Kon'nichiwa.  This term we held our first ever Lanuage Expo.  Our Year 5 & 6 students were asked to pick a non English speaking country of their choice and researched many different aspects on their chosen country.  They presented their projects which included many props, costumes and food.  The evening was great success and the positive feedback and support from our amazing school community was much appreciated by our team and students. 🙏

The Kitchen Garden Foundation Program


In line with our sustainability school value, we are excited to introduce this inspiring and fun program founded by Stephanie Alexander AO, one of Australia’s most recognised cooks, food educators and authors in 2004.  The purpose is to educate children and young people about fresh, seasonal, delicious food so they form positive food habits for life, as well as build the skills to help them be more hands on in the food production process. We can also see this program having a positive impact on the mental health and wellbeing of our students, as they build resilience when trying new things, work collaboratively and enjoy sharing in experiences with their peers.

We acknowledge the assistance from Blair Boyer, Minister for Education, Training and Skills for securing funding to support this initiative.

6O Excursion


On Wednesday the 6th of September the Year 6s had an excursion to Adelaide Oval, the Museum, and Parliament House.

We first went to Adelaide Oval and met our tour guides. During the tour we saw many incredible things including the changerooms, scoreboard, the coaches debrief room and much more. Our favourite part of the oval was when we ran up the players slope and a crowd (fake crowd) cheered us on.

Next, we walked to the SA Museum. We were split up into 3 groups and viewed the Museum’s exhibits, ranging from the Giant Squid, animals, and Sir Douglas Mawson exhibit.

After that we walked to Parliament House and our tour guide was Member for Heysen, Josh Teague. We got to see the House of Assembly and the Legislative Council. Josh taught us about the different levels of Parliament, and the various roles in a debate.

The day was full of hands-on environmentally-focused activities which included conducting PH testing of soil samples collected from across our school environment, identifying character strengths of our YELP team, making clay models and studying flora and fauna charts to identify key features of native animals and plants.

Our YELP representatives worked amazingly well as a team and showed excellent leadership skills in communicating their team goals and their learnings from the day.
