Moto GP

Today 16 lucky students travelled over to Phillip Island to the Moto GP. Everyone had a terrific time due to the numerous freebies, the promo models, meeting Travis Cloke from Collingwood, and of course the motor bikes… Huge thanks to Lurrece McEwan for coming along and being a great help.

Passion Projects

This term for Investigations the grade 5’s will be completing Passion Projects. They will have the opportunity to choose something they are passionate about and present it to the class in their own unique way. We are encouraging students to think outside the box to create something memorable to inspire their passion within others. Here is a proposal video to help get the students thinking about what they could do. What’s your passion?
