St Johns Ambulance Visit

Yesterday all grade 5/6 classes had a visit from staff members of St Johns Ambulance. The students were taught what to do in an emergency through the acronym DRS ABCD. As most accidents occur in the home, we would recommend having a discussion with your child about this process.

Investigations Homework Question

Pretend to be a meteorologist – write in your homework book or record a video of a weather report that will warn viewers of extreme weather in their area and the threat of a Natural disaster that this weather may cause.

For example: “Melbourne is preparing for a heat wave on Saturday with the temperature set to reach 41 degrees. The CFA has warned residents to plan their evacuation in case of a fire emergency. Up North, Queensland will need to baton down the hatches as ‘Cyclone Beacy’ gathers speed …”

Hint: Use a map of Australia in your report.

Senior Cross Country

Congratulations to all the students who participated in yesterday’s Cross Country. It was terrific to see so many of you pushing yourselves to do your personal best. Well done to Kade, Ella, EJ and Zoe on winning their age groups.

Investigations Homework Question

Create a ‘Natural Disasters’ mind map listing as many disasters as you can research. Try to find connections between the disasters, include a description and be as creative as you can using illustrations and colour! (this may be hand written or created using a program such as Popplet).
