2024 Prep Open Day

Last Thursday afternoon we held an open afternoon for our 2024 prep children and prospective parents.  Thank you to Mrs Taylor and Miss Martin who went above and beyond in organising another wonderful school event.  Below are some pictures taken of the afternoon.

We have been taking many enrolments for Prep for next year – both from siblings of current students and from new families to Wallington. If you have a child currently attending 4-year-old kindergarten and are looking to enrol them for Prep 2024, please complete the enrolment forms which are available from the General Office or by CLICKING HERE.  Should you or anyone that you know is wanting a school tour, all they need to do is contact the school. 

 

POT HOLES in our Carpark

Thank you to the parents who have pointed out to us the pot holes in the carpark.  This has been an ongoing issue at our school and it is a reminder to all users to drive slowly and stop in the designated area only.  We have and will continue to make our carpark as safe as possible. 

 

Life Education

This week, students had the opportunity to partake in lessons taken by Life Education teachers.  They teach children and young people aged between 3 – 13 the health, safety and well being skills to make better decisions throughout their lives, creating a holistic impact on their long term health.  Our students had a fantastic time with the educators and Harold – the famous Life Ed giraffe!

Garden Club Updates – WOW!

Thanks to our many community volunteers and especially to Kat.  Thanks for all you do and how you help take care of our garden and students.  A few pictures to finish up the term.  The end of term lunch time disco was an absolute treat as was the weaving.

Art Gallery

SNAPSHOT

"This Term the Preps explored collages and printing in Art!

Students took inspirations form a range of picture story books relating to forests and all the good things you may find in them. Such as, “Let’s Go Outside” by Amy Pixton. This is a fun book that allows for children to interact with the story, stretch tall like a tree and buzz like a bee. We tore newspapers, used sponges for printing and created a beautiful Silver Birch forest with Bluebells. Doing so, we looked at the colours we may see, textures we can create and shapes and patterns within our art work".
