Events in Previous Years
Victorian Principal’s Association Conference
In October eighteen students headed off to perform at the VPA conference at the Pullman Hotel. In front of hundreds of principals and teachers we danced in a limited space. Twelve students from the Star and Crystal Dance Troupes performed, ‘Heal the World’. Six students from the Diamond Dance Troupe performed, ‘When You Believe’. It was a great experience for all of us.
Real Life Adventures - Farmer Wants A Cow
Last week we went on our ‘Farmer Wants A Cow’ adventure. Our mission was to learn as much as we could about dairy. So what better way to find out than to spend a couple of days on a working dairy farm? John & Rike McCormack own a dairy farm in Gippsland and were generous enough to welcome us into their home and share their life and expertise with us. Everyone had an incredible time experiencing new things and learning new skills.

Last week we went on our ‘Bin It’ adventure. It was smelly, dirty and at times very noisy! Yet despite the awful smells and loud machinery, we learnt a great deal about where they take all the things we throw in our bins.

Real Life Adventures - Court in Law
Last week a selected squad was assigned to the adventure, ‘Court in Law’. We allegedly committed the crime of having fun while learning about our justice system. Being apprehended at the East Melbourne Police station, we had the opportunity to interview a real police officer. We examined his uniform and the weapons police carried with them while on duty. Backup was called in and we were escorted to the watch-house to be interrogated and locked up in a cell.

Real Life Adventures - Egg Farm
Real Life Adventures is eggspanding! Last week we ran our first adventure for Grade Fours. We visited a working egg farm and eggsplored how eggs are collected from the chickens and then packaged for delivery to be sold. Some were determined to discover what eggsactly came first, the chicken or the egg? Although we didn’t necessarily answer that question we had an eggcellent time.
Real Life Adventures - Trees Alive
Last week a group of students from Grade 5/6 were selected to attend the adventure, ‘Trees Alive’. This was a physical study of ropes, levers, wheels, pulleys and muscles. Despite uncertainty in the public transport system, we headed up to Belgrave via bus and then train.
