On Tuesday we were so excited to receive our certificates and medals for completing the Premier’s Reading Challenge this year. Congratulations to all the children who were involved we can’t wait to do the challenge again next year!
Today we were lucky enough to have Paramedics Margoux and Shane (also Ruby and Grace’s parents!!) bring an ambulance to school. They told us we need to know our address and the ‘000’ phone number in case of an emergency. Margoux and Shane showed us some of the special medicine they keep in the ambulance, how to take blood pressure, the stretcher and the wheel chair. We even got to see the flashing lights, hear the siren, and take a walk through the ambulance. Thanks Margoux and Shane!
In science we have been learning about water and how we can use it wisely. Today we had Kelly (Brayden’s mum) come in to speak with the R/1 classes about how she uses water in her florist shop and how she tries to reuse and recycle the water she uses. The children loved listening to and asking Kelly about her florist shop and what she does. Thank you for your time and for coming in to talk with us Kelly!
Today we had a visit from the CFS.
CFS stands for Country Fire Service.
We learnt about how to ‘get down low and go, go go!’ and also how to ‘stop, cover, drop and roll’ if there was a fire.
We also learnt that our house needs to have a fire alarm installed and what ‘good’ and ‘bad’ fires are.
Then we went to look at the fire truck and we all got a turn to hold the fire hose!
Thank you to all the volunteers from the Happy Valley Country Fire Service for their visit and all the work they do!

This week our class had the opportunity to visit the Nature Play Area on Campus. The children had a wonderful time exploring and playing in this area together. After our time in the Nature Play Area we visited a R/1 Thiele Class and shared one of the Book Week books together as our Book Week activity.
