Last week it was National Science Week with the theme of Food Different by Design. Each class has been focusing on learning and investigating different everyday foods. The Year 3 students investigated apples.
We commenced the lesson by learning about the story of the Little Red House.
Then each team of students were given an apple to investigate.
The students had many interesting words to describe their Pink Lady apples. From all accounts the apples were the best that they had ever tasted! Thanks to Gilberts in Southlands Shopping Centre!
Pre-Primary began this new term by celebrating NAIDOC Week through many different activities. Students have thoroughly enjoyed learning more about bush tucker and exploring in our own bush food garden here at St. Emilie’s.
Students are enjoying their morning Investigations where they have been practising their skills in creative ways using their imaginations! Miss Van Ryt is settling in well to Pre-Primary Blue and has felt very welcomed and is excited for the semester ahead.
Thanks for reading! We will see you again soon! Love PPB & PPG!

Practicing sustainability empowers children to develop an appreciation of the environment and its relationship to their own world.
Our marine environment learning centre
It empowers them to build knowledge and explore values that lay the foundation for becoming an environmentally responsible adult.
We rescued the marine creatures who were tangled in plastics polluting the water
We developed learning centres to foster children’s understandings to value and respect the environment.
We collected the rubbish that was polluting the water
The children are learning to appreciate the interdependence between people, plants, animals and the land.
Our bushland environment learning centre
The children collected the rubbish that was littering the bushland and put it into the rubbish bin
Through hands on experiences, children can explore and learn about their local contexts and environmental issues. Children can develop the critical thinking skills needed to make informed decisions for change, in their own lives and into their future.
