Class 3/4 Bike Riding Camp At Dubbo Zoo “Best Camp Ever!”

The zoo trip was an incredible experience that combined the observation of wild animals in a caged environment, the social aspect of camps and the physical practise of bike riding. The children had plenty of time to ride their way around the many enclosures, listening to talks, asking questions, chatting, listening to the siamang ape opera. I don’t believe we missed one animal. Quite a few children chose to ride a second lap of the zoo – such energy and joy of riding!

Whole School Camp at Megalong Valley

Our Camp in the Megalong Valley was to discover more about OUR PLACE and hence the activities centred around immersing ourselves in the bush and understanding its cultural, geological and historical significance. Included in the whole school camp at Megalong Valley, was an all day visit and story telling by David King. The Megalong is his family’s place. They have been camping and living there for tens of thousands of years. Some of the highlights of the whole school camp were, camaraderie between children of all classes – cooee-ing and hurrays as each class arrived at the camp site, whittling by the fire, scampering by the creek, a frosty sunrise walk, gathering around the fire.

Winter’s Night By Candlelight

Oh the harmonising hum of Winter’s night. It was wonderful to have the school community gathered together. In this very special night, we take the time as a community to slow down, step out of the busyness of life and enter into a little bit of true winter magic – wonder, reverence, celebration and communal goodwill. We remember how nourishing it is to sing, to bring beauty into our lives, to gather together and feel our relationship with one another and with Mother Earth.

Friday Eve 22nd June, Winter’s Night

5:30pm CLASSROOMS BY CANDLE-LIGHT – start in kindy and journey through to high school, a quiet and reverent walk that will be a feast for the senses, a little bit of winter beauty in every room.

Once you have journeyed, gather outside the library and enjoy warming mead as we allow time for everyone to finish the walk.

6:30pm SINGING in the performance space. Songs from every class, the parent choir and whole school singing, finishing with a harmony hum.

LANTERN WALK to the LAKE – after the singing, children go to their classes to light lanterns. We gather as a whole school to walk to the lake, weather permitting.

HIGH SCHOOL ONLY (students and parents) – bonfire and lantern procession at school after the whole school lantern walk to the lake.

 

The Children’s Writing Festival was a great success.

What a beautiful day! To my view it all went so well, the sunshine outside a perfect complement to the sunshiny feel of the fair. A big thank you to all the people who helped to make this a great day. It is events such as these when you see the breadth and detail of the creativity and resourcefulness of our school as a whole. Community by community, this is how we can contribute to making a fairer and more sustainable world. To do it with celebration and friendship adds joy to satisfaction.
