LEARNING in Year 3

 

As part of our PYP Inquiry, 'Where We Are In Place and Time', we enjoy an excursion to the local historic site, Schramm's Cottage and later visit The Shrine of Remembrance.

Built in 1874, Schramm's Cottage provides a clear contrast for students to see how different life was compared to today. Students explore the property and learn a great deal about how our community has changed over time.

Our visit to The Shrine is always a moving and real reminder of how past events affect the present. The interesting stories we hear about WWI and WWII help students to understand the importance of remembering and understanding significant events from our past.

INTENSIVE SWIMMING PROGRAM

 

For two weeks our Year 3’s attend swimming every day at Aquarena. Everyone has a great time learning how to swim and staying safe in the water. On the last day they have a fun day and play games in the pool.  Here are some of our past water kidlets in action:

CAMP | Anglesea Recreation Camp

Our very excited Year 3 students will venture to either Anglesea or Mt Evelyn for their 3 day camp - but not even the cold or rain will dampen their spirits! Students are treated to a broad range of activities including Orienteering, Hiking, Indoor Rock Climbing, Initiatives, Skate Boarding & Estuary Discovery. Camp is a fantastic opportunity for students to develop independence, organisational, leadership, social skills and risk-taking in a supportive, encouraging and caring environment.
