Forensic Science

Last week, Joe Clarke, a local police officer came to all the Year 5and 6 classes for a Forensic Art session. All students had the opportunity to become forensic sketch artists. Joe gave the students 20 clues and from the information they needed to sketch a suspect! The purpose of this task was to demonstrate that observation skills are very important to be an effective witness. Thank you Joe!

Grade 5/6 Sport

On Tuesday 23rd June, the grade 5/6 boy’s hockey team went to the Division Lightning Premierships at the Hockey Centre. On the first game, we played Nichols Point, beating them 4-1. The second game saw us beat St Pauls 7-0 to win the Premiership. The boys played extremely well and we couldn’t have done it without our coach Miss Milne. We learnt lots of great skills and learnt how to dodge and get passed players to score lots of goals. We are looking forward to the next round at Swan Hill…. Let’s get practising boys!!    By Connor and Aaron 


Last Wednesday the division 1 netball team went to Mansell Reserve to play in the second round of interschool sport. Our first game was against Nichols Point we beat them by 2 goals. Our second game was against Sacred Heart; sadly we lost by 4 goals. Our third game was against The Lake, we won. We made it into the grand final against Sacred Heart; sadly we lost by 6 goals. Everyone played well and we would like to thank Ms O’Connor for coaching us. By Lara T and Margaret




On Tuesday, the 5/6 girls football team went to Aerodrome Ovals to play in the Lightning Premierships. We played against three schools. Our best game for the day was against Sacred Heart.

We came second and we all had a great time. By Lara M and Zoe S

6M and World Environment Day

Last Thursday 6M, Ms Milne’s class, represented our school for World Environment Day revegetating an area at Johnson’s Bend where there has been a lot of off road driving. The students saw first- hand problems with erosion and evidence of cars driving through the area after extensive rain.  Thank you 6M for your tree planting in tough conditions. The ground was very hard to dig even when the holes were soaked with water.

The trees planted have a great chance of survival as luckily there was rain after the planting!
