We love celebrating the achievements of our students. Last week Blake M (Year 4), represented Victoria in the TFT National Competition. He represented Victoria as part of the Hip Hop small group. They were successful in winning gold at the competition. Congratulations Blake!
On Monday and Tuesday we had a visit from Lifesaving Victoria. Our Prep and Year 3 – Year 6 students participated in a Lifesaving Victoria incursion. Year 1 and Year 2 were not involved in the incursion as they have just completed their swimming program.
Grades 3-6 had a pleasant time learning about the lifesaving program, about the sea and what dangers are in and around it. Sam explained the dangers of the sea and land. He talked about phenomenal rip currents and unfortunately how our graceful rivers have been spotted with filthy and unsafe objects in them. It was a fun experience learning how to stay safe in our waterways.

On Monday the Grade 4s were lucky enough to experience a visit from Life Saving Victoria. They told us about the dangers around water and how to be safe at the beach. I learnt all about Slip. Slop, Slap, Seek and Slide when it is sunny and also about all types of currents at the beach.

On Wednesday our staff undertook a curriculum day at GMHBA Stadium. On our day the staff undertook CUST training (Community Understanding and Safety Training). Community Understanding and Safety Training (CUST) is delivered by community members who are associated with Local Aboriginal Education Groups and Koorie Engagement Officers, and aims to teach educators about cultural issues and boundaries affecting Koorie learners. This includes educating them on how to teach and include indigenous culture to ensure the learning environment is culturally safe and inclusive of Koorie learners and their families.
