Our Community Walk
As part of the Grade 1 inquiry unit, the students recently went on a walk around our local community. They visited the police station, library, post office, supermarket and the local park.
Read some of the experiences written by the students below.
The police station
The police station is noisy and there is a long car. It is big and the police put in bad guys in the jail. The police keep us safe. I like the police station because it is fun.
Cybersafety in the classroom
As part of our ICT curriculum this term all grades are learning about 'Cybersafety'. We are watching movies and solving online challenges to identify ways we can keep ourselves and our friends safe online.
