Wally has arrived!

Prep S and Prep K are so excited that Wally, A3 and A4's mascot has arrived for his first visit to Australia. We have lots of exciting things planned to share with Wally. On his first day he seemed pretty tired after his long journey so Maggie and Daisy (our Magpies) helped him to settle in and showed him around. Just look what they got up to!

Congratulations Preps!

We are very proud of our Preps and all they have achieved this term. They have settled into school and are kind and caring classmates. At our last assembly for the term Ms Egan presented each Prep with a special certificate.

Thank you also to the Grade Six buddies who do so much to help their Prep friends feel happy and safe at school.

Hairy Harry's

We have learnt so much from growing our Hairy Harry's. Here are the last photos of our experiment - we took the Hairy Harry's out of the cupboard and added water and sunlight to see what would happen.

The Harry in the cupboard with water is now turning green. The Harry with no water or light is now growing and the Harry with no soil is still growing lots of hairy hair!

The Preps were very excited about taking their Hairy Harry's home to continue observing what happens.

Our Friends in New Zealand!

Today we skyped with our friends from New Zealand All Things Great and Small and Good Things Come in Small Packages. We were very excited to meet them at last. Prep S and Prep K will be sending their wombats Wattle and Wally over to New Zealand to visit A3 and A4. They are sending their giraffe Wally to us. This will be Wally's first visit to Australia so we are very excited and will share lots of wonderful experiences with him.

Wattle and Wally, our twins, are having their first trip away - we will miss them but we know they will have a FANTASTIC time and share lots of stories with us when they come home.

Thank you to A3 and A4 for skyping with us today!
