As Term 3 draws to a close, we would like to wish all families a happy and safe holiday break and thank you again for your continued support of our programs. There is no school development day at the start of Term 4. Staff and students start back on Monday 14th October 2019.
On the last Tuesday of Term 2, Beeliar LDC students joined with the Beeliar mainstream students to participate in NAIDOC activities for the day. The children dressed in the colours of the Aboriginal flag and were split into 5 groups, each taking turns at separate activities.
First was a whole school NAIDOC assembly with special guest speaker, Mr Len Thorn who gave a very interesting talk about the Beeliar area and surrounds.
A Bush Discovery Tour was held in the bush outside of the school next to Possum Glade. The children walked through the bush looking for and recording the different types animals and plants they found. They saw quenda holes, and possibly even snake holes!
Rock Art / Braiding – children did dot paintings on rocks using Aboriginal symbols like kangaroo tracks in the colours of the Aboriginal flag.
Leaf Art – the fabulous Beeliar mainstream art teacher made every child a clay leaf tile which the children decorated with paint pens. These will all be gathered and made into an amazing mural around the school. NAIDOC letters were also coloured-in to be used as decorations in classrooms.
Story and Dance – each group was given a native animal which they then got to make up a story / dance to perform in front of each other. They watched Aboriginal dancers beforehand and did a wonderful job of their own interpretations.
All Indigenous children gathered in the staffroom with AIEO Marie Lindon to make kangaroo stew and damper for all of the children and staff to sample at lunchtime.
On Friday 26th July, TA22 celebrated their 100th Day of School with their friends in TA18.
We’ve been counting the days since the start of the year and we’ve been lucky to have had a visit from ‘Zero the Hero’ on every day with a zero in it!
To celebrate our 100th day we dressed up like we were 100 years old! We wrote all about what it might be like when we are 100. ‘Zero the Hero’ left us lots of fun activities too. We had to use 100 pattern blocks to create a picture, we painted 100 gumballs, played ‘Roll to 100’ with our friends, found 100 chicks hiding in our room and so much more. The big highlight was making a crown out of 100 stickers! We’ve learnt that making groups of 10 helps us build big collections like 100.
At the end of the day, we ate some yummy cake and got a treat that Zero the Hero left for us – a maze for having an ah-maze-ing 100 days. We had so much fun and now we are wondering whether we’ll get to Day 200!
We are now well into Term 2 and there are a few important dates for your calendar.
