Event News: Big Day Out – more photos!

On Monday 25th November, Beeliar Year 3 students combined with Willagee and Bull Creek Year 3 children to attend the Big Day Out. All of the Beeliar students arrived at school very excited and ready to go. After collecting our friends from Bull Creek and Caralee Schools, we were on our way to Fremantle.

Our day started with eating morning tea and a play at the Esplanade Park in Fremantle.

We then walked to Cicerello’s where we were met by Craig who was hosting our tour.  The students then participated in an Aqua Tour which included touching and learning about live sea creatures such as a starfish, sea cucumber and  lobster.  Most children were very brave and touched a Port Jackson Shark.

After this, we walked across the road to Bather’s Beach where the children built sandcastles and decorated them with the treasures they had collected while they were beach-combing. Then it was back to Cicerellos for a delicious lunch of fish and chips before setting off to Melville Super Bowl.

Miss Claessen and I were very impressed with the students’ ‘Stand Tall’ behaviour, bowling ability and the ease with which they were able to form friendships with children from the other sites. Finally, it was time to board the bus for the return journey back to our schools with everyone feeling that it had been a wonderful and exciting Big Day Out.

Event News: Big Day Out

On Monday the Year 3’s from Bull Creek joined the Year 3’s from Willagee and Beeliar for the Big Day Out. What a day they had!

First was Recess on the Esplanade. The children ate their snacks and then played on the playground. It was lovely to see the children showing courtesy to the young children at the playground and waiting for their turn. It was also lovely to see some of the Year 3 children showing bravery and persistence when trying new challenges on the playground. Some of the teachers also explored the cool playground and tried out the climbing frame and slide!

Then we headed into Cicerellos and listened to a talk about some of the sea creatures in the tanks. The children were even able to touch some of the creatures. Once again we saw some children showing bravery when faced with a new situation.

After that, we headed out to the beach and all the children collected some interesting items from the sand. We ended up with an interesting collection and one lucky person even found a fossil of a tree root.

The next challenge was to build a sandcastle on the beach. Lots of the children decorated their sand castle with their collection of beach items.

Then we all washed our hands carefully and headed upstairs at Cicerellos to have lunch, fish and chips, of course! By then, everyone was hungry and enjoyed their lunch.

Our last stop was the bowling alley where the children showed off their bowling skills. Not only were they expert bowlers but also good sports and this activity was enjoyed by all!

Finally, we said good-bye to our Willagee and Beeliar friends and went back to school on the bus.

We were very tired after our busy day but we all had an awesome day. What a great way to celebrate graduating from the Fremantle LDC! Miss MacDonald was sick so I got to step in at the last minute and go to my first Big Day Out ever. I was so impressed with the maturity and behaviour of all the children yesterday. Even at the end of the day when everyone was tired, the children were awesome. I was so lucky to spend the day with them all!
