Indigenous Rotation Day

We have started our final school term for the year with a Bang!

Last Wednesday, to kick start our Inquiry for the term, the 3/4 Team held an Indigenous Rotation Day.

Each class rotated to all of the other 3/4 rooms to immerse themselves in different aspects of Indigenous life. The workshops we participated in were; Photographs, Videos, Geography/Location, Paintings, Fact and Fiction Sort, Symbols/Drawings and Dreamtime Stories.

Miss Fraser and Alyssa ran the Painting Workshop. We read a Dreamtime story and had a go at doing the dot painting a picture from that story.

We learnt so much from such a short time in each workshop. We wrote down what we learnt and wonderings we had from each workshops. You can see some of them in the slides below.

What else did you learn from our Rotation Day? Do you like learning from other teachers in workshops? What is one thing that surprised you about Indigenous Life?

Great Cycle Challenge

Miss Fraser is taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge throughout October to fight kids’ cancer!

Right now, cancer is the largest killer of children from disease in Australia AND 3 children die from cancer every week.

Last year Sarah Round (Prep teacher) participated in event and rode 500km. This year other teachers are taking part and we have made a Killara Primary School team, where we aim to raise funds to support the Children’s Medical Research Institute to continue its work in developing treatments and finding a cure for childhood cancer.

Miss Fraser’s goal is to ride 50km by October 31st. If you would like to sponsor her challenge you can do so through this fundraising page  – or support our team. *All donations are tax deductible.

Stay tuned for my riding progress!

Thank you for your support.
