What a year the Senior Soccer girls had this year……. Undefeated throughout the interschool matches to finish on top of the division 2 ladder!!!!!
This then meant we had to play off against St Johns the division 1 winners…….and………what a great game that was.
The competition was very evenly matched and both teams played really great defense. It wasn’t until mid in the 2nd half that the first goal was scored by St Johns………before we knew it the game was over and we had lost 0-1
We are all very proud of our achievement and our team spirit.
GO FEPS!!!!!!!! GO GIRLS!!!!!!!
Friday 20th of May saw children from grades 3 to 6 travel to Woodleigh Senior Campus to compete in the annual District Cross Country.
The children were fantastic giving their all in the races they ran, helping our school come 3rd in the junior section, 4th in the senior section and 3rd overall in our division.
There are approximately 120 children in each race with all of our children finishing between the 20’s to 70’s.
Our 2 best runners this year were Matty W who ran 8th and Maurice P who ran 11th.
Congratulations again to all the children that competed. A job well done
On Wednesday !8th May children from grades 3 to 6 competed at Ballam Park athletics track in the district field events. We were very lucky with the weather on the day.
All the children competed with good spirit and sportsmanship to achieve the best results they could in their events.
Wednesday the 4th of May saw Brendan from Disability Sport and Recreation come and visit us. He explained how he had had an accident as a young man and become a paraplegic. He told us all about how he learnt to cope with life and how he had to relearn how to do many of the things he always took for granted.
After his talk Brendan took us outside were we got to sit in a wheelchair and play basketball.
On Tuesday 19th of April we had Jimmy Webster and Patty McCartin from St Kilda Football Club come and give us a talk about setting goals for our future. After that they took us outside were we had a kick around of the footy and we played a few games and won some prizes.
Now look at this magnificent photo (up above) , ok it may not look so magnificent because you can’t see my beautiful face but moving on… what you may see in the photo is a TROPHY . Now guess what we won that for, WE WON IT FOR THE BEST ATTENDANCE for week 1 term 2.
The sad thing was there wasn’t as much celebration like I thought there would be. There was no congratulations balloons not even a PARTY!!!L Besides that at least all the class members of 5/60 know that we are #1 for attendance!!!! J

I did enjoy water safety but I thought it would have been a little bit more challenging and maybe they could of added something like just relaxing in the ocean and talking and stuff.
I loved water safety because we got to get in the water this time!!! My favourite thing was swimming with the life jackets. I also really liked the iron man/woman challenge.
We learnt about what to do if you or someone else is in trouble at the beach, we also did some fun activities. Then at the end we did an iron man race and played beach flags.
At water safety we learnt things to do when someone is drowning. I enjoyed all of it but my favourite was the big race!!
Water safety was fun and great for learning survival skills. My favourite activity was wearing the life jackets and pretending we were stranded in the ocean…..we all had to stick together.!!!
At water safety we learnt to swim with life jackets, body boards, lifesaving tubes and much more!!
My favourite was doing the relays at the end and we had to go as fast as we could!!!!
Tuesday the 23rd February the whole school went to Canadian Bay Beach for an excursion to do rock pooling. Once we arrived we jumped off the bus and set off to find our buddies. We walked along the beach to go to the rock pools….
Canadian Bay is located in Mount Eliza.
Some lucky people found crabs and sea stars.
We had perfect weather for our mornings rock pooling but it started to heat up really quickly so by snack time everyone was very hot!!!!!!
We jumped back on the bus, came back to school and all received an icy-pole from the PFA ladies………..They were delicious!!!!!!
On Friday 5th February we had a visit from the Federal Opposition Leader Mr Bill Shorten and Ms Peta Murphy, Labor’s candidate for the federal seat of Dunkley.
They were met outside the front of the school by our School Captains Monique and Jordan where they were then shown to our Prep grade. Mr Shorten and Ms Murphy had a brief chat to our new Preps before heading out to our Junior playground for a media conference.
A very exciting morning…….
This year we were really, really lucky and received out grade 6 tops in the second week of school…..we were SO excited!!!!!!!!
