The Junior String Orchestra, made up of students from Years 4-6, has been busy rehearsing in their individual Year levels over the last few months. In the last week of Term 2, they came together for the first time to play as an orchestra and to hear how all the pieces of the puzzle fit together. After working hard over
Here are some fun photos from the Primary School’s airport adventure, which took place in the last week of Term 2. The students showed their documents to Karen Friede – Customs Officer!

Students in the Primary School got friendly with a variety of Australian animals like Serendipity the
“The Year 4 students had a Bioeyes incursion to investigate Zebra fish. They are important as they use them for medical research. On day 1, Laura from Monash University came and explained to us we were going to be mating and growing some Zebrafish and we were all really excited.
