The year 5s were on Glenelg Beach this afternoon as part of their Sharing the Planet Unit. We considered the important role that a clean and healthy coast plays in the life of all animals and plants which rely on it.
The children were then able to enjoy the beach by having a sand sculpture competition.

Our students have so many fantastic opportunities at SPW.
This week our Year 6 classes welcomed author in residence, Michael Panckridge. Michael has written the Little Legends Series, The Cursed, The Vanishings and many others and has spent the week working with students, workshopping narrative writing. Michael is a teacher from a school in Victoria and has given up a week of his holidays to work with our students. He has inspired them to write and edit their stories, and we look forward to reading the finished products.

As part of the Unit of Inquiry on Living and Non-Living the Preparatory students had a special visit from Sharon, one of the school gardeners. Sharon from Glenelg Turf Ace spoke with us about her job and what she does to look after plants. The students then pulled on their gloves and worked with her to plant a variety of seeds; Cress, Peppermint, Lemon Balm, Mustard and Parsley. We are eagerly watching the Vertical Garden to see if our seeds start to sprout and are thinking about the best ways to care for our plants. What a wonderful partnership within our school community. ... See MoreSee Less
