It's Easter Time

Prep work for Easter

The Easter bunny visits the preps 

Our SRC (Student Representative Council) held an out of uniform day for the last day of term 1, Thursday 20th March. Students were able to come out of uniform and were charged $2. $1 goes to the Royal Childrens Hospital Appeal in Melbourne and $1 goes to the SRC fund for the School projects.

 Food technology students were busy making hot cross buns today, as these are a traditional treat at Easter time, in Australia.

Primary students were also treated to a visit by the Easter bunny.  Much to their delight, an Easter bunny (alias our SRC president) brought them mini chocolate Easter eggs.

Now we go on a well deserved 2 week school holiday’s break after a hectic term 1.

  1. Anne –

    I love learning about your school and part of the world through your blog – thanks for the great pictures 🙂 Our schools can’t play up Easter very much because of the religion/state issue, but in the elementary schools they do a few little things. It’s interesting that we can’t celebrate it in school, but have Good Friday off……hmmm. Anyway, enjoy your holiday!

  2. Whilst reading other blogs I came across yours and I love it! I am a primary school teacher in England and reading your work was refreshing , sometimes funny, sometimes I got a sense of pathos…..I have never met you but I get a feel for who you are in your blog…well done…reading your work closed the space between us!

  3. Those hot cross buns must have been delicous!
    Oh…….sorry i forgot to say hello.Anyway hope you have a good year.
