Primary 10/3/23: Care for our Environment

As we move through the month of March, it is important to remember our responsibility to care for the earth. In Genesis 2:15, we read that God has placed us on this earth to be good stewards. Year 2 students have been learning about Clean Up Australia Day.

How can we use this to serve one another?

Each grade level will have a designated area of the school that they need to care for and keep clean. From a young age, it is essential that we instil the value of being good stewards of the land. By doing so, we can help them develop a lifelong habit of taking care of our planet.

Clean Up Australia Day is an excellent opportunity to teach our children about our actions’ impact on the environment. It is important to remind them that even small actions, such as picking up litter or recycling, can make a significant difference.

At our school, we are committed to doing our part to care for the environment. We continue to work with our students to understand the importance of reducing, reusing, and recycling and how their actions can have an impact. As parents and carers, we can also do our part by modelling good habits for our children. This can include using reusable bags, recycling, and conserving energy by turning off lights and appliances when not in use.

Working together can create a cleaner and more sustainable future for ourselves and our children. We hope you will join us in this effort by encouraging your child to be a good steward of the earth and practising environmentally friendly habits at home.

Thank you for your continued support of our school’s mission to care for the earth.

Kind Regards,

Mrs Coote
Primary Deputy Principal

Leadership Training Day

On Tuesday 7th March, 19 Year 6 students attended a CFU-FIT Leadership Training Day with Mrs Hingston and Mrs Shaw. Year 6 students from other schools who were interested in learning about the Bible and leading others also attended.

When asked about what they liked about the day, the Year 6 students all agreed that they learnt how to share the Bible in fun ways. They are excited to try some of the ideas when they start running lunchtime Bible Studies for Primary students in Term 2.

Bullying No Way! Day

For Bullying No Way! Day, Primary School took time to learn about what bullying is and what they can do to prevent it. They enjoyed visiting other grades and completing some fun activities together, such as making bracelets and bookmarks. Thank you to all of the staff involved for your wisdom and enthusiasm for the wellbeing of the students.
