Miss Dawson is going to China!


Ni Hao everyone,

Very very soon I am heading off to China! Mr Mullan, Mrs Joyce, Mr Price and I are getting on a plane and heading to Beijing.

On our visit we will be visiting different schools and exciting historical monuments like the Great Wall of China.

Here is a video to show a little about Chinese culture:

I will be leaving on Thursday the 10th October – the countdown is on!

Our Fence


We are very excited to be close to putting in our fence. ‘What fence?’ You say? Well! The young people of Prep D are so protective of our garden outside of our rear door that we discussed putting up a fence to make sure it doesn’t get trampled.

Follow our journey to the almost finished product from the initial planning to the installation of the fence.

Hmm if our fence was too high would we be able to see the plants? Emilee, Jordan, Esther and Sienna measure to see if this is correct.

Design time! Rylie gets right to it while Kohan and Kellia are thinking hard.

Emilee sharpens her tools. Our brainstorming of what our fence could look like.

Stay tuned for more photos of our painting process and how we manage to install our fence.

2nd Semester Here We Come!


To parents and students,

Thank you for a wonderful 1st Semester. We worked so hard to get where we and produce the outstanding work we’re coming up with.

Most importantly, we had fun doing it!

We also appreciate your ongoing support and I loved seeing some of you at parent/teacher interviews.

Stay tuned for more updates over the holidays when I will plonk down with a cup of coffee and fill you in on the excellent work we’ve been doing.

Enjoy the holidays and see you in 2 weeks!

Miss Dawson and Mrs G.

Dr Seuss Day!


Well this truly was an absolute success! Well done to the kids who got into the spirit of the day by dressing up and wearing their colours, to the parents for making the costumes possible and coming along, and to the staff who pulled the whole day together.

Please enjoy these photos from the exciting day.

Harmony Day , 21st March 2013


Thank you so much to the parents who attended our Harmony Day activities. As your reward you have now become internet blog superstars!

For those who couldn’t make it, we read a story called ‘It’s okay to be different’, and had many discussions about why it’s okay and the many differences we have.

Here are some gorgeous shots from the day.

Our Train Trip To Morwell


As part of our Inquiry Unit about ourselves and the community, the junior unit undertook a trek down to the Traralgon train station where we all got on a train and went to the wooden park in Morwell.

Along the way we saw so many different aspects of our community, such as: tractors, cows, bridges, creeks and shops.

Now you can sit back, relax and enjoy some photos we took on the day.
