Thank you morning tea

The Edrington staff were recently treated to a morning tea to acknowledge and thank them for the exceptional work they do. Sincere thanks to the parents for their generosity and to our wonderful HPFE for organising the occasion. The morning tea was delicious and very much appreciated by everyone!

Red Shield Appeal

Edrington Middle School has once again supported the local Salvation Army Red Shield Appeal. Throughout the day on Monday, 29 May, some of our Year 7 students were in Main Street, Berwick collecting donations on behalf of the Salvation Army.

This was a wonderful opportunity for our students to gain some insight into the role of the Salvation Army and to give their time to support such a worthy cause.

Early Learning Centre

Supporting Indigenous literacy

National Reconciliation Week is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.

Our ELC Book Swap was a great way to promote social justice with children and families while raising money for the Indigenous Literacy Foundation. Children could bring in a book from home and swap it for one on our Book Swap table and make a gold coin donation.

All money donated to the Indigenous Literacy Foundation helps provide culturally relevant books and learning resources to children and families in remote communities across Australia. Donations also support the publishing of books written by communities, for communities, in languages of their choice.

Thank you to all the ELC children and families for making positive contributions to change lives and be a voice for generations.

Junior School

LEAP Week – Junior School Shop

In a world of ‘tap and go’ young children can find it challenging to have hands-on money experiences. So, during LEAP Week, our Junior School students had their own Junior School Shop where they could practise their money skills.

During the week leading up to the JS Shop, students earned play money so they could purchase an item on their JS Shop Day. Students practised counting, swapping amounts and estimating what they needed to buy their wish item. Our Year 4s did a fabulous job of calculating change as the shopkeepers.

This was the second year we have run the shop and we certainly noticed an improvement in their money skills this year. We encourage all families to give their children the opportunity to practise counting money and change by having them buy items using cash.

Middle School

Languages Week

The Middle School is looking forward to celebrating Languages Week next week. An array of activities has been organised including cultural dancing, Japanese Taiko drumming, making bento boxes, baking pain au chocolate croissants and a special language assembly. A big thank you to our language staff for organising such a fantastic week.

Years 5 and 8 build camp connections

The Years 5 and 8 camps provided a wonderful opportunity for students to bond with each other. It was fabulous to see them complete all the challenges presented to them and we are especially proud of the way they conducted themselves and how they supported each other throughout the camps.

They will have some great memories of their experiences and look back fondly on their time at Phillip Island and Marysville.
