Year 2 and Year 3 Excursion

Last Friday Years 2 and 3 set off on an excursion to Bunbury. First we visited Taffy’s Lolly Shop. We learnt from Mr Morris about old fashion candy making. He was very funny! We watched him create buttersnap and use the melting chocolate machine. We got to spend each – there were so many lollies to choose from.

Then we went to White Rocks farm in Brunswick. Mr & Mrs Partridge, who owned the farm, took us through an old classroom, old house and showed us machinery from a long time ago. Then we were amazed by the modern milking machines . It was so cool!! The cows rotate while they are milked.

We had a fantastic day and learnt so much about food production.

Culture Day

On Wednesday 3 June 2015, the school celebrated Culture Day. It is an annual celebration at St Matthew’s of the many diverse cultures we find in our world. It also emphasises the importance of appreciating and accepting different cultures other than our own. The children experienced didgeridoo playing and story-telling with Olman Walley; belly dancing with Monique D’Alton and Sharon Ackerman; discovering Noongar language and personal stories through booklets and doll making with Geri Heydon; and dyeing fabrics naturally with plants and rusted items with Marcelle Riley. The children also learnt about many of the world’s cultures through special artefacts with Mrs Milton; and Mrs Dyke taught our children some exciting new games from around the world.

The success the school enjoys is, in large part, due to the interest and involvement of you, the parents, in the many varied activities and experiences organised for the children.
