Our Curriculum

Thursday, 1 December 2016

As of next year we will adopt the new Victorian F-10 Curriculum in its entirety. As parents you may not recognise too many changes, however when staff are planning teaching units, the new curriculum will influence the timing of skills and concepts being taught, the essential learnings focussed upon and if and when these need to be assessed and reported upon.

Our school will continue to offer our well-regarded specialist learning areas with Music, PE, Art and LOTE (German) being provided. The highly valued Year 1 Reading Recovery program will also continue.


Grade 6 Graduation

Thursday, 1 December 2016

This will be held on Thursday, 15th December from 7.30pm at BSE auditorium. We would ask everyone to be seated by 7.15pm. This night celebrates the achievements of all of our grade 6 students. Prior to the formal part of the evening, the children will have a dinner at school with their friends and teachers from 6.00pm - 7.00pm, then board a bus for a short tour around Bendigo, arriving at BSE for the formal part of the evening to commence at 7.30pm.

Grade 6 students will have a rehearsal at BSE on Thursday, 15th December from 9.00am-3.00pm.


Step Up Day

Thursday, 1 December 2016

On Monday, 19th December our current Prep to Grade 5 children will be involved in a “Step Up” transition activity. From 11.30am-1.00pm on this day the children will be ‘moving’ to their 2017 classroom with their 2017 classmates. In all cases they will be spending time with their 2017 teacher.


Interview Day 2107

Monday, 21 November 2016

School Council have again approved for our teachers to conduct an interview with parents on the first school day of 2017 (Tuesday, 31st January). This day will be counted as a school day; hence all students will be required to attend the interview also. We received some very positive feedback from the interview day held at the start of this year and plan to provide a very similar experience.
