Try our slideshow creator at Animoto.

On Wednesday we (Nasra, Yusra, Hiba, Hanae and Zakaria) went to the Royal Children Hospital. We met Tara, she was a teacher.
She told us about all the different type of jobs there are at a hospital, like nurse, social worker, doctor and physiotherapist.
We saw Meerkats, a fish tank and a mini elephant.
Then we saw the tooth fairy and we played golf. Then we got cup-cakes!
It was a great experience.

Exploring costume making at the Arts Centre

The girls had a great time visiting the Arts Centre to find out all about costume making. They were very lucky to see first hand the new costumes for Swan Lake. Once again I got to go with the careers exploration group and was able to enjoy the amazing work that goes into making costumes for a stage show and ballet.

Photos and music has been selected by the group for their slide show.

A visit to RMIT for careers exploration

This term we have two students from RMIT studying Social Work. One of their projects is taking our Year 3- 6 students on self-elected mini-excursions to various workplaces to experience different career options. The first group headed off to RMIT to explore what it looks like to be a tertiary student. They toured the buildings and grounds, the library and the student hub. Here is a compilation of their photos from the day…
