Here are some great snaps of the Eid Multicultural Festival on Sunday 2nd September. You can click on them to enlarge.
It was a great community day. The sun was shining and there were plenty of people around. Thank you to all the DMPS crew who were able to come along on the day and help support our terrific school. Our school stand was welcoming and provided lots of iPad fun for the kids.
Our first day of school began with many smiles – from the children, the teachers and as you can imagine the parents too 🙂 Learning areas were set up in large open spaces and beautifully decorated with displays, soft furnishings, books, and artefacts. But what really made these spaces come to life was our children. They were pleased to be back at school, to see their teachers again and to be with their friends.
At Debney Meadows PS we are lucky to enjoy the extra support for learning by The Song Room. Our teacher is Zoe, and she works with all of our students once a week. Our students explore themes around identity and storytelling. They use their imaginations, share ideas, collaborate on song writing, sing, move and build confidence in the process.
Our Year P and 1/2 students have been using songs to think about ways they can deal with new situations, new people and being part of a group – a community. They are performing Yellow Bird on Wednesday 2nd November at Melbourne Town Hall as part of the Carnavale performance. As principal, this will be my first performance that I have the pleasure to watch. I can’t wait 🙂
Our 3/4s have had fun looking at the characters and stories in fairytales and fables and messages of dealing with challenging situations.
The 5/6 students have explored emotions through rap and blues and have worked together to create their own raps.

Thank you TSR for the great work you do with our students.
