Prep students from Our Holy Redeemer Primary School have been learning a different sound each day as part of the Sound Waves Spelling Program. They have finally finished all the sounds and are now excitedly exploring the many different ways to spell these sounds. At assembly during the week they received their Sound Superstar Certificate.
The Grade 3 / 4 students enjoyed their overnight camp to Narmbook Environmental Discovery Camp in Elaine, which is a historic working farm some 90 minutes from Melbourne. Narmbool encompasses a number of significant ecosystems including pastures and grazing land, native bush and a variety of waterways. Sustainable farming is carefully balance with environmental education, research and the enhancement of biodiversity through re-vegetation and habitat improvements. Our students enjoyed their time away and proved to be excellent ambassadors for OHR Primary School.
Macleay Park in North Balwyn was a popular sporting field recently with our students participating in School Cross Country and District Cross Country. Congratulations to all our students for their winning performances and we wish them well with their performance at the Division Cross Country which will be held this Monday, 30 May.
