COMMUNITY NEWS & EVENTS
Our 2017 Year 6 School Leaders
SEA, I CARE – DOLPHIN RESEARCH INSTITUTE
The 'i sea, i care' Ambassador program is offered for students in Years 5. Four students are chosen to be Ambassadors from each participating school for that year. The students learn about what lives in our bays and waterways, and the many issues facing them. Through peer-teaching workshops, the Ambassadors develop the skills and self-confidence to pass their knowledge on. They tell their peers, lower classes, school assemblies and other groups about Victoria's Living Marine Treasures, and that they're too precious to lose! Congratulations to Hannah, O, Louise S, James O and Deon B who are our Dolphin Ambassadors for 2017. The ambassadors recently had a trip out on the bay aboard 'The Moonraker' which included a swim with the seals.
The Bunnings BBQ is on Saturday 25th March. If you can assist for a couple of hours please leave your name at the office or email.
On Thursday the 9th of March (Year 6) and Friday the 10th of March (Year 5), students from Our Lady of Fatima attended an Open Water Learning Experience run by Life Saving Victoria. Rosebud/McCrae Life Saving Club open their doors to us for these two days of the year and we can use their facilities and see how a local Life Saving Club operates. The program on the day is run by Life Saving Victoria and the students rotated through
8 activities. We were very lucky this year to have some fantastic weather! The students had a fantastic time as they rotated through the activities. The students represented our school very well and the feedback from Life Saving Victoria representatives was very positive. A special thanks to Karen, Teresa, Julie, Meaghan, Anthony and Katrina for their help and attendance at these days. Please see the current newsletter for photos.
