Grandparents and Special Friends Day
At grandparents and special friends day our students eagerly show off their school and invite our visitors to join in a variety of learning activities.
This year we asked our Grandparents and Special Friends to tell us about the “olden days”. “Show and Tell and interviews helped students gain an insight into school life in the past. It is surprising the things that our Grandparents and Special Friends found in the back of the cupboard to bring to school to share. We had a roast lunch, played “snakes and ladders”, checkers and chess.
Grandparents, special friends and students always enjoy this truly wonderful day.
Swiss Italian Festival
Our local “Swiss Italian Festa” is a focus of our year. The school community enjoys the “grande parade” through the streets of Hepburn on the festival day. The students take pride in opening the concert at the local sound shell, where they sing “Advance Australia Fair” in Italian.
Parents work together on this day to provide food for the revellers and use this as a small fundraiser. The school hall is also home to the “Children’s Art Exhibition” where we display artwork from students from both our schhol and other local schools in the area
It is always a special time of the year for the school and the community.
Rotary Music Concert
Students enjoy the experience of performing on the big stage in the Daylesford Town Hall each year for the annual Rotary Music Concert. It is a great time to showcase the school and our great music program and to see what other school in the area are doing.
Our art work is on display each year at the Daylesford show. We always ensure that we support our local community as this is part of students learning about social responsibility and strengthens their self esteem.
