Around the World in One Day

What a day! Our countries arrived at the airport and went through the pre-flight checks.  Our flight was delayed for 5 minutes while waiting for a late passenger.  Pre-flight checks were completed with our stewards demonstrating flight safety.  We eventually took off from Ferny Creek Multi-Purpose Room Airport early Thursday morning.  Throughout the remainder of the day many flights continued around the world with stop offs at Mexico, Brazil, Madagascar, Great Britain, China, New Zealand, Greece, France and Italy.  Passengers used their passports in all these countries to gather various facts to take back to their home country!  We all landed back at Ferny Creek MPR Airport at about 2.45pm, just in time to close the Ferny Creek Olympic Games!   What a day!!

Friendship Chair

We’re so excited to introduce our new Friendship Chair to the playground. Every Ferny Creek Student has welcomed it with their own thumb print, and in return our Friendship Chair welcomes anyone feeling a little low or lonely to come and pause for a moment and find a new friend!

Education Week & Open Night

Education Week 2016 

Each year we are very proud to show our community what our school is all about.

Wednesday 25th May: ‘Open Morning’ 9:00-10:00am

Parents, friends, grandparents invited to visit our classrooms while children are working.

Thursday 26th May: ‘Teddy Bears Playdate’  2.30-3.15pm. 

Our 2017 Foundation students will be attending a Teddy Bears play date, having games and songs with some of our current Foundation students. 2017 Foundation parents are invited to partake in a tour with Matthew during this time 2.30-3.15pm.

Thursday 26th May: ‘Open Night’ 6:30-8:00pm 

Our last two years Open Nights have been a huge success and we are sure that this will be again. Our focus last year was history and this year it’s going to all about the whole curriculum. Families will get a booklet with a question related to each grade (they have to visit every classroom to find the answer and then submit their booklet to have the chance to win a prize).

Choir will perform at 7:45 in the multi purpose room and we will end the night at 8:00. Tea/coffee and biscuits/cake will be available in the multi purpose room. We will have a café set up for families to sit and have a break if they wish before the choir starts.

2016 School Leaders

Very pleased to have our local Member for Monbulk, Deputy Premier and Minister for Education James Merlino at assembly today to speak to the school and present our weekly awards. Most importantly he also presented this year’s school leaders with their badges.

According to James, Ferny Creek assemblies are among the most fun in the state!! We think so too!! Congratulations once more to our school captains and house captains!
