On the last day of Winter, the Ferny Creek Primary School community embraced the chill for our annual Footy Day! The day kicked off with a colourful assembly and some hearty singing of club songs. We acknowledged all of our wonderful dads and then enjoyed watching them don their boots and go head to head with the Year 6s in a mighty Footy match!
All year levels had stacks of fun taking part in the AFL Footy Roadshow inflatable activity program and then to top off a great day, there were hot pies and sausage rolls for lunch! Thankyou to everyone who helped make this day such a great success!
Cameron Semmens, award-winning poet and performer, delivered fun and lively poetry workshops to Ferny Creek Primary School students last week as part of Book Week. Students were delighted by Cam’s ‘performance poetry’ and inspired to craft fantastic pieces of their own.
Pick My Project – Voting is now open!
‘Pick My Project’ is a Victoria-first community grants initiative, with at least $1 million in funding available in each metro and regional area. The projects that garnish the most votes at the conclusion of the community voting process will have the opportunity to turn their project into reality. So please spread the word among your family and friends! Our project is entitled:
‘Community Inclusive Environmental Learn and Play Space’
The aim of our project is to incorporate full accessibility for all in our existing outdoor environmental learn and play areas. This includes our existing Kitchen Garden, Henhouse and Frog Bog Wetland areas. Included in this project will be fully accessible sensory garden (Bush Tucker) and a story telling space among our gum trees. We are looking at creating pathways, edging, boardwalk, railings, fencing, gates, sleepers, raised garden beds for disabled access, plants for the sensory garden and a covered area with seating.
Voting is now open until 17th September. We strongly encourage you to vote. Every vote counts!
To vote simply log onto www.pickmyproject.vic.gov.au, register, insert the name of the project or suburb into the search bar, then cast your vote.
