Stories Up High

gangsta-grannyAs part of the ‘Stories Up High’, The Yarra Ranges Writers Festival is holding some exciting literary events this year.

One of these involves the work of David Walliams , the renowned English author of many children’s books including ‘Gangster Granny’. The organisers of the Festival are looking for reviews of David Walliams books.

The reviews need to include why you liked the story, what was interesting, favourite characters, funny parts, why you would you recommend it to others to read, and so on.

If we get enough children from Ferny Creek entering we will receive a set of David Walliams books for the school.

Also the two best reviews from Ferny Creek PS will receive free tickets to a fantastic ‘Stories Up High’ event. So the holidays would be a perfect time to read one of his books and get your review underway. You have until the 20th April to read one of his books and write a review.

Hand in your review to Cheryl when you have finished. Have fun reading!!

We have a new website

Old-websiteOur previous website was a beauty, and we shall miss its chirps – but we needed to make a website that was easier to update, and able to be viewed on smart phones and tablets for all of you parents on the go!

Thanks to our old website, and hopefully we shall be as fond of this new one in the near future too!

Twilight Festival 2014

What a great time we all had at our schools Twilight Festival. It was lovely to see our community pull together to create an inviting atmosphere in our school. The grade 5 /6 students did us proud as they planned, researched, organised and ran their own stalls  which covered a huge range from fairy tent to tattoos from sponge the teacher to the sale of a computer game which the students devised and created themselves.

Captain Koala payed us a visit as well as the Sassafras Ferny Creek CFA. We were treated to performances by our school choir, recorder group, rock band and jazz band (one of our talented teachers joined even joined them for the encore). The children were involved in creating colourful and inviting stalls which included plants, pocket money stall, lollies, chocolate coin toss, balloon making, a frog bog stall and name the teddy (the lucky winners of the teddies will be announced at assembly on Friday).

Let’s not forget the grand opening of the Ferny Creek Frog Bog, which was officially opened by the Shire and where we were presented with the sustainability award.  What an achievement.  A special thank you to all the parent helpers and especially Rhian Jessop who coordinated the event.
