Prep A & Prep W were incredibly lucky to have a visit from some special guests during the week.
We have been learning all about the weather in Term 4, and Minnie’s grandparents, Farmer Philip & Julie, payed us a visit to talk about why weather is so important to farmers.
They drove down from the country with a mother sheep and her 2 two week old twin lambs!
Farmer Philip & Farmer Julie brought the lambs in to the hall for us to look at.
Minnie and Archie had a turn at walking them around so the Preps could see them and pat them!
Then Farmer Philip answered all the Preps questions about farming, the weather and the lambs.
Ms Woodhouse even got to have a cuddle!
Belle Vue Primary would like to say a big thank-you to Farmer Philip & Farmer Julie for helping us to learn some more about the weather and for bringing along some of your farm animals. We loved it!Read More »

As part of the strong transitioning program for our students, Belle Vue students are annually invited to visit Balwyn High School. All grade 6 students are invited to Balwyn High regardless of the high school they will be going to. This approach aims to familiarise our students with a high school environment, learn about what support structures high schools have to assist students and the opportunities they will experience.
Past Belle Vue students also come and address the current students and are there to answer any questions they may have. This year, students experienced a science lesson in the fantastic science lab facilities that Balwyn High have to offer. This day is a significant part of ensuring students feel comfortable with their transition to high school.Read More »
The Preps were lucky enough to have visit from Elke and her dog Oskar, who came in and taught us how to be safe around unfamiliar animals.
When we see an angry dog we should:
- Stand still
- Put our hands by our sides
- Be as quiet as a mouse
- Look at the ground.
Here we are practicing:
Then we did role playing, acting out different scenarios for when we meet unfamiliar dogs:
When we see a dog that looks friendly and we would like to pat it, these are the steps we should take:
- Walk up and stop in front of the dog and it’s owner (not too close)
- Ask the owner if it’s ok to pat their dog
- If they say yes, walk to the dog slowly
- Close your hand into a fist and let the dog sniff your hand
- Walk to the side of the dog, and have a pat!
Here are a lucky couple of Preps who got to pat Oskar:
Thank-you to Elke, Oskar and the Responsible Pet Ownership program.
We will definitely put these skills to good use!Read More »
