Last week both Blue and Green 4 y.o. groups from Bellevue kindergarten came to watch us rehearse for our school concert.

Throughout term 2, the grade 5/6 students have been studying Australian Democracy. Building on from our first hand experiences in Canberra earlier in the year, we have explored the roles and responsibilities of government, the Australian democratic system, operations of parliament, the electoral process, along with looking at Federation and the different experiences and perspectives of Australian democracy and citizenship throughout history.
To help students in gaining a deeper insight into Australia’s history and political system, we like to make the lessons hands on as much as possible. In the attached photos, we can see grade 5/6 students participating in role play scenarios of the electoral process and passing a bill in parliament.Read More »

On the 1st June, Belle Vue held its inaugural Upcycling Competition. We wanted to help students (and families) ‘rethink’ what they would normally do with their various discarded materials (throw out, recycle or CREATE!), as well as see how creative they could be when ‘reusing’ their waste.
Students across prep to grade 6 were asked to find materials at home that would have otherwise been thrown out or recycled, and use them to create something new.
There were two categories that students could choose from: make something that can be worn, or something that can be used.
A huge number of students participated in our competition, and their effort and creativity was outstanding!
Well done to all students (and families) who got involved!
