Today we learned about catalogues. We looked at the prices to see how much the things cost. In the catalogues there was food and other items like washing machines. While we were looking in the catalogues we chose items that we would li ke to purchase. Then we cut them out and stuck them beside our shopping bag. After that we worked with a partner to calculate the total cost of our shopping.
Come in to the grade 1/2 classes to check out our magnificent money work.

Students have been preparing for their Student Led Conferences that will be held on Thursday 21st July (3/4W) and Thursday 4th August (3/4S). The day is a celebration of the student’s work throughout the year and is an opportunity for them to show off their achievements. One of the many ways of preparing is to have mock conferences and the students have enjoyed playing the different roles (student, teacher and parent). This has also allowed them to clarify their thoughts about why they have selected each piece of work. We are all looking forward to the real conferences.Read More »
Yesterday, Belle Vue students were lucky enough to have representatives from St John First Aid, come and take Primary School First Aid Awareness courses for all classes.
The grade 5/6 students showed a good prior understanding of First Aid, as well as a keen interest and enthusiasm to learn more and participate in the demonstrations.
All of the students took a lot out of the sessions. Below are some of the 5/6’s reflections.
“The session was really fun and simple which made it easy to understand” – Anisha
“I learnt how to put someone in the recovery position and why you put them in it, so they can breathe better” – Alyssa
“In this first aid session I learned about CPR and the recovery position as well as refreshing my mind on drsabcd” – Pharrell
“I found it interesting because if there is someone in danger I’d know what to do other than calling 000” – Steven
“At the end of this session, I think I feel much more confident since I now know what to do in this situation” – Nathan
“I learnt about the steps to take to help the person in need. They are DRSABCD: danger, response, send for help, airway, breathing, CPR and Defib” – CheriseRead More »
The senior choir will be participating in their first State Schools Spectacular, Massed Choir Rehearsal this Wednesday at the Melbourne Town Hall.
The students have been practising both at home and at school, which is paying off as their singing is sounding more confident and polished. The choir needs to learn 14 songs (alternating from Part 1 to Part 2) for the concert in September.
We are looking forward to finally hearing the sounds that both parts create when put together!Read More »
During Term 2, Belle Vue participated in the Division Hockey 7s Tournament. Students committed to regular training in and out of school time to prepare for the event. This dedication paid off as both the boys and girls team performing exceptionally well and represented their school proudly.
The boys team were competitive in all matches and managed to win 2 games. The girls team won straight through to the grand final where they unfortunately lost 0-1. Well done to all students involved!
