In sport this week we have been practicing our basketball skills. This week we learnt how to do a chest pass and a bounce pass. We worked with partners to play the game ‘bump’. We had such a great time out in the sunshine on this beautiful winters day. Check out our pictures below.Read More »
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!

During Term 2 we have been carrying out a number of Biodiversity audits within our school with a particular focus on the wildlife living at Belle Vue.

We also recorded all the different bugs that we found in a variety of places around the school grounds.

As part of our integrated unit “Watch It Grow!” we have been growing lots of different seeds and watching how things develop from a seed into a seedling. One thing we have noticed is that our sunflowers and broadbeans have grown best when we keep them inside overnight. We think this happens because the plants don’t get too cold or get frost bite.Read More »
