Science Week

Loving our multi media minibeasts artwork that we have been creating this week. Some pieces were completed on Monday with an incursion visit from the Field of Mars, and some were completed today. It was a lot of fun and my students enjoyed the hands on process. This beautiful artwork is made with real blossoms! My students sourced these blossoms from our school grade and with the help of our gardening expert Pressed the flowers. Today the flowers were dry enough to add to our artwork. 

Friday Fun

After such a crazy week I was very naughty and alas, forgot to write my ‘attitude of gratitude’ post for Friday. A staff member set up this fun game to bring joy and happiness to our staff. I’m grateful to work with such generous people.

Classroom Draws

Pretty sure this is something that anyone working in a school understands.. every classroom has a secret draw.. but the dividers are a new idea.. if it was more hygienic I think it would take off in our school šŸ˜‚

Plants and Seeds

It’s been a very busy term so far.. so many projects underway! More to come in the next few days! This term we are learning all about plants and seeds. Today our gorgeous Tahlia came back to visit us after her travels through Asia. She bought us such thoughtful, beautiful gifts.. including this amazing fabric lantern! We are truly blessed to have Tahlia as a regular volunteer in our room. Glad you’ve arrived home safely.


Today we had a surprise ‘smile’ themed celebration in honour of surviving week 1… think all things yellow, a staff sing along, smiley faces, and lollies. Go team! 


Today my colleague and I presented two topics at SEPLA (Special Education Conference).. and for the first time in a very long time, I felt confident in myself, happy, and whole. It’s not easy to present in front of a crowd.. but it’s easier when you love your dress! It’s an even sweeter moment when that same dress a few weeks ago was too tight to wear! That sounds shallow.. but it is not. When you are happy and proud of who you are.. you can move mountains. If a dress makes you feel more confident in yourself.. well watch out mountain ranges! I’m so proud of us and grateful for this experience. Thank you Megan šŸ’• and thank you to our Karonga family for your support x ā€‹
