Newtown is a H2O only School
Did you know our school is a H20 only school?
Our Arts Team have designed a new sign celebrating our achievement! Susan Parker from Barwon Health presented the sign to our Arts Team at a recent assembly.
Fresh Fruit Breaks
At Newtown Primary School we actively encourage Healthy Eating and Oral Hygiene.
Every class takes a ‘fresh fruit break’ at 10 o’clock each morning to refuel. Some classes call this ‘POF Time’ (Piece of Fruit Time).
As well as bringing fresh fruit from home, students may also select from fruit donated to our school by FUSO Geelong in conjunction with the Citrus Growers in Geelong.
Our Healthy, Happy School
Chelsea from Healthy Together, Geelong visited our assembly to acknowledge our work on building a healthy, happy school environment.
She presented the school with a sign, certificates and $500 towards our continued work in this area.
Well done Newtown Primary School!
One Team, One Goal
Hi! We are from Newtown Primary School, Victoria.
Our ‘One Team, One Goal’ entry is a video on diversity.
We understand the strength of a community who looks after each other and supports each other no matter what their background is or where they come from. Having a diverse community is interesting as we get to learn about different cultures through hanging out with our friends from different countries and also in what we learn as part of our school curriculum. Recently in our school’s main corridor, we had a big map with pins displaying where all the different students in the school came from, it was amazing that kids from all over the world attend Newtown Primary School!
We think it’s important for everyone to have the enjoyment and privilege of a multicultural and diverse community. This year in 2015 we have had a segment each week at our school assembly where one of our multicultural students will teach the whole assembly a small part of their language, often ‘hello,’ ‘how are you,’ and ‘goodbye.’ We think our school is unique to learn a new language every week!
The main point of our video was to teach a wider community about what we are learning,…
to embrace diversity by listening to people’s story. The stories we have heard so far are just incredible and hard for Australian’s to understand sometimes. That’s why it is so important for us all to share our stories so we can understand each other a little bit better.
We hope you enjoy our entry!
