Today Jindivick School children and teachers travelled by bus to Neerim District Rural Primary School for a Group Day. It took us about 35 minutes on the bus. On a Group Day 4 small country schools meet and spend the day learning with each other by doing special activities. The day had a sustainability theme. The Foundation Grade took their friend from Argentina, Goos the Whale.
Goos is with Alyssa and Keisha at the Treasure Hunt.
Taylah and Goos found this very long Gum Leaf on the Treasure Hunt.
Look at the beautiful school grounds. Can you see the children searching under the big trees? We also learned about energy sources, worms, compost and made insects from natural found objects. It was a lot of fun.

Teacher Linda from Dallas sent three teddy bears to Primary School 11, situated in Parana Mini
and Chana Rivers. They had a super time with the kids but the pink teddy bear wanted to go to another
school situated in Carabelas River. so he went there by school water bus. kids from second grade with teacher Zulma were very happy to see him, because now they are learning some words in englih to write to their friends in America. They sent to Dallas a teddy bear and letters for the kids. His name is
Honey. but Honey went with a national symbol called escarapela. you can see it on his chest. it was
made from a silkworm cocoon. And that is a nice story: they planted a native plant called anacahuita,
and silkworms went to live there! how important it is to plant native plants!

At the end of February we had a picnic in our school grounds. Goos liked playing games with us. We had running races, sack races and games. Goos liked to meet the families of our new Prep students. Hannah and Annabel liked to run with Goos.
Alyssa and Mrs Price are telling Goos the rules of the game. We all had a lot of fun at the picnic.
