Goos is swimming around in our Unifix blocks while we make patterns.


Look at the patterns we have made.


Goos Goes to a Group Day

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 at Our School Picnic

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.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            IMG_5525                                                                                                                     Hannah and Annabel liked to run with Goos.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     IMG_5536

Alyssa and Mrs Price are telling Goos the rules of the game.   We all had a lot of fun at the picnic.

Goos at the Jindivick School Concert


Here is Goos ready to watch the school concert.

I think he has the best view as he is on the speaker right next to the stage.


Grade 6 boys are introducing a song and Mrs Price is getting her grade ready.

Can you see Goos on the speaker?


Grade Prep/1 acted out the legend from Argentina of Goos the Whale.

Goos was very happy to see the children acting out his special story.


Here are the children making Goos the whale with all the animals inside, and the three Tehuelche chiefs behind.

Thanks to teacher Lis and the children in La Pampa, Argentina for teaching us this legend.
