Asian Language Festival

Today students from pod 2 who have shown a keen interest in Korean got to visit the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne and participate in an Asian Language Festival with other schools from across the state.

We were taken on a quick tour of the Art Gallery before settling down to watch a performance of Asian dances.

It was a great day and everyone took home something new.

Tyler “I learnt that on when dragons are on Chinese clothing, the more claws the dragon has, the more powerful the person is.”
Lochlan “I learnt were the Art Gallery is in Melbourne.”
Jack “My favourite thing was the Vietnamese Buddhist dance that we saw at the end. It was calming.”
Zavier “I learnt about all the strange art work.”
Leah “I liked watching all the different dances.”

Bushwalking In Creswick

Today the Outdoor Ed group made their way to Creswick’s St George Lake. Upon arrival we headed east to the Koala park and attempted to find some Koala’s. Unfortunately we didn’t find any of the sleepy animals in the trees although we had a good time following The Goldfields Walking Track through the bush.

Koala

Please reflect on this morning’s journey and answer the following questions:

1. What direction did we travel from Ballarat to get to Creswick? (Hint, you may have to use google maps to find out)

2. What was the St George’s Lake and Eason’s Dam used for originally?

3. The Koala Park was built in 1942 for a few reasons. What were they?

4. Can you name the types of tree’s that koala’s live in, and also what type of leaves they eat?

Good work boys!
