Why are we participating in this amazing competition – The Archibull Prize?
One of our school’s key focus areas is Environment. From our grow tunnel, bush tucker, vegetable gardens and orchard, to our Environment Club of K – 6 students which is made up of worm herders, power rangers and recycling monitors. The students and the wider community embrace a “greener” more sustainable lifestyle. Our calf and our junior farming champion would broaden this passion. We are all super excited!
As a small school we work really well as a team. The students love working on whole school projects and do this extremely well. The staff are conscious of providing extra opportunities for all students. Our dynamic hard working passionate staff make this possible. K-3 are studying the Science Unit Paddock to Plate this term, which has shown already how enthusiastic our children are about farming.
We are trying to boost the awareness of Indigenous Australia in our school and local community, we aim to incorporate meaningful and accurate indigenous aspects into our Archibull Prize entry.
Who will be involved, who will benefit?
All 7 classes, their teachers, teachers aide and Principal are really looking forward to being a part of this adventure. The children will benefit as will their learning, we envisage that the Archibull Prize will be incorporated through all KLAs.
