Working Bee

Our Term 2 Working bee is on Sunday 23 June 9am to 11.30pm.

You can come just for an hour or the whole time.

Any student can come if they are with an adult.

Students who come and help will be presented with a community certificate for helping at assembly.

A range of works will be undertaken such as weeding, cleaning, spreading mulch, cleaning signs, graffiti removal etc.

Jump Rope For Heart

Glen Huntly Primary is participating in Jump Rope for Heart this year – a fantastic fundraising and physical activity program by the Heart Foundation.

By participating in Jump Rope for Heart we get our students moving. We’ll have ropes available on the school grounds and encouraging everyone to help raise funds for lifesaving research and support programs.

Over the coming weeks our students will learn new skills, increase their physical activity, and learn about heart health. And the program will end with our school wide ‘Jump Off Day’ on Thursday 13th June where our students get to show off their new skipping skills to their friends.

Landcare Grant

THANK YOU, SIMONE AND THANK YOU LANDCARE!

Glen Huntly Primary School were very excited about winning the Victorian Junior Landcare and Biodiversity Grant.

This money is being used to create a wildlife passage in our large garden pots and to celebrate our new indigenous House Teams – Kurwan, Bael, Pike and Garrawang. It has also allowed us to engage renowned Indigenous artist Simone Thomson and her son Sean.

Simone is a Melbourne based Aboriginal artist who draws inspiration from the abundant textures and colours of this beautiful land, along with the ancestral bonds she has to the Birrarung (Yarra River) and Dhungala (the Murray River).

Simone painted one of our large concrete pots with earthy tones and depicted gathering places that also represented suns. She drew smaller circles which represented the students travelling from far and wide, from their own diverse backgrounds, to our gathering place – our school. The curves represent people sitting from a bird’s eye view.

Simone did an incredible artwork and even drew a boomerang hoping she can one day return for more painting when possible. We hope so!
