Welcome back!

Term Four has many learning opportunities for all. This week we have enjoyed many highlights of creating community learning celebrations with the much-anticipated opening of the River Play Area in the Prep/Year 1 Play Space being one of these.  This new development highlights the creativity of our community with many aspects of the ‘water park’ being constructed from recyclable materials from our College.  The Grand Opening highlighted the excitement and connection to the play that our students are so excited to share.  A special thanks to our Grounds and Works team for such a wonderful re-development for our students to master more aspects of nature play, learning water flow concepts and caring for our environment.

Year 3 Education Outdoors Program – A sense of place!

Our Year 3 Community enjoyed their first overnight experience at the Valley Campus, as part of the Education Outdoors program.  Using the provocation; how do we connection to place and others and how do we better understand ourselves in nature. The students enjoyed the chance to explore rafting on the lake, exploring nature artwork and the thrills of the high ropes ‘possum glider’.  These experiences are just some of the learning moments to develop further the curiosity, courage, collaboration, self-regulation and resilience.  Thank you to all the staff that supported students throughout this program.

Year 12 Final Assembly at the Junior School

On Thursday 26 October we are excited to welcome back the Year 5 class of 2016 – for a special tribute as part of their Valedictory Day.  A time to thank the community and to wish well for the future beyond Scotch Oakburn College.  We are looking forward to seeing our Year 12 students and families back on the Elphin Campus.
