Grade 3/4 Camp
Posted December 16th August, 2019
On Monday morning, an excited group of students headed off to Camp Coolamatong. It was the first camp for our Grade 3’s, who thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Students participated in Geocaching, Mountain Bike Riding, Rock Climbing and Bush Cooking, along with a boat ride to Sperm Whale Head and Raymond Island. They also participated in plenty of games (including night tiggy!) and got to explore during free time where they could ride unicycles, go on the giant rope swing and plenty more! It was a pleasure to attend camp with the kids and they represented our school wonderfully. The camp had a theme of Resilience and Integrity for the 3 days, with the key messages being:
Resilience: You don’t have to be the strongest person to show resilience.
Integrity: Be honest and be the same person both with people and when nobody is watching.
Thanks to Sharne for organising and leading a great camp!
In the Garden
Posted 16th August, 2019
Each Thursday, Mrs McAdam takes a small group of students from the Junior Area to learn about the garden with a focus on oral language. Students get to water, harvest and plant whilst having in depth discussion around what they are doing.
In the coming weeks, you will see a mini store within the school where parents can take seedlings, herbs, worm juice and other garden products for home. All we are asking is for a gold coin donation! Students will be collecting and counting the money, which will go back into the Kitchen/Garden program.

On Monday 12th August at 7pm in the BER Building, we are hosting a Parent Seminar from BullyZero.
In an ever changing landscape, particularly with Social Media, this is a great opportunity to come along and find out about Bully Prevention tips and ask questions that you may have about this topic.
Cows Create Careers
Posted 8th August, 2019
This year Briagolong PS are participating in the Cows Create Careers program. This program helps to provide practical, insightful dairy industry education and career opportunities to school students throughout Australia. The Cows Create Careers program was started by the Strzelecki Lions Club in Gippsland, Victoria in 2004 and has now grown into a national program.
The program involves our school hosting two dairy calves who we will raise for 3 weeks. Carol and Geoff Landy have been kind enough to loan two jersey calves for this time. Over the next 3 weeks students will be feeding the calves twice daily, monitoring their health and measuring their growth compared to target growths on a regular basis. By bringing calves into our school, students who may not have had the experience of rearing calves will have the opportunity to learn of the different skills required in the dairy industry as well as the jobs that they may aspire to do in the future.
A huge thanks to Matt Cook for getting the shed ready!

This week, our Grades 3 to 6 students have been completing the Bike Education program, which culminated in a road ride yesterday. Students completed both theory and practical based activities, learning to signal, ride in formation and be accountable on the road amongst other skills. It is important to follow up this learning with conversations at home about riding to and from school. A big thank you to the parent helpers who helped man sections of the course and assess riders as they went past.
