The Biggest Playdate

Recently at Newlands we raised a total of $4,837.00 for The Miranda Foundation helping children with cancer. One hundred per cent of funds raised go to Monash Children’s Cancer Centre.

Sangwell House casual clothes day raised $1,273.00 and a whopping $3,564.00 from the sausage sizzle, 1,800 sausages were consumed.

We had so many hands on deck; Newlands staff, parents, Facilities staff, Senior School students, random people asking if they could assist when we looked a bit ‘sausaged out’. It was a wonderful team effort.

Early Learning Centre

Over the holidays

Throughout the holiday program and into the beginning of the new term, learning has centred around nature exploration, creativity and environmental consciousness.

Our children delved into the realm of sustainability by setting up and understanding the workings of worm farms, fostering an ethos of environmental responsibility. Nature walks provided opportunities for discovery and appreciation of the world around them with children noticing the colour and textural changes in the leaves due to the arrival of autumn. The children then utilised the vibrant autumn leaves collected to create artworks that celebrate the beauty of the season, which tied into stories read at group times.

We look forward to the continued opportunities for learning that the change in season brings.

Year 8 BioEyes Incursion

BioEYES at Monash University is an award-winning, innovative, hands-on approach to teaching secondary students about science.

Over the course of a week, students nurture the development of zebrafish embryos, observing the transparent eggs change from a single-celled zygotes to free-swimming larvae.

Students develop their critical thinking skills and perform collaborative experiments as they study the lifespan and development of the zebrafish, anatomy and genetics.
